Based on the information I have received from multiple sources from around the world, I am now 90% certain that we will see the new Nikon D3x by the end of this month. I keep getting the end of November or December 1st as a potential release date. I still do not know what will happen on November 20th. The new model will be called Nikon D3x (not D4) and it will have more MP (as expected).
The above statement is purely based on emails/tips I have been receiving in the past few days. The frequency and quality of the reports has definitely picked up. Of course this could be all just wishful thinking and speculation based on previous information posted on this blog.
I am still evaluating the best way to represent such an increase Nikon rumors chatter. Maybe I will introduce a Nikon Rumors Advisory System (similar to Homeland Security Advisory System).
The current level of Nikon rumors chatter would be HIGH.
