Nikon large sensor mirrorless camera is a possibility

Similar to the answer Nikon executives gave to AP in an interview last week, Toshiaki Akagi (Department Manager in Nikon's 1Designing Department) told dpreview that a new large sensor mirrorless cameras is a possibility in the future:

"We know that there is a certain body of demand for larger sensors in mirrorless products. Although we already have the 1 inch sensor in the 1 System, we don't want to deny the possibility of future large-sensor mirrorless cameras. So maybe if there is enough demand we may be able to provide another type of mirrorless camera with larger sensors. This is one of the solutions."

Few other points from the interview:

  • 4k video is coming to the Nikon DSLR lineup
  • "You can expect some new DX lenses in the future. We haven’t forgotten about our DX customers"
  • Nikon is still "studying the demand" for a D300s replacement
  • Nikon is also "studying" the possibility of a D3X successor (D4s body with a high MP sensor)

Update: Nikon D750 now in stock at Amazon.

Nikon Japan published another apology that the 1 Nikkor 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6 lens is not yet available because of the large demand from customers (they issued a similar note for the V3 camera back in July). The lens was supposed to start shipping on June 26th, but I have not seen any lenses in the US yet (a batch was received in Europe over a month ago). Update: apparently there was a shipment in the US back in June.

At a recent interview at Photokina with Amateur Photographer Nikon defended their Nikon 1 system and the lack of large sensor mirrorlesss camera. Nikon did not exclude the possibility of a new high-end professional mirrorless system:
