It looks like one chapter for Nikon mirrorless cameras has ended, and the other is about to begin. Nikon 1, the first line of mirrorless cameras from the company, has just been discontinued.
Back in August 2017, Nikon stopped producing the cameras from this lineup, and there were no subsequent models announced. And now it’s officially over: the entire Nikon 1 lineup has been listed as discontinued on the official Japanese website. The same goes for B&H: Nikon 1 has been marked as “currently unavailable,” so you can no longer order it from this website.
As I bet you’ve already heard, Nikon is working on a new line of mirrorless cameras. And it will be not one, but two full frame models. The company has registered a new trademark named “Noct,” which will include digital cameras, lenses, mount adapters, camera and lens mounts, and parts and fittings for all these products.
If you’re really eager to order a Nikon 1 camera, maybe you can find one at some local retailers who still have a couple of them in stock. But if you’re up to buying a Nikon mirrorless camera, perhaps it’s a better solution to wait for their new models, which are supposed to arrive by March 2019.
