Nikon APS-C Mirrorless Camera With Silent AF Mode

We have already published a patent that Nikon working on 18-135mm APS-C Mirrorless lens with Silent AF Motor.  Now, we have one more patent that clearly says Nikon is working more to improve the AF noise generated by the lenses by limiting the AF speed of the AF motor.

Nikon APS-C Mirrorless to have Silent Mode and Normal AF Mode

Don’t get confused with DSLRs in camera silent mode, for example I have used Nikon D850 DSLR silent mode in which camera uses the electronic shutter to capture images and same in the case of Nikon new Z6 and Z7 Mirrorless camera, if you select  silent mode in nikon Z7 camera the shutter slap noise will be reduce while using electronic shutter, however in LED light lights some banding issues may appear while using silent shutter.

The new patent reveals silent AF Mode, in Silent AF mode camera will limit the AF speed to minimize the noise of the AF motor.

The silent AF lenses coming for Nikon APS-C Mirrorless camera and very soon the tech will be also implemented in FF Mirrorless camera.

    I was part of Nikon community for almost 50 years, starting with Nikkormat FTN, finishing with D7000.
    About 7 years ago I went to Fujifilm and bought X-E2, as it performed as well as D7000 with body about 0.45 kg compared to about 0.75kg for Nikon.
    APS-C model, to be a success, needs to be technically advanced of course, but must be compact and light too.
    IMHO, Nikon’s APS-C body must be within 0.5kg in order to win me back and I’d love to come back since I still have more Nikkors than Fujinons.
    Of course, new APS-C Nikon must be able to accommodate most older Nikkors F lenses, preferably even screw driven AF lenses, let alone AF-S ED-G lenses. It needs IBIS and it needs an excellent AF.
    But it must be light and compact as well.

    Upcoming Nikon APS-C Mirrorless camera don’t butil-in AF Motors. But, the DX Lens adapters will have.

    “Upcoming Nikon APS-C Mirrorless camera don’t butil-in AF Motors. But, the DX Lens adapters will have.”
    I hope so.
    When I checked Z6 and Z7 adaptor for older F mount lenses, screw driven AF lenses are not covered (no motor in adapter) and one has to manually focus.
