Nikon is going to have to pull out all the stops on a "D400" to clearly differentiate it from the D7k which looks like a real winner.

Pull out all the stops? To me, the only real benefits of the D7000 are its higher megapixel sensor and its newer fancy low-noise high-ISO processing.

I sure hope the D400 has a faster AF acquisition time. That's my only real gripe about the D300.

I have a feeling that Nikon's AF-S engines are not as fast as Canon's USM. Even D3 is not as fast as may be 7D (initial acquisition). But in tracking of course D3 is much better. Anyhow I too wish if the initial acquisition is faster

Computers are fast these days. AF should be blazing fast by now. I used to have a D1x. That thing was fast!

I also hope it has a real 30 fps 1080 movie mode recorded in AVCHD.

Oh, and I really wish it will be quieter. The D300 is so freaking loud!
