There were lots of teasers and rumors in the last few weeks and the official announcement should be released by tomorrow (November 5). There's even a Facebook fan page already!
Yes Nikon seems ready to ride the "retro camera" movement (pioneered so successfully by Fuji) with its new Df DSLR. While the price seems high ($2,750US for body only), we think there will be strong demand for this camera and it should do well in the marketplace. For that price you also get a 16MP D4 sensor, Expeed 3 processing, and a choice of black or silver. Should be built like a tank too. Still waiting for the full specs. Right on Nikon!
Nikon just announced a brand new high-end prime lens, the AF-S 58mm f/1.4G. Touted as a successor to the famous 58mm f/1.2 Noct lens, this new lens is one-half stop slower but promises to deliver much better sharpness, bokeh quality and coma correction (among other improvements), even wide open. It's not cheap at $1,699US, but should offer outstanding low-light capability and performance among the best NIkkor lenses available.
Nikon is running a new short video contest (less than 3 minutes) for videos posted via YouTube or Vimeo. Videos can be shot on any type of equipment. Top prize is a Nikon D4 based video kit with 6 lenses and accessories worth $17,000!
