Nikon says yes to APS-C mirrorless but doesn’t disclose if it will use Z-mount or not…

Dpreview interviewed two Nikon managers. They made quite a cryptic statement about possible APS-C mirrorless cameras:

I cannot disclose our plans but for today I can say that since we launched the Z series, our DX format DSLR users have been asking us to apply mirrorless technology to the DX format as well. If we employ APS-C sensors [in mirrorless] maybe the system can be made even smaller. So as we go along, we’ll listen to the voices of our customers.

Sounds like they might use a new mount for APS-C mirrorless?

Nikon Z7 sensor gets tested by DxOmark

DxOmark published the Nikon Z7 sensor test results:

It’s interesting that the Nikon Z 7’s sensor produces results that are similar but not identical to the D850’s. It’s possible that some of the differences can be attributed to the presence of phase-detection autofocus pixels on the imaging sensor.

The Z 7 performs well across the board, and the combination of a high pixel count (which enables it to record a lot of detail) and the sensor’s excellent color depth means that it is capable of producing images that are very pleasing to the eye. Factor in the excellent dynamic range, and the Z 7 looks like a good choice of camera for landscape photographers, wedding photographers, and keen amateurs alike.
