Hi Renato,

It's a bit odd at least. The D300 sold quite well is what I understood. The D300S not. I personally expected a new, more feature rich and higher specs D400 already seen the sales of the popular 7D

I think Nikon's idea about a follow up of the D300(S) are a bit changed since the D7000 is out, they expected higher sales of that one, at least in Japan it's not a very high seller

The D300S is removed from a large Japanese retailers ordering system. I haven't heard from them they expect a follow up for that one, while they expect new DX and FF camera's this end of September.

CX line will be extended as well. It sells incredible well in Japan, so I would be surprised if we will not see a V2/J2 soon to appear.

Hi Antony,

September there will be new camera's.

I also really wonder if there will be a D400, nothing from Japanese retail about that one.

THis D400 saga is very weird IMO. Nikon has lost market in the upper APS-C level to Canon for a couple of years already. The people invested in good DX lenses that don't need FF are kind of clueless, if Canon comes with an updated 7D using the new AF from 5D3, Nikon could be in bigger trouble there. I bet it'll be here soon, including PDAF for LV.
