The upcoming Nikon Z8 has been a known entity for a long time now, with numerous rumors and leaks confirming its existence. Now we have been treated to the most significant leak yet, with almost everything you'd want to know about the upcoming camera being revealed.

Thanks to information from Nikon Rumors we know that the Z8 will share a lot of similar specs with the Nikon Z9, although it won't quite be able to keep up with its powerhouse of a big brother. The Nikon Z8 will also have a form factor that is much closer to the shape of the Nikon Z7 II, rather than the Z9, with the latter's built-in vertical grip.
