Nikon D3 and D700 replacements coming August

New top-end cameras incoming

Names yet to be revealed, but expect killer specs when new Nikons officially land.

Nikon is said to be priming two new top-end, full-frame DSLRs for release in August. The duo are set to replace the current top-end DS and D700, according to fan site Nikon Rumors.

A Nikon Rumors reader, who’d spoken with dealers at a special event, claimed that the new models would be “significantly different” to the current D3 and D700 in terms of spec and design.

On top of that, one will be aimed at “expert” snappers, while another will be made for “pros”. Either way, each one will only be meant for those who take their photography a touch more seriously than your average, compact-wielding consumer.
