A long time ago we posted the rumor that Nikon would use a 2,5x crop factor sensor for their new "Coolpix Pro" mirrorless system. Now a second independent and well known externals source (Nikonrumors) confirmed that the system will have a 2,6x crop sensor (not 2,5x): "the difference between 2.5x and 2.6x is probably because of different rounding". But Nikonrumros also got one more info: "According to the rumor, three new lenses will be introduced at the time of the mirrorless camera announcement: one wide pancake and two zooms." To bad that the announcements have been delayed. As Thom Hogan said: "The electronics companies in Japan still aren't sure what they will and won't be able to produce in the near term."

P.S.: I know many of you will laugh at the "PRO" suffix for the mirrorless Coolpix camera. But you know...marketing rules the world!

One more news about the Pentax mirrorless system. Raphael Mabo (Dpreview forum) said that "If Pentax makes a mirrorless camera, it won't be K-mount." Sounds reasonable...
