Fans of the Nikon D700 have been clamoring for a “true” replacement for the D700 for what seems like forever now, same with the D300s people. A new rumor has brought some new life to those hopes…

According to a post on Nikon Rumors, Nikon is set to announce a new Full Frame DSLR positioned between the Nikon D610 and Nikon D810 at Photokina this year. We even have some basic specs and pricing, which is more than many rumors we see, so that could be a sign that this rumor has a little more meat than some.

Rumored Nikon FF Specs

  • 24MP FF sensor
  • Tilting LCD screen
  • Wi-Fi Built In
  • Expeed 4 imaging processor
  • Very light body
  • Priced around ~$2,500
  • Announcement at the end of August or early September
  • No idea on the model name – it could be D620, D750 or something completely different

Nikon Rumors is confident in this rumor to give this a 70% chance of being accurate. They are confident the camera is coming, but the specs is what gives them pause. But still, this is big news from Nikon considering their latest full frame offerings have all been incremental D810/D610 upgrades not worthy of much fanfare.

This next month and a half should be very interesting as both Canon and Nikon are set to make some pretty big announcements. It will be interesting to see if either will release something special, worthy of all the hype these rumors are drudging up.
