Agree that the D400 should have come years ago with the excellent D7000 16mp sensor but pro AF and 8fps+ - would sell like hot cakes even though it may have bodge up the D7000 sales it would mean more sales of other items, e.g., lens.

Indeed, although I suspect a lot of people have kept their D300(s) instead of buying a D7000.

This is one area Nikon and Canon needs to update 2013; 300 F4, 80/100-400

And Canon's 400/5.6. Since Canon has been aimed at the pro market recently, I think (hope) maybe this year might be the year for some extra effort for the enthusiast market. A 7DmkII with AF at f/8 a new 400/5.6L IS, would be an absolute dream since the new 500/4L II is way over my budget but I still prefer to buy new.

The 400f5.6L is my most used lens and although very sharp, it would be nice to see an optical tweek with 4-stop IS and weather sealed mount.  I doubt Canon would do this but I'm curious where they'd have to price a 500f5.6L.  A new 7D mk2 with f8 AF would be icing on the cake.
