Nikon Announces D3 and D300
It's official. Nikon's long awaited announcement of significant developments in their DSLR line-up has been confirmed at a press conference in Japan. The new cameras will be the new 12.1 effective megapixel Nikon D3 featuring an FX-format CMOS sensor, measuring 23.9 x 36mm (nearly identical to the size of 35mm film) and the DX-format 12.3 effective megapixel Nikon D300.
Not satisfied with just the release of the two new DSLR's, Nikon also introduced two high-speed lenses: the AF-S NIKKOR 14-24mm f/2.8G ED and the AF-S NIKKOR 24-70mm f/2.8G ED, designed for use with either of Nikon's FX and DX format digital SLR cameras.
They also unveiled three new Super-Telephoto lenses featuring Nikon's VR II Vibration Reduction technology: AF-S NIKKOR 400mm f/2.8G ED VR, AF-S NIKKOR 500mm f/4G ED VR, and AF-S NIKKOR 600mm f/4G ED VR.
