Considering the number of recent leaks regarding Nikon’s D3100 DSLR, it’s not too surprising to hear that Nikon has officially announced its latest entry-level DSLR, along with a number of new lenses. The D3100 offers a 14-megapixel CMOS sensor and is capable of shooting 1080p video. The new EXPEED 2 processor claims to improve image quality and enables features such as continuous autofocus and native recording of H.264 video. ISO range is now rated from 100 up to 12,800, and other improvements include a 11-point autofocusing system, a 3 FPS continuous shooting mode, and a large 3-inch LCD. The D3100 will be shipping with Nikon’s 18-55mm kit lens and will be going for $700 in mid-September.
Nikon has also introduced the 55-300mm f4.5-5.6G ED VR telephoto lens for $400, the 24-120mm f4G ED VR and 28-300mm f3.5-5.6G ED VR for $1,050 and 1,300 respectively. Finally, the 85mm f1.4G prime lens will be going for $1,700. All these lenses will also be shipping in September.
