It's been already more than five years since I wrote this article (in Spanish) on autofocus and although in many areas the innovation of DSLR’s has slowed down some, autofocus systems are still making unimagined jumps. In this article we review the 51-point system, which was introduced in late 2007 in the Nikon D3, D300 and the evolved version of which is used in the D7100, D810 and D4S (Advanced Multi-CAM 3500).
With the launch of the D610 Nikon replaces the D600 after a mere 13 months, allegedly to finally solve the oil and dust problem that has been plaguing the latter virtually since its introduction. The new camera’s “suggested” retail price of $ 2.000 is slightly inferior to its predecessor, which launched on September 13, 2012 with a SRP of $ 2.100.

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).
Today (05-04-2011), Nikon launched the new D5100, which replaces the D5000.Among its most interesting specs are the "swing-out" 3 in. 921 K-dot monitor, 16,2 Mp. CMOS sensor, standard ISO from 100 - 6.400 (extendible to 25.600) and 1080p full-HD movie mode with continuous AF.
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.
Again, as predicted by Nikon Rumors, today Nikon launched its new entry level D3100 DSLR with almost exactly the same core specs as rumored.The surprise for me, however, is that the D3100 includes GPS support, a novelty in entry level DSLR's and a feature which is - coincidentally - supported in the new Nikon View NX2 software with excellent Google Maps integration.
