Nikon Z9 Specs Leaked: Beats Canon EOS R3 & Sony a1

NikonRumors leaked the specifications of the upcoming Nikon Z9 full-frame mirrorless camera. Then Tony Northrup compares the Nikon Z9 to the Sony a1, the Canon R5 and the Canon R3. Tony says the Nikon Z9 has advantages over all of them – but it’s being released quite a bit later. This isn’t necessarily a bad thing because Nikon can realize significant advantages by NOT being the leading-edge innovator they have been known to be. By waiting a year or two to release tech, they let Canon and Sony absorb the bulk of the research, development and marketing costs. Check out!
