The Nikon D3100 digital SLR was announced back in mid-August. You can read more about the D3100 in Nikon D3100 digital SLR preview, or have more of a look at the new Nikon in Nikon D3100 – photo gallery.

What was missing from the information at the announcement was the exact Nikon D3100 release date, all that was given was ‘September’, and the price. To date that additional information has still not been given.

However, one retailer, Ted’s Cameras, has in fact listed pricing. And here it is:

  • Nikon D3100 + 18-55mm VR Kit – $999.95
  • Nikon D3100 + 18-55/55-200mm VR Kit – $1,299.95
  • Nikon D3100 + 18-55/55-300mm VR Kit – $1,399.95

I’d still like to see something official from Nikon regarding the price, and when the D3100 will land in stores. They may be timing the final announcements around the start of photokina, the world’s biggest trade fair for the photographic and imaging industries, which takes place in Cologne, Germany, and begins on September 21.

Watch this space!

UPDATE – Nikon have now released its official pricing for the D3100:

  • Body only: $949
  • D3100 + 18-55mm VR: $1,049
  • D3100 + 18-55mm VR + 55-200mm VR: $1,299
  • D3100 + 18-55mm VR + 55-300mm VR: $1,499

Nikon will donate $30 to Surf Life Saving Australia from the sale of every D3100 during the pre-Christmas period.

A hat tip to Chris N for pointing out the Ted’s listing.
