Breaking news from the Nikon camp. According to a report published moments ago by Nikon Rumors, the camera company is planning to release the Nikon Z6s and Nikon Z7s later this year, adding several important new features and replacing the current Nikon Z6 and Z7.

NR doesn’t mention a source for this information, but according to the rumor site the Z6s and Z7s will be incremental upgrades to the almost two-year-old Nikon Z6 and Z7 that seem to “fix” many of the complaints that photographers have about the current full-frame mirrorless lineup.

According to Nikon Rumors these cameras will use the same sensor as the current models; however, they’ll feature several improvements, including:

  • Dual EXPEED processors
  • A new Nikon EN-EL15c battery (the current models use the EN-EL15b)
  • The ability to be powered over USB (possibly thanks to the new battery)
  • Dual memory card slots (no word on whether the second slot will be SD or CFExpress)
  • 4K/60p video
  • The ability to use a proper vertical grip with buttons/controls

Nikon Rumored to Announce a Brand New Full Frame Mirrorless Camera and Three Z-Mount Lenses

It’s being reported that Nikon is close to launching an entry-level, full frame mirrorless camera and three new lenses, with the announcement due to come within the next three weeks.

The rumor mills have been discussing the arrival of the mooted Z 5, an affordable full frame mirrorless camera that would rival the Canon EOS RP. Speculation has wavered over whether this camera would include an EVF, perhaps only featuring a rear LCD with the option of a bolt-on EVF that could be added via the hotshot.

The chatter now seems to have decided that Nikon has not taken this route, choosing to ditch only the top-panel LCD, and borrowing the EVF from the existing Z 6. Other guesses include a 24 megapixels sensor, dual card slots, IBIS, a 1.7x crop in 4K, and stills at 6 frames per second.

Perhaps of greater interest to existing Z 6 and Z 7 owners are the three new lenses that may be announced at the same time. The three lenses are:

  • Nikkor Z 24-50mm f/4-6.3
  • Nikkor Z 50mm f/1.2 S
  • Nikkor Z 14-24mm f/2.8 S
