    So this is the new APS-C sensor of choice of the next two years…

      Yes, I’m keeping my fingers crossed for a D400 that is the same size and build of a D800. I a;ready have the batery pack and would be frustrated to have to buy two! The D300 and D700 shared the same battery pack.

    Hmm, could the D7100 and/or D400 use that same sensor as well?

      Exactly what I was thinking!

        Yeah, I already read that but we can’t be sure until the official announcement :)

        Do you have more specs about D7000 replacement? I doubt it will have a less than 6.5fps. Also it’s a question how fast readout can achieve 24MP Toshiba sensor found in D5200 can achieve and also I doubt it will be 24MP Sony sensor in D7100 cause it’s inferior at high ISO to Toshiba. So if Sony improved high ISO with incoming 20MP sensor compared to 16MP and 24MP Sony’s it could the one use in D7100.

    Yes! Nikon APS-C at 8-10 fps, better low light ability then D3200, I have some faith, this would be perfect to fill the gap between mirrorless and FX.

    That sensor size and number of pixels would fit very nicely between the RX1 and RX100…I am wondering if a RX10 is a possibility one day!…That would be sweet.
