Exclamation Earlier than expected ??

According to the latest Nikon Rumour, the FF Nikon Mirrorless could be:
* announced before Photokina 2018,
* shown at Photokina 2018, and
* released about a month later in October 2018 ......

They also say that it will use the Z mount and have a "Very sophisticated new F-mount adapter"

Woo-Hoo ?? Curiouser and curiouser

More sophisticated than the FT1 for the Nikon1? Probably means it offers AF-C from the start.

We'll have to wait until Spring 2019, according to Nikon themselves:

Vespo, that's the same interview source mail that Optiholic posted about in post#98, and I posted (from a different gatekeeper) in post#100.

Now from Nikon Rumours (original source for my post#101) comes further mail that says the new Nikon Mirrorless (FF) will be announced before Photokina 2018, and .....
"The new Nikon mirrorless camera will definitely be on display at Photokina in September"
https://nikonrumors.com/2018/05/04/n...scenario.aspx/

I suppose this is well and truly "by" Spring 2019 ....... :)

Certainly if it is fully ready, it would be prudent to beat (or at least match) Canon to the punch.

It looks like being a strange 'everything to everyone' type animal ..... rumoured to have 2 electric motors in it ......

I would say that would be absolutely mandatory!

I wonder if they will go with at least 2 adapters -
one for the recent electronic lens owners, and ...
another for the older mechanical aperture and screw drive crowd?

From a Nikon company that gave us a long list of F lenses incompatible with the FT1 on the Nikon J5? Let's hope it has learned a lesson.

Smile Announcement before the end of July?

An announcement could be due in a few weeks according to the rumour mill ..... two mirrorless cameras (hi- and lower res), 'Z' mount? , and 3 lenses to suit ..... oh, and a fair chunk of money too ......

I hope the EVF is 3.6MP (not dots) - hard to see how it would meet Nikon's criteria for excellence otherwise, especially given Sony has come out with a ~2MP one https://m.dpreview.com/news/68570111...finder-display

I seem to recall a prototype research unit (I think it was a French mob?) a few years ago that was around ~4 or ~5MP, so I had hoped for better by Nikon. The proof will come if it has zero blackout and in-viewfinder histogram and focus peaking .....

The 9fps hardly sets the world alight either .....

No mention of an adapter available at this early stage, but jeez, you want to hope it was included for that price ! I would think it is a must have for launch time .......

Unhappy Nikon 1 system Officially Discontinued ..... :(

It's Official ! ...... Nikon 1 is no more .....
https://www.dpreview.com/news/398910...y-discontinued

This may free up needed resources for the launch of Nikon's new Mirrorless FF (to be followed by the DX).

I can't help but think that they should have doubled down and made it into all that it could be ..... :(

Perhaps after the new Mirrorless launches, they will renew the "1" series with truly revolutionary curved stacked BSI CMOS sensor tech, computational photography processing, fast diffractive optics, CFRP materials, transformer style ergonomics, and the type of connectivity Gen Z demand. Maybe this will be a prototype developed which will not only stick it to MFT, but serve as a testbed for a new generation of curved FF and DX systems ! (Lol. I'm obsoleting the nascent Nikon flat sensor FF Mirrorless system before it's even arrived! - Steve Jobs would be proud :)

Why would any of the current camera leaders obsolete themselves by launching a curved sensor?
Afaik, it does not solve any real problems, the chromatic aberration is still there, the only benefit is to reduce the demands on the lens designer somewhat. Should Canon and Nikon spend heavily to make it easier for the Chinese competition??
Perhaps the future could be in optical wave front reconstruction rather than in curved sensors.
