Nikon Teases Their Coming Mirrorless Lumix G9 Replica
Last week Nikon made it official by announcing they were finally going to start producing a serious, high-end mirrorless camera. I knew it was coming. As I’ve said to the naysayers that mirrorless will never be as good as the traditional DSLR’s, “You guys sound just like the same folks who said digital will never replace film.” It’s inevitable and Nikon is proving that.
And as is typical Nikon, I’m sure it will be an amazing camera with a full frame sensor that will require full frame lenses. It’s the full frame lenses that will keep me firmly in the Micro Four Thirds camp for most, if not all, of my camera tools. It’s possible I might like to see what the new Nikon will do with a fixed wide angle like a 24mm F/1.4. That would still be small enough to possibly justify getting one for a larger sensor to shoot landscapes and night skies. We shall see. Amazing it’s taken this long.
One last thing that’s pretty interesting. Does anyone else think this silhouette of the new Nikon mirrorless looks awfully similar to the Lumix G9? I think it’s a dead ringer.
