Nikon roadmap leaked?

It appears Nikons 2009-10 schedule for release of cameras and lenses has been leaked. At least that is the claim. But it can of course just as well be fantasies or a wish list created by someone having to much time to spend!

A short summary:

August 4 introduction: (Apparently the end of July presentation is for compact cameras)

  • Nikon D3000
  • Nikon D300s with Full-HD movie 24 fps, improved AF, self timer + mirror-up, cf + sd-slot
  • AF-S DX 17-65/3.2-4 G VR with 72(!) mm filter

October 15 presentation:

  • Nikon D700x with 24.5 MP, Full-HD movie 24 fps, improved AF and self timer + mirror-up
  • AF-S Nikkor 24-135mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR (The FX-dream-walk-around-lens?)
  • AF-S Nikkor 70-200mm f/2.8G ED VR II (What everybody waited for! 82 mm filter, 1530 g)
  • AF-S Nikkor 35mm f/1.4G
  • AF-S Nikkor 85mm f/1.4G (No VR?)

Q1/2010:

  • AF-S Nikkor 14-28mm f/3.5-4.5G ED
  • AF-S Nikkor 120-450mm f/4.5-5.6G ED VR II (Replacement for 80-400? 82 mm, 1480 g)

Q2/2010:

  • Nikon D4 with 15.7 MP, improved 1 EV, Full HD-movie 30fps
  • Nikon D400 with 13.8 MP, improved 1 EV, Full HD-movie 24fps

Q3/2010:

  • AF-S Nikkor 300mm f/4G VR (On the waiting list for many!)
  • AF-S Nikkor 400mm f/5.6G VR (Have been missing a long time!)
  • AF-S Nikkor 70-240mm f/3.5-4.5G VR (The missing medium size telezoom!)
  • AF-S Nikkor 105mm f/2G DC (A small surprise. No VR?)
  • AF-S Nikkor 24-85mm f/4G VR
  • AF-S DX Nikkor 60-95mm f/2G VR (The DX dream-telezoom!)
  • AF-S DX Nikkor 17-60mm f/2.8G VR (Replacing 17-55 with addition of VR)
  • Nikon Coolpix P1DX with DX 12.3 MP stabilised sensor, 28-85/3.5-5.6 zoom (comparable to FX, actually 18-56), 2.9 inch 920k-display, movable upwards for macro.

Q4/2010:

  • Nikon D4X with 30.2 MP with 1 EV improved sensitivity

I assume all VR-lenses are actually VR II even if it is not stated.

Thanks EnPassant for the link!
