Nikon rumors: what’s next

Nikon Rumors
This is an updated list on what to expect from Nikon in the next few months based on my previous post:

Nikon D5300

→ Coming soon, most likely to be announced at the CES show in early January. Rumored specifications:

  • 24MP
  • 39 AF points
  • EXPEED 4 (new)
  • Built-in Wi-Fi (new)
  • Built-in GPS (new)

Nikon D4x or similar

→ I think the release of the D610 will postpone tha plans for another full frame pro body. Nikon recently announced that they will concentrate on entry level models. There is still a possibility for a full frame pro body in early 2014 right before the Winter Olympics. I have no reliable intel on a potential release date or specifications.


→ I only have information for two new lenses: Nikkor AF-S 300mm f/4G VR lens and a new 16mm fisheye lens. There is also a very good chance for a new Nikon TC-14E III teleconverter and/or another tele lens to be announced before the Olympics.

Nikon D610

→ Already announced.

Underwater camera

→ Already announced, see detailed coverage here.


→ There is still no word on Nikon D400.

→ I have not received any tips on that, but Aptina's VP mentioned that a new compact camera with 1" sensor is expected to be announced at the beginning of next year by one of "their current customers".

I will be back online with regular coverage on Monday.
