Full-frame mirrorless cameras are usually perceived as being expensive because generally speaking, professionals are the ones who can probably appreciate the full-frame sensor more than the average hobbyist photographer. However if an entry-level full-frame camera is something you might be interested in, Nikon could have something for you in 2019.
According to Nikon Rumors, they have heard that Nikon could be planning on launching a new DSLR in 2019 in the form of the Nikon D760. This camera is said to act as an entry-level full-frame camera (no word on how much that will cost) and will come with features like 4K video. Considering that the Nikon D750, the predecessor to the D760, costs close to $1,400, we imagine that the D760 won’t stray too far from that price.
The report also goes on to claim that there will be some physical design changes, such as the ISO button being relocated near the shutter release, the AF-ON button added to the back, but for the most part it is expected to still have the same knob AF control options as the Nikon D810.
There will also be a change in the number of AF points, but details on that are scarce at this point in time, although it is expected to be improved upon. Take it with a grain of salt for now, but with CP+ taking place early next year, it seems like it could be a good place for Nikon to make an announcement.
