There's been a lot of nice camera introduced in the last 3 years, but none of them have actually changed the game.
What changed the game was full frame camera for under $2K, only a few years before introduction of the K1. There was a lot of adoption of digital full frame since then. Mirrorless has been there for a very long time: 20 years ago I had a compact camera that was mirrorless, I still have it and it still works, but at that time, having a "reflex" was highly regarded, it's funny how marketing folks can turn things around to make people buy.

That say, I'm still interested to see what Nikon have done in terms of camera capability: ergonomics, battery life, image quality from the sensor and the lenses available. With or without a mirror is not really my concern, as I'm interest to know what photographs can be taken and how much the system costs.

Yes, that has my interest too.As well as the moving picture capability???

Whats funny is the HYPE that Nikon are creating with the "teaser" videos.Their body better be GOOD or they will fall flat.Mind you it will sell instead of some $$$onys and some Nikon Dslrs,so there will be some cannibalisation.

Judging by the potential size of the new Nikon mirrorless - it looks just about as big as a D850 - many people will ask: what's the point?

At least Sony A-mount to Sony E mount gives you a clear choice about which is the more compact option. E-mount continues to offer [smaller and lighter] APS-C too.

On Nikon’s teaser website, they’re fairly explicit about the lens mount – it’s all new with new lenses, of course, but they emphasise that they have an adapter to take their DSLR lenses. Now, that’s something people here have been decrying loudly for some time. I wonder if current Nikon DSLR users feel the same?

Sony is Minolta. Not really late. Also modern cameras are small computers with attached optics. Sony has plenty of electronics experience.
I've always wondered how much Minolta DNA is left in any current Sony cameras. Not much I would say. There may have been a couple of alpha mount cameras right after Sony bought KM that had some, but it seemed as though they left that pretty quickly to churn out tech monsters.

Small size is definitely not something why anyone would buy this camera or the lenses.

...including the adapter, which was my point.

According to Cameraville’s review of the D FA*50/1.4, Nikon needs to up their modern lens technology game, too.

Nikon would have to launch a few lenses with the camera too. Does anybody recognize the lens in the latest leaked pics? Is it an adapted DSLR lens or a new mirrorless one? Looks like a zoom to me.

Well Nikonians dont always buy the native lenses,Sigma has been a reasonable choice but i heard on the grapevine that Tokina might be giving the Sigma some competition!

Thanks RobA for the heads up on that Vid(i bet RobB suggested it).

Too true, on both counts. Tokina is the sort of partner that Ricoh would be well-advised to stick with, if they can bring more revenue to the table.
