Hi Renato,

Im not sure about EVIL, I did not hear anything about an EVIL camera, I heard about the testings of a hybrid camera. A compact electronic camera which still using an optical viewfinder in a new format. 14MP sensor, build in VR, HD movie functionality, and which is able to use Nikkor F-mount lenses. Also coming with a new type of compact external flash

Based on the rumours I heard I do not think the new type of camera will have an electronic viewfinder. I tried to find out if Nikon is producing such kind of camera already. At least they do not do that yet at the Sendai plant.

Hi Michel, how sure are you about the EVIL stuff? The D7000 (D90+) has had a lot of talk already aorund the net.

I heard a lot, just did not see so much of a D700 replacement.

The D700 is already since end of last year as 'limited available' in a stock order system of a large Japanese wholesale and retail company. And so is the D90.

I don't expect it to see at Photokina, rumors in Japan suggest that the new D90 replacement or new format hybrid camera will be there.
Lets wait and see!

Before I spend $2,400, has anyone heard anything?
