The cries and pleas of Nikon fanboys everywhere may finally be answered. According to Nikon Rumors, the company will be releasing another full frame DSLR coined the Nikon D750. It will sit below the D810 and above the Nikon D610. And for many that stated that the D800 and D810 weren’t true successors to the D700, the D750 will feature a more modest 24.3MP full frame sensor according to reports.
More analysis is after the jump.

According to another post on Nikon Rumors, the specs will be
- 24MP full frame sensor
- Tilting LCD screen
- Wi-Fi support
- Expeed 4 imaging processor
- Very light body (probably similar to the D610 and Df, maybe even lighter)
- Priced around $2,500 (the current Nikon FX camera price points are – D610: $1,896.95, Df: $2,746.95, D810: $3,296.95, D4s: $6,496.95)
- Potential announcement at the end of August or early September
- No idea on the model name – it could be D620, D750 or something completely different
- The probability rating on this rumor is currently at 70% – I am pretty confident that this camera is coming, I am just not sure about the detailed specifications (if you have any more details, you can contact me anonymously here)
The camera is supposed to much more action oriented–which is what Nikon is really missing in their full frame lineup right now. The D610 is positioned at the entry level crowd while the D810 is for the studio and pros with the Df being for the old school pros. But they don’t have something that it truly like the D4s or their other top of the line cameras.
Years ago when Nikon released the D700, it was a baby version of the Nikon D3–which back then was at the top of the hill and couldn’t be outdone until Nikon released the D3s and the D3x.
With Photokina 2014 drawing closer, we’re just going to have to see what comes our way.
