Sad, but times are changing. Good thing there's plenty pre-owned.

Maybe time to retire my D750, FM2n and all AIS and G F mount lenses. I'll bet it will not bring enough to by a basic Z quality system.

Nikon came out today and squelched that rumor.

Maybe they meant that all S-mount products were out of production. Too bad, would like a Nikon D-SP

Variations of this rumor have been around since Nikon went whole hog mirrorless. And, I suspect that eventually Nikon will stop making lenses for that mount. However, there are still enough F mount users in the world to justify the continuation of at least a few (more profitable) lenses and accessories. But, I would be surprised to see another F mount camera from Nikon.

 

The comment about this from a Nikon spokesperson was, even without accounting for errors in translation, ambiguous at best. And, Nikon has said officially, that mirrorless is the future. So, it is what it is.

 

Whether all of this is a good thing or bad thing does, of course, depend on your point of view.
