This week is looking extremely interesting on the announcements front. We are expecting the Panasonic LX100 Mk. II, as I covered in an earlier article on Friday, but next Thursday is likely to see a much more important release — of the two new Nikon mirrorless cameras with the rumoured Z mount. There is likely to be a 24MP, said to be called the Z6, majoring on high-speed and low-light photography while the 45MP Z7 is the one for ultimate detail and resolution. There will also be several new lenses but with an emphasis on high-performance professional primes.
Nikon has been teasing us for weeks, so the camera had better be good…..
After Sony’s announcement this week that it holds the largest share of the US mirrorless market, the Nikon entry cannot come too soon. Some would say the horse has already bolted and that Nikon should have paid more attention to the stable door years ago. However, there is no denying that this announcement is a major bit of news and we will all be looking forward to the juicy details.
There is also likely another camera from a leading manufacturer to come during the week but I can’t comment on that at the moment. All will be revealed in due course.
