Nikon Sweden executive: no new full frame cameras in October

Swedish Nikon executive Lasse Pettersson answered this question during a live Q&A interview yesterday about the new Nikon mirrorless cameras (about 22:45 minutes into this clip):

Reporter: "The question everybody asks; when will the D4 or D800 be released?
Lasse Pettersson: [Jokingly] "Later!"
Reporter: "Will they be announced at the event in October?"
Lasse Pettersson: "No, I do not believe so."

This is also the info I have been receiving.

    Reporter: “Will they be HAVE BEEN announced EVER?”
    JET: “No, I do not believe so.”

    … & WHAT ABOUT THE SINGLE LENGTH LENSES at f/1,8 or f/2,0????????

    ´THANKS´ for letting us wait for further unspecified period of time, unlike the bodies, the application on new lens is more then justified considering the date of the issuance of the ´current´generation …!!!

  • Thank God!
    Now I can go and buy D700 without any worry about instant release of D800 after that.

  • Dweeb

    If all they’re going to do is put 18MP in a D700, bump the price a thousand bucks, and keep that one on the market 5 years, then who cares?

    • Sounds like a bargain — and a sweet buy — to me.

      Sign me up.

      There’s no way a megapixel increase will be the only thing changed.

      It will have to have a lot of video options to compete with Canon, then they’ll be all the other bits like improved dynamic range, less noise at higher ISO, faster focusing, etc.
