    New Lenses and Camera Released

    The rumors have now been fufilled.

    One new DX lens:

    Which will probably form the kit replacement for the 55-200mm.

    3 new FX lenses:

    So looks like Nikon is opening up the F4 range for FX users as budget glass, and offering them a superzoom. The only one of these that will interest most people using FX for other than casual purposes is the 85 AF-S F1.4G though it is missing the VR that it really should have.

    And finally, the new body to the range:

    Nikon Corporation is pleased to announce the release of the Nikon D3100, an entry level Nikon DX-format digital-SLR camera. The camera is equipped with a new CMOS image sensor developed by Nikon and a new image-processing engine that enable capture of high-definition images exhibiting superior image quality, and a Guide mode that allows users to capture images just as they intended.

    Interesting to note, the sensor is a 14 MP, which means that we have the amusing situation of the entry level camera exceeding all the other cameras in the range minus the D3X in MP, and Max ISO is 3200. New battery is also part of the kit, video comes as standard, 3FPS shoot rate and SD card is the main memory.

    i already have the AF-D 85mm but the reversable bayonet hood on the AF-S 85mm is almost worth the upgrade!
    Thanks,
    Nam
