Update on product and dates.....

Actually met with the guy today. Got quite a lot more info, so perhaps his tight lips before was 'cause someone else was in the room when I was on the phone.

HERE'S WHAT I KNOW after my chat today:

The product is definitely a new professional DSLR

It is hardware final. Firmware is under testing and still in flux.

Production is scheduled to begin in July, in Japan, at a rate of 8-10,000 per month.

It has a revolutionary feature. I don't know what it is, nor do I know whether it is revolutionary 'across the board' or just for Nikon.

It WILL NOT be announced this month.

It will be announced and demonstrated internally at Nikon Japan around the 10th of July.

It will now be publicly announced around late July/early August.

It will still be available for purchase late August.

HERE'S WHAT I DON'T KNOW:

Model name

Specs

'The Feature'

Price
