I quite agree. I've had money laying in the bank account for several years, just waiting on a "true" d300 replacement, such as you describe.

Maybe the frustrating and seemingly interminable wait is finally over. Time will tell.

Same here! Money is waiting for the camera.

I am quietly hopeful about this, but after all these years no euforia.

D9300?

D9300 APS-C 24MP 6fps without grip, D800 body, D4 AF = USD 1,600

D900 FX 16MP 6fps without grip, D800 body, D4 AF = USD 2,400.

What's with the 6fps? Did Nikon suddenly forget how to do 8fps or suddently decide that nobody other than D4s users get more than 6fps? The Fujitsu Milbeaut core in the Expeed 4 is supposed to be able to do 12fps at 24MP.

Probably you will get 8 or 9 fps WITH grip, so that will be another USD 300 or so for Nikon.

Doubt you will get 12 fps to compete so close with D4.

Surely 6 fps w/o and 8fps w grip is fair for a budget speed camera.

Especially as these two (9 series FF /DX) will likely pair capability for video, likely the spearhead video DSLR's for Nikon?

But that will likely use the liveview (the video).

Just thinking about what makes sense at a 'new' DSLR provision.

Cheers.

I believe NR already had d9xxx mentioned in one of Japanese press articles they showed a year ago or something. This leads me to believe this might be according to some long-term roadmap and most likely replacement of d300s. I had this "consumer fever" this year to replace d5100 with d7100, but I did come to my senses and bought 85 f/1.8 (before rebates) and 105 f/2.8 (during rebates). They cover what I need in DX world (and one day FX eventually).  With d9300 potentially now coming, I 'm interested in this camera as something I would buy next year and I hope by then Nikon would also release nice wide prime lens.

Hi there

The main point I believe is that this should be the best DX design possible and the most solid and that can only be achieved if it is a 100% Pro model. I don't bother with FX like most advanced users, too big, not enough options and exposures from this size sensor still suggest studio applications in the main. So far though designs have been dictated by what levels of bloodymindedness are trendy for the times, lack of true competition is to blame for that. I can wait I am still hugely enjoying my D300 and D100, mainly in the knowledge that FX still can't deliver, so no matter how dated they are, it doesn't really matter. So to re-cap, a fully working Pro DX has shown itself to be the best ultra mobile picture taking device out on the road.

However, the 9xxx designation suggest otherwise, but we'll see.

This would be a nice comeback for Nikon after the D600 fiasco, making amends with its loyal base and rekindling relationships... very unlike the Nikon we know but then again desperate times call for desperate measures as the saying goes. I think we would all welcome the D300 replacement with open arms and forgive Nikon pretty quickly for any previous misdeeds! lol

So at last?

Sony has come with a new AF system starting with the a6000, gaining more and more influence in the aps-c format, and must be said that deservedly so.

Very fast continuous shooting, used by myself, really is no problem for these cameras. And the a77 ll is coming. super telephoto lenses won't be Nikon/Canon's domain forever as well.

what you say.. though I will personally put it down to disasters that hit Japan.

It’s an important segment. And this looks like a serious piece of information.

Hopefully they will have the fast mirror from the new D4s

And more importantly they will bring some modern pro grade DX glass.

Kris, aren't you also waiting on the Tamron 150-600?  I'm waiting on that too and and have been holding off on upgrading my D300s just for something a bit closer in specs, as I'd expect a D9300 to be.  I was actually figuring on a D7200 upgrade late this year, but this should be everything I was looking for.

The question is, which of our new toys will we see first, and when? I don't think I'd want to bet on either any time soon, although I'm still hoping maybe I'll see the Tamron this year!

D9300 would mean a similar refresh cycle as the rest of the consumer line, which speaks against a high-end solution.
But one can hope. D800S + D9300 would be a very nice combination.

Nikon seem to have stabilized with odd numbers for their DX lineup, D3x00, D5x00, D7x00, thus D9x00 would be above the D7x00 one, if it materializes. Unless it is the replacement of the D700, which I doubt very much, it'd be D710 if that happens. I see Nikon staying with two smaller body lines in FX, D6x0 and D8x0, and the Dn large body line. There are 6 dslr lines now, 7 if a D9x00 comes, quite a lot actually.

I would have thought for sure someone would have had a photoshopped image by now to go along with all the specs floating around for a camera for which all we have is a model number, and that might not even be real.

I don't think its an exact D300s replacement, or Nikon would have kept the DXXX designation. The fact that its four digit tells me its consumer oriented. It could be advanced consumer like the D7100, but not semi-pro like the DXXX. I'm wondering it this isn't the tech from the V series migrating up. EV, AF tech from the V line, etc.

Sounds great. Where's the Official Announcement? Nikon had no trouble announcing the development of the D4s. A real  Nikon Teaser for the D9300 would be nice. I'm not saying we need to know everything now. Just give us a confirmation of the name D9300 and a date.

I do not get why a D200-D300 cameras are DX but D600-D700 are FX.

Just as the D1/D2 line became FX with the D3, the D100/D200/D300 line appears to have become FX with the D700.  We now have the FX D800, D700 and D600, leaving room for an FX D900, D500 and D400 to be added to the lineup.

The current naming of convention for DX models, i.e., D3x00, D5x00 and D7x00, leaves room for a possible D1x00 & D9x00.  I suspect the D9x00 will better the D300 in all aspects, except perhaps body construction.

I suppose 200-300 are DX pro and 600-700-800 are FX enthusiast or something like that. It must be confusing for some people besides me. I think all DX cameras should have been XX00 (4#s) and FX X00 (3#s). I could agree with a pro DX line starting at 8000 or 9000 series. I guess since D70-80-90 are gone the DXX #s are gone so can't be used for DX pro. Or maybe they should put DX or FX before model #.

Re: D9300 - I think its real, but not what you expect
In reply to sandy b, 3 months ago

The only reason to keep the buffer small on the D7100 is to leave room for a higher spec camera like D9300. (... or some might say, they left a few specs out, for reason to introduce a D7200/D7300 later on, as in not want to give too much away for next years model.)

Just like the Canon 70D leaves room for a 7Dmark2 with better specs (like maybe dual card slots, faster, more rugged). Or why tease us with a 7D2 possibility in Canon rumors?

My guess is that these APSC sensor cameras will compete head to head. 7D2 vs. D9300.
Better specs for D9300, most likely. Better build quality than D7100, who knows? Maybe.

One CF slot and SD slot? Hopefully, as better for faster Full HD video at 60P (hopefully updated from 30P in full HD), and using pro extreme Sandisk CF cards. I prefer CF.

On sensor PDAF for better continuous AF in video live mode? hopefully. Or is this too much to ask?

D9300 numbering in line with the new D3300 and D5300, so says Nikon Rumors in the April 2 speculation, and they claim a reliable source for a new DX camera.

If this was speculated on for April 1, why could say, but it was not. My bet is on a new DX camera, though. Wishful thinking on my part.

One way or another we will find out, when they finally announce a new camera. But, when?

When it is ready!:-)

Why? It is clearly above the D7100. Dxxxx now seems to be for DX cameras and Dxxx for FX. I don't think the model numbers tell you much more than that.

D600/D610 are about the same build as the D7100 - yet the D800 (same number of digits) has a different type of body.
