This rumor has been going on for a long time now. Nikon is really not making any friends out here. I have a D300 and a D90 back-up. I don't like the D600 and the D800 has to many pixels. I have looking at D700's, but that's not moving forward. I wish they would say they are making it or they are not and get it over so we can move on.
I OFTEN WONDER WHAT KIND OF A MARKETING TEAM NIKON HAS. Oh, the D7100 just doesn't cut it as a top of the line DX body. (low buffer)
