Re: D9300 - I think its real, but not what you expect

I don't think its an exact D300s replacement, or Nikon would have kept the DXXX designation. The fact that its four digit tells me its consumer oriented. It could be advanced consumer like the D7100, but not semi-pro like the DXXX. I'm wondering it this isn't the tech from the V series migrating up. EV, AF tech from the V line, etc.

Why? It is clearly above the D7100. Dxxxx now seems to be for DX cameras and Dxxx for FX. I don't think the model numbers tell you much more than that.

D600/D610 are about the same build as the D7100 - yet the D800 (same number of digits) has a different type of body.
