The rumours I've read assume that this new Nikon is a 12MP camera that uses the latest Sony A7s 12MP sensor. Many people hope that it's a D700 replacement with the D810 AF.
Straight from nikonrumors: Another full frame Nikon DSLR camera coming for Photokina | Nikon Rumors

Like I said, the suggested specs look a lot like the 'most likely' Pentax FF we've been discussing here for the past few months (ie K-3 specs with FF sensor).

Is Nikon deliberately trying to cut Pentax off at every pass????

Perhaps there were some Pentax shooters amongst the Nikon tech team that got so tired waiting for Pentax to release a FF body to use all their FF K-mount lenses on, that they decided to make one themselves. Just to break the aging spell of waiting...

I think the situation has been reversed. Nikon D400 ---> is actually Pentax K-3. Imagine if the successor of Nikon D700 ----> is the next Pentax FF. Hmm, I do wish Pentax FF will be launched this year. Otherwise, Nikon and Canon will get their momentum back again. See this: Nikon next action camera: rumors

When you're continually 'working on it' and never delivering anything, you get cut off at every pass.

Step one is to get on your horse and ride.

Pentax is a small enough player that Nikon probably doesn't build their strategy around what Pentax might do. If Nikon (or Canon) feared Pentax they could have bought the name from Hoya, mined the technology and patents, then killed the brand.

That was probably more expensive then ignoring the brand.

I wouldn't be so sure. Following the K-3 and the 645Z I think both are watching Pentax with more than idle curiosity.

Nikon, far more than Canon, seems to be defending their FX line with multiple new products in recent times. That's probably not entirely down to Pentax (I'm sure Sony and others are causing concern too), but I definitely think they're worried nonetheless.

I'm of the view that the senior product managers of the Japanese camera makers are really part of a monthly 'lunch group' that probably meet once a month to talk about market trends and decide how they will operate together. It seems a collegial, rather than nakedly competitive, business culture over there.
