    Found this.............

    SPECIFICATIONS

    12.4 megapixels, Same as D2X: 4,288 x 2,848 pixels as well as 3,216 x 2,136-pixels and 2,144 x 1,424 pixels. Automatic rotation of vertical shots.

    CMOS sensor, standard DX size. (23.7 x 15.7 mm)

    Frame Rate: 3 FPS at 12.4 megapixels for up to 10 consecutive NEFs. Bizarre high speed crop (like the D2X): 5 FPS at 6.8 MP for up to 18 NEFs. Image sizes are 3,216 x 2,136, 2,400 x 1,600 or 1,600 x 1,064 pixels when cropped.

    Shutter and Flash Sync: Only 1/250 with flash. Bad, this is worse than the D50/D70/D70s and the same as D2X. Up to 1/8,000 without flash.

    Flash: i-TTL. Works with SB-600 and SB-800. No rumors of a built-in, which is a big defect and another reason I love the D70s. You can do wireless flash control for free with the D70/D70s, but will need to buy a second SB-800 just to control a remote flash from the D200. I have an article here on using the free wireless flash control.

    AF Zones: 11. Only 9 are sensitive to both vertical and horizontal, similar to D2X

    ISO: 100 to 800. Too bad; I love the extra sharpness I get from my one-stop faster D70. Likewise, the D70s and D50 also are twice as fast (ISO 200 - 1,600) and the Canon 20D goes to ISO 3,200 and looks great doing it.

    Memory: Compact Flash Type I and II and Microdrives

    LCD monitor: 2.5" 235,000 dots. White LED backlight like all the other Nikons.

    Metering: 1,005-pixel RGB Matrix, center-weighted and spot, just like the D2X and D70s etc. Also has an ambient light sensor for better auto white balance like the D2X but missing from the D70s.

    Exposure Modes: Program, Shutter priority, Aperture priority and Manual

    USB 2.0. Who cares? I plug my cards into a reader. Studio shooters will love this for tethered shooting.

    Battery: EN-EL3a, just like D70s and compatible with D50, D70 and D100. Includes MH-18a Quick Charger. The EH-5 AC Adapter and MB-D200 Multi-Function Battery Pack are optional.

    Size: 6.2" wide, 4.8" high and 3.4" deep. (158 x 121 x 88 mm). A little bigger than D70 (5.5" wide, 4.4" high, 3.1" deep). Smaller than D2X (6.2" wide, 5.9" tall, 3.4" deep). The biggest difference between them is the height.

    Weight: 29 ounces (810g) empty. Magnesium body. Heavier than D70s' 21 ounces and much less than D2X' 38 ounces.

    Miscellaneous:

    Two new Adobe RGB and sYCC color spaces

    Goofy effects of Image Overlay and Multiple Exposure

    World time clock

    The interesting part of this is not so much the specs but the comments made by the person who wrote it... not a happy camper for some reason.

    Where did it come from, John. No sign of any news today from Nikon, other than a few new compacts and bits. If the above specs are true (doubtful to be honest), then it'll be a mighty fine back-up camera for me.

    Lots of talk about this and some expectation of an announcement from Nikon today. Looks like that will be November with it hitting shops at Xmas.

    Rumoured to be around £1700 or so.....

    Thanks John, Rockwell isn't the most reliable source ... although I'm not sure he deserves the stick he is getting on airliners.net. The japanese sourced photo doesn't look too convincing... creating images of future cameras seems popular these days.
    My prediction (as worthless as most) is that it will not feature a 12.8mp sensor, and delivery won't be this year.

    cheers,
    Andy
