Nikon Z8 to be Announced in early May 2023?

Nikon Rumors, a prominent source for news and rumors related to Nikon products, has recently disclosed information about the highly anticipated “Z8” camera, which is speculated to be released in the near future. Based on the information received, it appears that there has been some kind of activity in early May, although the exact nature of this development is yet to be confirmed, whether it is a behind-the-scenes story, a development announcement, or an official announcement.

One of the most elusive pieces of information when it comes to new product releases is the actual launch date. Even if we receive information stating that the “Z8” will make an appearance in early May, there are various possibilities that this could entail, such as an internal announcement within Nikon, a presentation to dealers, a teaser campaign, a development announcement, an official announcement, or the actual release date of the product.

Based on the latest information available, it seems that some kind of announcement is indeed expected in early May, within the next 30 days. However, the specifics of this announcement remain unclear. Nevertheless, there is hope among Nikon enthusiasts for the introduction of at least one new lens, and possibly even two, alongside the “Z8” camera.

In the past, there have been indications that the “Z8” could be released “before summer”, announced in April, or even launched in May. However, the current reference to “early May” leaves room for interpretation. Nonetheless, it appears likely that the “NIKKOR Z DX 12-24mm f/3.5-5.6 PZ VR” lens is also progressing towards its release, and it is possible that the “Z8” camera may make its debut around the same time.
