Bob Atkins has posted a blog on what appears to be the new Nikon DX dSLR.
Essentially the main features are:
To my mind, this is a much more sensible upgrade path than Canon’s 50D effort, but I guess only time will tell on this.
At last Nikon have an entry level digital SLR with features that I feel are critical – live preview for accurate manual focus when needed and a dust removal system, pity it still doesn’t have a CCD-shift image stabiliser as with Olympus models.
I am more looking forward to how Olympus will respond (hopefully maintain 10mp, improved noise, dynamic range, add HD movies with HDMI output, VGA LCD screen, 9 or 11 pt AF and 4-5 fps in their prosumer range), and perhaps more interestingly, how Canon responds to Nikon’s D700 with their much awaited 5D replacement.
