This is the second time this week Nikon have teased us with details surrounding the impending release of a full-frame, FX-format, mirrorless option. They have remained tight-lipped with regards to any details about camera specifications or even model names/numbers.
New Details about the Nikon Full-Frame Mirrorless Camera and Lens Announcement
Here's what we have been able to extract from this morning's press release:
- Nikon intends to release a full-frame, Nikon FX-format, mirrorless camera with a NEW mount
- To match the new mount Nikon are developing NEW NIKKOR lenses
- The camera's design and technology will draw heavily from Nikon's digital-SLRs
- A NEW mount adaptor is in the works adding compatibility with F-Mount NIKKOR lenses
- Details, including the release date and suggested retail price, will be shared at a later date.
Nikon is clearly ramping up for a big release. Photokina 2018 is rapidly approaching so we expect more details to be trickled out to the public over the coming weeks and months; given Photokina is the world's largest photographic and imaging event we're guessing the camera will be on display.
Only just visible the Travel of Light teaser trailer hints at what we assume is the silhouette of the new camera:

As soon as details about pricing become available you'll be able to pre-order the camera through Clifton Cameras with a £5 deposit. The £5 deposit will secure your camera and is put towards the final purchase price. If you change your mind it is fully refundable.
