Now Nikon Rumors has a post titled: Breaking News: Nikon D800 with the 24 Megapixels Sony sensor! Plus new Nikon D3 with anti-dust! WOW! that quotes a story in the August-September issue of the French photo magazine, Chasseurs d'Images that describes two new models (or one new model plus a revised model).
But, if the 24 megapixel sensor is in a D700 size body, will the "D800" have the dust-removal system, which -- according to Bjorn Roslett -- is responsible for the slight reduction in finder coverage on the D700? Is a 90% viewfinder an acceptable tradeoff for a 24 megapixel sensor in a smaller body? According to the French magazine, Nikon have added the dust-removal system to the D3. But there is probably room for this in the larger body and it seems unlikely that they'd reduce the viewfinder coverage from 100%.
One thing is certain, though: the choices don't seem to be getting any easier!
