Hot Rumor: Nikon D5500 to replace D5000 ?

According to NikonRumor’s sources , there’s new rumor about Nikon D5500 being the next replacement camera for Nikon D5000. I don’t get it. Why not name it D5100, just like Nikon D3100 as D3000 successor.

Anyway , it’s just a rumor .. anything can happen . Remember that rumors about Nikon D95 being D90 replacement ?

NR also has some info about its specs :

  • metering and AF modules adapted from Nikon D3100
  • (still) no AF motor
  • new 1080 HD video recording with manual controls
  • LCD screen can be detach from the body  ( nicee.. )
  • slightly larger body than the Nikon D3100
