Latest technical data are : 10,4 Mpx - ISO 100 à 1600 - 1.5x - 5 fps - 30s to 1/8000s - flash sync 1/500sec - 11 area MultiCAM1400 AF (not the same as the D2/F6) !
I hope it's true...

flash sync 1/500sec
If that is the case then flash synch will be most probably possible at all speeds (unofficially - like the D70), because it means it will be using an electronic shutter at higher shutter speeds.

Would that 16-70 focus to 1:1 macro at the 70mm focal length?
I really don't think this lens (if real) will be 1:1 on any length, but if this is the case I will get one for sure! Also, Nikon already has 3 DX lenses in this general focal length (18-70, 18-55 and 17-55), I don't see much reason for another one. A fast 10-2X (twenty something) would be sweet.

It is not in English, but anybody can tell that the major upgrade for version 1.61 is to add support to D200 NEF files.

All right, for those waiting and waiting, hold your breath, the announcement is very close. The name D200 is starting to appear in official Nikon pages, here is the link for a Nikon page in Sweden for a yet-to-be-released update of Picture Project:
I translated it and what it really means is that you can take two D100 exposures and COMBINE them together for a 'D200' file. They apologized for the confusion

I hope that Nikon has learned from the past and has planned a short and reliable time between announcement and deliveries. But then while I am wishing, I'd like to walk downstairs and find a Porsche Cayman waiting for me...
