We have all been wondering when Nikon would announce their answer to the Canon 7D Mark II, and if the latest chatter is to believed, it could be coming very soon.

According to the new report over on Nikon Rumors, Nikon could be looking to challenge the 7D Mark II with the next edition in the D7xxx line, which is expected to be the D7200. The post goes on to say that the release could come any time between now and March 13th, but does not go into any more detail than that.

WPPI is coming up at the beginning of March, and it is one of the largest photography expos in the US. An announcement at WPPI, or framed around it, would make a lot of sense if Nikon wants to start the D7200 off with a bang.

The question I ask myself though, is how accurate those specs are that leaked a while back. If those are what Nikon is giving us in the D7200, then it will be no contest against the 7D Mark II. The 7D would blow it out of the water. I am very curious to see how serious Nikon is about competing with the 7D Mark II and its capabilities.

Anyway, we should know more in the next couple of weeks, should this rumor be correct. Stay tunes and we will keep you updated.
