I don't think there is any serious risk of the D7200 NOT having all of those things with one exception: high clean ISO. By that I mean a clean image with solid color at 12,800 native ISO.
I think Nikon won't do it for the D7200 but will try to do it for the D400 to differientiate the D400 and make it a "DX D4."
... The vast majority of Nikon's top lenses are designed for FXput them on a DX sensor and you throw away a lot of information which inevitably must mean a drop in IQ
...Who needs a pro/pro-consumer DX when FF is even available in consumer bodies.? Now, a serious question ...Does anyone have any opinion about the extra manufacturing cost a FF sensor brings over an APS-C one ?
IMO for the D400 to be successful it will have to have about 12,800 native ISO, 8-9 FPS. .
"totally ridiculous idea?" Maybe. Some people said the same thing when I suggested a low price FX priced far below the D700 which could also be considered to be the top of the DX price-range. My comments were panned by some as "never will happen since Nikon cannot produce an FX body for less than about $3,000 which was the cost of the D700." Those people were assuming DX and FX price points would remain constant. Yet, Nikon did produce the D600 and we do see it priced now for $1,700 new or Nikon reconditioned which was the cost of the D300 and D300s. I think time has proven my comments more right than wrong.
