  • Why would you pre-order something like this? It will be widely available once released and probably discounted within days of it becoming available.

      desperate times call for desperate measures?

    • Allen_Wentz

      To claim part of the class action lawsuit against Nikon for selling a SnapBridge product while SnapBridge remains still a fantasy for iOS?

    • ZoetMB

      I agree about it being unnecessary to pre-order, but not because it’s going to be discounted in the U.S. Nikon controls prices (in the U.S.) and it will not be discounted beyond the usual $3 below list price level. By the time we get to the holiday buying season in starting in about 10 weeks, maybe then it will be discounted.

    hi admin,

  • scott800

    Paving the way for the 4K capable D750-S! Come on photokina i believe in you!

    • Eric Calabros

      Not gonna happen. People are waiting for a mirrorless bomb.

  • TylerChappell

    Wait, NO EXTERNAL MIC JACK?! That’s a relatively stupid downgrade from the D3300 and D3200. That means you can’t do any serious video work with this camera unless you’re only taking video with no sound at all.
    With snapbridge and its impressively light weight, Nikon basically dropped the ball on an opportunity to make this DSLR an excellent portable choice for vloggers.
    There’s little reason to buy this over a D3300, D5300, or D5500.

    • Indik

      There were zero reasons to buy a DSLR with fixed screen for vlogging anyway.

      • Now this, this is very very true. Man I hate vlogging with my D750 now even, too!

    • Or, recording externally and syncing later. That’s what I usually do. Just turn the in-camera audio volume up to 20, and use something like PluralEyes or just sync it manually. Only takes a few seconds per clip.

    Why would anyone want non VR 70-300 … and for just 50$ price difference …
    Maybe 18-55 non VR does has some sense as a cheapest kit option, it should be lighter than any other lens and for video VR is not usable, but not outside the kit, nobody is buying 18-55 lenses and it is the most available second hand glass and sells for nothing …
    Nikon should be far better of by offering AF-P 18-70 VR lens as more expensive option because most people considering DSLR are also considering superzooms and actually want more lens range …
    Seams to me that following line up would be much better:
    D3400 + AF-P 18-55 for 600$
    D3400 + AF-P 18-70 VR for 700$
    D3400 + AF-P 18-70 VR + AF-P 70-300 VR for 1100$

    By the way D3400 is a cheap camera and is using cheaper Expeed 4 processor so no 4K is expected …

      In some markets, non VR lens are put into bundles because of their lower price. The consumer does not understand the difference just the price point.

    • true

      I think nikon is just too greedy.. why separate the userbase even more. I bet a non-vr owner will eventually be pissed when he wants that VR, and the resale value of non-vr version is also lower because nobody will buy non-vr.

  • I agree with the folk who say this should have just been a 2-3 lens announcement. My personal vote is to just do VR in both lenses, and let the Nikon reputation for sharpness speak for itself when buyers are comparing such lenses against “junk” like the Sony 16-50 E kit lens…

    I’m wondering if these new lenses are still using a mechanical aperture? If so, that’d be a huge bummer. Nikon needs to get all their lenses “E” ASAP.
