An update to a classic old lens with a lot of reach
By Stan Horaczek on March 5, 2013
In addition to their new Coolpix A APS-C compact camera, Nikon has some new glass to add to the Nikkor lineup. The new 80-400mm F/4.5-5.6 ED VR is actually an update to an older lens, bringing some new features to a niche favorite.
Big sensors crammed into little cameras has become the name of the game lately. Sony's insane RX1 full-frame compact is still the champ when it comes to putting a big chip in a little box, but now Nikon has packed a 16.2-megapixel DX-format (APS-C) sensor into a compact of their own.
At least on paper, Nikon's new APS-C DSLR is tough to beat

Remember that thing I said earlier about this being the time of year for camera companies to update previous models? Well, the next up to bat is Nikon and they have an impressive-looking APS-C offering in the new D7100.

At CP+ in Japan, Nikon has unveiled a stack of new cameras, including three new superzooms, and a pair of affordable traditional compact cameras. By far the most interesting of the set is the new Nikon Coolpix P520, and update from last year's well-regarded P510. The newest high-end long-zoom from Nikon will arrive with a $449.95 in February, and will feature 42x 24-1000mm equivalent f/3-5.9 lens.
Nikon has been on a bit of a lens tear lately and they apparently have no intention of stopping. Now, they have a new super-telephoto lens and a budget-friendly wide angle zoom to add to the Nikkor line-up.
Starting next week, Nikon's "My Picturetown" will be Morphing Into "Nikon Image Space", offering new features and tools

Nikon's My Picturetown has been running since 2007, offering a largely ignored way of uploading and sharing photos. Now the company is taking another stab at the whole online photo thing with the newly announced Nikon Image Space.
This full-frame DSLR provides high-performance at a low price

A full-frame DSLR body has long been on the wish lists of many more photographers than could afford one. Now, both Nikon and Canon have announced cameras priced at about $2,100 (street, body only), pitching them as “low-cost” full-framers.
