If you want it that soon..

..by now, we would know what kind of camera it would be. Besides, following your argument the southern half of our planet is half a year off the pace..so september would not be too bad.

Expect announcements for Photokina in Cologne, if it isn't just another hoax.

Correct.  I wasn't thinking of those south of the equator.  Would be interesting to know the number of nikon photographers by geographical location.  I'd expect nikon's marketing department to have that info.  Plus what locations get the new releases first.  It all still boils down to how soon they can release a new model because money is still the bottom line.

That data isn't particularly handy, but the closest you can easily come by is their revenue by region on their yearly fact sheet.  I pulled out the most recent data and made a quick chart.

I think it's hard to draw too many conclusions from this, especially since there's a huge amount of revenue "overseas" and in "other", but I think it's fair to say that their revenue is spread out globally far more than many companies.

Compare that spread to Canon:

Thank you that is informative.

Thom is quiet...

He dove right in on NR on the D800s rumour, although as I recall he didn't speak directly to the rumour. He hasn't shown up on this thread in NR. I'm not saying this means anything, but he pointed fairly strongly to a D9000 over the past few months.

I'll speak for KR.  This is the best DX camera Nikon has ever made.  Do you need it?  No, you can take great pictures with a 20 year old camera and lenses.  But if you want the best DX camera Nikon has ever made, please click on the links below to order and help support my site.

Thom hasn't put anything on his site in the last week.  Not sure his silence means anything yet.

"I’m going to take my own advice and work a bit harder on my own viewfinder hours goals for the rest of the year. Indeed, I’m going to go log some serious viewfinder hours for a couple of weeks, and with a number of the more talked about recent cameras. Thus, the bythom sites will be mostly quiet until April 15th, when I come back into the office and start spending more keyboard hours again ;~)."

looks like he took his own and others advice seriously for once.

Also, now that this thread is reaching its end, I can't wait for regurgitation of the same arguments and demands in 100s of newer threads/posts, instead of taking Thoms advice as well
