Today, Dec 15, on the main blog are the preliminary specs for the new D7200. Here are the specs with my comments:
New 24MP APS-C sensor - of course, no surprises
Nikon D750 styled body with a tilting screen - Good move with the tilt screen. After using one on my D750, I like it.
Expeed 4 processor - okay
MultiCAM 3500DX2 autofocus system - not sure if this is the same or different than the D7100.
51 AF points - of course
Built-in Wi-Fi - no surprise here. Nikon is moving away from the dongle to the built in. The D750 Wi-Fi is better than the D7100+dongle.
6fps - surprise. Expected 6.5 fps.
Buffer: 16 RAW+JPG - okay. I will have to look this one up so see the D7100 rating. Wonder what the JPEG rating is?
Video: 1080p @60
and 720p @120
(not sure about 4k) - Okay, kind of expected 4K but this should work.
Video aperture will be adjustable during live view - okay, like the D750 I assume.
Expected announcement in the first few months of 2015 - This was everyone projection - announced at CES or Feb Photo show. Consistent with what the Nikon representative told me Friday. Still expect it to be announced in January.
