Predictions > The new nikon D800 (or D700x)

Shortly, the new nikon D800 should have the technical specs as follows:
FX format
4 fps (6 fps at DX mode)
24 MP CMOS as a reply tp Canon 5D Mark II.
Programmable U1 and U2 buttons as D7000 (not on dial)
A new LCD, 3" two fingered touch screen
51 AF Points
2.016 Segment RGB Metering as in D7000
1080p HD video (I hope there won't be any video)
ISO 50-12.800 (Hi 2.0 >51.200)
Two CF card slots
Possible release should be around December 2011
Expected price tag will be around 3.990US$.

PS: These are my instincts and predictions. My friends in japan did not whisper me anything :)

Wild rumor and speculation on something no one knows anything about just to drive up blog numbers. We call that bad journalism. Never mind, it's just a blog.

I have no income or expectations from this blog. As i wrote on the bottom of this post, 'it is my prediction' and i share it..

I believe it will be a 16 million for not fight the D3S, burst would be 6 to 9 per second, and release price above the same that D700 2 years ago.

But, considering the D700-D3, D700 was like a smaller brother of D3, with same pixel account, much slower and less professional. If we recall the same for D3s, you are right for pixel account. But i believe that the new D800/D700x will be brother of D3x, not D3s. I have a D700 already, and why would i bother buying a same MP camera? Canon is waiting there with Canon Mark II 5D with 21 MP, and there is no reply from Nikon for that range. I am SURE that the new D800/D700x will have at least 16-18 MP, 4-5 fps and less ISO than exsisting D700. And i am sure again that the price will be slightly more than D700 introduction price.. Thx for your comment.. I hope i will be right, because i need more pixels for my work and need to shut the mouths of my rival friends :)
