So what do you want from Nikon ?

  1. I'm just curious , not being argumentative :smile:
    There a lot of people ' bored with Nikon's new releases ' .
    While I am neither excited nor bored I was wondering what the 'bored' people would like to see with Nikon's next announcements [ realistically !] .

    An AF 35 1.4 and that, hopefully, I'll be able to sell my AIS 35 1.4 when it is out. I wouldn't mind a fast 28 as well.

    I want a projector in my D200, just like the new coolpix has! (y)
  7. Besides the 'lower pricing' already mentioned I pretty much have all I 'need' at the moment . But I wouldn't mind an entry level high iso performer . Whether it's a full frame 'D10' or another 6 meg dx camera with D700 iso performance .
    Bring back the electronically switched sensor with 1/500th flash synch speed !
    perhaps with another electronically switched sensor they could install a high speed frame rate like the Casio EX-F1 - mirror lock-up and fire the sensor electronically at 30 fps !

    1. A D40 replacement for around the same money.

    2. Availability.

    I have only one true want -- a new 135 2.
    VR and DC not necessary.
    Just make it sharp wide open and give it very fast AF.
    In other words, make it like Canon's 135 2.

    For my intended purpose, the 200vr was too large physically and long focally, the 135DC's AF was a little too slow, and the f/2.8 70/80-200 zooms are just a little too slow aperturewise.

    I thought that was the intended market for the D3000...

    A D3 with one upgrade. True 16 bit color from the sensor, ala medium format backs. That would make a great camera even better. :biggrin:

    +1 or a 135 F4 with VR and I agree with Tosh requirements.

    Lower pricing
    Dk-17 eyecups as standard
    Faster low light AF
    Smarter auto ISO

    @ Bob,

    The D3000 is £429 here, that's body only, £500 with the kit lens. The D40 was only £250 including the 18-55 kit lens.

    I was about to buy one last month for my Daughter and it was only then I found out it was no longer available.

    I've no doubt the D3000 is a better camera but for someone like my Daughter who may not even get heavily into photography I wouldn't what to spend £500 just to start her off.

    I hope to see a D1000/D2000 which will just be a slight update of the D40 for total DSLR beginners.
  14. A pro level DX camera - with af and noise similar to the D700 and D3.
  15. like most mentioned lower pricing, or maybe bring back the triple rebates promotion:smile:

    I would love to get the new 70-200, only because I feel it may be better on FX and nano coating, and of course 4 stop VR. But i cant see selling mine for the newer, especially for the $$$ they want.

    I would like to see a series of F/4 zooms ie: 24-105 w/VR and nano coating, maybe some faster primes or updated primes like the 85/1.4, 135/2, or a 35/1.4.

    A body designed around the F3 HP.
    35mm sensor, fully manual with the option of AF-S powered by an add on pack, like the old Power winders. (In AF - just like the D40/50/60)
    Basic AF sensor, not for sports.

    Nothing fancy in frame rate, about 2fps.

    D3x ISO range. 100 - 1600.

    Removable prism, compatible with older accessories, like wasit level finders.

    Target price: £1000
    Target market: The Nikon collector, film afficionados that would like a digital option and non-starving students that want to think about their shots.
  20. Keep improving high ISO in a DX body like the D300. As someone who shoots sports that is my single biggest wish.
