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 decitre.fr, 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?
