Nikon's 100th anniversary

As Nikon celebrates its 100th anniverary in 2017, the company reportedly is going to get serious about mirrorless cameras, according to Yahoo Japan. It includes the possibility of developing multiple mirrorless cameras.

It was nearly five years ago in 2011 that Fujifilm reinvigorated its digital camera lineup with the X100.

What made the X100 so popular was its retro styling and a rangefinder style optical-electronic viewfinder that the camera-buying public loved.

Up to that point, Fujiflm had produced quite a few digital point and shoots and several DSLRs that were based on Nikon bodies fittied with a Fujifilm sensor.
