The word from Europe is that Nikon is planing a press event in at least one European country during the week of August 16th-20th, 2010. We can eliminate Monday and Friday, since those are not preferred days for new product announcements, which leaves us with August 17th, 18th and 19th as a potential announcement dates. I do not know […]
