New Nikon Coolpix cameras announcement before the CP+ show in Japan is guaranteed. There is a high probability that the Nikon D800 will be released as well, but I am not 100% sure yet. The website digicame-info reports that the D800 without the AA filter will cost around ¥300,000 in Japan (around $3,900) and will start shipping in mid-March 2012. The price of the D800 version with the AA filter is reported to be around $3000.
It will be a bonus if any of the lenses mentioned in this post gets introduced next month. Besides those products, I do not expect any other surprises in the next 30-60 days. I believe the D300s replacement is at least few months away and it will not be announced for the CP+ show in Japan.
Here are some crazy rumors I received recently - I have no reason to believe any of them, at least not at that point of time:
- Nikon full frame 4k video camera with a F mount
- New video light accessory that will be launched with the D800
- Nikon 3D camera that will be a part of the Nikon 1 system
- Nikon AF Reflex Nikkor 800mm f/8 ED VR lens - this may actually materialize for Photokina
