Hi Robert,

Nikon is very good at keeping secrets, and anyone that knows for sure has signed a non disclosure agreement and can not say anything.
I am sure Nikon has more bodies in development. What they will be called and when they will be introduced remains to be seen.
Good Luck and Enjoy your Nikons!

Best Regards,
Marty

Nikon Rumors web site posted a comment that they had learned from an insider that the new camera replacing the D90 will be called D7000. They have been pretty accurate with their rumors, and pegged the D3100 before its announcement. The specs predicted for the D7000 are pretty impressive if they turn out to be correct. If so, for new buyers it will likely freeze sales of the D300s, which means it will be replaced soon also.

...except that historically, the X00 cameras have been upgraded first, followed by the x0 with a slightly lower spec & smaller body than its x00 sibling. So if they perform to past behaviour, expect the D300 replacement first

But that assumed business is usual. The D3100, by that schedule, should not have been updated for another year so there must be some change in thinking about release cycles.

You could be right. I can't help thinking that if the D3000 replacement is weighing in at 14mp then the replacements for the D5000 and D90 may be very interesting indeed.

The D7K will be the replacement for the D90, I think that will go in another forum....

Based on early comparison info I saw this am, the only downside to the D7k is fewer shooting modes than the D300. While there are other variances, it is a decent camera although a few bells a whistles on board make me wonder. Still-not bad new hardware at first blush.

We will see what the reviewers have to say. One thing that makes little sense if it is a D300 minus is they are selling it with the same lens that sold with the D90? Hmmmmmm...

I'd guess that the choice of the 18-105 is due to several factors:

- there's no higher-end DX midrange available that doesn't cost considerably more.

- the 16-85 would add at least $200 to the kit price.

- strong demand for the 24-120/f4 (and that would add $700+ to the kit price).

And I'll bet that the D7000 will be available soon if not immediately as body only anyway.

> it is a decent camera

Only "decent"? If it lives up to the specifications, it will blow the doors off the D90 and the D300s. It makes you wonder what is coming next. If the "loss" from the D300s is the shooting modes, it's hardly a loss as very few D300-level users use shooting modes. In exchange there's a shutter with a design life equal to that of the D3s/D3x, and that's something that D300-level users would really use.

In fact, if it weren't for the fact that I have a different camera to replace first, a D7000 could probably even replace my D3. (It won't, because it would replace a D2x instead.)
