    Honestly, only compacts as a Fuji X10 will excite me now.
    f/2-2.8 zoom, 2/3″ sensor, those should be the minimum specs for any decent contender for “high-end compact” now.

    But what we all want, really, is an M9 with the 35mm f/2 ASPH…. small, amazing IQ…
    Damn you, expensive Leica!!

  • Alex

    YES 😀

  • Toby

    Thanks for the update, hopefully my AW100 is on the way.

  • AW100, semi interesting.
    P7100, not interesting at all. Might as well go micro 4/3.

  • SoftOnDemand

    I would get the aw100 for my girlfriend. She tends to always drop things. She even dropped her cell in the toilet bowl once! So I think that camera suits her best. He’ll she can leave and forget the aw100 in the freezer and it’ll still be fine

    • dino B

      are you trying to say that nikon coolpix are good e nuf for the toilet.

  • The invisible man

    20 more days before the “french photokina”, no leaks yet ?

    • I think everything that is going to be announced next week already leaked. I do not expect anything else.

      • AnoNemo

        Since not much is happening at NikonLand I was wondering whether you have a collection of manufacturers that make adapters for Nikon lenses to be used on different bodies.

        I think this would be useful since 1) basically it is almost impossible to buy any Nikon FF (even at MSRP … everyone is out of stock) and 2) many are thinking about using their lovely Nikon glasses on non-Nikon cameras such as the NEX-7. (Even I consider to give a try to that NEX-7)

  • paul

    Now let’s move on to the DSLR’s, please.

    • Jk

      Like we haven’t spent enough time talking about those. Lol

      • f/2.8

        Nikonrumors talks about all things Nikon. Go to NikonD#DSLRRumorsOnly and NikonD###DSLRRumorsOnly.

        Give the admin and us a break.

        • paul

          I could care less about people’s speculations of camera specifics, functionality, etc. I just want to hear that Nikon can now direct it’s efforts to this portion of their product line and finally get something out that we can use. It’s seems that all other areas have been covered recently.

    • Vandyu

      Umm. Wrong thread. What’s a DSLR? 🙂

  • Hoser

    Boring……….DSLR please before you lose anymore market share.
    D800 Please or even D400?

    • The invisible man

      If you’re waiting for the D400 that’s mean you don’t need a D800.
      Get a D7000/D5100

    • William Blake

      Probably will be called D500 for superstitious reasons.

    • The invisible man

      Go at Ken Rockwell website (what’s new) and you get the direct link and also a $30 rebate code !
      I just got one, if it’s as good as my Panasonic I return the Panasonic and save $300 !

      Ken R page :

      • The invisible man

        So you end up paying $109 and free “saver” shipping !

        • The invisible man

          sold out

  • yrsued

    I got my T&E AW100 a few days ago, will be testing it in full next week in Florida.

    • Looking forward for your feedback 🙂

    • The invisible man

      The best endurance test for the T&W AW100 would be having my kids (and my wife) using it for few hours !

  • chimphappyhour

    I’m interested in the AW100. Have a trip to Australia coming up so might be nice to have that around the water. Also need something that does movies. Hoping this turns out to be halfway decent. Just waiting on reviews.

    • I will have a guest review of the AW100 next week.

    • BartyL

      Don’t go thinking they’re shark or crocodile-proof!

      • chimphappyhour

        Ha! I live in the midwest of the US and know my limits. The only body of water that I get into any deeper than my shins is a swimming pool. And I always make sure I can see bottom no matter what the water is. :p

  • Shasta_d

    Doesn’t look like the camo version of the AW100 is for sale in the US? Are they afraid of the militia movement buying these cameras?

  • John Doe

    Why does every manufacturer have to push a GPS unit into these types of cameras.

    I dont want your GPS. You can shove it in your marketing departments peoples back hole.

    • The invisible man

      @John Doe
      I want GPS !
      I always expect from my camera to get Great Photo Snaps !
      And also I hate been lost in all the camera menus !
      So GPS is usefull for everyone !

  • Yawn, that AW camera doesn’t even have RAW capability. Sheesh!

    • Mock Kenwell

      There isn’t one tough cam on the market that DOES offer RAW. The image quality isn’t good enough. That’s NOT why you by a tough cam. You want to take your DSLR into the water? Drop it from 2M? These cameras have specific purposes. Jesus. The ignorance on this board can be palpable at times. Sheesh, indeed.

  • TheInconvenientRuth

    Scared of compacts everyone is…
    Bigger picture you do not see…


    Compacts lead to mirrorless
    Mirrorless leads to lenses
    Lenses lead to DSLRs


    • Mock Kenwell

      Size matters not.

  • The invisible man

    I miss my Minox 35mm GT-E

  • Muchachito Ehehe

    New lenses is all I ask for. When Nikon, when???

    • The invisible man

      300mm af-s f/4 VRII
      28-105 af-s/2.8 VRII
      200mm af-s f/2.8 VRII

  • Vandyu

    Santa has it in his toy sack.

  • broxibear

    Interesting pricing.
    The US price for the P7100 is $499 and here in the UK it’s £499 which is $788.

    • BartyL

      That’s the power of market-share for you. We constantly get screwed on price in Australia *cough*Adobe*cough*

    • Mock Kenwell

      That’s good. It saves you from making a big mistake by purchasing it.

  • Jim

    Another earthquake (6.6) hit Japan today so the D whatevers will be delayed more.

  • ronin

    Terrific! Can’t wait for the P7100 reviews. Hopefully this addresses what for me has been the real drawback of the P7000 I’ve taken everywhere the last year- the lack of a flipping screen.

    This is smaller than the Fuji X10 with a greater lens reach, yet maintaining a zooming optical viewfinder. All in all looking forward to a great package.
