Nikon’s full frame mirrorless cameras have been in the rumor mills for quite some time now and it seems we are near the day to have it officially unveiled. Historically credible source, Nikon Rumors claims that the camera maker will unveil the two models on August 23rd.
There are two variant of mirrorless cameras that could be announced, first the 24-megapixel made for low-light and high-speed photography dubbed as Z6 and the other one is detail-oriented 45-megapixel named as Z7. These cameras will be paired with just three lens options: a 24-70mm f/4 standard zoom, a 50mm f/1.8 prime and wider-angle f/1.8 lens between 24mm and 35mm. But hopefully, there will be more options within the new line of Z-Nikkor, including the ultra-wide aperture 58mm f0.95 lens that is reported to be unveiled after the 23rd.
Now if you’re excited about these new cameras, better start saving —-the Z-Nikkor lens and the Z-series cameras are deemed expensive with the body-only of Z6 rumored to have starting price of $2500.
Clearly the battlefield for DSLRs have changed with Sony’s success on its full-frame mirrorless, Nikon seemed to have just moved into the trend of serious flagship mirrorless with the Z6 and Z7. Let us see if these two flagship will carry the Nikon into level of Sony A7R III and Sony A9.
