For now only the Nikon Z5 camera and Nikkor Z 24-50mm f/4-6.3 lens are confirmed for next week


From my list of upcoming products, it seems that, so far, only the new Nikon Z5 camera and Nikkor Z 24-50mm f/4-6.3 lens are confirmed to be announced next week (July 21). The rest of the items on the list will either be a development announcement or will be introduced at a later date.

Report: “Nikon offers a potential upside of 50%+ from the current stock price”


The financial website SeekingAlpha published an article called "Nikon: Not Only A Camera Company With An Upside Of 50%+" where they claim that "Nikon offers a potential upside of 50%+ from the current stock price":

"Nikon Corporation (OTCPK:NINOY) offers a potential upside of 50%+ from the current stock price of ¥880 or $8.19 for NINOY.
