Nikon has formally announced the development of a full-frame mirrorless camera and Nikkor lenses and confirmed the adoption of a new lens mount.

A press release from the company carries the following information:

The mirrorless camera and Nikkor lenses that are in development have enabled the pursuit of a new dimension in optical performance, with the adoption of a new mount. The mirrorless camera is the result of Nikon’s advanced optical and manufacturing capabilities gained through over a century of heritage, as well as superior image processing technology.

The expertise built up through the development of Nikon’s digital-SLR cameras has also critically contributed to this development. With this new mirrorless camera and Nikkor lenses, we are committed to providing photographers with the ability to capture images that are richer and more vivid than ever before.

Additionally, a new mount adapter is being developed for the new mirrorless camera. This will work with the F-Mount Nikkor lenses that are part of the Nikon digital-SLR system, adding to the variety of choices for photographers.

Nikon will continue to lead imaging culture with the launch of the new mirrorless camera, as well as with the continued development of Nikon digital-SLR cameras, providing consumers with the choices to enjoy the unique values of either system.

Details, including the release date and suggested retail price, will be shared at a later date.
