German magazine spills the beans about Nikon’s announcement next week

In the September edition of the German photo magazine "Foto Digital", which was sent to subscribers today, there is an article about the new Nikon D3100 and the four new lenses.

Nikon D3100 (updated):

  • 14 MP CMOS Sensor (23.2 x 15.5 mm)
  • Live View
  • 3 inch Display
  • 100 - 12800 ISO
  • ISO setting manual or automatic
  • 11 AF points
  • full HD Video (1920 x 1080)
  • price 650 €
  • new EXPEED2 processor
  • improved objects recognition for the AF control
  • improved in-camera menu
  • user can save picture profiles

And the 4 new lenses after the break:

  • Nikkor AF-S DX 55-300/4,5-5,6 G ED VR (ca. 420 €)
  • Nikkor AF-S 85/1,4 G with Nano coating (ca. 1650 €) - UPDATE: the new lens contains 10 lens elements in 9 groups (the old version has 9 elements in 8 groups)
  • Nikkor AF-S 24-120/4 G ED VR with Nano coating (ca. 1220 €)
  • Nikkor AF-S 28-300/3,5-5,6 G ED VR (ca. 1000 €) - UPDATE: it will contain 19 lens elements in 14 groups

Pictures coming soon. Everything is as previously expected. No big surprises, except that ISO range: 100-12800? Wow!

    Few are talking about the lenses.

    The 28-300 VR looks like a very versatile lens for a mid-range price (non DX) and costs less than half Canon’s counterpart. Expand with 14-24mm f/2.8 and you have some quality gear, even on a D3100 these lenses. Then, when you get a full frame body, add a 24-70mm f/2.8 and you’re all set.

    That’s how I see it 🙂 Anyone share the same idea?
