I am getting all kinds of reports from around the world about Nikon lenses rumors and they are not consistent. All the information we got for the D90, D700, P6000 and even with the CoolPix prior to the announcement was consistent and clearly described the product before the official launch. We do not have the same percent of certainty with the lenses. I do not know why - this may change as we approach Photokina. I hope.
Here are some examples (emails from readers):
- "There will be a new version of the 70-200 f/2.8 Nikkor (backordered? in B&H) with very high probability (Photokina 08). A retailer in ***, confirmed this rumor today, although he was not allowed to do it! I wanted to buy the actual (current) version of the lens, but it was out of stock and will not be ordered any more because of the new version."
- "I was speaking with a Nikon person in the know today about the D90. We chatted about it in general and he/she mentioned there would be a noise improvement over the D300. A year of playing with the Expeed processor makes sense. Anyway, I asked about lenses and he/she said to his/her knowledge there would be no 50mm or 80-400mm refreshes released this year. Sorry to burst the bubble. He/she also offered that he/she has not heard anything as such coming down the pipe."
Can anyone out there help us out?
