Nikon D800 Possibly Leaked by Listing for French Book

A French book titled “Obtenez le maximum du Nikon D800″ (translates to “Getting the most from the Nikon D800″) has popped up on Amazon and, possibly leaking details of an upcoming successor to the Nikon D700. The description is computer translated as,

Sold in August 2008 at a price of 2,800 euros, the Nikon D700 (top of the line) was a great success. He will be replaced in late 2009 by the Nikon D800. Among the improvements of the device: the doubling of the sensor, which increases from 12 to 24 megapixels. The D800 is likely to be sold between 2000 and 2500 euros. This book is a comprehensive guide to discovery, empowerment and development of the Nikon D800.

The book is scheduled to be published on February 9th, 2011, so if this is legit the camera should be announced prior to that date (i.e. in the next few months). The D700 has been out for two years now, so an announcement soon would make sense.

What do you think of this supposed leak?

    that would be great. however i cant easily part with my D700

  • Noel Hurtley

    Let’s hope it’s real. Sounds like a great upgrade!

  • Kris Jon Boorman

    If it has decent video, this could be a deciding factor that shifts my attention from the 7D…

  • Zach Stern

    If it’s real why does it say the D800 will be released in 2009….

  • Hans Mast

    It seems like a clever marketing trick by the book’s author rather than a genuine leak.

    I sure hope so… will make room for some very handsomely priced used D700’s :)

    I hope price will be 2000 euros even if it probably will be 2500. Whatever will be the price, I’ll buy it if it match the promises.
