Roger, I would be interested in kowing why you believe the upgrade would be called a D7100. We are already on the D3200, and the D5200. I believe that it would be bad marketing to come out with a D7100.
I think the question is whether there will be a D400 & a D7200. I suspect there is a battle within Nikon as to whether they should come out with both or whether there will be a merge between the two. I am assuming that they already know which way they are going, and are in the execution phase. I think they are delaying the announcement to keep from cutting into the D600 & to some extent the D800, depending on the features like frame rate.
I am having a difficult time believing there will be a grip built in on a DX camera.
