Re: Why do we need 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.

The time gap between the D200 and the D300 was pretty short, so it would seem that they only introduce new models when there is a need.

And what other products have had a 4 year gap?

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

It would be like going from a Camry to a Corolla or a 5-series to a 3-series. Even if the specs are better on paper, it's a different class. It's like telling a D3 shooter to use a D700 or an Elan user to shoot with a Rebel.
