Nikon’s press office has issued an announcement that the next generation of professional Nikon FX-format cameras, the Nikon D5 is ‘in development’.


No details of the camera have been released and no product images are available. We don’t know when it’s coming; nor how much it will cost. All we know is the following: ‘This next-generation professional camera will offer a higher level of performance and advanced accessories, alongside the rich lineup of existing Nikkor lenses. Through this combination, Nikon is pursuing further possibilities of innovation for imaging expression.’

Announced simultaneously is a new Wireless Transmitter WT-6 and Speedlight SB-5000, which will be positioned at the top of Nikon’s Speedlight range. They are also ‘in development’ and will complement the anticipated flagship DSLR.

We’ll post further information as it becomes available.
