I think they pop out an APS-C sized mirrorless.... maybe 36mp or whatever the new D850 has. What I do wonder is if it will have stabilization in camera. I'd think not given their DSLR record and lens. It better have dual slots too.

All they hafta do is remove the mirror and prism
viewer and replace it with a built-in EVF. This is
not rockit sci. The live-view is already there, so
instead of locking up a mirror, just delete it, and
the EVF fits in the same shell as the pentaprism.

Acoarst question is, just which model[s] will get
the make-over. 750 seems a good choice.

Looks like I got served some cookies! After looking up the Leica, when next I looked at my Yahoo! news, I found some "news" articles and ads featuring Leica dSLRs. What really was news was that one of these was from, of all places, WalMart ! Who'd 'a' thunk it? Doesn't seem the place to go for a piece of high-end camera gear like that.

i thought the D750 was a full-frame camera, and I don't see Nikon's taking a marketing risk like creating a full-frame mirrorless.

I suspect it will be along the lines of the Sony Alpha a6000 line.
These are APS-C format mirrorless. I am really enjoying my a6000.

Yeah, APS-C and not FF yet (if ever).... in theory it is as simple as Golem explained. Take out this and that, done.... in reality, you won't win that way. Got to remove this and that and then adjust this piece and that and then smush it up and make the body smaller, which means rearrange this and that and so on.

They have a bit of education with the series 1, and can double that and maybe get there. Be interesting to see what they roll out, 1 or more models, size and weight, format, and how it takes off or doesn't. In reality, hope it succeeds or Nikon might flat line. Have to diversify in todays world, so the camera division needs to diversify. A D850 ain't gonna make a big splash and cause revenue jumps.

I think with the α9, they kind of have to go DF.

Damnt strait ! And if they think live view
is all about APS-C, then I really don't give
a ratzass if they DO go under. Don't need
anymore useless hardware.

I'm assuming you speak 35mm, where "DF"
means double frame ? [aka 24x36mm].

And IBIS. No IBIS, no deal. Dirt simple. I can
only care about features that make pictures.
I don't care about conveniencing idiots, nor
about push-button art modes. That stuff is
for bridge cameras. Cool for that, but of no
use on an essential live view tool.

Depends on what they think the current market is. I could see them coming out with a top notch APS-C body, packed with features to compete and beat the latest mirrorless from Olympus (E-M1 mkII) and Panasonic (GH5) and Fuji (XT-2)... and if so, then they are targeting a certain set of photographers and pros.

But they could go with the FF sensor and do the same. If they did FF out of the gate, better get it dang near perfect. Be one of not too darn many times they wouldn't compete with Canon on a 1:1 basis... since Canon doesn't have one yet (but they do a smaller sensor).

The stabilization piece I'm not sure of how they would care to play that. Fuji doesn't have it in their mirrorless bodies, and can't, and Fuji is coming out with top notch lenses that don't have it either, which is 'different' (one of the only things I don't really like about Fuji's line). Nikon has some great glass (APS-C or FF) and a lot of IS options that users already have and can use... unless they do a dual IS system that allows body and lens to work together to increase the total IS...

Actually, I meant FX. DF is a camera model. I dunno. I'm no longer motivated to keep up with Nikon's alphabet soup. I long for a simpler time. The D300 wowed me enough to upgrade from my D70S, and even then, I miss being able to sync flash at any shutter speed (well, 1/500th with Nikon CLS, but as fast as she'll go with manual strobes). I was thrilled when I could get a second D300 on the used market for less than $500. So I have two, and I'm spoiled, and while I know there are better cameras out there, nothing wows me enough to abandon my D300 cameras.

The D300 is coming up on it's 10 year anniversary since introduction. It's kind of sad that nothing has really impressed me enough to upgrade. Well, not from Nikon. The grass is looking greener in other pastures.

Since I've retired from wedding and portrait photography, smaller, simpler cameras are more appealing to me now. TBQH, film is looking more appealing right now. I'm shooting 50/50 with a D300, and a tinee tiny (but full frame) Olympus XA rangefinder.

A small fixed lens digital could win me over right now. I don't want a P&S with a lens that works like Pinocchio's nose. If Nikon could wow me over with a full frame mirrorless, I'd slap my 50/1.4 AF-D on it and work with it until I got bored.

We'll see. Or we won't. Wouldn't be the first time Nikon's put a kybosh on a planned new line of cameras (cough - DL - cough).
