NikonRumors.com is now online. It may take several hours until the server changes propagation is complete and all ISP have updated their routers. If you cannot access NikonRumors.com directly, try http://126.96.36.199 (make sure you also clear your browser's cache). I am not going to discuss again the details of why NR went down, I did that already on Twitter and Facebook.
NikonRumors now has a new dedicated server and a new host (NationalNet). There could be some interruptions in the next few days, until I fine-tune the site.
Coming up next: Nikon files patents for a 80-400mm f/3.5-5.6 lens and a back illuminated sensor.
