Not going to happen. Nikon has patents for a lot of things that wont ever see the light of day. In the 90's it might have made sense. Now, not so much.

your entitled to your opinions, however your "engineering nightmare" was a strawman.

a D-filmback would be an innovative way to get film shooters back into buying new Nikon glass and accessories. have a little faith.

That is like designing a car to appeal to covered wagon drivers. Film shooters are not a big enough demographic to be worth the effort.

i agree that there may not ever again be a big enough demographic to build another dedicated F series film camera,  in some parts of the world there's still incentive to build a film back accessory. the way i see it, once the engineering has been done and the back is modular, nikon can also start selling modular backs with new sensor components.

t'would be the most economic way of keeping their promise. JMO.
