D400 now more than a rumor?

sounds very interesting; I'd trade my D600 if it has good low-light performance, since it's geared more toward sports.

It will have the same sensor as the D7100 so it will be the same
low-light performance...

OK, that dampers my thought of trading the D600 a bit; though the D400 has other new features geared toward sports/wildlife shooting.

Pop Photo's review of the D7100 showed moderate noise at 3200 (2.7) and 6400 (2.8 rating, almost into unacceptable range - 3.0); and 4.8 at 12800.

D600 was 1.8 at 3200 and 2.5 at 6400, 3.2 at 12800.

But I'm still wondering if Nikon will be able to tweak that sensor a bit more for the D400 at high ISO.

I doubt they will get much more performance out of it, it's already the best
crop frame sensor that Nikon offers... It's all the other additional features
that will set the D400 above the D7100 that will make it special...

Comparing it to the D600 is not realistic since (I believe) the D600 even beats the
D800 at low-light performance... Additionally, comparing low-light performance of
a crop frame to any full frame the full frame will always win, it's apples to oranges...

The D400 isn't meant to compete with full frame, it's meant to be the top-o'-the-line
crop frame bar none... ;)
