I actually do think this is going to be a game changer much like the D300.  It's just taken too long to replace. I don't think incremental improvements are on the way.  Wow type stuff is coming...

Game changer I say!

Yes. Because d7100 already better body than d300s was. It's better in all and every aspect (except obsolete flash sync and 10-pin). It have more direct controls than D300s and perfect for all-round and travel. I've lust for d400 until d7100 arrival and can say it isn't downgrade in any aspect. So D400 won't be just 24MP DX in D800 body (Already D800 is 15 MP D400).

But what't interesting is HOW d400 can change game?

Today engineering can make just anything, but imagination still stays behind.

I used to do quite a bit of sports... so maybe even though now I don't need what I think a D400 will have and just settle for a D7100... I think if I buy a D7100 I'm going to end up kicking myself... and that hurts!
