No, the Nikon Z8 hasn't leaked, but the Canon EOS R5 rival is now looking likely

An apparently leaked image of a new Nikon Z8 full-frame camera has emerged to excite Nikon fans – but while it sadly looks like a Photoshopped placeholder, the long-awaited Canon EOS R5 rival does seem increasingly likely to launch soon.The Nikon Z8 image in question (below) came from the Twitter account 'how2fly(opens in new tab)', which doesn't have a long track record of reporting leaks or inside information, but it was picked up by the reliable Nikon Rumors(opens in new tab). Nikon Rumors was non-committal about the image's validity, and it certainly looks like a crudely Photoshopped press shot of the Nikon Z9, only without its built-on grip. In fairness, 'how2fly' also didn't claim the image to be official, stating that it's "not allowed to share the high-res picture yet", suggesting that this is indeed a placeholder. So what should camera fans make of the Nikon Z8 rumors? Other rumor sites, including Canon Watch(opens in new tab), have suggested that the 'how2fly' Twitter account is a reliable source, despite its historical lack of Nikon predictions.
