Yeah - I'm with Marty on this one. I am also waiting (and hoping) for a D400 announcement. The D7000 is missing too many features that I have grown used to with my previous F100 and current D200, and the D800 is just plain too expensive. A "DX D800," which is what I think the D400 will amount to (if it ever comes), will be perfect for me.

It's going to be at least that long and Photokina is only a rumour, but a reasonable one I feel. In any event it will tell us perhaps if a future for a pro DX dSLR still exists.
For me, even if it is announced in September I will have no intention on buying for 6 months after that. That's not a new decision of mine as I always would wait for users to report back after I had a bad copy of a D7000, but after the Auto Focus problems with the D800's, pre-ordering would be an absolute no no. I would be so upset and annoyed if I had been one of the many users who are having to send their models back to Nikon.
I know how you feel Richard. Don't get me wrong, I really enjoy my Nikon gear. I do however feel a little left behind owning a D300. I bought mine when if very first came out. I have been waiting for a replacement for 2 years while most of the other bodies have been upgraded some more then once. It's time to move on...
