I am sorry that I did not make myself clear.

This is a direct response to your opinion that "eventually realize DL may not win Panasonic and Sony in the market". What I was trying to say is that this might not be the case for DL18-50 because there is no comparable Panasonic/Sony cameras in this zoom range.

Somebody forgot to tell Nikon.

"February 13, 2017

Nikon announced today that sales of the long-awaited DL series of premium compact camera, the DL18-50 f/1.8-2.8, DL24-85 f/1.8-2.8, and DL24-500 f/2.8-5.6, will be canceled."

Not my quote. But logically, There may be a space for a DL18-50 in the market, a year ago. But the compact market is shrinking dramatically, and Nikon has found itself in a worsening financial position. That is probably the main reason for cancellation of the DL project.
