Nikon D200 imminent

Recommended Posts

Would that 16-70 focus to 1:1 macro at the 70mm focal length?

I really don't think this lens (if real) will be 1:1 on any length, but if this is the case I will get one for sure! Also, Nikon already has 3 DX lenses in this general focal length (18-70, 18-55 and 17-55), I don't see much reason for another one. A fast 10-2X (twenty something) would be sweet.

I don't expect one. It's just been my dream lens since I started UW photography.

All right, for those waiting and waiting, hold your breath, the announcement is very close. The name D200 is starting to appear in official Nikon pages, here is the link for a Nikon page in Sweden for a yet-to-be-released update of Picture Project:

It is not in English, but anybody can tell that the major upgrade for version 1.61 is to add support to D200 NEF files.

I translated it and what it really means is that you can take two D100 exposures and COMBINE them together for a 'D200' file. They apologized for the confusion :)

I can't judge much from those pictures (and the link doesn't work so I had to find them on DPReview). But it looks like this camera has D2/F6 AF. LCD looks big and viewfinder small.

 

I hope that Nikon has learned from the past and has planned a short and reliable time between announcement and deliveries. But then while I am wishing, I'd like to walk downstairs and find a Porsche Cayman waiting for me...

I have seen the higher res images now and they look pretty reliable.

There is a strange switch on the back I dunno what it is for (at the bottom on the right hand side of the LCD). Any ideas?

 

The bigger question is that this camera looks pretty similar in shape and size to the D100 and D70 - do you think it might squeese into existing housings? I don't think that all the rear controls will line up, but others might.

Didn't take long for the link to die - oh well. I've got the pictures saved at work (home now). Thanks Alex for posting some, I didn't know whether I was allowed to.

Rob, the D200 specs posted on the Norwegian site don't look much like what I've been hearing...
