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.

Nikon Rumors picked up word that a new AF-S 800mm f/5.6 VR Lens should arrive in September around the time of Photokina 2012. The longest current lens in Nikon’s line up is the 600mm f/4G ED VR AF lens. Given that this lens is priced at $9800, I would expect to see the 800mm lens in the same $14k ballpark as Canon’s 800mm f/5.6L.
Some leaked photos of the upcoming Nikon D600 have surfaced online at a Chinese forum. The D600 is rumored to be a 24MP FX-format DSLR that will be situated at a much lower price point than the higher-end D800.

Amidst a flurry of recent rumors about a Nikon D600 and new lenses, the rumor mill has been relatively quiet about a replacement for the Nikon D300s. However, Mansurovs has posted a detailed spec list attached to a rumored Photokina 2012 announcement for the Nikon D400 – sporting a 24MP APS-C sensor and a $1799 price tag.
Check out the spec list below and let us know your thoughts about such an APS-C pro shooter in the comment section at the bottom of the page.

Recent leaks and rumors suggest Nikon is planning to launch a pair of new lenses soon – the AF-S 24-85mm f/3.5-4.5G ED VR and the AF-S DX 18-300mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR.
The 24-85mm lens is rumored to be an affordable full frame lens (possibly a kit lens?) to accompany the rumored Nikon D600. And the 18-300mm is an all-purpose DX lens for cameras like the Nikon D7000.
The lenses are rumored to be available by the end of June, which (if correct) puts an announcement any day now.

Nikon Rumors has posted an update list of specifications for the rumored-to-be-coming-soon, full frame Nikon D600. Notably, Nikon Rumors seems rather confident that the previously rumored absence of an AF motor is not true and that the D600 will, indeed, feature a built-in AF motor for legacy Nikon AF lenses.
The revised Nikon D600 spec list is as follows: [click to continue…]
