Whatever

All these rumors and when announced, most people on this board still won't be happy about something.

What's the point?

Yes it will be a first 10MP camera for less than $300 what they will skip this time.And on more serius side I hope so so maybe there be more D2Hs and start selling for about $1200-1400 soon.Only cameras that can be exaiting are one that one can aforded so whats a differance what that d3 will be not much for many many fox out there.

Re: D3 on June 26th???

Could be.....i would think that if something is too arrive this year, it would have to be announced in the next 2-4 weeks.

The rumours are really flying, and nothing has been confirmed, no leaks, nothing!

I have been visiting dpreview for 2 years and this is the greatest specualtion i have ever seen, either we are all hyping each other up to an impending announcement or we're all going nikon NAS mad.

I would guess that if the pros aren't satisfied with an updated cam this year, Nikon can probably kiss a good chunk of the pro market goodbye.

If it isn't made in the Far East and sold in the US, I can't afford it.

Re: don't let the door...

There are really a lot of rumours out there at the moment about Nikon. Is this a good marketing game or is there really something big coming towards us?

Will there be a big innovation in digital photography, with a whole new Nikon line-up? Maybe the 15 lenses and 3 bodies rumour comes true and we get a D3, D300, D90 and a lot of lenses? Leaps and bounds better than anything Canon is offering?

But the most time, people want to see their wishes come true and belief in to good sounding rumours. The most time the updates are only one small step better than the old models, even if the marketing department tells you that it is a prodigy.

Everything is possible. Sure is, that this rumours drive a lot people crazy. We will know more in a couple weeks.

Most people will not be shelling out 5-6k for a new Nikon body and then another bank roll for lens that fits anyway.. lot of dreamers

It's my birthday :)

It looks like Nikon picked my birthday to announce their next pro camera, maybe I should get one I'm kidding, I could never afford it, but the idea is nice.

Everytime....

I get excited about a new Nikon they bring out a Coolpix! I think Nikon uses forums like these to generate buzz about new products, sadly they sometimes abuse that power. I hope that's not the case now.

BMW M3

Just like I won't shell out 60,000 dollars for a new BMW M3.

It would be nice to have, don't get me wrong. For now I just have to be happy with driving the BMW M3 in my video game.

That's what Nikon needs to do - develop a video game for photography.

My ideas rule.

Would the video game include back-focus?

why stop at the D3?...

A D3 is nice and all but for the better part of us Nikonians, some VR lenses (some updates too maybe) would be the real buzz.

I'm getting ready to buy a VR and I'm frustrated by the fact that the only 'wide to medium tele' zooms out there are the 24-120 and the 18-200.

So, Nikon, if you're listening, after you're done releasing that (by now) legendary D3, bring out a VERY sharp, distorsion-'free', ca-'free' Nikkor AF-S 18-135mm f/3.5-4.5 DX (circle at least as big as the one of the 18-200 VR) IF-ED VRII weather sealed and sell it for only $450-500US. :))

If that D3 FF comes out this July, us non-pros will have access (affordable) to FF around August...2017AD. Yay! So, D3? Bring it on!

We will see at least Dpreview.com will become interesting with some new products; recently it has been pretty quiet..
