No D400? It is possible now...
Apr 19, 2012

The D300s was introduced in 2009 and was over due for an upgrade. Nikon now introduces the 24mp D3200 which is to replace the D3100 which was launched in 2010. I, we, all thought that sensor was destined for the D400!!!

This makes me wonder if the D100-D300s line will be retired. Why?

The old D70 to D90 line is pretty much toast. The D100 to D300s line comes from that same era.

The new lines being introduced are, as you already know, The D#, D### full frames, and the D#### DX line.

It would make sense for Nikon to roll out the D3200 with the 24mp sensor, then follow up with the mid-range 5200, and finally with a 7100.

Take a look at the trend here in DPReview when you select the Nikon cameras and filter out the compacts. Notice the D3000 and D5000 series. From 2012 to 2009 in order:

D3200
D800e
D800
D4
V1
J1
D5100
D7000
D3100
D3s
D3000
D300s
D5000

D400 is over due, but will it ever appear is the real question?
