You can read it everywhere: Canon PowerShot G5 X Mark II has fast 24-120mm equiv. lens and pop-up EVF, etc. etc.
Does Nikon still exist in this (compact) world, I'm waiting for years now, only one menu system is enough for me, but waiting forever for a new Coolpix A or so is a bit too long and this Canon also makes better photo's then a phone.
The only thing we read as a rumor is that Nikon is working on it, time to here more I think.

Honestly, with my Pixel 3, even the Sony has been ignored a fair amount.
Waiting for a pancake lens for the Z6.
I don't see anywhere to go but up, not everyone wants a DSLR or a Nikon 1 camera (RIP). When you don't give people options, they're going to go somewhere else. I'm not sure why Nikon is so stubborn they'd rather lose sales to other manufacturers, they had a product that was literally about to ship and canceled it last minute.
High end DSLRs and lenses were, and are, much smaller part of Nikon's sales than forums like this would leave you to believe, since it's just a vocal minority. It's not a lack of DX lenses, or high end compacts that have hurt Nikon's market position, it's that they are still stuck in 1990's thinking of big box (camera), lens, a 1980's UI, end R&D and put it to market is going to cut it. The current slap dash, afterthought, mobile software says all you need to know about it.
They need to put way more effort into integration with non-Nikon hardware, software, and possibly even third party add-ons. That might mean partnerships with Apple, Google and others. They need to develop software and hardware that allows total control from a smartphone. At some point a smartphone could even replace the back screen on the camera for that matter. Nikon should also be looking into next generation technology, new optics that replace glass and make the cameras actually smaller and lighter weight. There is far more to the future of the camera than taking away mirrors, Nikon lost that battle to Sony years ago, and they need to look elsewhere to remain a viable option for camera buyers. Nikon has spent the last 35 years following other camera makers (Canon, now Sony) to releasing new tech, if they want to survive they need to come up with something new, not follow up when it looks safe to do so.
This, with a pancake lens on it in my pocket as "walk around" camera, the DSLR, now mirrorless, as the workhorse and I can make all the photo's I want.
@WestEndFoto yes, it only becomes better and better every year, unbelievable what happened from the Nikon D70 kit, with a 18-70mm in 2004 for $ 1299.-, which was called the first pro camera, till now.
The Pixel 3 is proof enough, it's already good enough in low light that I don't carry my RX100 anymore. It's also much easier to share and send photos in terms of workflow.
