    Hey everyone, I was looking to upgrade my D80 to a D90 although its been a fair amount of time since the D90 has been released. Does anyone know if a successor (ex. D100) will be released anytime soon by Nikon? It seems like the D90 is at its final days...

    According to NikonRumors, expect an announcement on August 19th. I believe there is a D95 coming online with 34 focal points. Also some new lenses (including an 18-200 FX) and a replacement to the D3000 (D3100) are expected.

    Or at least, rumored. At this point nothing is certain.

    There were 2½ years from the D70 launch to the D80 launch, and only 2 years between the D80 and D90. The D90 was launched just short of 2 years ago as of 8/19.

    There was a D70s so the next D90 may be a D90s with only slight improvement. What the D90 really needs is a video capability on par with, or better than video in the Canon T2i.

    I have heard nothing yet, but with Canon getting ready to anonce the 60D along with some other stuff, I don't expect Nikon will stand by and say nothing so I'll go out on a limb here and say most defiantly. It's about that time anyways.

    Nikon has been in the works of a replacement for the D90 and the D300s. I doubt they'll move to a D90s. Shoot me if I'm wrong. Supposedly on Nikon Rumors they're going to a D95. Everyone's been anticipating they're new layout with more autofocus points, better video, more FPS, and of course a much larger sensor then they're traditional 12.3 that's been in many of their cameras. I feel that they will release something for the D90 and the D300s and even the D700 before they do anything about the D3k or D5k. Only thing I would look forward to is better video and better ISO performance.. well atleast availability to go to a higher ISO and better performance upon that availability. I'd be pretty pissed if they released a D3k replacement... just because i JUST got mine 3 months ago. D:

    Photokina 2010 will be help Tuesday, September 21 to Sunday, September 26, 2010 in Cologne, Germany. That is a world stage,and one which Nikon has used many times over the past decades to premier big, new products that they are proud of...Photokina gets a huge amount of European press coverage...

    I think better video is the area they will focus on in a D90 follow-up. It might be as simple as iterating the D90 to an s version called D90s, as KmH speculates above. It's always hard to predict what,exactly, Nikon will do, but the 2-year upgrade cycle means a D90 replacement or update/refresh/iteration could come at ANY TIME now...

    Ive been thinking of upgrading my D90 to a D300, so hopefully this replacement will be something close to a D300 with video. :)

    save your money and wait for a replacement. D90 is better than the D300. If you WERE to upgrade you should go for a D300s.

    The D90 is not better than the D300 in all regards.

    What does the D300 have that the D90 doesn't have? For the cost of paying extra money that is.
