Another official video showing the D3300
Besides the D3300 Nikon also introduced two lenses:
- AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G VR II – a new, more compact (30% smaller) kit lens. It will sell with the D3300 or on its own for about $250.
- AF-S Nikkor 35mm F1.8G – A new full frame fast wide lens. It will sell for about $600 (you can pre-order one at B&H).
Besides than D3300 and the two lenses Nikon also announced it is working on a new version for its top of the line pro D4 camera. This new version will be called D4S. Very little info has been given at this point (the camera will be announced officially in a few weeks and be available in March 2014) but we do know that it will have improved AF and faster shooting speed.
