This model has not even been officially announced by Nikon. Nikon Z8 rumors and reports have been around since 2020 when the DCW site suggested that the Z8 would share the same sensor as the Nikon D850 (D880) replacement model. However, all information is kept secret so far, very little is still known about the Z8.
Most fans are expecting the Nikon Z8 to release now, so what to expect? New insider reports from major Nikon rumor sites suggest Nikon’s Z8 is in “production-ready” condition, but its release and any planned official announcements will be delayed until 2023 due to ongoing component shortages. .
The Nikon Z8 is said to have the same 61MP sensor as the Sony A7R V, and it can directly compete with Sony’s latest camera among users who want one of the fastest high-resolution professional cameras. .
The Nikon Z8 has been delayed in part due to an ongoing component shortage
Nikon is not the only one to solve the problem of delayed shipments, previously Canon also announced the postponement of the production of the R6 mark II model just a few weeks after its announcement. Just this week, Apple said the iPhone 14 Pro could be delayed due to Covid restrictions causing delays at its assembly plant. But the shortage of parts is the main problem facing manufacturers. We saw a similar annoying issue with the Canon EOS R7.
Delays in delivery of highly anticipated models like these will always annoy fans, but the manufacturers themselves are having a hard time figuring it out. We’ll be keeping an eye out for Nikon Z8 shipping changes and keeping fans updated as they become available. At this point, all we can do is watch and wait. Of course, if the rumors are true, it will have to wait until spring 2023.
