What to expect from Nikon for the CP+ show next month

Nikon Rumors
Time for another “what to expect” post for the CP+ show in Japan in February (12th-15th):

Long term expectations/don’t hold your breath rumors:

  • Full frame Nikon mirrorless camera (only based on a patent).
  • Nikon is rumored to be working on a smaller Df-based camera – possible announcement at the end of 2015.
  • If the new 50MP Canon EOS 5DS DSLR camera really has a Sony sensor, Nikon may also use it in the future D810 successor.
  • New camera system with lens and sensor in one unit – something similar to Sony’s lens camera modules (I think Nikon will release something that connects to your smartphone).
  • New Nikkor telephoto lenses with fluorite (FL) element – this is more of a long term goal and it will take few years until they replace all lenses mentioned.
  • Other lens rumors (low probability): 200mm f/4, 16mm f/2.8, fast DX zoom,
  • Update: new Nikkor 24-70mm f/2.8 VR lens designed with video in mind and possibly with Phase Fresnel (PF) element (see patent) – the price is rumored to be $500 more than the current version ($1,886.95)
  • Update: Nikon D5
