Nikon Rumors has a great roundup about their thoughts, tips and suspicions surrounding what new Nikon gear should realistically be appearing in 2013.
The biggest rumor for most shooters is the fusion of the D300s and D7000 lines. NR expects to see a Nikon D400 or D8000 that servers as a successor to both lines with the Nikon D3200 and D5200 rounding out the low-end consumer market. Personally, I think this makes a lot of sense now that there is a higher-end amateur camera with the Nikon D600 that’s just a little bit above the D300s price range (based on the launch retail price). Accordingly, a D400 or D8000 model could now slot easily between the D300s and D7000 to answer the prosumer sports and wildlife call with its APS-C sensor.
Additionally, NR expects a higher resolution full frame model (the D4x?) toward the end of 2013 that would likely be situated above the D4, and would use a 36MP or 52MP sensor. A show of hands for who needs 52MP please?
Amidst a flurry of recent rumors about a Nikon D600 and new lenses, the rumor mill has been relatively quiet about a replacement for the Nikon D300s. However, Mansurovs has posted a detailed spec list attached to a rumored Photokina 2012 announcement for the Nikon D400 – sporting a 24MP APS-C sensor and a $1799 price tag.
Check out the spec list below and let us know your thoughts about such an APS-C pro shooter in the comment section at the bottom of the page.

Now that we’re through the gauntlet of camera releases over the past few months, I suppose it’s time to fuel the fires for the next round for Summer and Fall 2012. What could be better to kick up the rumor mill than a book listing for the Nikon D400 on Amazon?
It’s available for pre-order and currently dated for September 2012.

Well, we must be getting close to something because Nikon has listed the D700 and D300s as discontinued. Just when the Nikon D800 will drop remains a mystery though.
What are you Nikon shooters more excited about? A new D800 or a D400? Any final spec wish lists as we approach D800- and/or D400-day?
