Nikon DSLR Map July 2010

July 7, 2010

Interested in when new Nikon DSLRs will arrive? I know I get asked often, so I sat down and had a look to see if I can extrapolate what will arrive when based on the design trends and release patterns that Nikon have used.

In short the soonest we should get:

  • D4 – Q311
  • D3Xs – Q410
  • D4X – Q412
  • D700X or D700s or both – Q310
  • D800 – Q312
  • D400 – Q111
  • D90s or D90 replacement – Q310 or Q112
  • D5000 replacement – Q410 but this troubles me
  • D3000 replacement – Q111

Want to see why? Have a read of the full article to find out.

Hey Stevo, do you have any formula handy to figure out when Canon will release the 5D MK III?

You may or may not have noticed that some of the articles recently have been written by another person. Steve may have a formula for predicting time frames for Canon like mine for Nikon, but if he doesnt I may just nut it out one evening when I have time. It will probably take me longer as I am not as familiar with Canon’s release history, nor their product linage.

Hey Josh:

That’s the $10 question. I’ve heard it will be out next October-ish, but other whispers have said not until 2011.

Canon has a history of a summer, autumn and winter product announcements. I’m betting we see the 60D announced this summer, the 2000D announced in October, and the 5D Mark III in the new year.

That said, Photokina is in September – that’s a giant wild-card as all the manufacturers will announce new products. Canon could announce one of the XXD, XXXXD or XD cameras at that time, although many people think a Canon EVIL (and maybe a Nikon EVIL) will be announced.
