OK, I found the link, it was posted along with an image of what is supposed to be the top plate... that top plate belongs to no other camera so it is an obvious conclusion that it belongs to D600, clearly it's the top plate of an FX camera and it shows a 51point AF system, it seems to me that they where mislead because of the D7K solutions applied on the new body but otoh I was thinking all the time that it's impossible to adapt a DX focusing system to an FX and that Nikon wouldn't develop a new AF system since they already have a new one, it wouldn't save costs, would it?


If you look in the comments section you'll read it was identified as the D800. And the last rumor is that the camera will have 39 focus points. It will be an FX version of the D7000 focus system. If you can adapt the 3500 focus system for DX (D300 and D3 family), then you can also go the other way
