Here are some of the third party Nikon software solutions I have covered over the years. I believe most (if not all) of them are based on Nikon's SDK. Almost all of them are free:
Nikon Camera Control software (tethering, remote camera control and more)
DigiCamControl (open source tethering software)
Nikontrol 3K (remote control for PC)
DxOMark tested the Nikon 1 J5 mirrorless camera. This is their conclusion:
I believe this is a new low price for a grey market Nikon D810 DSLR camera - currently listed on eBay for $2,099.99. Limited quantities available (186 sold so far), free shipping, 30 days return policy, 1 year store warranty.
It seems that Nikon quietly increased the prices of many (all?) Nikkor lenses in the US at the end of June - here are few examples sent by a reader who actually tracks the prices over time (based on B&H listings):
Nikkor AF line:
Nikkor AF-S line:
- 17-35mm f/2.8: $1,759 to $1,952
- 200-400mm f/4: $6,299 to $6,997
- 24mm f/1.4: $1,929 to $2,197
- 35mm f/1.4: $1,619 to $1,797
- 50mm f/1.4: $419 to $482
- 85mm f/1.4: $1,599 to $1,697
- 200mm f/2: $5,800 to $5,997
- 300mm f/2.8: $5,719 to $5,897
Nikkor DX line:
The Czech blog nikonblog.cz (I believe this is an official Nikon website) published their review of the Nikkor AF-S DX 16-80mm f/2.8-4E ED VR lens ($1,066.95) which includes full sized JPEG and RAW files available for download.
Form the above pictures you can also see the new lens hood design I reported about last month.
First a quick note: I will be traveling in the next 2 weeks and will have limited Internet service. Some email responses and posts might be slightly delayed.

Here are the latest Nikon deals for this week - some of the highlights are: grey market D4s for $3,999 (new low price), D750 for $1,499 and a refurbished Nikon 24-70mm f/2.8G lens for $1,499 ($500 off) - maybe Nikon already started to clear their inventory in order to make space for the new version:
