The Nikon D5500 and D7200 have officially been discontinued. Both cameras are currently listed as “old” on the official Nikon Japan website, and they will not be produced any longer.
Things seem to be happening all at once for Nikon at the moment, with several announcements, and one rumour.
First up, for those that have been lucky enough to receive their Nikon D500 body already, the Nikon MB-D17 grip is now available to order from Amazon, offering a very welcome weight balance for those shooting longer lenses, as well as extended battery life, and ease of shooting portrait orientation images.
Nikon’s newly released flagship DX format DSLR has just been tested by the French measurements and ratings company, and it went straight to the top.
Nikon continues to dominate the APS-C category with its DX DSLRs in the top 5 spots, with Samsung, Pentax (2) and Sony (2) making up the rest of the top-10 list.
Canon’s flagship APS-C camera, the 7D Mark II, is far behind in the 59th spot.
There has been a lot of anticipation and a lot of speculation floating around as to when Nikon would announce the D7200 and what kind of upgrades we would see from it’s predecessor, the D7100. Wait no longer, as Nikon just spilled the beans on it’s newest DSLR. The camera is expected to be available in early April with a MSRP is $1,200 USD for the body only or $1,700 USD with the 18-140mm f3.5-5.6 kit lens. Since I know you’re anxious to see what it all has to offer, let’s cut straight to the chase.[Read More…]
There’s no longer a question whether or not the D7200 exists, the only question is when we will finally see it.
Previous reports expected to see the camera announced just before or at the CP+ show. While that obviously didn’t happen (possibly due to the announcement being delayed), it seems that the rumors weren’t far off.
We’ve heard rumors that Nikon has been working on the D7200 as a follow up to the D7100 and D7000, models and if this report from DiaryOfDennis is accurate, it looks like the company will be announce the new model at next week’s CP+ Camera And Photo Show. NikonRumors also posted on the possibility of an official announcement. Both websites are citing the same source, Novocert.ru, a Russian website which has gathered documents and information regarding the reportedly forthcoming Nikon cameras.[Read More…]
