Some interesting information came in today - basically more details on the already existing rumors:
- The Nikon D90 replacement will probably be called Nikon D95.
- Magnesium body. Previous reports indicated that parts of the body will be aluminium. My guess here is that the body will be magnesium-alloy, just like the D300s.
- 16MP sensor (expected)
- 1080 HD video.
- 6 fps (FYI: Nikon D90 does 4.5fps, the D300s - 7fps). The initial report was for 8fps. Let's just say it will be somewhere between 6-8fps.
- 39 AF points.
- Price: $1199 for body only.
No idea about a potential announcement date for the D95 (maybe also in August?).
Ok, now the rest of the rumors - Nikon Coolpix P7000 will be the new top-of-the-line point and shoot camera from Nikon, a.k.a. "the G11 killer" (I know, the Canon G12 will be coming in September). It will have a larger sensor (don't know how large) and 8fps continuous shooting(!).
Another tip came in for the 28-300mm full frame zoom lens (initially reported as 18-200 FX zoom).
The Nikon D3100 will be 14MP, the rest of the specs should be right.
The remaining items covered in the my previous "Recap" post seems to be correct.
