    yes, you do.
    wow, talk about twisting things.

    the d7100 has two memory slots and custom user configurations. i'm
    pretty sure it can control multiple banks of flashes since it can be an
    ittl commander but i haven't looked into that.

    have you even used a d7100?

    One major difference is that the D300 uses a CompactFlash card only,
    and the D300S uses a CompactFlash and a SD card.

    Well, somebody thought you passed your conclusion off as fact, and a couple of
    comments about fact checking ensued.

    : more of the usual let's twist what he says and bash.

    I don't recall bashing you. I'd concede that the evidence, such as it is,
    suggests that you may well be right (that Nikon has changed their naming
    convention). I just don't think you've proved it.

    I know, which is why I am asking why you're demanding "proof" of nospam's
    speculation? That's what I don't understand. You keep saying that he hads
    claimed knowledge about Nikon's naming convention when he has done no such
    thing, and you demand proof. I just don't get it.
    That's how rumors work.
    Of course there isn't, if there was, it wouldn't be a rumor.
    *What* does he *seem* to know, mr Duck?? You keep claiming that nospam has
    some knowledge, yet he has never ever claimed to have any such knowledge.
    It's all in your mind.
    Says the guy that has posted demands for proof from a guy that has made no
    explicit statement of knowledge. Talk about having nothing else to add.

    F1,F2,F3,F4,F5 & F6 were pro cameras. And 24X36. So even this
    affirmation is not accurate.[/QUOTE]

    those were film cameras.

    there was no dx with film (and i don't mean aps which had a different
    naming scheme anyway), although olympus did have a half-frame film

    there was also no nikon f1, it was a nikon f. canon had an f1 and
    later, the new f1.

    nikon's naming scheme back then was 1 digit pro (f2, f3, etc.) and
    letters (fm, fe, em) or numbers (f100, n80, etc.) for non-pro.

    the big difference is that film cameras didn't advance anywhere near as
    rapidly so there weren't as many cameras to name (although they did
    sometimes have regional variations).
    the mode wheel on the d7100 locks.

    it will not accidentally be changed.

    actually the d7100 and d610 are very similar other than sensor size and
    a 51 point autofocus in the d7100 versus 39 in the d610. otherwise, the
    differences are minor, if any.
    i think you mean d400 versus a future d7200.

    the d9300 is the rumoured name of what people want for a d400.

    the d7100 is actually quite a bit more advanced than a d300s, but with
    a small buffer.

    if they do a d9300 they'll need to differentiate it from a future d7200
    somehow. buffer is one way but there are no doubt others.

    Like frame rate; card type & capacity, (Nikon just upgraded the firmware
    on the D800 to work with cards with cards over 128 g; power consumption;
    sensor quality; ease of changing modes; etc.

    the d7100 can shoot 6 fps or 7 fps at 1.3x crop, at both 12 or 14 bit

    the d300s can shoot 6 fps with the built in battery and 8 fps with a
    battery pack, however, if you set it to 14 bit, it drops to 2.5 fps,
    which is slower than an old d70.

    the d7100 sensor is about as good as it gets for dx at the moment.

    in other words, there's not much more they can do in a d9300 with
    regards to frame rate or sensor quality to differentiate it from a
    d7100 or its successor.

    : > ...and we still need a D400 and eventually a D500, they are holes in

    : you might think the hole needs filling but that doesn't mean nikon sees
    : it that way.
    : it's been 5 years since the d300s came out so obviously nikon is not in
    : any particular rush.

    Where's the incentive? The D400 would be competing against the wildly
    successful Canon 7D. Arguably better to wait and see if Canon makes a misstep
    (in either features or price) with the 7D Mk II.

    isn't that the point? to compete with canon?

    the 7d competitor would be the wildly successful d7000 and its
    successor, the d7100.

    the d7100 is 24 mp, versus 18mp in the canon. the d7100 also has a 51
    point autofocus system, versus 19 point in the canon.

    it's competing just fine.
