Both Nikon D860 (D850 Replacement) and Nikon Z8 to Have a 60MP Sensor

Both Nikon D860 (D850 Replacement) DSLR camera and Nikon Z8 mirrorless camera are rumored to have a 60MP sensor.

Nikon is planning to announce two new mirrorless cameras in 2020, and one of them will be the high-end Nikon Z8 full frame mirrorless camera. And the Nikon Z8 is rumored to have a 60MP sensor, dual SD and CF express cards slots, vertical grip option, pro body and it will be more expensive than Nikon Z6 and Nikon Z7. The previous rumor said the upcoming Nikon Z8 will use the same Sony a7R IV‘s 61MP full frame CMOS sensor. The release date for Nikon Z8 camera will be in late 2020.

In addition, Nikon will also announce D850 replacement (probably called D860) after the Z8 announcement, maybe in 2021.

Back in April 2019, we reported that both Nikon D860 and Nikon Z8 cameras might use 60MP IMX455AQR Sensor from Sony. Sony IMX455AQR sensor features 60MP, 8k video, and offers native 64 ISO. It’s being said that the Sony 60MP sensor PDAF is supposed to be better than the Multi-CAM 20000 currently used in some Nikon cameras.
