We may see Nikon D750 successor by 2020: is it the D760?

The D750 has proven to be a popular camera since its September 2014 release. However, it’s over 5 years old. It seems time for a replacement and there are reports Nikon’s working on it successor. Is it the D760?

According to a recent report, we could be seeing a replacement camera very soon. We could see it as early as the beginning of 2020. The report comes from Nikon Rumors and it’s chock full of specifications for the unannounced camera.

The camera won’t be called the D760

While it might seem like the obvious next step, Nikon Rumors firmly says the unannounced DSLR will not be called the D760. So what will it be called? A source told Nikon Rumors the camera will be “a merger of the D700 series and the D800 series” with a model number between D760 and D800.

Here’s the rundown of the specifics

The report brings up several rumored specs. Here’s a list of all of them:

  • 24MP BSI sensor
  • 4K video support (no 4K 60fps), 1080p 120fps
  • Built-in Wi-Fi and Bluetooth
  • No built-in flash
  • Higher ISO than the D850
  • Will not be called D760
  • 2x UHS-II SD memory cards
  • Between 51 and 153 AF points (Nikon Rumors was told 105 AF points)
  • Touchscreen
  • An updated interface like the Z -series
  • Slightly smaller and lighter body than the current D750

Now, it is important to note that all of these specs are rumors. So, they likely aren’t 100 percent accurate and could change when the official announcement is made. We should be able to get more solid details closer to the official announcement. For all we know, it may indeed be called the D760.

When should you expect the official announcement?

As said above we can expect to see Nikon announce this camera sometime early 2020. Nikon Rumors believes that announcement “could be as early as January-February.” We will update you if we learn more before then. Nikon Rumors predicted last year we could see the camera announced in 2019. That seems unlikely now. It’s always important to take these reports with a grain of salt.
