Retailers pulling Nikon D90s to prepare for new model? Update: Confirmed

The D90, Nikon’s popular and versatile enthusiast DSLR, may be approaching the end of its lifespan. It was leaked in August of 2008 and has been a solid contender ever since, despite having some serious skew on its video. And now, almost two years later, it appears to be being pulled from retail shelves in order to make room for a successor.

It is whispered that this successor will be announced at Photokina in late September. Chances are we’ll see bits and pieces of it before then, just like last time. This is all unconfirmed, but stay tuned.

Confirmed: Nikon Rumors reports that one of the major retailers took the first step, and marked it as a clearance item, with limited availability. So long to a great camera.
