Nikon may replace the Nikon D800 and D800E with a new D800s model very shortly. According to Nikon Rumors, the next camera in the D800 line could be announced as soon as June 26th. Supposedly the camera will come with a 36MP sensor with the Expeed 4 imaging processor and no bothersome anti-aliasing filter.
While the imaging system seems to be almost exactly the same as the D800E, Nikon will supposedly implement improved software to suppress moiré. Other upgrades to the camera purportedly include a lighter body, improved video shooting, one-stop better low-light performance, a higher 5fps frame rate, higher resolution LCD, and built-in GPS.
Additionally the DSLR is said to adopt the D4s’ improved AF system and be the second camera in Nikon’s history to shoot in the sRaw format. For all those improvements you can bet the camera will be more expensive than the current $3,296.95 Nikon D800E.
We’ll have to wait until June 26th to see if all or any of these rumors hold water. But from the looks of it Nikon will have a much more capable flagship full-frame DSLR coming down the pipe soon and we can’t wait.
