Give them some credit for this fun 'it is real but you are still guessing' tease campaign. With no hotshoe to scale things against and the assumption of a bigger mount, we can't reverse engineer how big this thing is. Even the dude who made the paper mockup we've seen is guessing. That's pretty clever.

All we know is that it has a thinner mount and that FX lenses are compatible. Because that's all Nikon wants us to know.

even without that comparison the mount seems to dominate the front of the camera.

Not all FX lenses. Only 'E' lenses.

Nikon’s lens compatibility chart will look something like this...

"Very good video AF features" doesn't sound all that new and spectacular to me. Seem like only one step up from "okay" video AF.

Nikon system sounds like it will be good, would be nice if Canon gave us something to go on. I'm poised to dump them for good if they screw this up, Nikon and Sony will be a nice combo. Already have D500 and A7R3 and A9 and 5D4 is my only Canon camera now, just sold 1DX. Using my glass on Sony though. Would love nothing more than Canon to offer something every bit as good as Sony but with their trademark superb ergonomics but am dubious it will happen.

You have three great full-frame all-rounder and one excellent APS-C all-rounder. Altogether four great digital cameras. Don't mean to hurt your feelings, but why the hell on Earth do you need more?

I get somewhat fed up with those who indulge in a serious number of very expensive bodies from a variety of manufacturers and then whinge. It seems you have a serious case of gas. Most of us can afford only a limited investment in gear and those of us who are lucky to have spare cash carry on with getting the best out of our equipment rather than chasing after small advantages elsewhere.
