The rumoured Z9 camera has been seen in Tokyo at the Olympics.

It has little interest to me as I think that the size and weight compared to my Z7 will be a big increase.  I am sure it has a place but not in my camera bag.

Looks nice...but why all the secrecy...is it not a finished product yet?

Wondering about the price...

Price will be similar to that of the D6 I understand, mortgage territory!

I want a FTZ mkii which has a screwdriver motor for older AF lenses.
No rumours of such a thing coming from anyone much less Nikon who want you to buy Z lenses.

Nikon has announced that they`ve stopped the production of Rifle Scopes, that`s a good chunk of money down the drain , ´cause them were selling well, yet rumours about dwindeling camera sales are persistent,seemingly, Nikon is taking the same route Olympus took thirty years ago, smaller camera and smaller lenses... I hope the recipe works for them , personally, I will stay with my current system, I prefer the Slr over anything else and have a good amount of lenses incl. AF-S ones, but that Z-9 does look NICE !...but I`d rather invest in another lens, 2nd.hand AF-S lenses are dwindling in prices and I am tempted, but I have Demands, them Must have VR, or I wrinkle my nose..:-)

Well here you are the latest rumour mill fall out of what the new Z9 specifications are.

https://nikonrumors.com/2021/08/10/new-nikon-z9-monster-specs-leaked-announcement-expected-in-the-next-two-months-nikon-basically-combined-the-d6-and-d850-and-made-it-mirrorless.aspx/

8256 x 5504px resolution that confirms a 45MP stacked sensor (it is interesting to note that Canon decided to go with a 24MP sensor for their R3 camera).
    The Z9 will be capable of up to 120 fps in a lower res file size (6Mb I think). Some reports even indicated 160 fps!
    Built-in GPS – probably GNSS (Global Navigation Satellite System).
    The Z9 will use the same battery as D6. There will be also a new 18-type battery (EN-EL18x) that can be charged by the camera’s USB-C.
    The sensor has multi leaf blade protective shutter that auto covers sensor when switched off/changing lens to stop dust and dirt on naked sensor.
    The Z9 will have car autofocus in addition to animal and people AF as well as low light -7 EV.
    Improved 3D tracking.
    Improved articulated screen that even works in portrait mode – it is a completely new design.
    New style locking flap for the two CFExpress memory cards.
    Third joystick/selector added to use whilst camera close face and shooting.
    Many new menu features to tweak and match your shooting style.
    The shutter release sound level can be adjusted from silent to loud… so you can still get that D6 machine gun sound…
    The official announcement is expected in the next 2 months, but do not expect many cameras to ship before the end of the year. Because of part shortage, the waiting time for the Z9 is expected to be very long.

Far more resolution than I need but, aside from the articulated screen, the rest looks useful. Unfortunately the cost of switching would be prohibitive and the cost of CF Express cards simply adds to that. If you thought XQD cards were expensive don't even look at CFExpress!

I'll be looking out for used D5 or D6 bodies, if the prices ever come down enough.

More rumours about a revised FTZ adapter that will allow AF-D lenses to autofocus on a Z camera as well as AF-S lenses.

From NikonRumors.com "I can now confirm that Nikon is indeed working on a new Nikon FTZ2 adapter – I received multiple tips from reliable sources. The new adapter will have a re-designed body (probably without the bump at the bott0m) and this should avoid problems when mounting Z cameras on a tripod or when using underwater housings. I am not sure if the new adapter will be announced together with the Z9 camera. Stay tuned for more details."
