With the D700 now being fazed-out, semi-pros and advanced amateurs are left with two full-frame cameras to choose from in Nikon’s mid-range price bracket, the D800E and D800 costing $ 3.300 and $ 3.000 respectively, while the D600 will set you back $ 2.100, a premium of $ 400 over the aging D300S APS-C camera. Even in the absence of independent tests of the D600, it is interesting to compare it against the D800, to figure out how much more camera $ 900 buys us, and ask ourselves if it is worth spending the roughly 50% extra.
Today, April 19, Nikon launched its new, “entry-level” D3200 camera, a dedicated wireless mobile adapter and the full-frame 28 mm f/1.8G wide angle lens. The D3200 is Nikon’s third camera launch in 2012 – after the D4 and D800/800E – and most likely the penultimate, short of the D300S replacement.

This has definitely not been a good year for Nikon, nor for most other Japanese international companies, for that matter. The devastating March 11 Tōhoku earthquake and tsunami followed by severe flooding in Thailand in November 2011 must – even if the company has been extremely careful in its damage assessments – have servery affected normal operations. This is what Nikon did in 2011, in spite of these mayor setbacks...

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).
