Human friendly English translation ;-)

Following is what his source said.

Nikon will make an announcement on 8/23 1PM JST in Tokyo.

Two new DSLRs.


  • FX format (Full frame) 12Mpixel CMOS made by Nikon

  • 9 fps in FF mode, 11 fps in HSC mode

  • HSC is done at 1.5 crop factor (meaning DX size)

  • ISO 200 - 6400 with LO (iso100 equiv), H1 and H2 (iso 12800/25600 respectively)


  • DX format 12Mpixel CMOS (most likely same as D2X)

  • 6 fps and boost to 8 fps with power grip (no HSC mode)

  • ISO 200 - 3200 with LO (iso100 equiv), H1 (iso 6400)

D3 and D300 share the same AF system. 51 AF points. 15 of them are cross sensor.
Supports live view mode. Switch to contrast based AF in live view mode.

Five new lenses.

  • AF-S 24-70/2.8 G

  • AF-S VR 400/2.8 G
