  • David Johnson

    I have read the entire Nikon announcement. Seems like this one is going to be very good!! I also want to point out to NR readers that it seems to me Nikon DOES listen for serious photographer input!!

  • Nikon Canada is showing the D3000

  • turbo v6 camaro

    18-200 – 72mm and lock to stop the creep i tink thats it

  • 720p? Ugh.
    Hello, 5dMarkII

  • And the D300s not marked as new though.

  • bof

    In addition to compatibility with more than 60 NIKKOR lenses and a broad array of system accessories, the D300S will also perform well with the recently announced AF-S NIKKOR 70-200mm f/2.8 VR and the AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-200mm f/3.5-5.6 VR lens.

  • alex
  • ryan

    fuckin spot on NR…. great work

  • Patrick has a preview.
    US$1,800 MSRP

  • alphanikonrex

    WOW, the ESP of the D300 and the D300S are the exact same—$1799. How does Nikon expect to pull that off?

  • alphanikonrex

    Gosh, the new 70-200 doesn’t have internal focusing!

  • funny

    ha, nice job admin. where are all the doubters gone. “nikon would never update tat lens bla bla bla”.

  • MW


  • nilbert

    wha, the price of the new 70-200 is … 2430 euros? yow! what gives.

    Also not available til november, boourns!!

    AND ALSO, the old one looks a lot sexier!!! like 10 times cooler looking. imho

  • Gra

    Just this very second hits Nikon Australia’s website, both cams, both lenses, 70 – 200 may be about 30 days away in Aus…(I’ve ordered) and up to about AU$400 more

  • Gra

    Looks like new collar on the 70 – 200 also…

    That little spring clip better not be plastic…I too prefer the look of the old over the new…I might have to glue on my own brass plate…

  • Steven

    There’s 2 mistakes I found on the dpreview pages:
    The d3000 is said to have a CCD says the text but the chart says it has a CMOS.
    The D300 is said to shoot 7fps in the text but spec chart says 6.

    I am really disappointed about the 720p only…
