After reading similar posts on the various systems and current developments, now reading this brings home just how important it is that Nikon move with alacrity fully to the mirrorless format, with lenses etc.

Mirrored dslr's are generally finished in the market going forward.

It really appears that Nikon needs to pivot to full mirrorless systems swiftly. The costs of the mirrored systems will weigh the company down, saddle them with costs that such as Sony and Panasonic do not have.

(CIPA) In Jan-July, 1,146,277 DSLRs were shipped, with a value of 49,320,375,000 yen, Nikon can't afford to give their DSLR business to Canon.

Those DSLR's could as well be mirrorless. There will be a point at which a large drop off will occur. Maybe I am incorrectly estimating the timeline.

There is another facet of the discussion.

It is clear that Sigma and Tamron are enjoying significant profits in lenses from the F Mount. Also, generally reviewers are saying that the Z mount lenses are better than their F Mount counterparts.

Maybe it makes sense to end the selling of F Mount bodies and giving away the jam? i.e. change the playing field.

Just a thought.
