Nikon will discontinue producing DL series of cameras
Sad news for Nikon customers, Nikon will not continue to produce its DL series of enthusiast-targeted fixed-lens cameras. This is about a year since the company announced in 2016. Then a press release came from Nikon USA authenticating B&H’S note, with the unsettling statement.
… “Everyone involved has worked very hard to develop products with which our customers will be satisfied. However, it has been decided that sales of the DL series will be canceled due to concerns regarding their profitability considering the increase in development costs, and the drop in the number of expected sales due to the slow-down of the market.”
Though other electronic categories that have products announced with great display may by no means see the light of day, it’s not frequent for cameras.
