Nikon D7100 Coming This Week?

Nikon D7100 Rumors

Nikon has press conferences scheduled this week, which likely means some new camera announcements and the most likely camera being tossed around right now is a replacement for the Nikon D7000. Rumored specs on the new camera include a 24MP sensor, ISO 100-6400 and a form factor similar to its full frame brother – the D600.

Other rumors point to the possibility of a advanced Nikon Coolpix point and shoot camera – perhaps a Nikon P310 replacement that supports RAW image capture and WU-1a support for wireless image transfer. Or, a point and shoot with a 1″ sensor that would presumably compete head-to-head with the Sony RX100.

Whatever is coming, we should have official word and complete details in the next couple of days. Stay tuned.

  • 6 fps (11 fps is the maximum possible fps with the current shutter)
  • Few video improvements
  • Price should be few hundred dollars above the existing Nikon D4 (currently listed for $5996.95).
  • Announcement expected in fall of 2013

Nikon 18-35mm f/3.5-4.5G ED Full Frame Lens Coming This Month?

Current Nikkor 18-35mm f/3.5-4.5D ED-IF Lens

Nikon is rumored to be dropping a new full frame lens at the end of January at the CP+ show in Japan. The new Nikkor 18-35mm f/3.5-f.5G ED lens should be compatible with both FX and DX cameras and will weigh in as the lightest FX zoom in Nikon’s lineup at a mere 400g (or 14 ounces).

Other specs on the rumored lens include a 77mm filter thread with 12 elements in 8 groups. The lens should serve as a proper replacement for the existing 18-35mm f/3.5-4.5D ED lens.
