    I would really like to see and NEED a high speed connection for either USB3.0, Firewire 1600/3200 or the new Thunderbolt, preferably Thunderbolt. For my commercial and studio use.

    The lack of a high speed connection on the Pentax 645D was a big put off for myself and other professionals who need to use it tethered but cannot deal with the slow transfer rate of its USB 2.0, big mistake from Pentax. Lets hope Nikon can rectify this oversight.

    I'm rather hoping the D400 is to the D4 as the D300 was to the D3.

    Rob, talk is that it will be equipped with the Sony 24MP APS sensor, as to other stuff, haven't seen much in the way of rumors regarding the metering or AF systems. I'm sure more of that will leak out with a bit of time though. Will be interesting to see if the D400 goes more to the professional camera style body (somewhat larger), rather than a smaller body, the D7000 has given them a bit of room to move on this.

    I'll be watching closely as to what the D4 offers, though won't be getting one for some time, nor will anyone who doesn't have the NPS connections, the demand will outstrip the available supply for some time, similar to the D3 rollout. I sincerely doubt Nikon will have cleaned up its inventory issues such that it has a large enough stock for a professional camera demand. I would guess that it could take til mid 2012 for people to get their hands on one without the connections. And thats before one gets to the affordability issue (can you say Nikon pricing).

    The downer with this is that it shows the D700 replacement to be a long way off the table and probably a 2012 outcome...which will disappoint some people who have been waiting for it.

    these would be nice specs for sure. i dont know if it will have 24m pixels though. From what little I know about camera sensors, apparently they do not have the technology to clear a 24mp image off the sensor at a frame rate above/around 10, quickly enough, resulting in a film like double exposure. So seeing as the d4 is (if tradition continues) aimed at sports photographers amongst others it wouldn't add up. Unless of course they now have the tech, in which case this post is redundant effective immediately

    I missed my main gripe with the d3 is the lack of focus points outside the dx area

    The D400 is the overdue one in this announcement. We need a tough bullet-proof pro DX sized camera with usable 1600ISO and A3 at 300dpi with sports capability. In other words, fast at 17 megapixels. Second, we need a compact and affordable 24mp full framer to hang over the shoulder. It's shameful that Nikon hasn't had a D800 Canon 5D2 equivalent for at least a year already. Camera models come and go but the Nikon corporate character remains the same: use what we tell you to use, not what you want, you bastards.
