Nikon Introduces the DL Series Camera with 3 models and 4k video

I'll start off by saying I'm not in love with the naming procedure here but we now have a new series of high end cameras from Nikon (think Sony RX10 and RX100) called the DL series. Beginning with 3 models, each named for their respective focal lengths, these cameras bring non-removable lenses with wide apertures, 20.8MP Back Side Illuminated 1" Sensors, awesome features, to relatively compact bodies. Ranging in price from $649-999, there are also different features between the 3 models in addition to their focal lengths. Check out the details of each model after the break.

Nikon DL24-85 - $649 |   B&H  |  Adorama   
Nikon DL18-50 - $849 |   B&H  |  Adorama   
Nikon DL25-500 - $999 |   B&H  |  Adorama   

Let's start with the Nikon DL25-500 which as the same suggests, sports a 25-500mm F2.8-5.6 aperture lens combined with a BSI 1" sensor, focus system with 105 Phase detection AF points and 171 contrast detect points, 20fps shooting,  4K UHD video at 30p with uncompressed video output (wow!), and Wi-Fi, bluetooth & NFC for wireless connectivity.  

Next up the Nikon DL18-50 brings most of the same features into a smaller body which loses the viewfinder in place of a screen that flips up for a selfie mode. This camera has an 18-50mm F1.8-2.8 lens (35mm equivalent) which is very wide for a compact camera. You still have the same features, AF system, 4k shooting, and connections as the DL25-500 all for a lower price. 

The Nikon DL24-85 is the least expensive at $649 and has a great 24-85mm focal length at F1.8-2.8. You still have the same flip up screen and a pop up flash as well. 

These are definitely some interesting options from Nikon and vastly cheaper than the options from Sony. Stay tuned for more details.
