The Nikon D810 was originally announced back in 2014, which means that it is now 3 years old, and by camera standards it also means that it is prime for a successor. According to a report from Nikon Rumors, it seems that they can “confirm” that the successor to the Nikon D810 will be the Nikon D850.
This is actually not the first time we’ve heard about the camera’s successor, but many had assumed that the successor would be known as the Nikon D820, which we guess makes sense. We’re not sure why Nikon is making such a big jump in terms of model numbers, but we guess we’ll just have to wait and see if the rumors pan out.
In terms of specs, not much is known at the moment. However previously we had heard that the camera could pack a 45-46MP sensor, improved low and high ISO, a tiltable LCD display, and support for two memory card slots, and that it will most likely use the same AF system found in the Nikon D5. Other than that it’s really anyone’s guess.
We have also heard the rumors that the camera could be officially announced towards the end of July, which is next week, so hopefully we won’t have to wait much longer to get all the official details.
