Nikon D3100 Official Announcement Coming August 19th

If you’ve been impatiently twiddling your fingers, waiting for Nikon to bust out new DSLR cameras and lenses, your wait is almost over. Nikon is planning is planning to announce the successor of the D3000 — the D3100 — on August 19th, 2010, along with four new lenses.

The Nikon D3100 is expected to have a 10 megapixel sensor, shoot at 3 fps, and have the ability to shoot HD video with continuous autofocus.

The lenses are expected to be a new 85mm f/1.4, a 24-120mm f/4, a new 18-200mm f/3.5-5.6 FX, and an upgraded 55-300mm f/4.5-5.6.

Nikon has been pretty quiet as of late, so hopefully these announcements just the first of many interesting unveilings!

    What do you need (that isn't already out there) so desperately that would make you jump ship? Just curious.

    I for one am intrigued by a new 85 1.4.
