Looks like the rumors are coming true according to nikonrumors.com as a German magazine just happened to publish information regarding a new Nikon body–D3100. It is the D3000 replacement. To me, I’m more excited about the new Nikkor 85mm f/1.4G AF-S with Nano Coating and the 28-300mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR AF-S. I loved the 18-200mm f/3.5-5.6 VR for DX cameras especially on my D200. The new 28-300mm is about the same zoom range since DX cameras have a 1.5x crop factor. As for the 85mm f/1.4G, I’m just waiting to compare the bokeh of this new lens to the old AF-D version.
