On September 21, 2011, Nikon launched the Nikon One mirror-less camera system, consisting of 2 cameras and 4 lenses, one speedlight, a gps device and compatibility with the ML-L3 IR wireless remote control and the ME-1 stereo microphone, both already used in its DSLR line. The cameras - baptized J1 and V1 - are expected in stores around October 20, priced at $ 650 and $ 900 respectively, a ESP which includes the new One Nikkor 10-30 mm f/3.5-5.6 VR standard lens (27-81 mm equivalent).

Yup, I’ve been off of the radar for quite a while. We spent most of September in Amsterdam, to meet my first grandchild, hook up with the family and do tourist–stuff. I also went to the Photokina in Cologne, held both the new Nikon D7000 and Pentax 645D while I also bought some gear. So: I have a lot to talk about.
With 2010 recently started, and many of us awaiting at least one important Nikon launch this year, I’m looking back on a decade that has seen jaw-dropping advancements in photography hardware.
Nikon have just launched the long awaited D3S professional FX camera. As the D3, it is equipped with Nikon's 12.1 effective Mp. CMOS sensor, but with an extended standard ISO range of 12.800 and an ISO-max of 102.400.
Today, Nikon launched their long awaited D3000 entry level and D300s semi professional cameras. I resume the specs of both cameras, as taken from their respective US product brochures.
My Nikon wishlist: D700+MB-D10, AF-S 14-24 mm f/2.8G, AF-S 55-200 mm. f/4-5.6G and Sandisk Ducati 4 Gb. CF plus firewire card reader.
My Nikon cameras, past, present and future. Some facts and some speculation.
