We are one week away from the rumored new Nikon full-frame mirrorless camera announcement. I have received some new pricing information, this time from Europe (I assume the prices are for a lens kit): Nikon 45MP full frame mirrorless camera: €4,000 (around $4,670) Nikon 24MP full frame mirrorless camera: €2,500 (around $2,900) One possible (rumored) scenario is that 45MP Nikon mirrorless full-frame camera will be announced first (at the end of July) while the second 24MP Nikon mirrorless full-frame camera could be announced at Photokina.
