qdm, my bete is it will not. They will tweak it against the regular consumers before having semipro and pro shooters hammer it. Soccer Mom's are more forgiving. That's my guess anyway.
D90 Replacement Discussion- Rumored Specs & Reactions(83 posts) (30 voices)
My guess is that the D90 replacement (named D95 I hope) will be worth buying as a backup DSLR camera. Our D90 gets a lot of use because of the video mode and at times the video mode produces GREAT results. I do not have a D300s but have seen great results with it, and that is one great field camera. I agree with those Nikon Rumors guys who will wait and see the actual test results before I actually buy one. The current D90 is a very good investment and at least we know it is a keeper with no really bad habits. If the new AF video is a success and if the still capabilities are improved it will be a highly successful camera in the market. I for one wonder about the all or part metal body although my D300 has earned my respect under challenging conditions. I do feel that that is a dandy way to add weight. Actually one of the MOST important cameras for Nikon to COMPETE with is the Canon T2i which is attracting huge sales volume and respect for its video abilities. I do not like the Canon T2is build quality but it is light, affordable and is producing amazing results. I would not buy a Canon T2i. But it has become one of Canons biggest guns image wise. So procrastinate about Nikon D3s or other expensive cameras all you want but to be really a great camera for sales there had better be BANG FOR THE BUCK!
OK so a D??? with a 16.7mp DX sensor with ISO performance rivaling the D700/D3? (ISO 6400 looks like 400) Any one interested :^)
Hi, first post here!
I'm certainly looking forward to the D90 replacement. I'm really hoping that Nikon will keep the internal AF motor, though (I have two Tokina lenses, which won't AF with my D40). I'm also ready to have some HD video, too! =) More AF points will be nice, as well as better noise performance. Add me to the list of potential D90 replacement buyers!
Yes the AF motor will still be there.
Bumping this up in light of recent rumors.
The list of supposed specs, so far:
1080 HD video
Somewhere between 6-8 fps
Improved ISO range: 100-25600 (probably lo 100/hi 25600)
39 AF points
Built in AF motor
Dual card slots
Price: $1199 for body only
Anybody have anything to add?
I think the price might be $1299 body only.
It's interesting that the canon 50D (metal body) replacement will be a plastic 60D. Many people wondered how canon could have the 7D and 60D so close together price wise. The answer is that the 60D will be plastic and have a swivel screen like the G11. So it seems like the Nikon "D95" and the canon 60D have reversed roles. Nikon had the less expensive plastic "prosumer" camera while canon had the all metal semipro camera priced at 1299 body only. Seems now that they have switched positions.
OK so we now know the name of the D90 "replacement" will be the Nikon D7000. Let's continue the discussion in a new thread as this one is already too long. All the good stuff is coming.
