In August 2008, Nikon changed the landscape of DSLR technology with the introduction of the Nikon D90, the world's first DSLR to offer HD video capture. Fast-forward two years and Nikon is once again churning the soil with the Nikon D7000, a new DSLR that ups the ante as per what serious shooters will be expecting from camera manufacturers from here on out.
For photojournalists, wedding photographers and others who often find themselves shooting stills or video under less than desirable lighting conditions, the new Nikkor AF-S 35mm f/1.4G completes the trifecta of Nikkor high-speed hotties that include Nikon's previously released AF-S 85mm f/1.4G and AF-S 24mm f/1.4G.
Nikon's new AF-S Nikkor 200mm f/2 ED VR II is the latest in a series of 200mm f/2 optics that Nikon has been producing for many years, and pros who need glass that's long and fast will truly appreciate the latest incarnation of this Nikkor classic.

Samsung has joined the mirror-less digital camera parade with the introduction of the Samsung NX100, a compact digital camera that features a 14.6-megapixel APS-C format CMOS sensor and an interchangeable lens mount.
Daytrippers looking for an able bodied, pocket-sized digicam that packs a combination of high levels of resolving power, a broad focal range, HD video capability and impressively fast burst rates in a stylish, yet serious-looking package should take a close look at the Nikon CoolPix S8100.
Shooters looking for a thin-profile digicam that features high resolution, the option of shooting stills or HD video and a large, easy-to-use touch-screen display should take a gander at one of Nikon's newest CoolPix offerings, the Nikon CoolPix S80.
