According to a press release, Nikon has revealed that they are indeed developing a new next-gen mirrorless camera. “The new mirrorless camera and NIKKOR lenses that are in development will enable a new dimension in optical performance with the adoption of a new mount. The system is the result of Nikon’s unsurpassed optical and manufacturing capabilities gained through more than a century of imaging expertise.”
They add, “Proven reliability and trusted performance are core traits of Nikon Digital-SLRs, and decades of feedback from professional creators around the world has further contributed to the development of this system. Through the development of this new mirrorless camera, Nikon reaffirms our commitment to providing photographers with the ability to capture images that are richer and more vivid than ever before.”
Nikon also reveals that a new F-mount adapter is being developed which seems to corroborate the rumors that the new mirrorless cameras could use a new Z-mount. Nikon claims that additional details will be shared at a “later date”, but a recent datamine of its website has revealed that the company might make an announcement on the 23rd of August.
