It could be said that perhaps the release of the Nikon D6 wasn't quite as exciting as Nikon fans were hoping for, but maybe they can take heart in the latest Nikon rumors to hit the internet. Apparently, both the Nikon Z8 and the Nikon D880 (our moniker for the Nikon D850 replacement) will be using the same Sony 60MP CMOS sensor. 

With both the Nikon D850 and the Nikon Z7 sitting pretty with a 45.7MP sensor, this will be a significant upgrade to both camera systems and will likely please those photographers always looking for more megapixel power.
