Nikon mirrorless camera rumors update

Nikon mirrorless camera concept © by Broxibear

I am continuing to update my list of rumored/expected details for the new Nikon mirrorless camera. Here is the new info:

  • Nikon is rumored to target the Sony A7 III with their new mirrorless camera - if true, this will mean they will use a sensor in the 24MP range and a target price around $2,000 - that makes sense because Nikon already has an excellent high MP camera - the D850.
  • The new Nikon mirrorless camera will have features/functions never introduced beforehand (not sure if this applies to Nikon, to mirrorless cameras or to the industry as general). The camera was designed with ergonomics in mind.
  • At least one new mirrorless zoom lens will have power zoom (for video recording).
  • Nikon Japan should soon start sharing information with the parties involved in one month and we should start getting more detailed specifications soon.

B&H now lists the Nikon D850 as available on January 1st, 2100


The situation with the Nikon D850 availability in the U.S. is beyond ridiculous at this point. Nine months after the official announcements, the three major U.S. stores never had the camera in stock. B&H probably got tired of answering the same question over and over and they updated their website to list the Nikon D850 availability as January 1st, 2100. I think it's about time for Nikon USA to come out and say something about this situation.

Update - this was a mistake and B&H already corrected it.

Thanks for the link Michael L!
