Two New Nikon FX bodies will be announced by the end of August, According to a Nikon Rumor Reader, a recent Nikon-authorized dealer event revealed some details about the Nikon D700 and D3s replacements.
Now, as you can imagine, everybody asked for the D700 and D3 replacement schedule. Here is what the Nikon rep said: “Two new FX bodies will be announced by the end of August. Availability in Fall.” Even though the rep wasn’t explicit about which current cameras are going to be replaced, it was quite clear they were talking about “old body designs” (guess D700 and D3). Nevertheless, the two FX cameras will be aimed at different customers who have different needs: one camera for “expert” photographers, the other for “pro” photographers. Technical spec and form factors will be significantly different as well.
So the finally the two new FX format bodies coming on end of Aug 2011 will have significantly different specs, with one aimed at pro photographers and the other for experts.
In the event Nikon rep also explained that after Japanese earthquake on March 11, New production plant in Malaysia was opened up with most machines and employees moved there. The facility is now producing camera and lenses.
