Getting closer to a Nikon announcement: two new entry-level Z mirrorless cameras expected (Z30 and Z5)


I am slowly starting to narrow down the next Nikon announcement - here is a quick update to my last "what to expect post": in 2020 Nikon is rumored to announce two new entry-level Z mirrorless cameras:

  • The entry-level full-frame camera should be called Nikon Z5 and it will be positioned under the Z6
  • The entry-level APS-C model should be called Nikon Z30 and will be positioned under the current Z50
  • The third rumored Nikon Z8/Z9 pro mirrorless camera is expected in late 2020 or in early 2021 (after the Z30 and Z5 announcement)

It is highly possible that Nikon will announce both the Z5 and the Z30 at the same time, but I cannot confirm that. I do not have a specific time frame yet, but my guess is that we will see the new Z5 and Z30 cameras in the next 3 months.
