According to his source it will have the following features:

  • Completely new camera design
  • Very fast everything
  • 18MP sensor
  • External (probably optional) 2.4MP electronic viewfinder (EVF)
  • Eye sensor and a button to switch between LCD and EVF
  • 180° swivel LCD screen
  • New grip (also probably optional, not sure if it will have batteries)
  • New Nikkor 10-30mm f/3.5-5.6 PD VR zoom lens
  • The official announcement will be in the next 1-2 months

A comment on Nikon Rumors from the user Piggy White, who has been right in the past:

You seem to have the correct specs. I should add that they’re promising a very fast AF and shooting (~20 FPS), so in some ways this toy could be compared to PRO level DSLRs (not in terms of glass of course). They will also add a bit more external controls, so no more slow digging for features in menu.


Update 01.03.2014

Nikon Rumors has released yet more info on the V3:

  • The new external grip will not take any batteries, but it will have a shutter button and front dial
  • Optical viewfinder – this is where I am a bit confused. I think the camera will have an optical viewfinder and an optional EVF as previously reported.
  • Expeed 4a imaging processor
  • The camera design will be similar to the sketch above, but it will be all black (not sure if they will offer different colors)
  • The official announcement is expected in March (most likely in mid-March)
