Nikon has announced the DL premium compacts range using NIKKOR optics and powerful Nikon technology. 

Three models make up the all-new range: the Nikon DL24-85 f/1.8-2.8, the Nikon DL18-50 f/1.8-2.8, and the Nikon DL24-500 f/2.8-5.6. Each camera boasts a fixed NIKKOR zoom lens with high-performance optics to match those found in Nikon DSLR lenses, and a fast 1-inch CX-format sensor. Whichever Nikon DL camera a photographer uses, they can capture 20.8 MP stills in JPEG or NEF (RAW) format, and 4K/UHD movies at 30p/25p.

Every Nikon DL premium compact also employs Nikon’s acclaimed Advanced Hybrid AF system for blazingly fast subject acquisition. An EXPEED 6A processor with no less than four CPUs is the engine behind each camera’s astonishing shooting speeds: up to a mind-blowing 60 fps with focus fixed at the first frame, or up to 20 fps with continuous AF. Nikon’s Dual Detect Optical VR (Vibration Reduction) system delivers enhanced shake detection and correction, and every camera boasts rapid start up and response times. In addition, each camera features an ISO 518 hot shoe, which accepts various accessories including trusted Nikon DSLR Speedlights. Dedicated Nikon DL accessories include the optional DF-E1 tiltable electronic viewfinder (EVF) with eye sensor, which offers clear visibility and a high-contrast information display. Nikon DSLR users will also appreciate the familiar control buttons, dials and menus. And the lens barrel on each camera is detailed with the signature gold NIKKOR ring.

Nikon DL24-85 f/1.8-2.8: £549.99/€759.95

I think I might like the DL 24-500. Perhaps Nikon would loan me one for a few months! Wink
