Nikon confirms it's developing the D6 — and that's about it

This is the Nikon D6. (Image: Nikon.)

Nikon has just announced that it’s developing the Nikon D6 professional DSLR camera and a new AF-S NIKKOR 120–300mm f/2.8E FL ED SR VR telephoto zoom lens that’s compatible with the Nikon FX format.

And... that’s about it. No specs of the camera are revealed and the only thing we can tell from Nikon’s image of the D6 is that it looks just like the D5.

On the other hand, the new NIKKOR lens is pretty straightforward. A fast, 120–300mm pro-grade zoom lens designed for sports photography, it has your usual Nikon Silent Wave Motor, fluorite elements, extra-low dispersion glass elements, and in-built vibration reduction.

Considering that the 2020 Olympic Games are happening in Tokyo in July next year, I think it’s a safe bet that both camera and lens will hit the market a few months prior.

Canon, the ball’s now in your court.
