DF2 Future
2

Within the interview about Nikon pursuing a FF Mirrorless, the first and larger part talks about the DF and future DF possibility. The translation is really rough, but I took away a few things.

The sensor was deliberately chosen for its lower resolution to work better with older lenses and the D4 sensor happened to be the one available for it. Also, that if a future model were to come out, a lower resolution sensor say the D5 sensor might be chosen over the D750. Again, this is my interpretation of a really spotty translation.

Maybe a stretch but it seems the he might be saying that the D750 tech would be used this time, not the D610... could mean 51 point AF. Also lighter and thinner frame and or smaller size?

Also,, I think that it's clear from this Nikon doesn't feel it sold well and that if people want to see a new model, lol, they need to go buy up the rest of the existing cameras.

Google translate version (awful)

Be interested to see what others might get from translating it. The first part is a lot to do with his own DF mods, and interesting read in itself.
