Nikon TC-14E II teleconverter listed as discontinued again

After Nikon Sweden listed the TC-14E II teleconverter as discontinued few weeks ago, we now have a major retailer (DigitalRev) who also marked the 14E II teleconverter as discontinued. With the upcoming Winter Olympics in Sochi (February 2014), I will not be surprised if this TC and the Nikkor 300mm f/4 lens get updated.

Nikon TC-14E II teleconverter listed as discontinued

A reader alerted me that the Nikon TC-14E II teleconverter is listed as discontinued at the official Nikon Sweden online store (utgången means discontinued). This could just be a mistake or a local decision, but it could also be an indication that Nikon is planning to refresh their teleconverter(s) for the Winter Olympics in Sochi (February 2014). Coincidentally, […]

Nikon D7000 listed as discontinued in Australian retailer

The retailer Bing Lee, who has a significant presence in Australia, lists the Nikon D7000 as “discontinued and no longer available for sale” on their website. I expect more stores to start marking the D7000 as discontinued in the upcoming weeks/months as we get closer to its replacement. The D7000 is currently on sale with a $300 instant […]

Nikon AF Fisheye-Nikkor 16mm f/2.8D lens listed as “end of life”

Two Romanian stores (fotohobbyshop and f64) have listed the AF Fisheye-Nikkor 16mm f/2.8D lens as “end of life”. The lens is still listed as current on Nikon USA website. Romanian stores have been accurately publishing information on soon-to-be-discontinued products in the past (Nikon D3x and D3s).

Nikon SB-400 Speedlight discontinued

The retail chain Mediamarkt in Germany currently has the Nikon SB-400 Speedlight listed as discontinued in their inventory system. In the past four years Nikon did update the SB-600 (with the SB-700) and SB-800 (updated twice already with the SB-900 and SB-910), but the SB-400 remained untouched since its introduction back in 2006. There is a very good chance that […]

Nikon D5100 next to be discontinued?

Few days ago Nikon Germany sent out an email to retailers stating that the Nikon D5100 is no longer available for order. The exact word used was “abkündigung” which translates to “discontinuation”. The D5100 was announced on April 5th, 2011. FYI: the D3100 was announced in August 2010 and was already replaced by the D3200 in April this […]
