Nikon-D800-200mm

There’s been rumors circulating around for quite some time now about Nikon releasing their next full-frame DSLR this summer. After a good amount of time, it’s finally official: according to Nikon Rumors, it’s confirmed that the next DSLR from Nikon will be announced on June 26.

What do we know about it so far? For starters, this is the camera that’s meant to replace the company’s D800/E line; no actual information is given out on the next model’s name, but it could be anything from an Apple-esque “S” upgrade to something completely different. For now, most people are going with the former option: the D800s. The new camera is reported to be manufactured in Thailand.

While we’re awaiting the unveiling, keep on the lookout for more deals on Nikon D800/E cameras from here on. Considering the replacement’s on the horizon, this can be a great time to start looking for price cuts on the older models. Stay tuned for the actual announcement when it airs, and we’ll be covering the new full-frame on everything you’ll need to know. Until then, check out the rumored specs for the camera after the jump.

Considering Nikon rarely updates these cameras, you’ll want to take advantage of whenever they do. One of the most significant changes brought forth in this one is the fix to the memory card lamp, which is something Nikon’s tried addressing before. Hopefully they have it down this time, along with the rest of their changes.
