Nikon Confirms Development of Full-frame Mirrorless Camera and Lenses (Updated)
By Graham K. Rogers
Full-frame mirrorless camera and NIKKOR lensesWhile the Nikon D850 is still out of stock in the USA (plenty are on sale in Thailand where it is made), a press release - see below - from Nikon has confirmed that it is developing a full-frame, Nikon FX-format, mirrorless camera and NIKKOR lenses featuring a new mount. The release date for the camera will be announced later. That "later" is now said to be 23 August (Dunja Djudjic, DIY Photography). There are some leaked pictures on that site.
Those who are currently using Nikon F-mount DSLR cameras will be able to use these with the new mirrorless camera as a new mount adapter is being developed for the F-mount lenses. This is a useful development as many users have held off making such a switch precisely because of the investment in lenses: this circumvents that problem.
So far there is only a teaser video online with more images anticipated.
Full Press release from Nikon:
Nikon Corporation (Nikon) is pleased to announce the development of a full-frame, Nikon FX-format, mirrorless camera and NIKKOR lenses featuring a new mount.
