Nikon announces new system beginning with two models
It’s been more than 60 years since a Nikon Camera first carried the designation “1” and now we have two more. Nikon announced on September 21 the first in a series of cameras featuring the new 1 NIKKOR lens system.
According to the Nikon USA Press release: “The Nikon J1 and V1 will be available throughout the United States beginning October 20th. The Nikon J1 camera with 10-30mm lens kit will be available at a suggested retail price of $649.95 (USD). The Nikon V1 camera with 10-30mm lens kit will be available for a suggested retail price of $899.95.”

A profusely illustrated Nikon 1 brochure is available for free download.
For preorder opportunities please check our Berger Bros Camera Forum. Brad and Lisa will be posting all information for preorders on newly announced Nikon cameras, lenses and accessories as soon as possible.
For a detailed look at the two new Nikon 1 system cameras and their accessories, take a look at Darrell Young's (DigitalDarrell) Café discussion. Once you have read his take on the news, tell us what you think in the open discussion thread.
Is this the long anticipated "big release" that has been marked by the big yellow and black countdown pointing to an early afternoon Eastern Standard USA time?
We have some members who are suspecting that announcement may be related to a new DSLR. Only time will tell.
