I think the film winder crank on the left puts this over the top for me. Would Nikon really add that bit of useless design for nostalgic giggles?
The mock ups got lost in the text on NR. The only "real" photo is the one of the RH side of the new camera. The other images are just photoshopped with that as the starting point and then a LH side lifted from an FE or something like that, thus the film winder. The creator of the PS images explains it, but it's easy to miss.I think the film winder crank on the left puts this over the top for me.

Looks interesting. Problem is Z lenses are huge and modern, which takes away from the retro look. Old IA lenses and FTZ adaptor seems weird.
I hope it will be awesome, but sometimes I don't get Nikon? They release niche products like the expensive, boutique Nikon 58mm f/.95 NOCT, but then think releasing plastic mounted pancake Z lenses is a good place to save 10 yen or whatever it cost. How does a retro DX body help improve their marketshare?
A statement that is all too true of most corporate decisions with a hint of desperation.If true, this makes zero economic sense.
I would want IBIS and automated focus-shift shooting a-la the Z6 and Z7.
