I am continuing to update my list of rumored/expected details for the new Nikon mirrorless camera. Here is the new info:

  • Modest MP count – probably 24-28MP BSI sensor (new tech with advanced AF)
  • Nikon is putting a lot of emphases and effort into the shooting experience of the new mirrorless camera (ergonomics, nice grip design, image stabilization, etc)
  • 4K video
  • Price range between $2,000 and 3,000$
  • Two Nikon mirrorless cameras will most likely be announced together, but still not sure about the combo: one full frame and one APS-C or one low MP (24MP?) and one high MP count (48MP?). At least one full frame mirrorless camera is guaranteed.

Update – here are the rumored specifications:

Nikon mirrorless camera specs recap

Previously reported Nikon mirrorless camera rumors:

  • Nikon is rumored to target the Sony A7 III with their new mirrorless camera – if true, this will mean they will use a sensor in the 24MP range and a target price around $2,000.
  • The new Nikon mirrorless camera will have features/functions never introduced beforehand (not sure if this applies to Nikon, to mirrorless cameras or to the industry as general). The camera was designed with ergonomics in mind.
  • At least one new mirrorless zoom lens will have power zoom (for video recording).
  • The official announcement of the new Nikon mirrorless camera is rumored to be shortly before Photokina while shipping is expected to start a month after Photokina (there were already multiple reports for an announcement in the second half of 2018, see this and this post).
  • The new Nikon mirrorless camera will definitely be on display at Photokina in September.
  • I was told that Nikon is currently developing a large number of new mirrorless lenses and this is a priority.
  • New Nikon mirrorless Z-mount – confirmed by multiple sources (could still be called something else).
  • Nikon is putting a lot of R&D in the viewfinder.
  • Very sophisticated new F-mount adapter – also confirmed by multiple sources.
  • Two electric AF motors (no new info).
