What can be forecasted of the most important (in my eyes 🙂 ) announces expected before the Photokina fair in Koln.

18 September Nikon lenses: AF-S 50mm/1.4 G – AF-S 85mm/1.4 G – AF-S 70-200mm/2,8 VRII.Nikon new SLR : D800 or D900 (24.6MP Full Frame dSLR camera, with Sony-designed sensor),

or Nikon new pro SLR: D3x or D4 (not sure, this one should only be ready at the end of 2008 or early 2009).

23 September Photoshop CS4 & Flash CS4
Only during Photokina Olympus first camera with Micro Four Thirds sensor

    For those not understanding the difference between the dates of 16th September and 17th September for the launch of the Canon EOS 5D Mk II, you only have to remember that it will happen early in the morning of the 17th in Europe, and late on the 16th in Asia, etc.
