Nikon will almost certainly release a very nice pair of cameras in the "D4" and "D400" later next year

What is wrong with the D3s/x?

Aside from the price of the D3x, nothing is really wrong with those cameras.

What is all this talk about a D4?

The pace of major updates for Nikon is every 4 years now, and late next year it will be 4 years since the D3 and D300 were announced.

I'm just wondering what it is that people want that would require Nikon to come out with a D4, at least any time soon.

In the digital age, a year is a long time.

Sensors have been very good now for some time, and for some photographers the durability and features of the camera are more important.

The reason I bought the D300 is because of its high ISO performance. I will only upgrade if there are improvements in sensor performance, mainly high ISO performance.

The D7000 appears to be an improvement in that regard, as well as simultaneously offering more resolution. What's not to like about that?
