Nikon D6 DSLR & 120-300mm lens

New Nikon Flagship DSLR Announced

Nikon has announced the development of their newest flagship DSLR, the Nikon D6. Given the timing of this announcement, and that 2019 marks the 20th year of Nikon single-digit “D” digital cameras (the D1 was released in 1999), I would speculate that we’ll see the D6 available sometime later this fall.

The flagship D-series Nikon DSLRs are geared towards professional sports/action photographers who need the best autofocus, fastest frame rates, and superior low-light performance. These cameras offer superior weather sealing, long battery life, and an integrated vertical grip, ideal for using larger telephoto lenses.

Also announced today was a new fast telephoto zoom lens for sports photographers. The Nikon 120-300mm f/2.8E FL ED SR VR lens will use Nikon’s electronic aperture control for more reliable exposure control, and will incorporate fluorite (FL) elements as well as Nikon’s extra low-dispersion (ED) glass elements. This pro lens will be ideal for sports photographers who work from fixed locations, where having a zoom lens becomes extremely valuable. What’s interesting here is the as of yet undisclosed “SR” designation. I guess we’ll have to wait to see what that one means!
