Rumors are out on dpreview that Popular Science leaked a link page early for the new Nikon D300: DX format, 8fps, with 12.2MP CMOS &
Nikon D3x: FF format, with 12MP as well with a Nikon CMOS good to 12500ISO H2.

Just a rumor lets see if it's true, if so our beloved 40D could really be old news if the D300 trumps our old 1D mk2N. Hey 8fps if it's below $2000 is a bargain don't you think.

The only problem is, if it is true it will still be eons before Nikon has any inventory instock to sell if it even hits the store shelves by 1st qtr next year!!!

How usable could ISO12500 on a Nikon possibly be? And shouldn't it be ISO12800?

1600x2=3200
3200x2=6400
6400x2=12800

Yeah, another announcement designed to keep the Ni*on faithful from switching at Christmas - the camera will be in stock sometime by the end of 2008! :lol: (Can you say D70? I knew you could)

Have Fun,

It'll be a 1D III killer when the 1D IV is out.

You're so right, I can't do math, duh...

Well the deal is this is a CMOS (if you have seen the dpreview Sony news) So it might be as sharp as anything from the 20/30D at least we might assume. The current D200 is a CCD rather then a CMOS chip. This could be big.
