Hi Lance,

I may say that both the D800 and D800E are not discontinued in Japanese camera stores. I have family in Japanese electronics business and there is absolutely no problem to order one from them.

As I said, "the D800 and D800E were being discontinued", not "have been discontinued". So, the inference is that they will be discontinued soon or when the new D800 is actually in the shops.

Well, the fact that he knew about the new D800 and that he was told that they were being discontinued by Nikon seems to me that it would be true. I mean, he has no reason to make it up.

Just spoke to my camera retailer and asked if I could go on their notification list for me to purchase the rumoured new D800 - whatever the number is. The sales guy told me that he was informed by Nikon Australia that the D800 and D800E were being discontinued and that there was an announcement in the next day or so of the new D800(?) and it will be available mid to late July, for Australia anyway.

I would assume that they would be announced on the same day all over the world and released on the same day all over the world.
