A lot has been said here. Many things make sense. I would like to see that D400 finally arrive just like one next to me. But I just don't see it coming.

It is Thom Hogan that keeps the hype alive, and I have a firm opinion on why it is the case. You see, just like DX line makes the majority of Nikon DSLR sales and consequently the profits in the same range, so does Thom Hogan with his books. His books are one of the major sources of hos income, and if you just briefly examine his books portfolio, soon you'll discover that he's writing ONLY DX books, not FX. Among those, my guess is that the best sellers were enthusiast and pro level camera books (D70/80/90/7000/200/300/D2). It is quite logical that users of these cameras would be most interested in additional reading, much more than entry level photographer would be. Having said that, I leave you to imagine for yourself how significant it would be for Thom Hogan if Nikon was to abort a line that brings a fair amount of his book income. Maybe I'm wrong, but I just think it's Thom's wishful thinking on the subject that plays the major role here.

Just my 2 cents..

After careful reconsideration of what i wrote here, i would suggest now that it's all crap and beg you to ignore it completely (as many of you do already). Sometimes I'm just so full of s..t that I'm really ashamed of myself!
