    Re: Nikon mirrorless finally

    Pretty sure they make adapters for Sony mirrorless cameras.

    Yes and yes the adapters work well with the Fuji. But for wildlife, I still prefer the Dslr.

    Good to hear. If I have to go with a new lens mount to go mirrorless anyway, I might as well keep considering the Fuji then.

    Well, you might want to wait because even if you can use Nikkors on the fuji, the auto-focus is not functional. Now the new Nikon mount with adapter might make the older F mount lenses focus (electronic coupling to activate focus). This is one thing that I don't think Fuji adapters will be able to achieve. But manual focusing with a mirrorless is way easier because you have focus peaking.

    I'm sure it's worthy to wait until the Nikon is out to decide. Even I could be surprised... Only a few months to go anyway (1 month before it comes out and then a few until it's available locally.

    9 Nikon single-digit pro bodies from D1H to D5.
    12 Nikon three-digit consumer bodies from D100 and up.
    56 Nikkor prime lenses from AIS 8/2.8 to AFS 400/2.8VR
    4 Nikkor zoom lenses: 14-24/2.8, 17-35/2.8, 28-70/2.8, 70-200/2.8VR

    LOL. f/0.95 is impressive, but at f/0.95 if you manage to get the eyes sharp, the nose will just be a bokeh ball. Okay, maybe not quite THAT bad, but depth of field would be pretty much none existent.

    Come on you have been around like me long enough to know some will have to buy one because most cant afford it, nothing to do with how useful it may or may not be, just as a status symbol.

    I have been in contact with someone within Nikon (perk of my job) and they have said they will have the Camera's at their location from the 23rd. Now I could be reading into this more than I should but the plural of cameras in the statement leads to me thinking that the rumours of the 2 cameras is correct.

    I have also heard of a 3000 price point ...

    I just hope that Nikon manufactures enough of these in case collectors start hoarding them. The current inflated price of the 58/1.2 Noct-Nikkor is in no way in proportion to the lens quality, but a direct consequence of the low numbers manufactured. I got mine well under $2000 way back when and it still was double of what I think it really is worth.

    Currently someone is selling a new unused (old stock) Noct-Nikkor for $12,800.

    Just to keep this thread alive, I have a source in Nikon. I am loaning an 850 next week, I asked if I can have a spare battery.

    He said they are all going to be needed for next week. This leads me to believe they will have the same battery as the 850 and the 500.
