What to expect from Nikon in the next few months

Nikon Rumors
The next big wave of Nikon announcements will happen in January/February 2015 for the CES/CP+ shows. There is also the PhotoPlus show at the end of this month, but I doubt Nikon will release any new products one month after Photokina. As of today, I expect the following products to be announced in the next few months:

New "high-end" Nikon Coolpix camera(s) with 1" sensor

I have been reporting about a new Coolpix camera with 1" sensor for few months now. I am not sure about the exact name - it could be P1000, P8000 or P700. There could be more than one new camera with 1" sensor. Here are the rumored specifications:

  • The new camera will most likely use a new 1" Aptina sensor (first Coolpix with 1" sensor)
  • At least Expeed 3 imaging processor (Expeed 4 is also a possibility)
  • Magnesium body
  • Comfortable grip similar to the Nikon P5100 and  P6000 models
  • 24- 120mm or 24-80mm equivalent fast lens (f/2, maybe even f/1.8) with 3 ED and 1 ASP glass elements
  • 3.0" or 3.5" LCD screen
  • P A S M mode
  • Built-in GPS with Google maps
  • Built-in Wi-Fi
  • Price: under $1,000

New Nikon DX DSLR

There must be a new Nikon DX DSLR camera - D7200 or D9300 (especially after Canon announced the EOS 7D Mark II). I have not received info on a new DX body for months - it seems that everything is put on hold.

Nikon 1 lenses

I also expect a new Nikon 1 lens roadmap to be announced soon. Nikon has introduced all but one of the 1 Nikkor prototype lenses that were on display once the system was first introduced. The missing lens is the macro 1 Nikkor:

Nikkor lenses

  • A new tele lens - maybe a Nikkor AF-S 300mm f/4G VR or something to replace the already discontinued Micro-Nikkor 200mm f/4D IF-ED.
  • Nikon could respond to the Sigma 18-35mm f/1.8 DC HSM lens with a new fast DX zoom lens. The announcement could happen with the introduction of the next DX DSLR.
