Nikon will allegedly announce a new higher-end/flagship full frame mirrorless camera in late 2020 to early 2021. According to latest rumors, the name of this new camera could be Nikon Z8 or Z9.
While both the Nikon D850 and Nikon Z7 sit nicely with the 45.7MP sensor, we expect a major upgrade to both camera systems and this will probably please photographers who are always looking for more megapixel power.
