Photography Bay seems to be cranking on its reputation as rumor central for the photography community. In addition to today's intimations about new Canon dSLRs, and a suggestion that Sony is discontinuing the DSLR-A700, the blog deconstructed a post on DPReview to hint at a new midrage Nikon full-frame dSLR targeted to compete with the Canon EOS 5D, and quotes speculation from bythom that a Nikon D90 and D3X will appear some time between May 12 and June 16. Nikon USA's comment: "You will be absolutely the first to be NDA'd if there is any legitimate product news coming from Nikon. Until then, everything you see about new products is an unsubstantiated rumor, and as you know, we're unable to comment on rumors."

The D80 is certainly ripe for replacement, and "D3X" might make a nice name for a midrange full-frame model.
