Nikon announcements next week

According to Nikon Rumors, Nikon will be making an announcement next week.

If this is so then the most likely announcement will be the f1.8 AF-S 50mm lens that briefly appeared on the Nikon website last week:

Hopefully this won’t have the same focus-speed issues of its more expensive brother the f1.4.

The question on everybody’s mind is what else might be announced at the same time? Could it be the:

  • D700 replacement (D700s, D800) – this is the oldest camera in Nikon’s current line-up and needs an update.
  • D300s replacement (D400) – needs a major upadate to differentiate this from the D7000.
  • D3S replacement (D4) – not likely.

Whatever the answer is, we’ll see next week, put April 27th in your diaries.
