Rumours are flying around that Nikon is readying two new mirrorless full-frame cameras for 2018. This is supposedly to counter the rise of Sony in the mirrorless camera market.
Nikon Rumours did not say if the new cameras will share features with Nikon’s current DSLR lineup. Instead, there are two sensor resolutions being bandied about; a 24–25 MP sensor and the other a 45-48 MP sensor. The company is also researching a more ergonomic grip.
Other speculated features include support for both XQD/SD Express memory cards, 5-axis in-body stabilisation, 9 fps shooting and a new 55-mm mirrorless mount. The new mount is reported to allow for f/0.95 lenses for the new system.
Talking about a new mount, three lenses are said to be on offer right out of the gate: 24–70mm, 35mm and 50mm. Nikon may also introduce an adapter to fit FX lenses onto the new camera. Lastly, it is being suggested that the camera will have a starting sticker price of US$ 3,000 (RM 12,139) for the 24MP model and US$ 4,000 (RM 16,186) for the 45MP model.
