Nikon Df2 to Feature D750’s 24MP Sensor?
An article from a Japanese magazine has been doing the rounds for the last 48 hours which suggests that the Df2, Nikon’s retro styled full frame DSLR set to be released to celebrate the company’s 100th anniversary, will feature the 24MP sensor from the D750.
It is unclear if the article is current, or indeed accurate but it would be interesting to see if Nikon could make the jump to the higher resolution sensor for the Df2 without having to increase the Price too much. The current Df uses a 16.2MP FX format sensor.
Here is some information on the article provided by a Japanese speaker:
“There’s not much regarding specs in the article except a mention of a Df2 and D770 (mid-bottom). However, I’m pretty sure this article is old because the first sentence of the middle column says, “First, a D5. It should definitely arrive since it’s already in development.” And the headline above it says “No D400 but two D750 based models to arrive.” These two sentences indicate that this article was written before the D5 and D500 were released.”
“The article says the D750 successor (D770?) will have a fixed LCD screen and 1/8000 shutter speed. Although I don’t use the swivel screen much, it seems strange to take it away, especially if it’s going to have better video capabilities… The article claims (I think – hard to read the edge there) there will be a “Nikon 2 VX1″, a mirrorless camera with APS-C sized sensor. Can they actually fit APS-C sensors behind the CX mount”
