It’s not all good news from Nikon today. Sure, they may have announced the new Nikon Z8 (buy here), but Nikon Japan has also announced price hikes for more than 50 products, including the flagship Nikon Z9 (buy here). Nikon puts the blame at the hands of increased raw material costs. The price increases are being announced today, but you’ve got a whole week before they actually take effect on May 18th.
The price increases cover just about all of their full-frame mirrorless lineup, save for the new Z8, and the remains of their full-frame DSLR cameras. The list also includes a variety of the company’s Nikkor Z lenses and teleconverters as well as a massive array of F mount AF-S lenses.
