Nikon Inc. in Japan confirmed today that the 1-series is no longer in production, ending its seven-year run.
“The Nikon 1-series cameras, lenses, and accessories are no longer in production,” a Nikon Inc. spokesperson told Digital Trends.
“The Nikon 1 J5 and other Nikon 1 products are available at select retailers in some regions.”
The Nikon 1’s demise is unsurprising — the series was rumored to be on the way out last year.
The end of any interchangeable lens series, however, is significant, since the lenses no longer have a compatible body on the market, hurting any photographer who invested in the 1-series lenses.
With a 1-inch sensor, the Nikon 1 line was more of an enthusiast and consumer camera series than an option for professionals.
