Another Nikon D400 book is available for pre-order

The saga of unreleased Nikon D400 books continues - this time it's Magic Lantern who promises a new D400 guide on September 4th, 2012. The book is currently available for pre-order on Amazon US, Amazon Germany and Amazon UK:

The timing of the book release (September 4th, 2012) is interesting because Nikon is known for making major announcements in August (D90, D7000, D3, D300). In addition, the biggest photo show Photokina starts on September 18th.

After the D3200, Nikon is expected to release two more DSLR cameras in 2012. It will not make sense to upgrade the D7000 and the D300s at the same time, so my guess will be for a new D5200 and a D400. This will open the path for current D7000 owners to upgrade to the D400 (just a speculation, I have no reliable info on the D400 at that point).

Update: the publisher of the book issues a statement that this listing was a mistake:

"Due to an internal systems error, the Magic Lantern Genie Guides book with ISBN 978-1454707820 was mistakenly listed with a fictitious model name: the D400. This was a dummy title that never should have fed out to booksellers, and neither Simon Stafford nor Sterling Publishing Co., Inc. have any knowledge of such a camera model."

    I heard back from Simon Stafford this morning. There is no D400 book currently planned for September 2012. See the announcement below:

    Thank you for your support for my books in the Magic Lantern Guide series. Unfortunately the posting on Amazon concerning a book on the “Nikon D400″ is erroneous. Sterling Publishing has issued the statement below.

    Kind regards,

    Simon

    To Whom It May Concern:

    Due to an internal systems error, the Magic Lantern Genie Guides book with ISBN 978-1454707820 was mistakenly listed with a fictitious model name: the D400. This was a dummy title that never should have fed out to booksellers, and neither Simon Stafford nor Sterling Publishing Co., Inc. have any knowledge of such a camera model.

    Apologies for any confusion,

      Remember 2009?

      Same story of “No it was just a mistake blah blah fishpaste…”

      Then BAM – the D300s got launched. Exact same ISBN number on the book as was originally quoted, only thing that was wrong was the actual model number of the camera – everybody was expecting it to be called a D400 back then

        I had forgotten that. You’ve given me hope. Hopefully when they do release the D400 they don’t call it the D7100!

          I’m convinced we’ll see a proper replacement for the D300s – pro body with all the controls on it, fast frame rate, the works.

          Nikon is not going to just surrender this market to Canon’s 7D II or whatever they’ll call it – it’s too much money to ignore…

          The D7000 or D7x000 will never be a D300s replacement, no matter how they carry on about it. There are just too many buttons missing for it to be so.

          I just can’t see them not bringing a D400 out. Maybe they’ll call it a D9000 or whatever, but it just has to come. If they don’t I might just send a strongly worded letter to Nikon LOLOLOL

    Due to the perfect performance of D800e, I think nikon maybe would publish d400/e, if the d400 is the flagship DX @ 24mp. the d400e will be the good choice for the bird shooter fans.

    But this Nikon D400 will be a DX format?

    I hope the D400 comes about, quality body, decent FPS and Expeed 3 processor.

    The real question is whether Nikon has realigned its DX range to the Dxx00 range, ie D3x00 (low end), D5x00 (mid range) and D7x00 ( high end DX)

    Although for me, the D7000 just doesn’t offer enough for me to trade in my D80.
    The D800 and D4 are definately not aimed towards me.

    Hopefully it won’t be a long wait for a new camera.
