I would love to see Nikon introduce a replacement for the D700. Full-frame, maybe 16-18 megapixels, improved AF, 1080p video. What would you like to see?

I don't need more megapixels.
I'd love to have more dinamic range, and less noise. I would rather have less noisy ISOs that higher ISOs.

1. Start bringing Full Frame down the product line, starting with the D300 range.

2. A full manual dSLR based on the FM or FE body--AI and AIS MF lenses only, saves only in RAW, no LCD (maybe an optional off camera unit that can be used tethered or via Wi-Fi for LCD, off camera storage, other add ons like GPS, etc.), all manual controls. (hey, you asked).

3. Allow the lower end cameras to meter MF lenses (oh wait, that would drive up demand for those cameras! scratch that!)

Rerelease the 28mm f/1.4
The thing is already designed.
Just do a second production run on it.

Otherwise, a 24mp full frame under $2200

Could write a long list of items that I have been waiting for quite some time - but I have almost given up on ever seeing them and have resigned to make do with what I have.

D400 - don't care about the details - so that I can decide between it and purchasing another D300 (which by now has to be a D300s with the to me useless video feature). Wouldn't mind if the battery grip was integrated in the body.

My hope is that Nikon starts bringing sensible lenses to the market again - and not missing the boat like with the 16-85/3.5-5.6 (which should have been a 16-85/4) and not stepping backwards as in the case of the 12-24/4 to the 10-24/3.5-4.5. The 11-16/2.8 should have been a Nikon and not a Tokina lens.

Some constant f/4 FX zooms (like 70-200/4, 16-24/4 and 24-105/4) - one reason I am not considering FX at the moment is the huge cost of the f/2.8 lenses and the lack of alternatives.

Then:
300/4 AF-S VR;
80-400/4.5-5.6 AF-S VR - might well be a 100-500/4.5-5.6 (wouldn't mind if it started at 200 though).
400/5.6 AF-S VR or 500/5.6 AF-S VR;
50-150/2.8 DX
bring back the 70-180 Micro Zoom as a f/4 with AF-S
300-500/4 AF-S VR

How about some narrow range zooms instead of primes, like:
24-35/2 for FX,
the equivalent 16-28/2 for DX,
and a 75-135/2.

9-18/2.8 DX
16/2 DX
24/2
28/1.4

16-70/2.8

A 25% price cut across the board...

I would like some fast primes too. Good wishes everyone. Less noise at high ISOs would be awesome. I know I can get that with a D700 now but upgrading from a D300 at 12MP to a D700 at 12MP just isn't enough for me despite the advantages of full-frame right now.

70-200 f/4
70-200 f/4 VR

To go along with the 70-200 f/2.8 VR... In an instant I would buy the 70-200 f/4.


I'd also like to see Nikon improve their video by allowing more control over it, such as shutter speed, ISO, aperture, etc... Something along the lines of what the 7D and 5D can do...

I'm really looking for the 85mm f/1.4 AF-S. More fast primes with AF-S would be great. I'd also like a replacement for the 80-400mm VR with AF-S and nanocoat.

As for the body I'm really looking for about 16MP to make me happy, but 12MP is just fine. I'd prefer better dynamic range and white balance. I'd love to have the option for 2 EV bracketing (rather than 1 EV) still with 1/3 stops. Also I'd like the DX and FX bodies in basically the same controls and form (I kept trying to rip the door off the D300 since it used a different door than the D700 which is the body I use most of the time).

Full frame, Coolpix compact, with a fast, mid-range zoom. Lugging a D700 with battery pack and 24-70mm f2.8 lens hardly screams 'conspicuous.' And, this rig can't be hauled around all the time.
Anthony V. Loh 9 years ago
1.) A FX body that can be more effectively utilise my DX lenses (e.g., automatically switch to a higher mp when a cropped function is employed) so that I don't have to sell them or buy more lenses if I decided to go FX.
2.) Lighter (not neccessarily cheaper, but would be a plus) pro grade lenses.
most requests are a bit silly here! Summed up as "I WANT MORE!!! AND CHEAPER!!" some people just are not being realistic. I'm also surprised that people want more mega pixels in the same size sensor without compromising image quality...there is a reason the D3&d3s have more or less the same MP!
But I'm with everyone on the newer primes...that would be cool!
A new fx fisheye would rock!
Faster and cheaper AF-S zooms...

Yes. True. But I think a request for some price reduction due to economies of scale and advances in technology are not unwarranted. That said, I don't see that many people who are craving a constant f/4 lineup equivalent of the f/2.8 lenses as wanting more for less. Quite the contrary. They're willing to give up a little something to get access to things that they normally wouldn't have due to the "all or nothing" nature of the current lineup where part of that "all" includes a hefty pricetag.

I'm also surprised that people want more mega pixels in the same size sensor without compromising image quality...there is a reason the D3&d3s have more or less the same MP!


It is possible to build an imaging sensor with more MP without sacrificing IQ. The D3 and D3s are stuck in one game where the rules dictate the compromises inherent in increasing pixel density (as evidenced by the D3x). But the trick is that you change the game so that the rules are different or at the very least the penalties are different. See BSI and canted photosite layouts.
Random Snapper Posted 9 years ago. Edited by Random Snapper (member) 9 years ago
I am happy with 12MP but 18MP and the same quality / low light capability would be nice. I must say my current zooms are so good I have started to lose interest in the primes - maybe its just been too long a wait. So...my top five in order.

1. Nikon competitor to Panasonic GF1 or G11. (Something small with DX sensor. Interchangable lenses is nice but optional.)
2. Update for 80-400 (Compact carry telephoto w/ VRII, AFS and coated)
3. Update to SB600 (Some SB900 features downscaled)
4. Decrease in ISO to 25 (absolutley Knudsberg!)
5. D600 (light FX camera)

- Smaller, lighter FX cameras.
- Less noise, better exposure latitude at moderate ISOs.
- Lower ISOs. 25 would be great for long exposures at reasonable apertures without mucking around with ND filters.
- More fast, wide-angle primes.
- 4:5 crop in a consumer camera. I compose with the whole viewfinder, then end up cropping out stuff I want to keep when I print an 8x10. At least give me 4:5 guidelines in the frame.

- GPS would be nice. Not a big deal though.

- A digital version of the Nikon SP would be awesome. Even if it isn't actually a mechanically-coupled rangefinder camera, a full-frame point-and-shoot with an optical finder (none of this EVF crap; if I want accurate framing, I'll use the LCD) and the ability to lock focus such that there is *no* discernible lag in shooting would be great. Interchangable lenses would be ideal. Something like a 40mm f/1.8 would be acceptable though.

Things I don't care about:
- Crazy amounts of megapixels like 24mp. I don't print that big. 12 or 18 is fine.
- Video. It doesn't bother me to have it, but I won't use it. I don't know why some people have such a problem with video features; I just don't care. If we've got to have it, though, make it as good as anything Canon has.
- WiFi. Why?

James Kaarremaa 9 years ago
Well I think an affordable 24mp is needed in the lineup since both Sony & Canon are offering this. Many professionals do need more megapixels and it's important that Nikon stays a viable option for working pros. The D3X is good but the majority of PRO's don't need a large camera & can't justify the price when you can get a camera with similar performance for thousands less. 1080p video is also needed at least for competition sake. I'm one of the few that like video as a feature but I don't want crippled video so I'm waiting.

I'm not sure how they will pull it off though. They can't really introduce a D700x at the same price point but pricing it higher makes it pricier than the competition. I can't picture anything groundbreaking in the way of bodies for a while.

I want a lens that can do everything! It would probably bankrupt Nikon but I am sure they have the knowledge to make it happen. Lets say hello to the Nikkor 12-400mm f/1.4 ED VR II AF-S Lens For Nikon Digital SLR Cameras. It is about the size of the 24-70mm f/2.8 and works for both DX and FX bodies (not that 5mp crap on my D700!). You can shoot anything from weddings to nature photography and sports and the autofocus is not only whisper quiet it is also super fast! Cost would be in the $5000 range, but I know all pros would want one because it would replace about half a dozen lenses. This should be the future because it means not having to change lenses and saving my back from carrying 30lbs. I would pay $10,000 for this lens!

charming hall [deleted] 9 years ago
since I can't afford an FX camera + the corresponding fast primes to go with it (ie. the new 24mm, and the current trifecta of nikkor f/2.8 zooms) - i'll be sticking with my d200 until it dies.

but I'd really like to see more pro-grade DX lenses.

1. a revamp of the 17-55, w/ a nano coating + vr ii
2. a fast f/2.8, 50-150 (or something similar), w/ nano + vr
3. a really fast wide-angle prime, like a 16mm f/1.4, w/ nano but no vr...just to keep the cost reasonable.

4. and a modernized 85mm f/1.4 or f/1.2 FX lens, I use my 85mm f/1.8 for a lot of event photography and I've grown accustomed to the focal length on DX, but the old AF-D design can be a pain when tracking even slow moving (walking) subjects in low light.

5. Longshot: FX FM3D (a full frame digital fm3a) - i think it would be fun, and way too expensive, but any new equipment purchases right now is just wishful thinking anyways.

Hmmm... I think you'll have to pony up quite a bit more cash than that. Last time I checked, it gets very very very expensive to break laws of physics. However, if you're willing to trade off weight or rather lack thereof then you could probably get by with today's optical technology. The thing is you will have to adjust your expectations in the other direction. Rather than saving you 30 pounds, it will force you to burden 30 tons.

I don't agree with the idea of a GPS built-in in all cameras. It adds to the cost of the body, and it drains the batteries much quicker.

People are going nuts for used Coolscans (they are hitting three times their price when new), so there must be a market. No new dev needed on hardware, just a need to keep the software up to date, or just package SilverFast and no need to maintain software at all.

@whatadqr They can't the formula required a lead element which is illegal for import in the EU. That lens is dead. On the plus side, it will stop increasing out of reach because the 24/1.4 kicks it optically.



I’d like to see a D700x because it'd be nice to own that. I want it a CF/SD duo like the D300s. The D3x is out of my range, and the D3 is still doing well for me.

I’d like to see a new ASIC and new processing for video performance. Looks like we're getting that though (Nikon has affirmed commitment) and the patent they have in live view is very slick. Still, I’d probably stick with Panasonic or Sony for this, but it’d be nice to know I have D-movie that is great here.

I'd like to see a D90 refresh for marketing purposes, preferably with this new ASIC. Looks like we might get that late this year though.

I’d like to see a D5000 refresh with the new popout LCD they have in the P series. It’s a good idea (I have a D5000 so this is strictly for Nikon market position).

I’d like to see Nikon regain something in the compact market. Something to compete with the LX3 more than something for the G11 (which I think is dead).

Speaking of that, I’d like to see a Nikon EVIL early next year (I own a Leica M8 and Olympus E-P2 so this is not for me).

I’d like to see all new Nikons updated to support the faster writes in the new CF and SDXC standards. I’d like to see Eye-Fi support a la the new Canon. I just think it makes sense and isn’t very costly.

I’d like to see Nikon finally fix the M-S-C switch on their bodies (D300 and up). Those things are finicky.

I'm happy with the lenses I have or will get. I can probably pass on seeing new ones. My guess is they're going to update the 18-105 or 18-135 for the D90 sequel. For Nikon's market, I’d like to see a 50/1.8G DX or franly any DX normal that can be had for $120 maximum.

The D300S, D5000 and D3000 already have support for Eye-Fi cards in the same way as the Canon T2i.

From the D300S manual (note - this is a cut&paste from the PDF of the manual so some characters/images do not appear):
This option is displayed only when an Eye-Fi memory card (available separately from third-party suppliers) is inserted in the camera. Choose Enable to upload photographs to a preselected destination. Note that pictures will not be uploaded if signal strength is insufficient.

Observe all local laws concerning wireless devices and choose Disable where wireless devices are prohibited.

When an Eye-Fi card is inserted, its status is indicated by an icon in the information display:
• d: Eye-Fi upload disabled.
• e: Eye-Fi upload enabled but no pictures available for upload.
• f (static): Eye-Fi upload enabled; waiting to begin upload.
• f (animated): Eye-Fi upload enabled; uploading data.
• g: Error. — camera can not control Eye-Fi card. If a blinking Q appears in the control panel or viewfinder, refer to page 382; if this indicator is not displayed, pictures can be taken normally but you may be unable to change Eye-Fi settings.

Eye-Fi Cards
For information on errors involving Eye-Fi cards, see the manual provided with the Eye-Fi card, and direct any inquiries to the manufacturer. The camera can be used to turn Eye-Fi cards on and off, but may not support other Eye-Fi functions.

Supported Eye-Fi Cards
As of April 2009, the following 2 GB Eye-Fi cards can be used: Eye-Fi Home, Eye-Fi Share, and Eye-Fi Explore. Eye-Fi cards are for use only in the country of purchase. Be sure the Eye-Fi card firmware has been updated to the latest version.

A replacement to the SB-600 (call it the SB-700 if you will) and use the SB-900 scroll dial and interface. SB-800 has been discontinued for so long, it's about time to say goodbye to the SB-600. I'll buy 2 SB-700s ASAP!

Lens wise, I just bought a 17-55 today. Really don't want to see that updated or I'll kick myself in the arse! But maybe an AF-S Nikkor Zoom 55-200mm ƒ/2.8G IF ED DX VRII lens would be phenomenal.

Those are my 2 cents! Happy Shooting!

Guys, according to nikonrumours.com, the new Nikon EVIL camera and lens system may well be announced this coming Monday, on March 8th. This really looks like a possibility at this point in time.

The new camera is being referred to Nikon's "G11 Killer", and that it will have DSLR like features.

See this link for full details:

I'd like them to study competing lens manufacturers and work out what the hell those companies are doing that enables them to sell high quality lenses at half Nikon's prices...

+ 1 (compare for example Sigma 17-70/2.8-4 HSM OS to Nikon 16-85/3.5-5.6 AF-S VR) .
Nikon could also take a hint from the focal ranges those third parties offer...

The D50 but with a decent viewfinder.

beachwalker2008 The secret is to build the lenses cheap as hell so if you bump them on something you're screwed.
beachwalker2007 9 years ago
kraig7777 yeah, as if the 24-85/3.5-4.5 or the 16-85/3.5-5.6 or the 24-120/3.5-5.6 are so confident inspiring. And my Sigma 150/2.8 or the Tokina 11-16/2.8 can well hold their own against anything Nikon can come up with. Not to mention, that neither lens has an equivalent in Nikon's lens lineup to begin with.

I want the sb800 back. I miss it soo much, the sb600 doesn't quite cut it and the sb900 costs an arm..
Nikon to listen do Hobby and lose the pc jack, get a 1/8.
Fast wide prime (more affordable) like an 16 or 18 f2.8 for under $1000.
Or just completely bring back the FX 13mm f5.6. SICK
www.kenrockwell.com/nikon/13mm.htm
And a lighter FX would be nice, Even the d700 is a bit hefty.
new fx with iso 25-12,800 But with the iso quality of the d3s.

bluetooth receiver inside, then the photo can be transfered by bluetooth and gps can be bluetooth transfered too. Otherwise, I will still use my Easytagger GPS.

How about this? The ability to take a still while in video mode. i.e, freeze a frame of the video without having to get out of video mode.

I am ITCHING for the new d700 replacement... I've been waiting and waiting and waiting in vain since the 'rumors' of a release to be happening 'soon' appeared on nikonrumors.com/2009/10/21/rumor-nikon-d800-instead-of-d7.... *sigh* and that was months and months and months ago... Anyone else getting impatient? I wonder if it will be a d700s/x or if they will launch a d800? Is anyone else out there waiting with baited breath? I shoot with a d80 now but have owned a d70s and a d100 and it's time for me to make the move up...

Wanting more and cheaper is not silly but the norm, its the way the market works, whether it is automobiles, remember when ABS and electric windows were extra cost options? Same with TVs, 50 inch, 100hz refresh now 1000BGP and not 4000GBP. But by having two ranges of lenses the sales volumes on the lenses tagged pro are too low so the price remains ridiculously high and completely out of reach for most, if they sold that quality of lense to everyone, the pros would pay less and we would pay a bit more and everyone would have more potental for good photos. The lense components would also be manufactured or purchased in greater volume and the margin on the lenses would be better.

Dont care what the Nikon rumours are, firstly because I will be using my D90 and D300S for a while yet, and secondly, I'll evaluate any announcement when it is made.

The Nikon D-Infinity!!

But it would have to move both forward
and backward in time.

But seriously, I want to see a Nikon
where you don't have to recharge
the battery when it drains. Preferably,
an attached solar device which can
charge the battery while the camera is on.

^^^good idea, maybe a top LCD that doubles as a solar panel

wide angle zoom like 16-70 fx with vr and 2.8

more range in fx series with vr and the prices of 400,600,are exorbitantly high

Forgot to mention, a line of 1.2 lenses.
20mm (if possible, if not, at least f2, and AF-S)
50mm an AF version of the 1.2 ai-s, even if they cheap out and only do it in af-d
85mm.

Much has been said about the great new gear Nikon could come up with that would make me very grateful indeed, but I want that 25 to 30% price reduction across the board that I imagine Nikon should introduce next!

(And a D700x with the D3x sensor and 1080P video...for under $3000!!!)

A 70--200mm f2.8 that isn't so dang fragile! I've sent it in for repair twice in the last 6 months!

Very simple a 18 mp, FX chip in a D300 style body frame. I shoot a lot of sky doing airshows and the like, and I do need more pixels to help keep the sky the right color with small airplanes in the frame. Also for evening shots. The D3x should have had a few more pixels on the imager, but I guess for USD7,000 you can only get so much out of Nikon.

The real question....is Nikon able to keep up with several other companies out there, who build their own imagers, and who have the in-depth know how on creating the appropriate process chips for the imager?. At the moment I am not holding my breath, but will enjoy any surprises they have to pony up this next year.

Oh by the way, more important than any of the crap I wrote above.....make it to where we as users can clean our own d@$n imager filters !!!
