Is this the beginning of the end for F-mount?

The suspect is big that the new Z-mount will mark the beginning of the end for the F-mount. This is something Olympus has already done (killing their FT DSLR line) and Sony is likely to do soon too (killing the A-mount development).

I suspect that it will take 4-5 years before Nikon will stop doing F-mount cameras. What do you think?

in five years from now...

Nikon Z7 sensor “will be better than the D850”

Not sure how reliable this info is. But a source at Xitek claimed this:

“Just spoken to a franchise director at LCE, apparently Thursday will be a very exciting day indeed.
The adapter for the new mirrorless camera will pretty much be free when bought with either model, and the adaptor will make upto 400 lenses compatible so that’ll make all lenses with either electronic or mechanical apertures compatible.
The sensor will be better than the D850 owing to how they’ve constructed the diodes and the way it’s capturing more light, and the new range of lenses will have fresnel elements to give an ‘effective’ larger aperture (so I was told a 1.8 Will be marketed as 1.8 but behaves like a 1.4, and be tiny) much like their new 300mm that shrunk.
Pre orders coming Thursday to ship mid November”
Just chatting with the LCE branch manager, he said that obviously Thursday will be a very exciting day.
