not expecting much from D7200
In reply to JimPearce, 6 months ago

We agree on the two biggest ones:

1. Will there be a D300s successor? Yes, but unfortunately it will be a D7200.

2. Will there be a D700 successor No.

Based on the recent lower model upgrades between 5200->5300 then 3200->3300, I am not expecting a major upgrade between 7100->7200, except for buffer, and maybe 7fps (w/4k vid) to compete with canon. Good thing is most x100 to x200 saw a nice jump in capabilities and mp.
If I'm right, then there is room for D400, if I'm wrong then I hope D7200 is a killer camera. Interestingly the order can be D400 (w/o 4k vid) followed by D7200, just like highly capable D800 followed by D600. But NR has been awfully quiet on D400.

As far as Thom is concerned, forum members here have more or less the same or better information on what they want/need/expect so I wouldn't count on what he says. It could very much be that he is reading the information here, then summarizing in his 'blogs'

I usually do not like ifs in my posts (n code), but decided to take the liberty this time.

Only time will tell what will be handed to us when it comes to pro-dx
