A tipster has sent in some info on the rumored Nikon D800 that he purports originates with a “very reliable source.” According to the tipster, Nikon will not be revising the D700 for a “S” model, as was the case with the D300 and D3.
Instead, Nikon will release a completely new model to replace the D700 – the D800.
Rumored Nikon D800 features from the tipster include the following:
He also tells me that the D800 will launch before Christmas.
I can’t confirm the veracity of this info or the reliability of the tipster yet. I am reaching out to him for further details in hopes to substantiate these rumors. Keep in mind that these D700x/D800 rumors have been rattling around for over a year now.
Stay tuned for updates on the D800 or whatever else Nikon decides to throw at us.
