    Honey, I shrunk the D600 sensor!

  • Guest

    Looks just like the D600

  • frkm0005

    I see (possibly stereo) microphones in front of the hot shoe

    • Paul

      good catch

    • IMeasure

      There is a left and right microphone right under the shoe mount

    • Spy Black

      Buy an F2 if you want a pro body…

        I have FM and FM2

    • Fly Moon

      So for you, big means “pro”? Are you serious?

      • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1595357256 Dwi Kurniawan

        Yes. So????

        • Fly Moon

          I doubt you know what pro means?

            whatever

    • Nico in China

      100% viewfinder / 51 points AF / all controls more or less as accessible as on pro camera.. what’s missing for you apart a fake feeling of sturdiness due to some weight?
      I do have a D800 / D700 / D7000 and i might have some complain concerning the IQ of the D7000 but i really don’t understand people “needing” a camera “built like a tank”. Personally i prefer something built like a camera.

      • Fly Moon

        But you can’t make money if the camera is not heavy and big!!

        • Nico in China

          Well there is some truth in that actually, depending on your work.

          But as far as it’s only about shooting, I think it made a difference in the previous generations of Nikons, because you didn’t have easy access to the ISO (as far as i know), but with the new AF controls and the access to ISO via the rear wheel, I really don’t see the need for these semi-pro things (and i would be super happy with a D600 with 51AF points, 1/8000sec shutter and all and/or a D4 in normal body).

      • js200022

        Since you have both the D800 and the D700 I am sure you can tell the difference between a prosumer camera and a plasticky consumer camera like the D7000. If you use a camera to work every day you will need one that is built solid.

    • bschk

      just checked some of your photos. i don’t think a “pro” body will change how good your photos look.
      blajar pake kamera dulu pls

  • Craig

    At first I thought this was a fake based on the D600, but looking at it more closely that ISO button change combined with that frigging ‘I’ button makes it seem more legit to me now Slightly tougher looking than the D7000 but leaning far more in that direction than the D300. :(…….

  • erik

    It’s a D600

  • nd7

    Look at the back it has two info buttons?

    • enesunkie

      I was wondering abot the “i” button too. Maybe “I” can program it?

  • Paul

    So it’s keeping the smaller D7000 body. Ok… so where’s the D400 Nikon?

    • Gabriel

      Thom Hogan thinks D400 will come and Nikon has left enough space for one.

    • Gabriel

      Thom Hogan thinks D400 will come and Nikon has left enough space for one.

      • Fry

        you mean 2 extra fps, AF-ON and a magnesium frame ?

        Other than that, the D7100 is basically a D300s successor.

        • Cuculain

          Should be more like 4 extra frames. 1.st to be a real improvement on the D300s, secondly to be competible with the Canon D7 Mark II. (In case the predicted 10.2 frames are correct). And I like the dream of higher ISO-Perfomance and less Megapixel in the D300s successor, too. Would be perfect to do sports, wildlife and wild children photography ;-). And in that case it also would have a significantly different profile, as the D7100.

          Anyhow, since I will have an appropriate alternative by Canon soon (7D Mark II) I stopped worrying.

          Still it would be nice to get the D400, since I really enjoy the D700 and D300S Body and am rather a Nikon fan boy.

  • AB

    The “D7100″ is a fake label. Look closely.

    • nd7

      yeah agree. Also one button left side marked ‘i’ and on right side marked ‘info’ why would you need two info buttons? Also look at left side button marked ‘i’ it is a different font from rest This looks like a mock up

      • ArthurWellesley

        I agree this looks like a mock up. On the D7100 emblem The D7 is in the corner unlike the 7000 which is more on the body.

        • http://nikonrumors.com/ Nikon Rumors

          The images are real.

          • ArthurWellesley

            NR, You would know better than I would.

      • Up $#!t’s creek!

        its the “i” in i am coming… maybe some new feature coupled with the wireless connector?

        • grant torres

          “i” is for instagram. that would tell dem HTC One guys to back off!

    Almost want to sell my D800 for this. Nice light powerhouse. Great for macro and birding…

    • Spy Black

      Just buy it and have both.

      • Neil

        I wish! Don’t have unlimited funds, though…

          of course you don’t, if you switch cameras like that… one doesn’t have anything to do with another

  • http://nikonrumors.com/ Nikon Rumors

    Updated post with more leaked images from Japan. Those are real.

    • http://Flickr.com/inthemist InTheMist

      DPReview has a hands-on preview posted.

    • GlobalGuy

      Any thoughts on why an AF-ON button is being denied by Nikon these days??

      • Renard Richie

        not denied but reserved for pro bodies (in this case they are forcing people to fork to d800)

  • MaGoO

    Seems the same image with different perspectives, and number changed.

  • Captain Megaton

    Improved styling and ergonomics, a rougher, tighter look overall, cleaned up some button clutter around back. Looks good, but very much a D7100. i.e. its the same size and control set. No D400. I told you so.

    • KnightPhoto

      6fps leaves a door open for a D400.

  • prete

    It looks to have smaller rear thumbwheel which looks a bit too small. Cant understand why it needs two info buttons. To be honest i prefer the button layout/look of the d7000. The new rear styling looks cheap

  • matprat

    Looks like your average NIkon Camera to me.

  • Zelf

    Oh c’mon why the hell do you keep the preset modes on a high end body -_-

  • Carl

    Looks like cheap plastic build. Disappointing Nikon :-/

  • neuron_engine

    Maybe I can’t make it out, but does it also look like they’ve removed support for AI lens metering?

    • prete

      would not surprise me. Like all industries they are trying to kill off used sales of items forcing people to buy new, i.e video games, computers, macs etc. There will probably come a point where lenses get locked to users or something to stop you buying used. Hell even the new nikon batteries have built in life cycle timers like ink cartridges to stop you using them after they are ‘done’

      • neuron_engine

        A valid observation. I was hopeful because at the end of F-era, they had eliminated AI metering from pretty much every camera body, and then it got re-introduced with the D200 and others, including the D7000. A really pity if they’ve finally decided to kill it just to save some money. This just puts further pressure on DX users to keep DX alive only by following Nikon’s idea of what a DX user is ‘supposed’ to be.

        • neuron_engine

          Looking at the official release, I guess I’m wrong; it’d make little sense to offer memory for 9 different MF lenses if you didn’t also have the metering tab!

  • RamesesThe2nd

    If you buy D7100, you will regret not getting D600 for a little bit more. when I got my first DX camera (D90), the cheapest FX camera (D700) was twice the price and didn’t even make video. Get D600. FX is the new DX.

  • phototime

    Plus there’s no tiny holes for the internal mic by the D7100. Unless they took the video feature out this must be a fake. looks too much like an editted d600 to me.

    • jdjdj

      umm look near hot shoe… i guess thats what u meant

  • martin9982

    nice i guess its time to buy d7000

  • phototime

    Plus there’s no tiny holes for the internal mic under/above where it says D7100. Unless
    they took the video feature out this must be a fake. looks too much like
    an editted d600 to me.

    • prete

      Look closly at top of flash. Mic holes are on top of flash, has left mic and right mic

      • phototime

        …..well that’s different

  • Poony

    hmmm… with these images I wonder if the ergonomic will match the title of ‘flagship of DX’.
    Kind of wish for a chinkier body, AF-ON button and full magnesium body… Anyone?

  • BRNSMRF

    Other than a fresh paint job and 51 AF points, I don’t see any reason to upgrade

  • Jon McGuffin

    So one of the big questions here is… Looks like a very similar build to the D7000 and that shouldn’t surprise anybody with a D7100 model number but what about the sensor/guts and mechanics?

    – I see it has Expeed 3, but still only shooting 6fps. I realize it’s 24Mp now, but do you suppose that we’ll have a buffer that will at least allow us to shoot for 3-4 seconds before filling up? That’s a real limitation on my D7000.
    – Also, will the autofocus system be the unit brought down from the D700? That would be a step in the right direction as well.

    – I see better video quality specs, so this may very well be a legit “low cost” videocam.

    If it’s truly priced at $1299/$1399, I consider it a very fair deal. Much more than that and I think Nikon is out of bounds here.

  • drivel

    No AF-ON button. Pass. It would have been such a simple thing to include, but it costs around $2500 to get one on a Nikon.

  • http://www.facebook.com/rich.martinez.39 Rich Martinez

    One of the big selling points of the D200/300 series was the solid body with all the bells and whistles, it felt good in your hand, well built. The D600 feels cheap. I cant understand having such great image quality in these cheap bodies.

  • grant torres

    What is that portruding button on top of the mode dial for?

    • sam LeDogge

      it’s called a “camera nipple”

      • grant torres

        you press that thing and a jet of air swooshes down on the sensor expelling the dust! great!

  • WDSCRN

    anyone wondering about the RAW recording?? We’ll really know if it’s the D400 if its full uncompressed 14-bit RAW, if it is lossless then it truly is the D7000 replacement

  • niXerKG
  • RamesesThe2nd
  • Up $#!t’s creek!

    1.3 crop?? this is really gonna be hard math

    • KnightPhoto

      1.3 crop of 1.5 crop movie = 2.0 crop movie. So 50mm in this movie mode becomes = FX 100mm FOV.

  • DigitalSprings

    Nikon has announced D7100 on it’s facebook page

  • goobers
    • Yannick

      at 1200$ it seems to be a nice deal. Still I’d prefer to see a D400 with similar dials as the D800 …

  • grant torres

    This AF system and magnesium alloy body for just US 1,199? I’m in…

  • VivaLasVegas

    This is the bigger brother of D5200, D7100 looks FUGLY!

  • http://www.facebook.com/piipoo.smd Obz Kanhasura

    D7100

  • GlobalGuy

    No AF-ON button???

  • Yannick

    I’ll go with the others and say: WHERE IS THE D400??!! I don’t care about this thing!! If they release a D400 with 16mp, incredible ISO on a DX sensor, same AF as the D4/D800, 8 fps. Sports shooters would buy it instantly! The D7*00 and D600 body is just too small for pro photographers … :(

    • PeterO

      It’s over for the D400 Yannick. Nikon Europe is calling this the flagship DX model.

      • BluBlue

        Seriously? Ugh…

        I really don’t understand why. So many people would love to buy a top end tank-build dx camera.

      • Yannick

        Let’s hope they are wrong. They need a competitor for the 7D and I need a backup for my D800 …

  • Ryan
  • PeterO

    Direct quote from the Nikon website describing the D7100: “As a middle-class DX-format D-SLR”. One could say that this leaves room for a “high class DX-format” camera.

    • PeterO

      Nikon’s marketing department and copy writing department should get their stories straight because Nikon Europe is calling this the flagship Dx

  • gabriel

    the LCD doesn’t have the attachment for the LCD protector. maybe they’ve given it up. Camera describes as for “ADVANCED ENTHUSIAST” so maybe it doesn’t replace D300s afterall. I was expecting improved one hand functionality like that of the Canon 6D. But Nikon still seems to prefer two hand use. One handed use is good when you have a long lens attached.

    • Gabriel

      I quote from DPReview hands-on preview first impressions section

      “In fact in Europe at least, the D7100 is officially being billed by Nikon as its new ‘flagship DX’ camera”
      ????

    • Gabriel

      Thom Hogan believes D300s replacement possible

  • John Hobbs

    D400 still on the way?

    “As a middle-class DX-format D-SLR, it features a highly sophisticated design, which satisfies pride of ownership.”

  • Scott M

    OK, so it will do 7fps in “crop mode” of 1.3X. I still wonder if they will sell a grip that allows even faster. Seems like a posibility. I bet the image quality will be very good.
