Nikon patent applications...
Feb 22, 2005

Hmmm. Looks like we might be seeing some sort of DSLR with an LCD preview coming from Nikon in the future. I was searching US patent applications, and found this one:

http://appft1.uspto.gov/netacgi/nph-Parser?Sect1=PTO2&Sect2=HITOFF&u=%2Fnetahtml%2FPTO%2Fsearch-adv.html&r=21&p=1&f=G&l=50&d=PG01&S1=nikon&OS=nikon&RS=nikon

which decribes some sort of autofocus system for a DSLR camera, involving an image projected through the lens and redirected onto an image sensor seperate from the main image capturing sensor, for the purpose of displaying a preview image on an LCD screen.

The application was filed in March, 2004. Of course there is no guarantee that we'll ever see such a camera, but I thought it was interesting, anyway. More research needed.
