Photos of Nikon's Retro Full Frame Leak

A little while ago, we reported that Nikon was rumored to announce a retro-style full frame camera to compete with Sony’s A7. In case you missed it the first time around, here are the rumored specs, from PetaPixel:

Specs, according to NR, are as follows: the same 16.2-megapixel full-frame sensor found in the D4, a pentaprism viewfinder (hence the assumption that this will not be a mirrorless camera), an Expeed 3 processor, a 3.2-inch LCD screen, native ISO of 100-12,800 and 5.5fps continuous shooting for up to 100 shots.

Nikon has teased the release of the camera (which Nikon Rumors believes will be called the Nikon DF) with a series of six videos called “Pure Photography,” which you can watch here.

Or, if you’d rather just skip to the good part, check out these leaked photos of the camera, which is likely to be officially announced tomorrow.






As was previously speculated, the camera does bear a fair bit of resemblance to the classic Nikon FM2 35mm — with some modern updates, of course. What do you think?

Take a look at how the Nikon DF compares to it’s competitors:
