In an interview published few days ago (see here) Nikon representatives told to amateurphotographer.co.uk that Nikon is not in the mood to develop large sensor mirrorless camera, all of our FB fan and website users said that It is one of the worst decision ever made by Nikon.
But today again a new interview surfaced over the web via dpreview.com, in that interview Mr. Toshiaki Akagi – Department Manager in Nikon’s 1st Designing Department of the Development Center in the Imaging Business Unit Nikon said “We don’t want to deny the possibility of future large-sensor mirrorless cameras. So maybe if there is enough demand we may be able to provide another type of mirrorless camera with larger sensors. This is one of the solutions”
Also look at the key points of the interview —
- Introduction of 4K movie function to our DSLR lineup
- Nikon is studying the possible demand of Nikon D300s successor, since many pro-DX format user upgraded to FX format.
- Nikon is also “studying” the possibility / possible demand of a D3X successor D4X
- and finally “You can expect some new DX lenses in the future. We haven’t forgotten about our DX customers”
So it’s nice to see Nikon is atleast not rigid on its decisions and will announce products based on user and market demand.
