Thanks, Dennis.

Yea, but again, can't agree with Hogan 100%.....

My take:

1) FX sensor
- F mount that is backward compatible

2) DX sensor
- F mount backward compatible

Then build the models so they are feature rich.

In my opinion, different mounts, gimmicky kit lenses, new lenses that are specific to mirrorless etc all give me reasons to ignore it.

Go for a solid, strong brand that takes full advantage of the lens brand and cut the bull!

And update firmware like Fuji does.

Well, besides eating Sushi, I believe there's a lot of potential development on the Nikon-front...

Like Art, I don't fully agree with Hogan.  However, he has some points.

 

My own feeling is that they mess with the lenses at their peril.

At this point Nikon has a lot of great technology in the Nikon 1 lineup as well as the D850 that can be rolled into a mirrorless lineup.  I like having a viewfinder, and a first rate EVF would be important for any DX or FX mirrorless.  I want to have similar controls across all cameras in the lineup to minimize learning curve and to make it easier to use multiple cameras.  

 

I'm okay with a new mount, but stop changing it.  Yes - there is a difference in focal plane depth if you optimize mirrorless.  But a camera needs to fit my hand, so it can only get so small.  More important is that if you align the camera with F-mount users, everyone has a host of good lenses and will try the new body.  If you have a new lens mount, users have to buy lenses and the kit selection could include alternative models from Canon, Sony, Fuji, etc.  My guess is you'd pick up 80% of the Nikon user market with an F-Mount, but 25% with a new lens mount. 

 

The Nikon 1 line needs to be maintained as both the compact replacement and the transition point for interchangeable lens cameras.  Models should have both fixed and interchangeable lenses with the 1 inch sensor.  The Nikon 1 compact camera should be the new point and shoot.  It needs great connectivity.

 

Nikon has strengths in their current cameras.  It's part of the brand.  A mirrorless model needs to maintain those strengths - not be a "me too" camera.  It's nice to have the basic features, but the Nikon cameras need to have great AF, logical placement of buttons and navigation, and some Wow features.
