In the patent only at this stage, so its 50:50 whether the one in the patent is the actual one used.However,ive not seen another patented adapter speculated about so i think theres a reasonable chance that the mirrored one is "the" one to use the DSLR lenses with.

Now, Nikon aborted 3 cameras a while ago,so until the things are in the stores its all speculation.Also talked about was the fact that we are still "in" the 100th year of Nikon(ends in a few days) so Nikonites strongly believe an announcement of FF M/L will happen very soon.

Its all interesting,wait and see.
FT1 adapter didn't have the fixed slt type setup. That was the nikon 1 to f mount adapter.

Nikon only stopped the DL series (3 cameras to which you're referring). We indeed can only speculate why (their 'official' response was they feared they would be unprofitable). My own thoughts is they probably did think they'd be unprofitable at the MSRPs they had but also they probably realized they needed to push a FF mirrorless out the door sooner than later due to Sony's movements and maybe Canons. So what do you do? Jettison your smaller mirrorless cameras to make way for the bigger boys (in terms of personnel, finances, and assembly). At least that is my uninformed theory

New rumor on the nikonrumors site was the july date could just be an internal/company info release date and the actual product comes in late august. I think that seems more reasonable. But definitely before Photokina.
