I haven’t seen reviews of these yet, but Nikon has a pretty interesting 1Q04:
* D70. A response to the Canon Digital Rebel. This is a 6Mp camera. Also has a new 18-70mm f/3.5-4.5 zoom lens. “DPPhoto”:http://www.dpreview.com/articles/nikond70/ thinks it compares well with its bigger brother, the D100, and its competition, the Canon EOS-300D.
* “Nikon COOLSCAN V ED”:http://www.nikon-image.com/eng/Film_Scanners/ls50ed.htm. Their latest low-cost scanner. It has 4,000 dpi optical resolution, digital ICE automatic correction of slides, etc and scans in 38 seconds. Wow, how cool. Not as high resolution as say the Konica Minolta Dimage 5400, but only $600 vs. $900.
* “Nikon Nikkor AF-S VR 70-200mm f/2.8G IF-ED”:http://www.nikon-image.com/eng/Nikkor_Lenses/AF_Zoom/af-svr70-200a.htm. The ultimate pro lenses. $1,500 of pure joy. Of course who really needs such an incredible lense. For half the price, you can get a 80-200mm lense without the vibration reduction for instance.
