Official Nikon D3100 Announcement Expected August 19th

We’re expecting to get official word on the D3100 next month; Nikon is currently planning a press event the week of August 16th-20th in Europe, which is pretty typical. It’s expected that there will be two events, one to announce the launch of new Coolpix cameras, and one to announce the launch of the previously rumored D3100, as well as some new lens. More details after the jump.

We’ve heard about the D3100, but it appears that there may be four new lenses coming as well. This is a rumor at this point, but Nikon is expected to launch a new 85mm f/1.4, a 24-120mm f/4, a new 18-200mm f/3.5-5.6 in FX (my favorite DX lens), and an upgraded 55-300mm f/4.5-5.6 lens. Exciting stuff. Since the press event will be in Europe, we should have the official news on the 20th.
