A strange rumour I would think ... I can't see why Nikon would put a DX sensor in the new Z body.. and have to start a whole new series of lenses for the smaller sensor... they have near given up producing DX lenses for the mirror bodies..some time back. Sure FX lenses would work fine but ?? Unless the DX mirrorless is a smaller body... with the bigger lens mount...?? I can certainly see them putting a larger sensor in the Z body/lens mount... not a smaller one. :rolleyes: :huh:

Why?

I hope they don't.  I think their road map should be nothing but Z and only Z and leave it at that.

 

Have some really solid body offerings and make two lines of lenses, Pro and Consumer and move on.

Then lose most of your customers to Canon, Sony and Fuji who's putting out affordable mirrorless cameras. I think if someone can afford a Z body they can also afford the nice lenses.
