    What is next in the Nikon body line up?

    Today we have seen a new camera announced but it isn't exactly what the masses seem to want.

    Will there ever be a D400?

    Will there ever be a replacement for the D700?

    Will any of the people who cast a vote and scream loudly for either actually buy one?

    Are we all actually hooked on gear that might never satisfy our needs?

    Thom Hogan wrote an interesting piece on why the D700 won't get a replacement: http://www.dslrbodies.com/newsviews/...00-replac.html

    I think the D400 is just a business decision for Nikon - they're probably not going to stand to make as much money as they could from continuing to upgrade the D3xxx/D5xxx lines.

    Mongo just enjoyed reading your questions Andrew - probably more than any answers he is likely to see.
    In any event, Mongo is in the "who cares what Nikon do or don't do next" frame of mind at present. He thinks they should get their existing, current stuff and customer service right before they try to impress !!

    A 54Mp FX, probably the D900E.

    I can see the need for a 24Mp D4 or as Rick says a D5/D5x with 24Mp.

    However, the 36Mp D800E is what I call the perfect camera for my needs.

    I had to vote gravy due to the following inconsistencies with my line of thought(s) :


    * Nikon don't get it, I need 24mp in FX with 10fps and if they don't release one I will buy Sony:
    (I'd have postulated the ultimate notion of 94Mp in MF, Sony A7 sized body, 13fps, 2000 point AF covering entire sensor, clean ISO204K, and sub $1K price range .. or I'll buy a Sony )

    * I would look at a reasonably priced FX body with a D4 sensor and all the controls that the D700 has:
    (reasonably priced and Nikon are two mutually exclusive terms of reference and so the above sentence does not compute! )

    * No, I want a D300 and D700 replacement all rolled into one or I will buy a Pentax:
    (Pentax-Schmentax! ... I'd probably buy a LoFi ... Lomo )

    * Doesn't the DF cover both the options? Shame about having to use knobs and dials though:
    (Df is $2K over priced .. I'd have preferred that the dials were a mechanism that alternated between two different sensors(D800 and D4) AND between sensors and a roll of film. Df is definitely not what I asked for )

    * My D300 / D700 aint broke yet so I see no reason to upgrade:
    (my D300 is broke, and I don't have a D700 .. and I always see a reason to upgrade! ... ps. my D300 is only broke in that it's old tech and can't do ISO204K ... basically, it was broke from day one )

    * Yes, the D7100 fulfils all my needs in a DX body except for ( insert 54 answers here):
    (I had 55 reasons and couldn't decide which to leave out to satisfy the stipulated conditions )

    * What is a D700???
    (this one I knew, so my answer could have been considered insider knowledge.
    BTW: a camera design type in the days prior to Df day ... the likes of which we will never see again .... post Df! )

    * Who cares so long as they release a 10-600 super zoom to save me from having to shift my lazy ****:
    (I look forward to the day of the 1-1200mm f/1.0 lens .. simply for the pleasure of shifting my lazy **** as an anachronistic gesture to the standard practice of using the wrong lens and cropping later in PP )

    * My Iphone takes better pics anyway.
    (what's an iPhoney? )

    * Gravy:
    (Yippeee! I'm having it again with my steak tonight anyhow, and so it seemed to be make the most sense to my current situation and remain above 99.9% in correctness and factuality )

    Received a email from Nikon Life outlining new models. A d4s is hinted.

    I'm happy with my D600.

    I have serious doubts that I'll ever be as good as it is.

    I cant see how Nikon can out do the previous models. D7000 D600 are more than enough for any photographer could ever need or want in a camera. New cameras are becoming small incremental upgrades rather than new ideas. They should focus there attention on current models and better product support....

    Pretty uninspiring news from Nikon. D4s is the camera I will want but can't afford. D3300 is the camera I can afford but don't want.
    The new sigma 50/1.4 Art series announcement has me much more interested.

    So you are discussing existing gear. This poll and thread is about what we want next..what has not been released yet. What do you want to see?

    LOL, I would look at a reasonably priced FX body with a D4 sensor and all the controls that the D700 has. Who wouldn't!!

    I'd actually like to see Nikon answer the Sony A7 / A7R salvo with their own version. A D800E in a body the size of the Sony's would be quite amazing along with some appropriately size lenses

    So I really don't want much!

    Oh - and inbuilt wireless for goodness sake! Surely that can't be that hard?!?

    built in wireless would be a great feature, BUT only if there was a hardware button to activate/deactivate it!

    Going through menus to switch it on/off would be annoying and most times the user would forget to turn it off ... battery life would suffer as a consequence.

    but I agree wireless would be good for many situations but my main use of such feature would be for camera control, more so that image transfers/sharing.


    Not sure on the usefulness of a A7 sized camera from Nikon .. to make full advantage of such a system would require a new lens lineup in reality, otherwise an F-mount version would serve no advantage in any way.
    It wouldn't be as small(requiring the backfoucus flange distance) and even tho the body would be smaller, the lens lineup would overwhelm it in almost any instance of Nikon lens usage.

    Apart from having autofocusing lenses, Nikon wouldn't really gain anything in terms of market share from such a device.

    Or at least being able to reassign a button to switch he wireless off would be good. From a lens perspective I think continuing the f mount is ok as long as it was supported with more smaller type zooms and primes ala the new 18-55mm. Most of the existing teles up to 105mm would probable balance ok and zooms like the 70-300 would be no drama, probably a 70-200 f4 the limit size wise. I think there is a market advantage here, particularly if they could price it in the DX range as the lens depth in Nikons fx range is pretty solid particularly adding in Tamron / Sigma etc.
