I seriously think Nikon will introduce a D400. Too many shooters-wildlife and sports and outdoor/sports journalists are clamoring for it. I'd take a D400 with say a 16-20 MP sensor, higher ISO capabilities, 8 FPS and the same control layout (including a dedicated AF-ON buttonn!) as my D300's as I can run them in total darkness.

I could get by with a D800 but the slow frame rate and giant files are drawbacks as I and other photojournalist types would prefer the above higher burst rate and manageable file sizes.

Of course, a D4 would also work but 6,000.00 is a bit much for some folks, amateur or pro. Especially, when you need 2 bodies. Heck, my local paper's photogs were issued gripped D300's not D3's and they are impatiently waiting for D400's, too!

Nikon created this DX semi-pro D3/D4 niche so, lets hope they stay with it! I hope they aren't saying you need to buy a 6000.00 D4 if you want the above camera characteristics!

If Nikon comes out with a D400 and a new AF-S 80-400 lens they will fly off the shelves! The most common body/lens combo I see on wildlife outings is Canon 7D and 100-400 lens. I swear they are everywhere. And, it is a great combo as many pros make impressive livings with that set up with a small investment of only 3000.00 or so!
