My "guess" is that Nikon intends to use the rumored new Sony 20MP DX Sensor in the D400 and announce it late this Summer. It will be aimed at Sport and Bird Photographers. The body and features will be close to the D300. It will have slightly faster frame rate and a lot higher ISO The processing engine, buffer, and AF will be upgraded. So will the price (between a D600 and D800?). Basically $2500 for a D800 with DX Sensor.
The D7000 will be upgraded this Spring with locking mode dial, 1080P Video at 30 or 60fps, faster processor, and a new or upgraded 24MP Sensor It will not be the top of line or supper fast frames per second DX camera, and will be priced slightly above or near the D7000 released price.
