Prototypes of this upcoming device are rumoured to be already in testing phase. It might have been announced earlier, but it got delayed because of the addition of sensor stabilisation. Some delay was rumoured to be caused, reason being an issue with the buffer design.

Nikon’s autofocus system of professional level DSLR is the key advantage over their mirrorless counterparts. Sensitive 3D Focus Tracking system might not be an important point to most of the enthusiast photographers. Most of them might want to shift off if Nikon offer something in comparatively smaller packages without Focus Tracking.

It is important to note that everything known about Nikon D6 is based on rumours and speculations. So, it is also possible that a mirrorless version of this camera is launched. Toshikazu Umatate, President of Nikon, mentioned in one of his interviews that development of a mirrorless camera is in-line with the D5.

Nikon is targeting professional, high end photographers with its Dx, D7x0, D8x0 and D7x00 lines. Their consumer level DSLR cameras are expected to be replaced by mirrorless ones.
