Nikon at PMA 2009 (recap)

PMA starts in a week. For our not-so-regular readers, here is a recap of the PMA Nikon rumors:

  • D400: the one thing we know for sure is that the D400 will be released by July 2009 - this is when a Nikon D400 book will be available in Germany (the book was confirmed by multiple sites in Europe).
  • New entry level Nikon DLSR - it should be similar to the D90 but without the built-in AF motor and the top LCD screen (Nikon D40 is now officially discontinued and Nikon has to release a successor):
  • New Nikon flash SB-700. The SB-400 will be discontinued, since the new entry level camera will have something similar buitd-in. If this is true, it will leave Nikon with 2 flash models: SB-700 and SB-900 (and of course the close-up and commander models), which makes complete sense.
  • Lenses? That's always the tough one and I have nothing worth reporting. We should know more in the next few days. I expect something to be announced on Monday, March 2nd (personal opinion only).

Nikon Corp. President Michio Kariya was named to PMA Hall of Fame - I hope this will be worth it and he will have something good to show us...
