Nikon has launched the D5500, a DX-format DSLR complete with a vari-angle touchscreen. The D5500 also stands proud technically with a 24.2-megapixel sensor and an ISO range of 100-25,600. If you’ve been following the range, you’ll notice this latest model is significantly lighter and slimmer than its predecessors, but it’s also fitted with an improved grip for better handling. If you’re after just the body, it’ll cost you £630 and you’ll get a choice of black or red; with the 18-55mm VR II lens (black or red) it’s £720 and with an 18-140mm VR lens (black) it costs £900. Nikon also announced the availability of the AF-S Nikkor 300mm f/4E PF ED VR lens. This telephoto benefits from a Phase Fresnel element, which makes the lens lighter and smaller without affecting

image quality. It has VR technology that lets you shoot at speeds of up to 4.5 stops slower, whilst a new sport VR mode facilitates panning to capture fast-moving subjects with superb clarity. This top-end telephoto costs £1640. Last but not least, there’s a telephoto zoom to shout about, the AF-S DX Nikkor 55-200mm f/4-5.6G ED VR II (£280). It’s neat and compact, measuring just 83mm at its shortest length, which makes it a great pairing for the D5500.
