Nikon D6 Pro DSLR Officially Under Development
By Ian Bongso-Seldrup, September 4, 2019 @ 10:30 AM (EST)

The DSLR is dead, long live the DSLR! It’s official: Nikon’s new flagship pro DSLR is coming. But, boy, is the press release—below—a nonevent. If you were expecting some mouthwatering morsels in the specifications department, we’re afraid you’ll be sorely disappointed. The only thing you can count on, according to Nikon, is that the D6 will be “its most advanced DSLR to date.” Oh, and that’s a proper Nikon picture of the camera.

We also have no idea when the D6 will be launched, but being a DSLR aimed primarily at pro sports shooters, you can bet we’ll all be fully apprised of its specs by the time the Tokyo Olympic Games roll around next summer.

Until then, just keep on dreaming, folks...
