According to rumors, the Nikon 1 J6 will be launched in February, 2017, most probably at the CP+ show that would happen during this time. The 1 J6 will replace the existing Nikon 1 J5 and is likely to come with 4K shooting and SnapBridge. other rumored specs of the Nikon 1 J6 include 15fps shooting, Full HD movie capture at 60fps and high-speed filming in HD resolution at 120fps..

Possible D5x Announcement:
Following the footsteps of the Nikon D3x, Nikon could launch a new D5x in 2017, but nothing on this front is confirmed as of now. Even the rumor mills are somewhat silent on this. So we cannot go much beyond saying that chances of a D5x on the lines of a D3x seems rather unlikely.
A Mini Nikon D5?
Nikon in 2017 could launch a camera with the same sensor as the D5 as a possible replacement for the Nikon D750. The camera could be named D760.
Replacements for Nikon D610 and Nikon D810:
Premier FX models like the Nikon D610 and the Nikon D810 along with the Nikon D750 could see their replacements launched this year. But it is highly unlikely that the all the three cameras would be launched by Nikon in 2017, but we are expecting at least one of these to be announced by the middle of 2017.
Shipping of Nikon D5600 and DL Cameras:
By CES 2017 we could see see the shipping of the newly launched Nikon D5600 starting in the US. Shipping of the new Nikon DL series cameras could also start by CES 2017.
New E/FL series lenses:
Patents for new E/FL series lenses have already been filed. So we are expecting to see some of those becoming a reality in 2017.
