Some interesting rumors from CES - Nikon's upcoming mirrorless camera is rumored to have a new Z-mount:

  • Designed for full frame mirrorless cameras
  • External diameter: 49mm
  • Flange focal distance: 16mm

Keep in mind that "Z-mount" may not be the final marketing name, but I believe the dimensions are right.

For comparison, here are the dimensions of the Nikon F and Sony E mounts:

Nikon F-mount

  • External diameter: 44 mm
  • Flange focal distance: 46.5 mm (more info on flange focal distance can be found here)

Sony E-mount:

  • External diameter: 46.1 mm
  • Flange focal distance: 18 mm
