Nikon 1 is still alive, larger sensor mirrorless solution is being considered

In addition to what I already reported in my post  yesterday, there are now two more interviews published online where Nikon clearly say that their Nikon 1 product line is still alive and a large sensor mirrorless solution is being considered: Probably the most telling interview comes from Amateurphotographer , here are few quotes: We announced the J5 about a year ago and that model is doing really well – especially in the Asian market, we have more than 10% [mirrorless] share… You can expect the J series especially to continue. This is really our mainstream model… However, we are considering taking the strengths of Nikon 1 – which is speed, portability, movie capabilities – to maybe refine the concept… to fit better to the market need… When you are talking about larger sensor mirrorless, this is definitely also a market we are officially monitoring in detail and we are really considering this segment
