saeba77: image the same quality sensor and similar AF in a mirrorless body as the A6xxx.Damn if only Nikon making that not cannibalize his own market:(
So, Nikon should offer a mirrorless just so some can benefit from cheaper lenses and used market?
Why not just buy A6XXX?
ManInTime: My Wish list for Nikon's up and coming serious mirror-less lineup (Add your idea's in the comments below) 1. the same high resolution, great detail, low light performance and great dynamic range we all know and love from their DSLR's. 2. connectivity to as many existing Nikon lens as possible (i know this would be a problem... but one can dream)3. built in VIEWFINDER, if there's one big disappointment from the DL's is the lack of built-in viewfinder, which most enthusiasts and pro's love so much. fix that Nikon and we will be VERY happy. 4. Good battery life compared to its peers. Nikon, please be the first to introduce new standards in mirror-less battery life, aim for more then 600 shots!5. small size low weight6. tilt flip touchscreen on all future models 7. fast autofocus system, with good low light capabilities. 8. around 1200$ kit for a mid-range model, and 1800$ for semi-pro. there's much more to say, i will let other users add some idea's :)
It's your wish list.And only yours.
Sonyshine: To all those folks who deny photography is a middle aged male hobby may I suggest you study the group of middle aged male Nikon executives above....
....then ask Nikon where are the rebellious young designers? The creative women?
>Well Abe did his best to legislate to increase women in the Japanese workforce. He at least recognised its a problem.
Abe's as knowledgeable as a monkey.
Franz Weber: That is sad. I will never buy a camera from an asian manufacturer again.
Samsung doesn't sell their cameras in Japan. Even their smartphones aren't advertised as a Samsung product. If they did, their smartphones wouldn't sell either.
elefteriadis alexandros: Slowly we start to pay the ''made in china'' effect.
Parts made in China, perhaps?
I wish Nikon had followed up COOLPIX A, with a zoom lens and better AF.DLs are fine, but they're no COOLPIX A replacement.
endofoto: Olympus has just killed those 1'' sensor point and shoot like too expensive cameras with pen-F. D500 wont sell much although it is very good. Bec you have D7200 for birding. Pros wont use it for other purposes than birding. Pros will buy an extra D750 to carry to weddings instead of D500. If D500 was a fullframe it would sell enormously but it would kill D750. This is a show business to prove that I can do what Canon can do or cant do. For birding pros are changing to 3/4 systems, bec the long lenses are very small and you dont get neck disk hernia. Nikon has to produce a new mirrorless full frame, cheap and low weight around 1300 bucks to kill its rivals especially Sony.
It might not fit your needs, but it does answer to the needs of many others.
justmeMN: It looks like Nikon is on a roll. Those appear to be some really nice cameras.
If you mean mirrorless, that's no innovation.
Wrong partner.Although I can't think of a correct partner.
Digimat: Look, Canon (and nikon), a robust mirrorless camera that nativley takes the existing lenses. Exactly what many working pros would love and buy.
So you say.
Full-frame prototype displayed in 2001 wasn't 'unnamed'. It was tentatively named 'K-1'.
That's one reason why I was surprised to hear that this full-frame DSLR will be released as K-1.
Flashback: Pentax now joins Nikon and Canon, in defiantly ignoring the mirrorless movement. I think we know where we stand now.
If you love mirrorless so much, you should quit hopping around Pentax, Nikon and Canon pages, and stick to Sony, Fuji, Olympus, Pana, Samsung and Leica pages. They already offer what you desire.
Like I always say: Everyone has an idea for a sure-to-be-a-top-selling-camera-of-all-time that no one else would ever buy.Ideals and usage vary too much between users.Users themselves acquire more knowledge and skill over time, so a perfect camera bought 5 years ago wouldn't feel so perfect now.
Jack Simpson: USB 2.0 :o Well, that makes official …. I'm staying with Pentax :)
Perhaps they made a smart management decision by avoiding competition with Sony. Tackling Canikon is a better bet.
vesa1tahti: What is actually better compared with D7200 ? IQ ? No pop up flash. Lower pixel count. Only speed and 4K. No thanks, I'll keep my D7200.
If you have to ask, don't bother to waste your money on it.
Tyr-Sog: Wish there was a version without the flip screen, touch screen, and video for a little less $$$.
I never understood why anyone would want to shoot video with a DSLR either.Tilt-screen is also a downer for me.
James Booba: The second a6000 successor is out noone will care bout D500. Pretty dissapointing.
Sony can pour a thousand successors to A6000, but I won't take notice. Totally different category from D500.
dougster1979: The question is what will they call the next camera.....eh D600,, D700. Will they regret leaving out the D400.
D4 must be unlucky then.
Finally, a Nikon worth serious consideration.Although I don't care too much for touch & tilt screen.
