According to anonymous email we have received a while ago, Nikon will soon announce it’s expansion of Nikon 1 series mirrorless camera. Nikon 1 series was developed with three factors 1. Speed, 2.portability and 3. Quality and that will remain the primary features of the upcoming larger sensor based mirrorless system.
So the good thing is Nikon 1 is alive and it will compete against the latest Sony A7 series camera.

Fuji X-T10 was announced on May 18, 2015. The Fuji X-T10 was the trim-out version of X-T1 by having the same sensor and no extensive weather–sealing of the X–T1, the XT-1. The X-A1 production is now completely stopped and the world is waiting for X-T20 announcement.
The Fuji X-T20 announcement is expect sometime in 2017. Take a look at the announcement schedule XT series camera below:
||Date of Announcement
||January 28, 2014
||May 18, 2015
||July 7, 2016
We have seen Fuji took 1+ year to release X-T1 camera. And I think Fuji will maintain the same time frame between these two models, early announcement of X-T20 will affect the sales number of X-T1 as well as X-Pro 2 since both camera shares same sensor.

The lens was tested on Nikon D5300 model by DXO MARK Lab team and hasn’t been tested yet at semi-pro or professional models, but if you look at the test-score of the lens then you will be amazed. The Tokina AT-X 14-20mm F2 PRO DX lens showing overall score of 25 whereas the Nikon AF-S DX NIKKOR 10-24mm f/3.5-4.5G ED Lens scored only 16 Marks.
The most important part of a Lens is apertures, the Tokina 14-20mm features fixed F2 aperture whereas the Nikon 10-24mm lens features variable aperture range of 3.5-4.5. Despite of having constant F2 aperture range the price of Tokina lens is bit less and Tokina is also more sharp compared to the Nikon.
