Nikon 1 V3 launched (finally)




Nikon 1 Nikkor 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6 VR (189-810mm equivalent)

I have been waiting for the Nikon 1 V3 since a long time. I do love the 1 system from Nikon, I already have the 1 V1 with 10/2.8, 18.5/1.8, 32/1.2, 6.7-13mm, 10-100mm VR and I’m very satisfied from what it does. The 1 V1 is a super fast compact. The 1 V3 seems to be an even faster cam with tons of features i’ve been waiting for: Tilt screen, 18MP, 160-12800 ISO range, built in WiFi, a 720p slow movie mode at 120fps, and a very fast processor. I was hoping for a standard Hot shoe though … 

The kit which includes the body, the new 1 Nikkor VR 10-30mm f/3.5-5.6 PD lens, GR-N1010 Grip and the DF-N1000 Electronic View Finder is priced for $1,196.95. 

You can pre-order the Nikon 1 V3 kit with the new 10-30mm, EVF, and grip HERE. You can pre-order the Nikon 1 Nikkor 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6 VR lens HERE.
