excitement about same sensor in same body? Why?

Hi hypercore,

not sure why anyone would be excited about a camera with essentially the same specs as the existing model?  At best they will have done as with the D4s, i.e. allowed the camera to go a bit higher on the ISO front, possibly with no improvement on the result.  The key components, i.e. sensor, AF engine, viewfinder, body, will be identical.

Unless of course your aim is just to generate traffic to that site, "dailycameranews" - because you post the link without even bothering to add a comment.

As always with Nikon, the intermediary model update, whether they add an "s" (as in D4s), or whether they add 10 (as in D810), is only meant to consume some media air time and give an excuse to advertise the old product once more.

The "s" or "10" models are best skipped.
