    Soo..the D3100 looks fairly impressive as an entry-level camera. It will probably have the D5000 and D3000 sales hit rock bottom.

    Other than that, the D90 replacement is looking promising. If it follows this:

    Magnesium-alloy body
    16MP sensor
    1080 HD video
    Somewhere between 6-8 fps
    Improved ISO range: 100-25600
    39 AF points
    Price: $1199 for body only​

    as stated by Nikonrumors.com, it looks pretty enticing. We now know we can add to this list continuous AF in video mode.

    What does everyone think about this? What can everyone bet the name will be? I know it hasnt been officially released, but I wouldnt have guessed the D3000 replacement would have been called the D3100. Who knows, maybe it could be something different like that? I cant see a D91 coming into play. D90s? D95? D900? Who knows?

    What are your feelings of the initial, but fairly dated, news about this replacement?

    If it has all of those features, it will seem to be highly competitive with the 300s.

    My thoughts exactly. I was thinking about upgrading to the D300s, but then I read about this and decided to wait a month and see what happens.

    Yea except it fell short of these rumored expectations in more that one aspect.

    Got to nikonusa.com

    I was wondering why this was made tonight when Nikon posted it all on their website. It does look pretty nice as most of the stuff is close to true. 1080p 14mp 12600 ISO

    Still looks sexy for an entry level if you ask me.

    Amazon has them new, and for only $100 less than the D3100, mind you.

    Wow. A friend of mine has had one since like 2007 and they're really pieces of garbage, IMO. Even worse and slower than my old Rebel XTi from roughly the same time. I'm REALLY surprised they are still around in any way. I'm surprised that thing wasn't completely cut off as soon as the D3000/D5000 came out.
