Nikon’s 1″ ‘Premium Compact’ DL Cameras, e.g., DL24-85, Delayed Until October 2016?
The three intriguing, claimed to be “Premium” 1″ Sensor Nikon “DL” cameras were announced on February 23, 2016.
They were expected to be available in June 2016 and I even talked about the Nikon DL24-85 in a February 2016 post — saying ‘June’ was a lifetime away!
Then came the delay due to the earthquake in Japan that impacted Sony sensor shipments — and Nikon, like Fuji and Pentax, get some of their sensors from Sony.
But folks who should know and care, such as “Nikon Rumors“, as recently as June 14, 2016 was claiming June 30, 2016 availability. Well June 30 was over 2 weeks ago and no sign of any of these three cameras.
The latest ‘talk’ is that these 3 cameras have been delayed till October 2016! Wow. That is a blow. Much could happen in that time.
