Image for article titled Rumor: Nikon D3s Due Out In October, Adds 1080p Video

An anonymous tipster over at Nikon Rumors reports this weekend that the pro-level Nikon D3 will be on the receiving end of a refresh on or around October 15.


Topping the list of expected features and improvements are 14fps and 1080p video, as well as a Nikon AF-S Nikkor 16-35mm f/4G ED VR lens.

Things I probably don't need to remind you of but will say anyway: This is an "anonymous tip" at a web site with the word "rumors" in the title—to say you should remain dubious until more concrete info surfaces is an understatement.

f/4? That better be a pretty cheap lens then. The industry keeps slacking in order to push high-ISO performance. Back in the day of ISO 12 film, there were f/0.95 and f/1.2 glass so that ISO 12 film was actually usable, and the bokeh was delicious. Now that the camera makers have clean 1600 ISO on the high-end, it's OK for them to release f/2.8 zooms and now even f/4 zooms.

Bring back my fast glass please!!!
