Completely as expected, Nikon is pre-announcing the up-coming flag-ship D6 DSLR, which I am sure will be available several months prior to the 2020 Tokyo Summer Olympics, which starts on July 24, 2020. No further details are available from Nikon at this point, other than one sample product image, but we know that it will be an F-mount DSLR. Typically when there is a pre-announcement, Nikon would formally introduce such products in approximately two months. In that case it'll put us to November. Both the D4 and D5 were announced in early January, 2012 and 2016 respectively, both Summer Olympic years (London and Rio de Janeiro). However, the D3 was announced on August 23, 2007, almost a full year prior to the 2008 Beijing Olympics. What is surprising is that Nikon is also pre-announcing a new 120-300mm/f2.8 E FL AF-S VR lens. That explains why Nikon has introduced the 400mm/f2.8, 500mm/f4, 600mm/f4, 800mm/f5.6 and 180-400mm/f4 (w/ 1.4x TC) FL AF-S VR lenses but not the 300mm/f2.8. Likewise, we have a product image from Nikon, but there are no further details such as pricing. However I would expect this lens to be expensive, close to US$10K range. BTW, these are the first F-mount DSLR and lens Nikon will be announcing since August 2018, just over a year ago. The last F-mount lens Nikon introduced was the 500mm/f5.6 PF. Given that Canon announced new 400mm/f2.8 and 600mm/f4 lenses for their DSLR EF mount a year ago, it confirms that for sports and action photography, and to some degree news photography, it will continue to be DSLRs for a few more years for Canon and Nikon.
