I agree. I'd be amazed if a D400 is coming when you consider the extra focus points, dual cards etc of the 7100.

This is a replacement for both - there just isn't enough room for a D300 replacement.

John, you and others could very well be right, but "there just isn't room" based upon what?


1)  There is a $900 dollar gap between the D600 & the D7100.  I call that room.

2)  The D7100 has a very small buffer.  I think there is room for a camera with a large buffer.

3)  The D7100's body is not in the same vein as the D300 or D700 in build quality.

4)  User control.  The 7100 doesn't have some of the functionality via buttons that a D400 would have.

5)  6 FPS leaves something to be desired for sports or birding.

None of this means that a D400 will ever come, but I'd say there is ample room for a D400 camera, especially if the Canon 7D MkII is introduced.
