One little detail that will force any action photographer to by a D400 (if it's in the pipeline) or a D4 (which many can't afford) or change to Canon or whatever else is available out there. Your move, Nikon. Please come up with the D400 before my D300 says goodnight, will you?

That's a weird situation:

The Nikon D300 is ancient technology, the Canon 7D almost as old and Pentax isn't famous for its AF accuracy (and not available in many countries). Should I hope for an Olympus E-7?

7D2 is coming, there will be more choices. Meanwhile either a D300 or a D7100 will fill the gap.

where is 7d2 ?

1. Canon took 4 generation of x0D bodies to realize they were loosing pros to the Nikon Dx00 line.

2. Finally, they launched a true competitor in the 7D.

3. 7D has been a huge success still among the top seller while D300s is selling in very very low numbers (check Amazon, 7D is at #15, D300 at 55, D300s is below ...; even D90, 3 generations ago, sells more than D300s, a current model but actually almost 6yo model).

4. 60D has not hurt 7D, it also sells well.

5. The lowest priced FFs (but still higher in price) are not in the same body league, in any sense (D600 is now lower than the D7100 body-wise).

6. Why stop the line? Only at Nikon's top level this may have looked like a good path, I bet Canon won't make the mistake of leaving that public orphan again.

7. Hope Nikon listen.
