The Nikon Z8 is set to ship on May 25 for a body-only price of $4000, and pre-order links are already available from most major retailers. There is also a new battery grip (the MB-N12) shipping later this month as well. Here are the pre-order links:
- Nikon Z8 from B&H for $3996.95
- Nikon Z8 from Adorama for $3996.95
- Nikon Z8 from Amazon – shows “currently unavailable” but you can add to your list
- Europe: Nikon Z8 from Calumet for €4599
- Europe: Nikon Z8 from Wex for £3999
And then the battery grip:
Nikon says that the MB-N12 battery grip has the same level of weatherproofing as the Z8 itself. It is dedicated for the Nikon Z8 and accepts two Nikon EN-EL15 batteries, boosting battery life by 80%. It has a joystick, AF-On button, two command dials, and a vertical shutter button.
Considering Nikon’s recent history, the Z8 will likely be backordered initially, so pre-ordering is the smart move if you want to receive yours quickly. Photography Life will get a small commission if you buy the Z8 through one of our affiliate links, but frankly, I recommend setting up a pre-order from multiple locations (especially local camera stores) if you want to get yours as quickly as possible!
