The 24.5MP Nikon D780 is a DSLR. Remember those? The D780, which was introduced by Nikon in January, is a "throwback" camera in other ways as well. It uses the venerable F-mount introduced on the Nikon F in 1959 and features a 44mm throat with a 46.5mm flange-to-focal plane distance.

The recent CES 2020 show in Las Vegas showcased the usual profusion of smart tech and AI-empowered gadgets, so few expected that the most most exciting news in the imaging world would come in the form of two new back-to-the-future full frame DSLRs from Nikon and Canon.

Full frame digital cameras have been a dominant force in the imaging marketplace for quite some time, and as we begin 2020 “the year of perfect vision,” mirrorless cameras have clearly surpassed DSLRs in terms of new product introductions and overall sales figures. The reasons aren't hard to fathom.
