An exciting update has just been released for all photography enthusiasts eagerly waiting for the upcoming Nikon Z8 camera. A recent European dealer presentation reveals that the much-anticipated device is set to hit the market on May 25th, 2023. This is great news for those who have been eagerly anticipating the release of this mirrorless camera. The wait is finally over, and the Z8 promises to be an incredible piece of equipment.
While the release date is fast approaching, potential buyers are also curious about the pricing details. According to the same dealer presentation, the Nikon Z8 will be available at €4,599 for the body only and €5,549 for the camera kit with a 24-120mm lens. This pricing structure is slightly more expensive than what was previously rumored, but it is worth noting that the cost includes VAT.

- Nikon Z8 camera with 24-120mm lens kt: €5,549
Some might say that the Nikon Z8 is quite pricey, especially considering that the Z 9 is being sold at €5,299 in Europe. However, the price difference between the two is not substantial, and it is highly likely that the Z8 is the “mini Z 9.” The rumors seem to be true, and this high-performance mirrorless camera will come equipped with a 45-megapixel stacked CMOS sensor. However, for those hoping for a new model with the EXPEED 7 processor installed in the Z 7 or Z 6 series camera, the Z8 may seem like an over-spec camera.
The Z8 is set to be a game-changer, and with its release date fast approaching, it is only natural for photographers worldwide to be excited. With just about 15 days left until the release date, photographers are anxiously anticipating the arrival of the Z8. After the extreme shortage experienced during the release of the Z9, enthusiasts are hoping that the same does not happen with the Z8. Fingers crossed, we can only hope that this time, Nikon has made ample preparations to meet the demand.
