Last year, Nikon was rumored to working on a new new full frame mirrorless camera , and now, the new Nikon “N1514″ is registered at the Indonesian communications agency. According to the latest rumors from NR, it could be the high-end mirrorless camera (maybe full-frame?)

According to NikonRumors, this new mirrorless camera could have a new large image sensor, and there would be two different models announced: one is prosumer and the other is professional.

Nikon doesn't need to do much, they just need to create a small mirrorless body with a large sensor. Basically a Df, minus the mirror, physically smaller and modular. The base body should be FM2 sized. It'd be the perfect complimentary body for the DSLR user or travel photographer.

They can even keep the same flange distance, no need to adapt other lenses outside the F mount. By doing so they can keep the lenses small, unlike Sony that has small bodies, but huge lenses that defeats the purpose of a smaller mirrorless camera.

I agree, Df minus the mirror would be an outstanding start. I would buy one. And then it would be up to us to choose small lenses from among the many, many that are already available (and that we already own), if we wanted to keep the overall camera+lens package small.
