Judging from the latest reports, Nikon will kick off the New Year with not one, but four new products. Other than the previously mentioned D780, we could see one more camera and two lenses soon. In fact, it could be as soon as next week.
It’s not quite official, but almost. Nokishita has posted a couple of Nikon Z50 promotional images to Twitter ahead of an official announcement from Nikon. When images like these leak, an actual announcement is almost certainly within a few days away.
Nokishita leaked a not great Z50 photo earlier along with the new 16-50mm APS-C Z mount lens, although it did show something of the camera’s form, which isn’t all that different from the “Z1” photo which got out several months ago. It looks like I called it on the APS-C Z Mount mirrorless, too (despite the “FX” logo on the body).
According to some recent reports, we’re only two days away from the official announcement of the Nikon Z50 and two new Z lenses. And it looks like the Nikon Z 58mm f/0.95 S Noct lens will join the party, too. The latest reports say they will all be launched together, and we now have the expected prices of the upcoming gear.
According to recent reports, Nikon will soon announce a new mirrorless camera, the first APS-C model of the Z series. There hasn’t been much information about the camera so far, but we now know more about the expected specs. And what’s more, the camera may be coming as soon as next week.
After two full-frame mirrorless cameras, Nikon is reportedly launching the first APS-C camera in the Z series. Along with it, it’s set to launch two new zoom DX lenses: a 16-55mm f/3.5-6.3 and a 50-250mm f/4.5-6.3.
The word from CES 2018 is that Nikon’s upcoming mirrorless will have an entirely new lens mount. At least according to Nikon Rumors. Despite simply being a rumour, I can’t believe that this isn’t true. At least the technical specifications, if not the name, which NR suggest may simply be a working title for the new system. It just makes no sense for Nikon to keep the current F-mount system in a new mirrorless design, even if it is the same full frame as their DSLRs.
Some of the specifications for the possible replacement of Nikon D810 were released a while ago. Now there are new updates concerning Nikon D820, and the one that catches most attention is that D820 might have the same autofocus system as Nikon D5. This means 153 focus points, 99 of them being cross type and 55 selectable.
It has been speculated for a while now what could come as a replacement of Nikon D810. One of the possible scenarios is that it might be Nikon D820. It could be the latest upgrade to its predecessor Nikon D800. And one of the most prominent features of this camera could be the 46MP sensor.
In today’s world, everyone likes to dress up words and make them sound more appealing to themselves and the masses. Political correctness is rampant, and we have to be so careful anymore about what we say so as to not offend the sensibilities of others or cast something in a negative light.
Yesterday, various Nikon D800 owners received emails informing them of a free “Nikon Maintenance Service Initiative.” It’s not clear yet whether Nikon is simply being generous, testing equipment for potential persistent issues, or if this is another name for a recall.
