Production of these cameras, which were announced on  23 February, 2016, has been delayed because of disruptions created by the earthquakes that struck the Kumamoto region between 14 and 16 April, 2016. On April 20, Nikon announced that release of the two cameras would be delayed until July as more time was required for software adjustment. A subsequent announcement today  states ‘release of these cameras is now scheduled for October 2016’.
