Default New Nikon 5000?

Anybody out there who knows if Nikon is developing a successor for the 5000? Upgraded electronics, faster reaction time, etc, etc.
I need the wide angle lens of the 5000. The Minolta 7 series seems a bit less sharp and has a higer noise level. If there is any other brand developing a prosumer camera with wideangle lens I am interested as well.

Hope to hear!

I would consider CP5000 or Dimage 7hi. If your'e into pure quality of the shots - choose cp5000, which has an execellent and outstanding imagequality for a compact digicam.

The Dimage 7hi however has a lot more features to offer . Look at the specifications of both and consider what you actually need.

Thanks Klaus for your advise!

I am still curious whether Nikon is coming out with a successor for the 5000. It seems the camera has it share of fans and after two year without hardware changes it seems time for a upgrade.

Lens is ok! I have seen the sample pictures. Body looks fine as well. 5 MP is more than enough for me. But speed and battery usage is what I am looking for, and I need to be able to fix a lens hood/filters in normal sizes.

Anyway is there anybody who knows more?

Default What's Next?

I just talked to a Nikon rep. on May 17. She said on June 1 there will be an announcement as to the next camera(s) Nikon is bringing out. The 5700 is staying in the lineup, just rebating to keep it more competitive. Just 10 days and you will know.

I believe it is going to be the Coolpix SQ, but that is all I have heard so far. I'm not sure about a new 5mp in the lineup yet, but that's all I've heard.

thanks for the info on the 1st june. Hoping that is true of course. I have been waiting for a good camera already for some time; 8 days extra is not a big problem!
