Some recent interviews have been done with Nikon executives and the subject of the future of the Nikon 1 system has come up.
In an interview with heise.de, Dirk Jasper from Nikon stated that the company is very happy with the Nikon 1 J5 camera, claiming that in Europe the Nikon 1 J5 is capturing between 2% and 10% market share depending on the country.
In another interview done by PhotographyBlog with Dirk Jasper and Jordi Brinkman of Nikon Europe, the Nikon executives confirmed that the Nikon 1 system will be continuing:
“The Nikon 1 system will definitely still be around in the future – there are no plans to withdraw it from the market, as you can tell by our stand which has a large Nikon 1 area. The Nikon 1 J5 camera is selling really well, allowing us to achieve up to 10% share with just one camera model in some European countries. Again, the smaller sensor size gives the Nikon 1 system some key advantages when compared to larger sensor cameras.”
So, it would appear that logic has won out and the Nikon 1 system will be around for some time to come. Great news for all of us that love the Nikon 1 system!
