The D7000 16mp sensor, but with faster frame rates (both still and video)
A new focus sensor, likely a derivative of the D4's
1080P/24/25/30, 720P/24/25/30/60
Hard core pro body (more gasketing, probably integrated grip)
Integrated GPS?
EN-EL15 battery?

I don't buy a higher pixels...

If it has an integrated grip or is any larger/heavier, I will stay with my D300s and maybe eventually downgrade to a D7k body or it's replacement in due time. It will take me around 8 years to reach 100k shots!

Maybe we will have clean ISO 6400 from a 24MP APS size sensor with 24 fps and a 500g fully weather sealed body by then - ROTFL!


Having read all of the predictions, I cannot see Nikon making a different body for the D800 (no integrated grip) and the D400 (with integrated grip), the D700 was based upon the D300 size, I think that format will continue.

I also disagree with some of his predictions for the camera brands, I see them being very US-centric (not surprising really). To quote my local pro dealer here in the UK - "Pentax were in the doldrums during the last few years, now they are back with excellent bodies and a decent range of lenses, now it seems it's Olympus's turn".

Yes and he's pro-nikon so he should be expected to think negatively about "other" brands. It's just his guesses. Some will be right and some will be wrong.
