Early this year Nikon announced their new lineup of compact cameras that falls under its DL family. The cameras were originally pegged for a release in March, but it seems that they still have yet to be released, and now a report from Mirrorless Rumors has revealed that would-be customers will have to wait even longer.
According to the listing on Amazon for the Nikon DL cameras, the retailer has them pegged for a release on the 30th of June, which in itself is already a delay from its original intended release in March. However Mirrorless Rumors now claims that they have heard from their sources that the cameras will now ship in late September or possibly even in early October!
This is quite a huge delay as that is about 3-4 months from Amazon’s release date of June. That being said, Nikon has yet to officially comment on whether or not the cameras are delayed, so take it with a grain of salt for now, but either way we guess maybe you shouldn’t get your hopes up just yet, at least not until we get the official word.
For those unfamiliar, the Nikon DL represents Nikon’s new take on compact cameras and seems to be bringing the fight to Sony’s RX100 series of compacts with 1-inch sensors. There are several variants of the DL cameras to choose from, with each model feature a different set of lenses.
