We have been talking about the expected Nikon announcement here for a while. It seemed pretty likely to be a D800s, but there was a chance that the rumored D9300 may be announced. Now we know, as well as things can be known prior to an announcement, that the D800s is it.

According to a report over on Nikon Rumors, they have confirmed that the D800s will be announced on June 26th. This is not a case of we think it will be then, supposedly someone has confirmed it, so while salt is always needed in these cases, this is about as close to a sure thing as you can get.
