It seems that Nikon dealers in Europe (or at least Germany) have received notification that the Nikon F6 has now officially been laid to rest, along with the Nikon D5 DSLR, the Nikon SB-300 speedlight, the Nikkor Ai-S 50mm f/1.2 and Nikkor 24mm f/2.8 lens. It seems that a lot of manual Ai-S and AF-S DX Nikkor lenses are also now listed as discontinued on the Nikon Japan website. Interestingly, though, the F6 isn’t listed as discontinued there.
This is either great news or terrible news depending on how you look at it, but Nikon Japan has moved Nikon’s legendary AF-S Nikkor 200mm f/2G ED VR II lens into the list of discontinued products.
On the one hand, this might mark the beginning of Nikon’s transition away from their higher-end F-Mount equipment to put more focus into their mirrorless lens lineup. On the other, it might mean we’re finally about to see the 200mm f/2E FL ED VR that was teased in a Nikon promo a year ago.
According to the Nikon Japan website, both the Nikon D610 and Nikon D810 DSLRs have now been officially moved over to the discontinued list. Rumours of the D610 not seeing a replacement model go back as far as last December, and with it being added to the discontinued list now without a new model being announced, it looks like this is the end of the line for the D6x0 series bodies.
The Nikon D810 has also been discontinued, which isn’t much of a surprise. While the D810 is still a pretty formidable camera, many have switched the D850 or the Z7 (essentially a mirrorless continuation of that line), so dropping it is pretty logical in this case.
After 33 years, Polaroid Spectra film is about to be discontinued. Polaroid Originals has just announced that it will no longer produce it, and if you want to stock up, the final batch is now on sale. After the last batch is sold out, you will no longer be able to buy Spectra film, neither color nor black and white.
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.
