According to Nikkei Asia, Nikon plans to stop developing digital SLR cameras. Given, among other things, competition from smartphones, the Japanese manufacturer wants to focus on mirrorless solutions, which are smaller and lighter in weight.

In addition, electronic vision determinants Lower quality than a DSLR’s real-time optical viewfinder. Newer models have largely resolved these issues while remaining relatively small and light.
Nikon has since released a statement calling out the Nikkei article speculation.

So at the moment, nothing seems to be changing, although in reality there may not be other new models.
