A while back, I was told by our Nikon rep that we should see a change in the low end SLR line up (remember my post about this a few months back in the lead up to the V1/J1?) from Nikon in a few months. He was, as it turned out, hyping the V1/J1 as a replacement for the D3100 end of the dSLR market and it seems he was seeing how we would react to it.
He also mentioned that we would see the Dx100 numbering be the way of 2012 for dSLR models, (as in D3100, D5100, D7100 etc) be what Nikon was likely to do. This is hardly earth shattering, as product refreshes are always on the way from major corporations and we are also 66% of the way there already with the 3100 and 5100. This must be something going to happen eventually, especially considering the shorter product refresh times in the market now when compared to a few years ago.
Now we see another typo rumor (it's not the first), on the main blog pages that mentions a "D7100".
Putting the recent floods in Thailand to one side, and the desire for a top-end product update, I wonder what kind of specification and new features that such a model (D7100) body that would arrive in 2012 might have?
