Nikon is developing a new mirrorless camera at a “rapid pace”, getting close to the official announcement

The Japanese website SankeiBiz published an article on the current state of the camera industry. There was also a paragraph on Nikon, specifically on their upcoming mirrorless camera:

  • Nikon is developing a new mirrorless camera at a “rapid pace”.
  • Nikon’s new mirrorless camera will be released in the current fiscal year (Nikon’s fiscal year will end in March 2019).
  • There is a hint that the new Nikon mirrorless camera will be shown “at a large-scale overseas exhibition” – I assume this is the 2018 Photokina show in September.

Original quote (Google translation):

Nikon also strong against single lens reflexes also advances the development of mirrorless at a rapid pace and clarifies the policy to release in the current fiscal year. In some cases it will be lazy as “I will show off at a large-scale overseas exhibition” (industry official).

Update – here is a better translation from a reader:

And of course Nikon, who is very strong with dSLRs, is also advancing development of a mirrorless camera at a rapid pace. Nikon intends to begin sales (of their new mirrorless camera) at some point during the current (fiscal) year, it has been revealed. There are also whispers, according to someone connected to the industry, that “surely Nikon will unveil their camera to the public at a major overseas trade show.”
