(24-08-11) DISAPPOINTED!. Heck, even the mirror-less fell through; we just got a bunch of Coolpix, which - as we all know - are not particularly noticeable in comparison with the rest of the P&S crowd, never have been.
(18-08-11) Seems like we're getting a mirror-less and a bunch of Coolpix. Who cares?
(02-08-2011): Nikon Rumors now says we will probably get a new version of the D3S (D4) plus the nextgen D700 (D800?).
Still no rumors on specs, though, which makes me think that this might all be just hype...
According to Nikon Rumors - generally well informed - Nikon has set a date for mayor press events in various countries: August 24, 2011.
This may very well be Nikon's most anticipated launch date in years, because we might finally get the nextgen Professional and Prosumer cameras many people feel they have been waiting for too long.
Two years have passed since the last update of the Nikon flagship line, which is normal given most manufacturer's historical upgrade cycles.
That is, if you count the D3S as an upgrade, which some of us apparently don't. To these people the last “serious” update was the 24 Mp. D3X in December 2008.
Moreover, Nikon's Prosumer segment is not only behind on its own “habitual” release schedules, but also way behind on those of the competition.
