Nikon to announce D3 and D300 DSLRs tomorrow?

Ryan Block, @ryan

We don't know for sure what's going to be announced tomorrow, but our ears to the ground over Japan way have it that Nikon's loosing two new DSLRs tomorrow, its new highest-end D3 (presumably replacing the D2Xs) and lower-upper-end D300 (presumably replacing the D200; found specs below). Supposedly this is all going down tomorrow at 1PM JST in Tokyo, so you'll know for sure as soon as we do.


  • Full frame (FX) 12 megapixel Nikon CMOS
  • Live view LCD
  • 9fps in FF mode, 11fps in HSC mode (at 1.5 crop factor / DX size)
  • ISO 200 - 6400 with LO (ISO 100 equivalent), H1 and H2 (ISO 12800 / 25600, respectively)
  • 51 point autofocus system (15 cross sensor)

  • DX format 12 megapixel CMOS (supposedly possibly the same as the D2X)
  • Live view LCD
  • 6fps, up to 8fps with power grip (no HSC mode)
  • ISO 200 - 3200 with LO (ISO 100 equivalent), H1 (ISO 6400)
  • 51 point autofocus system (15 cross sensor)

And five new rumored lenses: AF-S 14-24/2.8 G, AF-S 24-70/2.8 G, AF-S VR 400/2.8 G, AF-S VR 500/4 G, AF-S VR 600/4 G.
