Nikon D5200 Coming Soon

Rumors are heating up for yet another DSLR reveal from Nikon before 2012 is over.  Nikon Rumors points to the aging D5100 set for replacement by a D5200 that will sport a 24MP sensor.

Nikon D5200 Rumored Specs

  • 24MP DX-format CMOS sensor
  • EXPEED 3 image processor (same was Nikon D3200)
  • ISO 100-6400 (expandable to ISO 25,600)
  • 2,016 RGB metering sensor
  • 5 fps continuous shooting speed
  • 3-inch vari-angle LCD at 921k-dot resolution

According to the rumors, the Nikon D5200 should hit within the next month or so.  Stay tuned for the latest.

Nikon 70-200mm f/4 VR Lens Coming Next Week?

The Nikon version of the famous 70-200mm f/4L IS from Canon is expected to arrive next week – just in time for PhotoPlus 2012.  Nikon Rumors received word that the lens will be the first to feature Nikon’s next-gen VR system.

Given that the Canon equivalent runs $1350 at retail, I’d say that would be a good starting point to look toward for the Nikon lens – possibly up to $1400 or $1500.

Stay tuned for all the news from PhotoPlus next week.

Nikon D600 Specs and Image Leak

More details on the upcoming Nikon D600 have leaked out further confirming the 24.3MP FX format DSLR with 1080/24p HD video capture.  The specs indicate that it will carry several limitations as a low-end full frame camera.  Notably, the D600 is limited by a max shutter speed of 1/4000s, 1/200s sync-speed and a sensitivity range of ISO 100-6400.  (The D7000 reaches up to 1/8000s shutter speed, while the D3200 and D5100 also max out at 1/4000s.)

The D600 will also be compatible with the new WU-1b wireless mobile adapter for connecting it with iOS and Android smartphones and tablets – just like the WU-1a for the Nikon D3200.

Nikon Press Conference on Sept. 13 – Full Frame D600 Expected

Nikon D600

A forum poster at DPR passed along word that they received an invite for a Nikon product launch in Dubai on September 13.  The teaser from Nikon reads, “Nikon is delighted to invite you to a showcase event celebrating the launch of the latest additions to its DSLR range.”

Sounds like the oft-rumored, 24MP full frame Nikon D600 could be launching next week as an entry-level alternative to the D800.  And if the sub-$2000 price point becomes a reality, there could be a lot of happy Nikonians this holiday season.
