Being a Nikon shooter, Photo Plus Expo 2010 in New York City was an excellent time for me to visit Nikont. Nikon has new lenses like the their 24mm F/1.4 which we reviewed not too long ago, as well as the 35mm F/1.4 and their 85mm F/1.4. I got to see some incredible examples of what these lenses could do. I was able to get sample images with the Nikon D7000 and D3100 which I talked about in a post several weeks ago. I also finally got my hands on the P7000. There was no news on the next full frame from Nikon.
Watch out Canon! Nikon’s new P7000 seems very aggressively targeted towards taking out the Canon PowerShot G11(reviewed here) from the market. With a long feature set, we may perhaps see this taking aim at the Canon PowerShot S95in addition to the Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX5(comparison here) and the rumored G12. Nikon also announced the S8100 and the S80—all of which I’ve seen in person and was able to hold. I’ve seen these cameras about a month ago: my notes from the meeting and press releases are after the jump.
