This is an updated list on what to expect from Nikon in the next few months based on my previous post:
→ Coming soon, most likely to be announced at the CES show in early January. Rumored specifications:
- 39 AF points
- EXPEED 4 (new)
- Built-in Wi-Fi (new)
- Built-in GPS (new)
→ I think the release of the D610 will postpone tha plans for another full frame pro body. Nikon recently announced that they will concentrate on entry level models. There is still a possibility for a full frame pro body in early 2014 right before the Winter Olympics. I have no reliable intel on a potential release date or specifications.
→ I only have information for two new lenses: Nikkor AF-S 300mm f/4G VR lens and a new 16mm fisheye lens. There is also a very good chance for a new Nikon TC-14E III teleconverter and/or another tele lens to be announced before the Olympics.
→ There is still no word on Nikon D400.
→ I have not received any tips on that, but Aptina's VP mentioned that a new compact camera with 1" sensor is expected to be announced at the beginning of next year by one of "their current customers".
I will be back online with regular coverage on Monday.
