The D3000 (pictured here) is aimed at non-professional photographers who want a "bridge" camera between a point and shoot and a DSLR. The D3000 includes 10.2 megapixels of resolution, and it offers a built-in "teaching guide," which will help those making the transition learn more about using a DSLR. It will cost about $600, which seems to be a great introductory price, and it will include an 18-55mm starter lens.
The D300s is aimed at professionals, and it will carry a price of about $1,800 for the camera body only. Beyond its 12.3 megapixels of resolution, the D300s also includes an HD video mode and a continuous shooting mode of 7 frames per second.
The two new lenses are the 18-200mm VR ($850) and the 70-200mm VR ($2,400). Both include image stabilization technology, and they'll be available in the fourth quarter of 2009.
