Nikon is going to enter into the mirrorless market with development speed accelerated, since it doesn’t have any strategic products among major makers. Nikon has decided to have press release for a new product on August 23rd in Tokyo. Details regarding the price and the release date haven’t been yet decided, but Nikon is expected to release as early as this fall.

An executive from Canon says “We are going to respond to the demand in the high-spec mirrorless”.
