Thank you, Richard for posting the very latest D400 news.

There are many new features and tidbits mentioned here to get excited about

EXPEED 4 processor capable of large buffer size with 24MB files
New AF system (400 and D4s)
D7100 sensor with no AA filter
Release tied to Canon 7D update expected Sep 13 to Q1, 2014

Also pro-body build, AF-ON button, 10 pin connector

One thing that I don’t get - what am I missing?

Nasim highlights the needs for ‘fast action photography’ enabled by the new processor, large buffer, presumably to get to a frame rate on the order of (from his previous D400 specs) 8 FPS.

He also closes with

“…I am sure many wildlife and sports shooters will be excited to hear this news.”

I love to shoot wildlife, but seldom use the CH (or CL) burst mode capability. I can see the potential for using it in select situations where, perhaps I can anticipate bird takeoff or landing, or crock closing on wildebeest. For BIF straight and level, the shot is good or I try again – a burst may give me – my thinking – more poorly focused shots faster? I don’t use it for straight and level flight or no change in status – perhaps in the transition state (but do I need 8-9 fps?).

I think of ‘fast action photography’ as needed for you sports shooters, soccer action, horse crossing the finish line in good lighting – basketball at the rim, swimmer touching the pool edge in poor lighting. So I see sports, much more than wildlife, as the realm of ‘fast action photography’. Consequently, I tend to place more value on features such as a new AF system paired with a sensor with no AA filter and, this is big as has been mentioned, AF-ON button, than a larger buffer. Am I missing something?
