The excellent, entry-level Nikon D3100 now comes in red. It should start shipping in the US and Europe on September 22.
Check out my earlier Nikon D3100 review.
While August was a busy month for camera announcements, it’s looking more and more like September is going to give it a run for its money.

A recently published patent application reveals a Nikon lens with a focal length of 10-100mm, which works out to a perfect 27-270mm equivalent focal range for Nikon’s rumored 2.7x-crop mirrorless camera.
Technically, the application calls for a 10.3-97mm focal range at f/4.7-6.1, which should round out to a lens marketed at 10-100mm f/4.5-5.6 range when/if it comes out.
For what seems like a consumer-minded camera system with its smaller-than-APS-C format sensor, a 10x superzoom is almost a requirement. It should be much smaller than what we typically see on DSLRs, particularly since Nikon has done such a good job at putting a big zoom range in its recent Coolpix cameras.
For those of you who want some light weekend reading, you can check out the lens patent application here.
