We first reported the initial rumors of a new Nikon full frame DSLR last week, and from the start, a popular thought was that this would be a D7xx camera, but there was nothing behind that, just speculation. Today, however, it is speculation no more.
According to a new rumor report over on Nikon Rumors, that site is now confirming (by what means we do not know, so take with some salt) that the soon-to-be announced Nikon full frame will, in fact, be called the D750. It seems that our hopes and desires have finally been realized and Nikon is coming out with a legitimate D700 replacement.
The author of the post over at NR is also 95% confident that the D750 will feature a 24.3MP sensor, and will be announced at or ahead of Photokina. At this time, they are still not sure what AF system the camera will sport, nor if the camera will have an AA filter or not.
Just as a refresher, here are the latest rumored specs of the upcoming Nikon D750 full frame DSLR.
Nikon D750 Rumored Specs
- 24MP full frame sensor
- Tilting LCD screen
- Wi-Fi support
- Expeed 4 imaging processor
- Very light body (probably similar to the D610 and Df, maybe even lighter)
- Priced around $2,500
- Potential announcement at the end of August or early September
To me, this looks as if Nikon is either finally listening to customers, who have been clamoring for what seems like ages for legitimate D700 and D300s replacements. Still no dice on the D300s replacement, but this is great news for D700 hold outs who have not seen anything from Nikon worth upgrading to yet.
Stay tuned for more details, as we will bring them to you as we are made aware of them…
