Five new Nikon patents as published the latest list of patents from Nikon. The  author Jesse Kraal believes that 2 of the 5 patents are for a future mirrorless camera from Nikon; one of those patents being for a 10-97mm lens.

However, I’m not sure that this lens will indeed be for a mirrorless camera. This lens patent could in fact be for an SLR.  If it’s for a DX camera, that would equate to approximately a 15-16mm to 140-150mm lens. This would be very interesting indeed. It could indeed though be for the mirrorless camera, should it actually come.

Another interesting patent is for a variable angle viewfinder. This one is no doubt for a mirrorless camera.
