Nikon to announce a high end compact camera: 16MP DX sensor, fixed 28mm f/2.8 lens, Expeed 2 processor


The dream camera: mockup of Nikon mirrorless camera based on the Fuji X100 done by a reader

I received a very short and crypted tip that Nikon will announce a new compact camera with 16.2 effective megapixels DX-sized CMOS sensor, fixed 28mm f/2.8 (or maybe even f/2.0) lens and EXPEED 2 image processing engine. This could very well be the camera that will be announced this week and I seriously doubt that the D7000 replacement will be introduced as well.

In addition, in 2013 Nikon may also come with a new line of mirrorless interchangeable lens cameras with APS-C sized sensor. Nikon has already filed several patents in the past for DX mirrorless lenses: 18mm f/2.8 lens patent and another patent that describes a 24mm f/2.0 or f/2.8 lens.
