A lot of readers are still asking me about the Nikon D90 replacement and the P7000 announcements. I will just repeat some of the old information I already published online: the D90 replacement (not sure about the exact name yet) will be announced on/around September 15th together with a new Nikkor 200mm f/2 lens. I already reported some basic specs a month ago:
- Magnesium-alloy body
- 16MP sensor
- 1080 HD video
- Somewhere between 6-8 fps
- Improved ISO range: 100-25600*
- 39 AF points
- Price: $1199 for body only
Since the Nikon P7000 p&s camera was not announced yesterday with the rest of the Coolpix cameras, I am guessing that it will be announced in September with the D90 replacement. We may have the same scenario in September - one Coolpix announcement and few days later a DSLR and lens announcements.
I will repeat again, there is no sign of a full frame DSLR for Photokina.
* - Today some more details surfaced on the new Alpha cameras from Sony (specs | pics). You can see that the 16MP sensor has hi ISO of 25600. I already mentioned that the D90 replacement should have a better ISO compared to the 100-12800 ISO range of the D3100, so I assume this range will be 100-25600.
