Nikon Z8 unveiled – why I’m not more excited about the near perfect camera

The Nikon Z8 has officially been announced, with the Japanese camera maker calling it the true successor to the Nikon D850 and a ‘baby Z9’ – the new camera packs virtually all of the features as its larger sibling, but costs over 25% less, with a £3,999 list price in the UK and a launch date of May 25 (we don’t currently have US or Australia pricing).

That’s exciting stuff. The Nikon Z9 won our 2022 camera of the year award, and that was before Nikon lavished two major firmware updates that introduced significant improvements across the board – and the Z8 effectively picks up where the Z9 is now, on firmware version 3.0.
