Nikon D5000 RIP (officially discontinued by Nikon)

Nikon Japan has a listing of all discontinued Nikon products. The latest addition? Nikon D5000: The next candidate for this list is the Nikon D90 (probably in a matter of weeks, maybe even days).

No surprise here, since a new Nikkor 24-120 f/4 ED VR N lens is expected to be released next week. The old 24-120mm lens had multiple negative reviews over the past few years (the lens […]
