The plot thickens: Nikon just registered the “NIKONOS” trademark


Another very interesting development: similar to the NOCT trademark, two weeks ago (on July 31st) Nikon also registered the "NIKONOS" trademark which was already expired back in 2008. This is what is listed under "goods and services":

"Cameras; optical apparatus and instruments; photographic apparatus and instruments; digital cameras; camera lenses; digital camera lenses; lens filters; rechargeable batteries for cameras and digital cameras; battery chargers for cameras and digital cameras; straps for cameras and digital cameras; caps for camera bodies; computer software; lens caps; camera cases; USB cables; audio video cables; LCD monitor covers; instruction manuals in electronic format; electronic publications."


Just a reminder that Nikon already had a waterproof mirrorless digital camera (Nikon AW1):


Update - for the younger [NR] audience, Nikonos was the name of an underwater camera system from Nikon:
