At the start of October, it was reported that the Nikon D800 is expected by the end of this year, but apart from a few specifications, there was nothing to really go by. According to a post by Nikon Rumors, this has changed to a slight extent with the website now displaying a few images and specifications of the brand’s high end DSLR. While most of the rumoured specifications remain the same the website has dished out a few more details on the D700’s successor.
