Since I got my D200, I’ve been quite happy and I don’t have any interest for D300 when it was announced. I’m interested with D3, especially for that clean ISO 6400, but the price is too much for me.
There have been quite a lot of rumors about new full frame DSLR from Nikon with smaller body but there was not much to believe. But now there is a new rumor about new Nikon DSLR with the same sensor as in D3 but in a smaller body called D700 and it’s around US $2000 cheaper than D3. The poster provide some pictures of the leaflet for D700. If it’s real, I’m really interested :D.
UPDATE 30.06.2008 12:00: The is a rumor that there will be an announcement from Nikon on th 1st of July 2008, and I just found out that Foto Dany, a photo store in Bern, Switzerland, has put an announcement that there will be a new Nikon demo on the 4th & 5th of July 2008. Let’s see if the D700 is there :D.
UPDATE 30.06.2008 18:50: It seems OFFICIAL! A poster in DPReview has a German magazine (ProfiFoto) scan showing the D700 and SB 900: Please click here.
I’ve mirror the files just incase you can’t see the scan:
Nikon D700 page 1
Nikon D700 page 2
UPDATE 01.07.2008 03:00: A France site has put the announcement of the Nikon D700 online. There are some official pictures can be seen. The technical specification in France language can be read here.
