Yes, they could come in high and rely on "brand Loyalty"...but I wouldnt be surprised to see $$$ony reduce prices as a defensive effort.They have a stategy and it can only mean price or quality.

If Nikon come in with a good adapter,menu,reasonable weather sealing and ergonomics they should get off to a flyer.

The short supply of the D850 is understandable now that the top end Z will have the 45mp sensor.

With the decline of Dslr sales over the last 5/6 years and the rise of M/L,both CaNik had to bring in FF m/l to retain customers.

It wont be long and we will see their offerings.Competition fuels progress and probably will lower prices on $$$ony bodies and glass.

A Specs war and Price war....YES!

Well M/L started smallish a bit over 10 years ago but as they developed the sizes have varied.Manufacturers who listen to customers have provided what they've asked for(Fuji/Panasonic).There are still plenty of small M/L bodies but the lens mount for different sensor sizes kinda dictates body size generally.

From Q or GM1 size to GFX size is a fair range and lots of choice in features,so the buyer can decide what suits their needs.



Being FF it never was going to be small.$$$ony have done FF with what was initially an Apsc mount.The Z6/7 will help Nikon retain market share and if its good enough it will bring in new customers.

$$$$ony will counter CaNik not too far down the track,they have prepared for war and probably know(with sensor sales to Nikon) what to expect.

Yes, he isnt always correct but when it comes to Fuji or Nikon he is close to accurate quite often.

Yes, the size of the mount is fairly large.Some others are speculating MF too...I'm sure its better to wait and see how the market reacts to the FF first.

Well, maybe?...He showed an Older model Nikon with a Sigma lens compared to a Pentax with a Pentax lens.

It will be interesting to see that Nik camera with the Tokina Opera lens on it?

That remains to be seen, they may not grow as fast as in the last 5/6 years.However,consider the CaNikonians who have put off moving to $$$$ony because of the rumours of the CaNik M/L FFs.IF, the product doesnt come up to $$$ony standard,there could be an acceleration in the $$$ony sales.

In past times the "$ony has no glass" line was bandied around but now the shoes on the other foot.Nik have 3 lenses being released with their FF and 3 to come in 2019( so the word goes). Canon is unknown at this point in time?

$$$ony E mount has tamron/sigma/tokina/samyang support with AF lenses....Nikon Z mount doesnt....I think Nikon has put themselves out there on a limb.It might not break,only time will tell.

It hasnt been discontinued, development costs are well and truly recovered so it must still be produced.

You can, however if you look at the magnitude of $$$ony as an entity,you may change your view.

Yes



The development from $$$ony has forced the Big Boys into action,whatever Nikon bring to the battle,$$$ony will be prepared.

Most think its a CaNik versus $$$ony war,however there will be some interesting little skirmishes from the little guys and they will grab some of the big players market.Canon has the most to lose so Sept 4/5(depending where on earth you are) may reveal what they have or it'll just be version 2 of the M5.RI may even bring a surprise or maybe thats wishful thinking?
