In less than a week, Nikon’s new mirrorless cameras will be officially announced. Assuming the rumors are true, we can expect two mirrorless cameras to be announced alongside new lenses. Now thanks to a source of Nikon Rumors, here’s what we might be able to expect from Nikon in 2018 and 2019.
According to their source, Nikon is expected to launch two mirrorless cameras this year in the form of the Z6 and Z7 that we have heard about previously. There will also be three lenses announced at launch which include the 24-70mm f/4 and 50mm f/1.8, along with a wide-angle model which at the is still up for debate, but it seems to range between 24mm to 35mm.
Come 2019, if you were hoping for more Nikon Z camera models to choose from, it seems that 2019 will not bring about new cameras. Instead it appears that 2019 will focus on new lenses and accessories, such as a Nikon Z Speedlight flash unit, a Nikon Z grip/booster, and 4-5 new Nikkor-Z lenses with a couple of zoom options.
Many are understandably excited about what Nikon has in store for photographers. The company’s previous mirrorless outings were less than stellar and were almost disappointing, but if the reports are true, Nikon is getting “serious” with its upcoming launch and it remains to be seen if it has what it takes to compete with Sony, who is pretty much the undisputed king when it comes to mirrorless cameras.
