I’ve thought for a while now that Nikon might be working on a DX-format APS-C mirrorless camera. It makes a lot of sense for them, given that they don’t have a separate line of APS-C cameras, as Canon does with the EOS M series. Now, a new design registration for a new mirrorless APS-C camera seems to confirm it.
Nikkei reports that Nikon is planning to release a new mirrorless model during the 2019 fiscal year. Specifically, a lower midprice model that sits below the Z6 and will have a retail cost of around $900. And Nikkan Kogyo Shimbun, a newspaper specialised in Japanese manufacturer, reports that Nikon’s new CEO, Mr Umadate, says that Nikon will also be releasing a Flagship mirrorless camera equivalent to the Nikon D5 DSLR.
