The Nikon D850 exists and we know that because back in July, Nikon confirmed that they are working on it and that the camera is expected to be the successor to the Nikon D810 from a few years ago. However apart from that confirmation, things like specs and also photos of the camera have yet to be revealed, or at least until now.
The folks at Nikon Rumors have recently managed to get their hands on a bunch of photos that appear to be part of the press release that Nikon is expected to put out in the near future, meaning that this is as official as it gets. According to Nikon, the D850 will be a full-frame camera, but the company stopped short of actually sharing specs like megapixel count, shooting speeds, and so on.
However if the rumors are accurate, the D850 is said to sport a 45-46MP full-frame sensor and will apparently be borrowing certain features from the higher-end Nikon D5. In fact previous reports have gone as far as calling the D850 a “baby” version of the D5, so we guess if you wanted some of the D5’s features but didn’t want to spend the money, the D850 could be a good (and cheaper) alternative.
In any case with all these leaks we expect that an official announcement could be made soon, so do check back with us in the coming days/weeks for the details if there are any to be had.
