Funny, Thom now has the D400 back in his roadmap...
Jul 9, 2012

"The expectations are that this new generation we're in will look something like this:

FX: D600, D800, D4, D4x

DX: D3200, D5200, D7200, D400

We don't now if all those models will show up (the D400 and D4x are speculative), which makes trying to buy something during these generational changes all that much tougher. Nikon's been remarkably predictable on generational change, though, and the lineup I just presented covers Nikon's usual price curve from bottom to top, so it's a reasonable guess."

He has been all over the road on this one. The interesting thing is he is now saying that the D400 price point fits Nikon's parameters. My take is that the D600 will be cheap enough for the D400 to come in at a higher price, and he now believes that Nikon can add enough value (8 or 9 fps would be key) to the D400 justify the higher price. (But I haven't asked him.)
