Nikon Eurpoe says "flagship DX not yet announced... according to Nikon Japan"

D7100 is a major upgrade from the D7000, but it still fell short of a pro DX model.

Strictly, the Nikon’s dx Flagship, if you have to have this term, is d300s guys, sitting still right there. Nikon US wasn’t exactly precise in that respect, thinking a bit ahead perhaps.

I agree. I think Nikon US used the term "flagship" to mean "latest".

+1 on that. That resolves the seeming contradiction between this and descriptions of it as 'middle class DX', which it seems to be, based on the build. Since only the D4 in the current lineup is suitable for sports, I'd say there's plenty of room for a D400. Long FX lenses are also out of most people's reach, so building on the D7100's crop feature makes sense.
