The pricing details have also been revealed, with the Nikon Z8 body alone priced at €4,599 and the camera kit with a 24-120mm lens priced at €5,549.

- Nikon Z8 camera with 24-120mm lens kt: €5,549
As rumored earlier, the price of the Nikon Z8 is around 4,500 euros. Even with the price including VAT, the camera still seems to be quite expensive. However, considering the price difference between the Nikon Z8 and its predecessor, the Z 9, which is currently selling for €5,299 in Europe, the price difference is relatively small. The Nikon Z8 is expected to be the “mini Z 9”, and as speculated, it will be a high-performance mirrorless camera equipped with a 50-megapixel stacked CMOS sensor. The camera is designed to deliver exceptional image quality, with remarkable color accuracy and sharpness, even in low-light conditions.
Despite its impressive features, some users may feel that the Nikon Z8 is an over-spec camera, as it does not come with the much-anticipated EXPEED 7 processor, which is installed in the Z7 or Z6 series camera. However, the Nikon Z8 is still expected to deliver exceptional performance, with advanced autofocus capabilities and impressive video recording features.
The Nikon Z8 is set to be released on May 25th, just 15 days after its announcement on May 10th. Camera enthusiasts are hoping that this time, the release won’t be plagued by the same extreme shortage issues that the Z9 experienced. With its exceptional features and capabilities, the Nikon Z8 is undoubtedly one of the most anticipated camera releases of the year, and it is sure to be a hit among photography enthusiasts and professionals alike.
