Nikon D3 & D300 Released

Nikon officially announces D3 and D300, lenses

Alright, Nikon's two new flagship DSLRs are officially announced. (Better images coming right up.) Here's what you need to know:

  • 12.1 megapixel, full-frame friggin sensor! (23.9 x 36mm) Finally. ISO up to 6400 with BOOST TO 12800 & 25600!!!
  • 3-inch VGA live view LCD
  • Two (count 'em, two!) CompactFlash card slots for overflow, backup, or copying
  • New EXPEED image processor
  • 9fps in full frame, 11fps in DX crop; 51 point autofocus (with "3D focus tracking")
  • HDMI out with optional cable
  • $5000, November release
  • 12.3 megapixel DX (1.5 crop) sensor
  • 3-inch VGA live view LCD
  • New EXPEED image processor
  • 51 point autofocus
  • $1800, November release
  • 8FPS with grip, 6FPS normal
  • AF-S NIKKOR 14-24mm f/2.8G ED
  • AF-S NIKKOR 24-70mm f/2.8G ED
  • AF-S NIKKOR 400mm f/2.8G ED VR
  • AF-S NIKKOR 500mm f/4G ED VR
  • AF-S NIKKOR 600mm f/4G ED VR
Boost to 12800 & 25600 implies that 6400 base, will probably be pretty well. I wouldn't doubt this will beat out the Canon 1D Mark III.
