I just checked the Nikon Rumors site and the rumors have just started as a result of a yet to be published book in Amazon, France. According to the site, it will be a 24mp perhaps in February 2011? This is mind boggling. They haven't even released the D7000 and now the rumors started with the D700 replacement. I wonder how much will this affect the D7000 by people holding a little longer for the D800. I would like to hear your opinion.
