I wouldn't expect a D5 until 2016 - pro models are usually on a 4 year cycle.

There maybe an S-model after 2 years - i.e. 2014 but the sensor upgrade of the D3s was unexpected - S-models are usually very small improvements and usually not in sensor tech.

So, IF there is going to be a D4s - it should be in 2014 - but don't expect a big sensor upgrade.

Nikon also seems to have missed the D4x cycle - so doubtful if the next pro release will be a D4s instead of a high MP full size pro body - D4x...

But like I said before, my money is on getting new glass.

Moving to F2.8 from F4 glass is like shooting 1600 instead of 3200 - plus those exotic primes give you that 3-D look no body upgrade will give you.
