Nikkan reports that the Nikon president said it will launch a mirrorless D5. This camera would directly compete against the Sony A9. There is no info about WHEN this camera would be launched. If Nikon wants it to be ready for the 2020 Olympics it would have to be launched in autumn.
And maybe that’s one more reason why Sony is planning to launch the new A9II in autumn too?
All we got about this new A9II is this:
Fall (likely September)
Specifically we have been told the new sensor is a major step forward and I am pretty sure Nikon will not use that “new revolutionary sensor”.
