Nikon has filed a new patent for a Nikkor PC-E 19mm f/4 full frame mirrorless tilt-shift lens in Japan, and has been the second patent after 28-80mm f/3.5-5.6 VR lens.

Here are the quotes of Toshiaki Akagi (Department Manager in Nikon Design Department)
“We know that there is a certain body of demand for larger sensors in mirrorless products. Although we already have the 1 inch sensor in the 1 System, we don’t want to deny the possibility of future large-sensor mirrorless cameras. So maybe if there is enough demand we may be able to provide another type of mirrorless camera with larger sensors. This is one of the solutions.”
