Anyone any good at translating Japanese speech ?

"This new mount is Nikon's response to the challenges of the future."

Apparently it will solve the environmental and greenhouse gas problems,
pretty impressive.

"Gateway to a New Dimension" .....

Looks like it will also have warp drive, teleporters, worm holes, or stargates too !

Interesting post here: https://www.nikonrumors.co/roundup-r...-release-date/ showing the huge new mount, and physical "goldilocks" sizing of the body in comparison to Nikon's own D850, and the Sony A7rIII .......

Nikon marketing is definitely warping into a new dimension here.
Leica's 3D claim for the Noctivid seems quite modest in comparison.

The mount looks really big on the comparison photos.
Edge sharpness will probably be as good as MFT with those new
lenses. Lightyears more expensive though, probably.

It had want to be good. Not just matching the competition good - but moving the game on good. Significantly.

From what we know so far, I'm not sure that is possible with what they are going to deliver.

Also, with that large grip it should handle very well with large lenses, but even with the smallest (or pancake even) lenses it still won't be at all pocketable as a walk around travel cam ....

I honestly don't know why manufacturers don't come up with a 'transformer' style horizontal grip ?? They seem to have the attachment, connection, functionality, and weather proofing down pat with their vertical grip accessories - so it's just a matter of deciding to do it

Cool

New Nikon FF Mirrorless cameras to be called:
Z6 - 24MP, high speed, low light (aka Sony A9 competitor?)
Z7 - 45MP, (aka Sony A7R III competitor?)

Sensors are CMOS - no mention of BSI or Stacked architecture.

3 lenses will also be announced on the 23rd August:
24-70 f4
50 f1.8
and an f1.8 wideangle of either 24, 28, or 35mm.

https://www.nikonrumors.co/nikon-z6-...rd-w-3-lenses/


Also - soon after will come the announcement of the new Z-NOCT-NIKKOR 58mm f0.95

https://www.nikonrumors.co/z-noct-ni...nnounced-soon/

So the original mail as reported in my OP was pretty close to the mark then.
Strange naming convention for the Nikon FF Mirrorless models don't you think?
