Why not anyone have made a reference for this Nikon announcement?
I believe it is true (or maybe a inside joke), it is on a official youtube page.

    If there is going to be an announcement you will read about it coming here L-O-N-G before you will see a surprise video on youtube!

    This sounds like my kind of D400 if it is true put me on the list. Would want to know more about it though.

    The D5 not so much.

    I can wait for the next D8XX.

    Not to mention, if it is an official announcement, it will be on a Nikon website before anywhere else.

    I know I am a dreamer. My wife thinks I spend too much on gear anyway.

    The sensor stabilisation is probably a difficult thing for Nikon to achieve but the other specs not so.
    Please Nikon give us 4K or at least a higher bitrate encoding, I hate external recorders.
    I don't want to be grumpy, I love my D750 for video but I wish I had 2-3 features of sony mirrorless, like focus peaking. Maybe with a firmware update? Just hopping . . .

    Thom Hogan is suggesting a big first quarter of 2016 for Nikon. D5 and maybe a D500 or body with a 50+ FX sensor.

    " That said, I’ll introduce a global rumor ;~). Q1 of 2016 is going to be crazy. From my talks with various folk in the camera companies, it seems that everyone is targeting that time period for their “next leap.” Nikon is easy: the D5 kicks off their next round of cameras, and it’s highly likely to be accompanied by one or more other cameras (ala the D3/D300 and D4/D800 launches). "

    Sensor stabilization is what makes me think the add is fake. Why do we need it unless you are going to use old AI S lenses. Wouldn't Nikon rather sell us a new lens instead of getting a good old one off the shelf?

    Man oh man has there ever been a product from Nikon that has been lusted over as much as the fictional D400? I mean seriously it's been like 8 years of predictions and images being released on this. Surely it would have come out by now. The D300s was as close as it got..

    For a flagship body in 2015 that costs $6000 + (USD) those specs on the D5 are disappointing..... It should do 120FPS 4k recording and offer XLR audio inputs and outputs....

    Honestly I never thought I would use my DSLR for video work, but after working with the D810........ The video is so clean at night, it is crazy compared to camcorders....I never pick up my camcorder anymore.

    I will wait and see what happens with the D900 save $2000 and see what happens with 50+mp stills.

    LOL. I seriously doubt it though, he can always just go to work and shoot another stunning bikini model to put his mind at ease; that's what I would do ;)

    I don't see the need to go out and buy D400, if its real. I love my D7200 and I can't justify the logic of putting $2200 just because its D400. D7200 can do 95% of the stuff you dreamers want from still mythical and vaporous D400, :)) Seriously, some of you D400 zealots are missing out on fantastic camera My next camera will be FX body most likely a D750 follow on.

    D7200 can do 95% of the stuff your future FX can do, but you still want it. I hope you're able to see the similarity??

    What I'm saying is instead of hoping and dreaming about the camera we may never get to see, people should go out and get the best DX camera on the market today. and what if I plan to buy FX body, isn't it a logical evolution? I bought D7200 because it suits my current needs You start with 35mm, point'n shoot/smartphone, APS-C, them the Full Frame, am I wrong?

    Pretty much why a new D400 or a a replacement for the D700 came out. Nikon went a different direction with D610 or D7200 bodies etc.

    We all shoot different things and it is great you love your D7200. That extra 5% that is missing is a high frame rate, a full metal jacket to attach big 300,400, 500 and 600 primes to, a dedicated AF-On button and a few ports that are missing. For someone like me the 5/6 FPS was a slap in the face after waiting 2 years for the D7100 to be upgraded. Not that I would recommend it to most, but for what and how I shoot, switching to Canon became a no-brainer. If Nikon did indeed have a D400 I would have never left. I personally have no interest in going back to full frame (again for what I shoot) as I already did the D800. The D800 is a freaking awesome camera, btw. So just because you love your D7200, which IMHO is not the best DX camera on the market for what I shoot, doesn't mean it is what everyone else should shoot with..

    Wow, next time remind me not to talk about the camera that doesn't even exist and which camera is the best DX body out there? 7DMk2, K3, A99? I was waiting for D400 too I skipped D7000-7100 but I gave up and if Nikon decide to bring it out I'll take a serous consideration but We don't see this happening do we? all you guys had to go by is some Youtube video. Honestly if we were to believe all the BS they upload to Youtube, we wouldn't be here. we would've been consumed by 2012, Niburu, Zombies, and X class solar flair

    My partner now has the 7D2 and is very happy with it - pretty much for the same reasons CoastalConn says he likes it and it is a very good camera. nukuEX2 is also right, the D7200 is superb for 95% of people (and the IQ soundly whoops the 7D2), but I still feel it is a class below the 7D2/D400 level. Even if the D400's IQ was no better than the D7200, a deeper buffer, pro quality chassis and high frame rate would be enough to make most of us happy.

    I just hope that kanuk is wrong if he is saying that the D7200 is instead of the D400.

    High FPS seems to be important to Coastalconn, and since he said he switched to Cannon I assume he regards the EOS 7DmkII as the best APS-C camera on the market.

    Personally, the D7100/D7200 fills all my needs. I want a camera, not a main battle tank. If it had a dedicated AF-ON button I would probably never use it. Higher FPS would be a "nice to have", not a "need to have". The only things I miss is the tiltable screen and the flat image profile the D750 has.
    Nikon D7100 with Sigma 10-20 mm, Nikon 16-85 mm, Nikon 70-300 mm, Sigma 150-500 mm, Nikon 28 mm f/1.8G and Nikon 50 mm f/1.8G.

    My only point was that I said "for what I shoot" I'm not a fanboy of any sort and I freely admit that the IQ of the D7200 is better than the 7dm2. But for me the 7dm2 with a used Canon 500 F4 cost less than a used Nikon 500 F4 would have cost. So for someone like me that shoots birds and a mostly BIF, the 6 FPS (5 in 14 bit) just doesn't cut it. I got tons of great shots with the D7100 but I had the D300 with a grip prevously and I really missed the speed and build quality. I am really tough on my gear and shoot in rain, sleet, snow, laying in Sandy beaches so the battle tank is what i need. Again, just my humble opinion. I have several friends that still shoot Nikon and I hope one day the D400 materilizes for them. However they fell into Nikons trap and shoot D810 and D4s now.

    I was not able to grab a photo of it, but I swear I saw a photographer with a strap that said "D5" on the news footage last week when the pope visited the US.... I am sure that was a "opps" by the photographer, I mean, the D5 is not out yet.... must have been a mistake.

    Looking through the video footage to see if I can grab a still of it...
