A newly published patent spotted in China shows the design of a new APS-C Z-mount camera. The main change comapred to FF models is that this one has no EVF. Of course this is just a patent and there is no way to tell if Nikon will really launch such a model.
Sigma will announce their first Full Frame mirrorless “designed” lenses on July 11 at 9am London time! Thos lenses are newly designed lenses for mirrorless only. They are not adaptations of current DSLR lenses. They will be first announced as Sony E and Leica L-mount version. The Nikon Z version will be announced in late 2019.
This is the info posted by SonyAlphaRumors:
These three lenses will be announced:
We know of a fourth lens which will be available in late 2019 but its’ unclear if it will be announced on July 11:
What’s very new with these lenses:
They are exlusively designed for Full Frame mirrorless system (there will be no DSLR version of these)
Sony E-mount and L-mount version will be announced on July 11
Nikon Z and Canon EOS-R versions will be announced later
Some additional info:
14-24mm f/2.8 is smaller than the current DSLR version (here)
The new 35mm f/1.2 lens has:
– Premium construction

They should be available first for Sony E-mount and the L-mount. A Nikon Z version of these should be available from early 2020 on!
At minute 8 of this interview you can hear the Towerjazz say that Nikon shouldn’t rely on Sony sensors only. For example if there is competition on the supply Sony may give themselves the benefit instead of Nikon.
The reliable news site Nikkei reports that Nikon is ready to launch a sub $1,000 mirrorless camera in 2019! This is the google translated text:
Nikon will introduce a new mid-price mirrorless camera product in fiscal 2019. The same interchangeable lens can be used in the product that corresponds to a sister model such as the high-end model “Z7” launched by the company in the autumn of 2006. It is expected that the price will be in the 100,000 yen range, which is easier for the general consumer to pick up than the leading 200,000 to 400,000 yen model. The aim is to develop the demand of users other than existing enthusiasts.
Seem like we will get an Canon RP competitor…
