|Mr Kazuo Ushida|
So what does this mean , well based off our Google translate result on the article , we can confirm that the mirrorless camera news is in fact true . This also follows some text which describe Nikon's current standing on their Semiconductor business (Lithography) which is mostly to blame for Nikon's recent setback . The company however is said to bring new reforms as it plans to stay competitive in that sector as well . So , what about cameras then , well according to Mr Ushida , the company is planning on focusing on Mid level and professional grade DSLR cameras and reduce the model saturation which would probably narrow down the multiple conflicting models down to a few less , enabling the company to keep their professional users happy , and profits up as R&D and advertising can be saved for other , more important ventures .
As a writer's prediction , we might see the Nikon D610 axed off in favor of continuing the highly successful D700/750 series . The Df , which was the odd duck in Nikon's DSLR lineup , will probably live up to its name - Digital Future in the form of a mirrorless camera as the design and layout perfectly suits the compactness offered by such technology , and Nikon will hopefully include 4K in all of its professional range , including the upcoming D820/850as not including will open a whole new can of worms in this day and age (take this personal prediction with a grain of salt!)
So will Nikon come clean with its Mirrorless ambitions and launch a Mirrorless camera on their Birthday , only time will tell .
