First set of rumored specifications for the Nikon mirrorless cameras | Nikon Rumors

Note that I said "cameras" in the title - yes, Nikon is coming up with two mirrorless cameras. Here are the specs that I believe are correct (some numbers could be slightly off or rounded):

  • Two mirrorless cameras: one with 24-25MP and one with 45MP (48MP is also a possibility). I assume both cameras are full frame (I did not get a specific confirmation on that).
  • Similar body size to the Sony a7 camera but with better ergonomics and a better grip.
  • 5-axis in-body stabilization
  • 9fps
  • New mirrorless mount. We already knew that, but the number I was given this time is 55mm. The Z-mount dimensions I reported a few months ago were 49mm for the actual opening and 65.4mm for the entire mount diameter.
  • The new mirrorless mount will allow for f/0.95 lenses - remember the NOCT trademark and f/0.9 lens patents?
  • Memory cards: XQD and CF Express - now this is a surprise for me, but it is what I have heard (ProGrade is coming with a CF Express card).
  • EVF resolution: 3.6MP
  • Initially, three lenses will be announced: 24-70mm, 35mm and 50mm (I think the 35 and 50mm will be f/1.4). There is also talk about a 24mm, but it may come later.
  • Pricing:
    • The 45MP model will be around $4,000/€4,000 in a kit with the 24-70mm lens.
    • The 25MP model will be under $3,000/€3,000 (also with a lens).
  • The official announcement is rumored for the end of July (on or around July 23rd) and shipping shortly after (August 23rd). This is the part I am not sure about because previous tips suggested a Photokina announcement. Maybe we will see the development announcement at the end of July and the official announcement before Photokina. I will try to get a confirmation on the exact announcement date.
I will be getting more information in the next few days and will be able to confirm or update the information provided above.

Nikon developed a lens mount adapter for its previous mirrorless camera (the Nikon 1 Series), so I expect the next one will have one as well.
Luke - I assume you mean a different lens mount than they used in the Nikon 1 series or in their DSLRs (F mount). From what I've read, I think that is likely. I do have to add that I have no technical background so I'm just going on what I've read.

Yes. With the Nikon 1 Series CX lens mount bodies the FT-1 adapter allowed the use of F-mount lenses. Autofocus and VR were supported. Since the multiplier factor was 2.7 my 200mm f2 had the field of view of a 540mm f2 lens. :D

I have read that Nikon will have a "high quality" adapter, but I just can't remember where I saw it. Petapixel, maybe? I'm sure there will be an adapter, the question is cost and how well it works.
