After some first size estimations and comparisons we made yesterday (see Size comparison) we now have an new image.
So lets get to the new estimations.
Today is Nikons 101st Birthday. And they used this occasion to officially announce the next-generation full-frame mirrorless camera.
It contains the following official confirmations:
The press release:
There are some first size-estimations based on the images we saw.
Nikon wrote on their website:
TRAVEL OF LIGHT
Countless rays of light come together, forming an image at the end of their long journey. Nikon’s ongoing mission heading into the future: to guide light into forming superb pictures.
As always when a company announces something like this, there are rumors, there are fanboys and of course the guys of a competitor flowing through the internet.
The Twitter user @resi_kyoma showed us some leaked pictures of the new camera including one of the new lenses (we expect one zoom lens around 24-70mm f/4 as well as one or maybe two primes)

nokishita-camera.com just found a hint, that the new mirrorless cameras from Nikon will be announced at the 23. August 2018 around 13:00 JST (which means 05:00 CET)
At that time we will see a live stream of the official announcement!
Today Nikon released the first Teaser about their (what we expect) mirrorless camera.
Their website for it can be found on https://events.imaging.nikon.com/live/en/
Their slogan: “TRAVEL OF LIGHT” as well as a very dark video do give a hint, that we can expect exceptional low light capabilities.
Roger Johanson extracted the most interesting part of the video, slowed it down and brightened it up:
As you can see the new camera looks a bit like a Sony A7 series but with a bigger lens mount and a bigger grip. This may will be a big advantage compared to the various mirrorless cameras available, as those are often equipped with a to small grip for bigger hands.
Based on past Nikon announcements we’d expect the next Teaser in around 2-3 days.
More Infos will follow.
