Nikon D800

New rumors on the Nikon front point to a replacement DSLR for the Nikon D800 and D800E next month. To be clear, that’s one DSLR that will serve as the successor to both the D800 and the D800E.

The new D800 model (possibly the D800s) will be closer in succession to the D800E due to the fact that it will not have an AA filter.
