Nikon France website is currently down and has been down for a while. Updates for next week maybe? If you have followed NR in the past you probably know that there is a certain pattern before an official announcement and bringing the website down for maintenance is part of it (it is beyond me why they cannot do this without bringing the site down).
UPDATE: Here are some examples of Nikon websites being down shortly before an official announcement:
- August 26th, 2008 - few hours later the Nikon D90 was announced
- September 21st, 2008 - the 50mm 1.4 lens was announced on September 22nd
- November 27th, 2008 - December 1st the D3x was announced
- April 11th, 2009 - on April 14th the D5000 was announced
