→ The Nikon D750 seems to be out of stock in many stores in Germany and the current wait time is 1-2 months. Really strange development on one of the best selling Nikon cameras (maybe a replacement is coming soon?).
→ New low price for the Nikon D810 (gray market): $1,899.
→ Another strange development - two days ago Nikon Japan introduced a new D5300 kit with the new AF-P 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G VR lens (the D5300 was announced in 2013 and is still available for sale).
→ Nikon received the "iF Design Award 2017" for five products.
Nikon released ViewNX-i version 1.2.5 for Mac that addresses the image corruption issue when using Nikon Transfer 2 with macOS Sierra (previously reported here):
The Japanese website Nokishita reported on Twitter that Nikon will soon announce a new EN-EL18b battery. It is not clear which existing or new cameras will be compatible with this new battery, but the current EN-EL18a model is used in the top-of-the-line Nikon D5, D4s and D4 DSLRs.
Here is one possible scenario for the Nikon D810 replacement: a new D820 with a 46MP sensor. This is the only interesting rumor I heard recently worth sharing online. I am still not 100% confident with that information since it is coming from a single source. Hopefully this blog post will trigger some more tips and additional info on what's coming next from Nikon.
