New rumors suggest that Nikon will announce a special version of the D810 for astrophotography in the next couple of days.
If this turns out to be true, expect a similar setup to Canon’s 60Da, which features a modified infrared filter and a low-noise sensor with heightened hydrogen-alpha sensitivity and allows the camera to better capture red hydrogen emission nebulae and other cosmic phenomena.

The new 300mm f/4 VR lens is expected to be lighter than the current lens. It will feature a minimum focusing distance of 1.4m/55″ and a 77mm filter size.
We expect to see the Nikon D750 in less than 24 hours from now. While many details and ideas about the camera have been in the “reliable” corner of the rumor mill for a while now, it looks like we finally are getting a dose of the legit spec list in the eleventh hour.

The recently rumored Nikon full frame DSLR that’s expected in September may very well be a full frame sports shooter, complete with high frame rates and a lower resolution.
New rumors suggest that it won’t be a replacement for the current Nikon D610 and won’t be part of the D6xx line. Instead, the camera will be marketed as an “action” camera. As such, we would expect a better AF system than what we see in the D610 – and more along the lines of the 51-point AF system in the D810 and D4s.
A higher frame rate is also expected for an “action” camera – possibly in photos and video. Of course, if these rumors pan out, we’ll know more very soon.
