   Nikon D700x Latest Rumors

Rumor: NR Says Not Any Time Soon - Huh?:

In a Q & A session with Peter Giesen from Nikon Germany, he claims "the D700 has been introduced only last year, and we won’t have a successor in the near future”.

Now this makes perfect sense, Nikon appears to be on an approximately 2-year cycle with its pro and prosumer lines, meaning a D700s should arrive around summer 2010. Add to that the fact that the D700 followed the D3 by about 9 months, and we are expecting a D3s imminently, so that also puts the D700s next summer with some of the features that will be appearing in the D3 (presumably video).

However NikonRumors also takes this comment to mean no D700x is imminent - huh?

The rumored D700x is no more a successor to the D700 than the D3x was to the D3. If you want a do-it-all, take pictures in the dark at 14-bits and 8 f.p.s., then the D700 (and its successor) is your camera. If you want higher resolution, but don't care about the frame rate or the ability to shoot in available darkness (i.e. you prefer studio and landscape work over photojournalism, sports shooting etc), then the rumored D700x is for you. These are two very different cameras aimed at two different markets, so claiming no D700x because Nikon says no D700 successor soon makes absolutely no sense whatsoever.
