The Nikon D5300 DSLR camera and the Nikkor 58mm f/1.4G lens are rumored to be announced in the near future during a special event.
The rumor mill has been talking about the D5300 and D610 camera recently. The latter has just become official, but the former is still unannounced.
Well, according to new information, the APS-C camera will go live in the coming days, if not hours. Furthermore, the DSLR will be introduced along with a new prime lens, the Nikkor 58mm f/1.4G.
First Nikon D5300 photo shows up the web
Right before the announcement, the first Nikon D5300 photo has been leaked on the web, along with more specifications.
The leaked image reveals that the D5200 replacement will feature a modified pentaprism area when compared to its predecessor.
It is very likely that its audio recording capabilities will get an improvement, but we will be certain of this fact only when the camera gets unveiled.
New Nikon D5300 leaked ahead of announcement
The Nikon D5300 specs list will be a little different from the one of its forerunner. The new APS-C DSLR will feature a 24.1-megapixel sensor without an anti-aliasing filter. In fact, it is the same sensor as the one found in the higher-end D7100.
It will become the first Nikon camera to be powered by the EXPEED 4 processor. Despite this fact, the shooter will be capable of capturing up to 5fps, similar to the capability of the D5200. Additionally, the DSLR will be the company’s first to feature integrated WiFi and GPS.
Other included specs are the 39-point AF system, 1920 x 1080 video recording at 60fps, and a 3.2-inch tilting LCD screen, that should help with your self-portraits.
AF-S Nikkor 58mm f/1.4G lens to become official soon, too
Nikon will use some of its precious time to make the AF-S Nikkor 58mm f/1.4G lens official. The optic will be based on nine elements split in six groups and a diaphragm made out of nine blades.
The lens also sports Nano Crystal coating that improves image quality and reduces optical flaws, while providing beautiful bokeh effects.
According to inside sources, it should have a weight of 385 grams and sell for a price bigger than $2,000.
Thankfully, there is not much time left until the purported announcements, therefore you should stay tuned to find out all the details.
