There’s been some breaking news tonight! Rumors of a July 1st Announcement from Nikon have been floating around the back alleys of the World Wide Web for some time now. Well…it’s already July 1st in Europe! Sure enough, sites in countries like France, Germany, and Norway have made it official. The D700 will be Nikon’s second FX Sensor body, presumably wedging the same 12mp sensor from the D3 into a smaller pro-sumer body. In addition, the SB900 was announced with limited specs. But my rusty french was able to decipher improvements in power, rotation (180 degrees left AND right), and zoom…now capable of covering a range from 17-200mm and automatically switching between DX and FX sensor bodies. Last but not least is the final piece of the updated Perspective Control lenses. The 45mm and 85mm PC-E Micro Nikkor lenses join the 24mm announced earlier this year to complete the series. Just a little techie update for those who are interested before I head off to slumber.
UPDATE: Nikon USA made all the official announcements in English this morning.
