Seems that the camera specs of the rumour isn’t very exciting. If that’s true, then Nikon is again proved to be product-oriented rather than market-oriented like Canon, who would typically launch new models regularly to keep the market interest. So the D300S and D700 might remain in the market for another year or so, which isn’t a bad thing, since the models are already very good (except the video recording which Canon wins hands down).
As I am testing Samsung NX10, I wonder if there is really any possibility that Nikon can build a mirrorless body and re-using existing lenses. Maybe that’s what keeping them busy for the year instead of enhancing their existing DSLR models.
