Interesnting, new expeed on it. D7000's AF (well ...), wifi, etc. Likely D7100's sensor.

My wife has been using the D5100 as her back up camera to her D90.  She loves it but would like to have the WiFi for getting her event/party images up immediately.   Getting her one of these might mean that she would not 'steal' my new EM1 when it arrives (she has pretty much taken over the EM5) .     The only thing she would like is for the articulated LCD to be a touch screen like the EM5 .

I hope she's not shooting uncompressed RAW or that she takes a small number of pictures at each event. Even the fastest WIFI is slow compared to transfering wired. If she's only shooting at a rate of a picture a minute or so, it may be able to keep up.

The real advantage would be tethering in my opinion. Less wires to trip over. Less restricted range.

And yet all the comments are about the D400...says a lot
In reply to rhlpetrus, Sep 25, 2013

I think Nikon's next launch might be attended by a lynch mob if they don't at least announce a D400.

I wonder if they'll produce a D7100S instead (maybe just increase the size of the buffer, and add wifi).

I think security can handle those 3 guys from the "Pro DX" forum.

Sammy, she shoots RAW and jpeg. This is mainly kids parties and social events so she wants to get shots up on Facebook asap while the event is either still going on or while very fresh in people's minds, at least same day. Then she takes orders for prints.   She has not gotten too tethering yet but if she started making money....

From Sammy:

"I think Nikon's next launch might be attended by a lynch mob if they don't at least announce a D400."

You got that right!

"I wonder if they'll produce a D7100S instead (maybe just increase the size of the buffer, and add wifi)."

Without an increase in high iso that would be meaningless.  I am really liking the D7100 for the size and weight.  Even the build quality has not thrown me but I like the dedicated AF-on button, fps of the D300s w/grip and big battery, and of course the buffer needs to be bigger .  What I really want is cleaner higher iso than the D7100 gives.

Nikon seem to have decided that if you need speed and pro-level abilities you should get a D4. Big mistake, they have left a lot of poeple, D300s and D700 users, in a limbo. They will eventually pay for that IMO.

Let's storm the Castle...

I've been one of those actually patiently waiting for the D400, no screaming, hair pulling or bad words being uttered...but it does get frustrating that they aren't making an effort. Unless the 5300 is a test to see what kind of bugs needs to be worked out. It just doesn't make too much sense they'd upgrade that line so quickly otherwise.

I couldn't imagine any reason for them to put a faster processor in that series (5300) other then a test bed for it.
In my mind I can see the need for a faster processor for say an electronic view finder with almost zero lag. Yes I can see the Pro Dx line turning into a mirrorless camera, at least I hope in some ways. The NIKON 1 could have just been for getting thier feet wet.
So how would everyone feel if the D300s replacement was a Mirrorless F Mount camera, Pro Build and quality ?

I own multiple D90 and D70 bodies and a second hand D200.

I use a DSLR for it's versatility. It is the best solution for sports/action and the OVF is very versatile if I want to tinker with wide field astrophotography. Any camera that doesn't let me shoot fast action and extreme low light through a viewfinder (astro) leaves me out in the cold. That and the larger sensor of a DX DSLR make it attractive. Remove those things as you do with a mirrorless camera from today's crop and I won't be spending anywhere near as much on equipment. I can get most of the rest out of a bridge camera.

I actually thought that the D400 would be a hybrid camera (there are patents in that direction, with OVF/EVF system), with an Aptina sensor using the N1 AF system. That could produce easily 10fps or more in EVF mode. Maybe that will still materialize, could be a good surprise (but the price will be close to 2,000USD).

The D5200 and the D7100 already share the same Toshiba sensor and the D5200 also has the D7000's 39-point AF system, so two items are not exactly upgrades.

True, maybe they'll drop the AA like D7100?
