Second shipment of Nikon D850 cameras hitting US retailers today

I received several emails from readers that a new batch of Nikon D850 cameras started shipping today in the US (see also the reports on the Nikon D850 Facebook group ). I believe the second batch will still not be enough to cover all existing pre-orders.

Nikon D850 DSLR camera teardown update: the 45.7MP CMOS BSI sensor

A quick update on my Nikon D850 DSLR camera teardown post from yesterday -  NRC Taiwan  sent me a few additional pictures of the Nikon D850 45.7MP CMOS BSI sensor: We already know that the new sensor is designed by Nikon , but we still don’t know who is the manufacturer. Maybe some of the readers can figure it out based on those pictures. Check D850 availability:  B&H  |  Adorama  |  Amazon  |  BuyDig  |  WEX  |  Jessops Facebook: Nikon D850 Page  |  Nikon D850 Group Related posts: Nikon designed the D850 sensor themselves Nikon D850 DSLR camera teardown: more durable design, significant improvements in many areas Thinking of upgrading to the D850

Nikon D850 DSLR camera teardown: more durable design, significant improvements in many areas

NRC Taiwan has done some  amazing Nikon lens restoration work in the past . Logically, the first thing they did after they got their Nikon D850 camera was to take it apart and put it back together. They also documented the entire process – see the pictures in this post in order to appreciate the level of engineering involved in making the D850.

New Nikon patents: Nikkor 52mm f/0.9 and 36mm f/1.2 full frame mirrorless lenses

Nikon 52mm f/0.9 full frame mirrorless lens Nikon 36mm f/1.2 full frame mirrorless lens Nikon has new patents filed in Japan for a  52mm f/0.9 and 36mm f/1.2 full frame mirrorless lenses: Nikon 52mm f/0.9 full frame mirrorless lens f = 51.60 (focal length) FNo = 0.91 (aperture) ω = 46.19 (half angle of view) Y = 21.63 (image height) TL = 256.8 (total length) BF = 18.225 (backfocus) Nikon 36mm f/1.2 full frame mirrorless lens f = 36.00 (focal length) FNo = 1.27 (aperture) ω = 31.0 (half angle of view) Y = 20.94 (image height) TL = 159.500 (total length) BF = 21.673 (backfocus) Nikon has already filed several patents for full frame mirrorless lenses in the past. Patents are no guarantee for future products, but I think everything so far  points to a new full frame mirrorless camera with a new mount that can accommodate a 50mm f/0.9 lens. Like the new  Nikon Mirrorless Camera Facebook page  and join the growing  Nikon Mirrorless Camera Facebook group  for a more detailed coverage of the upcoming Nikon mirrorless camera.
