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 it was going to be mid-October. Now they are saying MAYBE Christmas 2016. Not good.

I am bummed. Good news for Olympus, Panasonic and Fuji.

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.

Amazon’s listing, July 19, 2016 for the Nikon DL24-500mm stating “not yet released”.


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.

Would I Have Bought The New Nikon DL24-85 vs The Panasonic Lumix LX100?

The Nikon DL series was announced exactly a week after I had placed my order for the Panasonic Lumix LX100 from BuyDig.com. Yes, I had heard the rumors but Nikon did not really figure in my choices — the only brands I was seriously considering having been Fuji, Olympus and Panasonic.

Should I have waited for the Nikon DL? I don’t think so.

Why? First and foremost SENSOR SIZE. It is like trying to overcome an addiction. I really, really do want to get away from 1″ sensors. That is like the #1 goal in my life! I know it is sad — when sensor size becomes the most important goal of your life. So that alone would have been enough for me to discount the Nikon.

And then there is the availability. June 2016? In my world that is the lifetime away. I would probably have taken over 6,000 pictures with the LX100 by then!

So right now I have no regrets. Whenever I see stuff about how good the Nikon DLs are I just remind myself, 1″ and in this case SIZE matters a LOT.
