In addition to the new Nikkor 400mm F/2.8E, Nikon announced another addition to their growing mirrorless lineup tonight in the form of the Nikon 1 S2. The new mirrorless body comes with a 14.2 MP sensor, is able to shoot full HD 1080p video, and an impressive continuous burst mode of 20 FPS.

This tidbit from the Nikon press release is interesting, “The Nikon 1 S2, equipped with the world’s fastest continuous shooting frame rate at 60 fps fixed focus and 20 fps full autofocus, captures crisp, clear action shots.” It seems like that means while in manual focus mode you can get up to 60 FPS burst mode. That is NUTS! I am actually interested in getting my hands on this to try it out.

This new Nikon 1 S2 camera comes equipped in a kit with the 11-27.5mm kit lens and will be available for a price of $446. Not a bad price at all, though I am sure complaints over Nikon’s sensor size and mirrorless offering in general may still scare some of you off. 

As with the 40mm F/2.8, no pre-order links are available yet. But we will make sure to update this post with them once they are.
