[News] Nikon D3200, WU-1a Transmitter, and 28mm 1.8G Leaked!
Due later tonight is an official announcement of Nikon’s new D3200 DSLR. But Nikon Switzerland seems to have beaten the rest of the world to the punch. They published a wonderful PDF: a price list outlining Nikon’s entire line-up — including the D3200, a wireless transmitter, and new lens…
Nikon D3200 Rumored Specs:
– ISO 100-6400 (Hi 12,800)
– 11 AF Points
– Improved Video
– Somewhere in the $700-800 range (the document puts it at ~$760 after conversion from the Swiss Franc)
What features the WU-1a wireless transmitter will have is still uncertain. But we do have a rough price: $50. Either Nikon will be sure to make it slow and missing some key feature, or we’ll all be wondering why we’re paying $800 more for the same thing on the D4. Time will tell.
Update: At second glance, the WU-1a is described as a “wireless mobile adapter” while the pro wireless adapters are referred to as “W-Lan adapter sets.” Maybe that hints toward a difference. What could it be?
Also announced through this PDF is a new lens: the 28mm 1.8G AF-S. At first glance, it seems to add to the 50mm 1.8G AF-S. But an approximate $900 price tag and 67mm filter thread points to a heftier beast. This is sounding more like a budget replacement for the outrageous 24mm 1.4 AF-S
For those that like to see for themselves, here’s link to that PDF.
