Some of the specifications for the possible replacement of Nikon D810 were released a while ago. Now there are new updates concerning Nikon D820, and the one that catches most attention is that D820 might have the same autofocus system as Nikon D5. This means 153 focus points, 99 of them being cross type and 55 selectable.

According to the reviews, D5’s AF system is impressive. It performs fast and accurate even with the fast-moving subjects and longer bursts, and it’s reliable in various conditions. So if the D820 inherits this AF system, it will certainly be a big plus.

According to Nikon Rumors, some other features are rumored. We’ve mentioned the 46MP sensor before, but there are a few more updates as well. First of all – the name. The camera may be called D820, but another possibility is D850. It will have improved low and high ISO and improved version of SnapBridge. It will most likely come without the built-in GPS.A for the physical features, it should have a tiltable LCD screen and two cards slots, one SD and one XQD.

Nikon Rumors mentions that the camera should be announced this summer, and shipped in fall. Considering that summer is just around the corner, we shall wait and see if this is the case. In the meantime, if the info other specs appear, we’ll keep you updated.

    …hardly what I’d call a rumour – the D820/D850 was totally expected to have the D5 focusing system since, since the D5 was released.

      A rumor is different than an expectation. This is a rumor.

    It would be nice if Nikon fixed it’s software to be stable on Windows 10 before releasing another camera.

    If there is a shread of evidence that this beast is going to have the same AF system, 4k capabilities as the D5 and a 40+ megapixel sensor… bye bye medium format… Hellow long ecosystem investment… you can make a carreer out of this body alone.
