Rumor: Next Week to Bring New Gear for Nikon 1 Series

What’s churning away in the rumor mills regarding Nikon? According to Nikon Rumors, it’s the impending announcement of the Nikon 1 V3, the 10-30mm f/3.5-5.6 PD VR lens, the 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6 VR zoom, and a new Nikon 1-series light that may very well be one of the prototype LED lights Nikon revealed at PhotoPlus.

Thought to be announced in the coming week — more specifically the 12th or 13th – these new pieces of gear for the Nikon 1 series would add a great deal of gear to Nikon’s mirrorless lineup. And while Nikon Rumors has made mention of some new D800 rumors lately, this is believed to be a Nikon 1 event only.

For a breakdown of the latest specs expected to be seen in the Nikon 1 V3, here’s a list NR put together:

  • No optical viewfinder
  • Optional, external 2.4MP electronic EVF that will attach to the hot shoe
  • Built-in flash
  • Standard hot shoe — you will be able to use regular Nikon Speedlights and the built-in flash could act as a wireless commander
  • Several new video features
  • New external grip will not take any batteries, but it will have a shutter button and front dial
  • Expeed 4a imaging processor
  • Completely new camera design similar to the drawings of this recently filed patent
  • Very fast everything
  • 18MP sensor
  • Eye sensor and a button to switch between LCD and EVF
  • 180° swivel LCD screen

It looks to be a rather substantial upgrade and with it being less than a week away, it shouldn’t be long before we find out for sure what Nikon is holding in store. For you Nikon 1 shooters out there, what improvements would you like to see to the V-series of cameras?
