As long as Nikon refuse to build compelling products for its users to upgrade to, I don’t see this trend changing. The D780 improved too little over the D750 and now it appears that the D6 improves too little over the D5.

I sincerely hope that Nikon fix the problems they currently have with the Z cameras in the next product generation because otherwise there really is nowhere for their current DSLR user base to go. Both their mirrorless and updated DSLR’s offerings are just not improved enough over existing cameras to warrant buying into IMHO.

I went from D600 to a 750 in 2015 and whilst not a major upgrade in some ways it was worth it for the way it processed NEF files alone. I went to a D850 this year and that is a major upgrade IMHO. I don't need another camera for years now and I will use what money I have in glass and if I can manage it some of those lovely F 1.4 primes jettisoned by the Z migrants.

A recent quote from Brad Hill "Because of their toxicity and incivility I almost never poke my nose into any photography forums, but I am guessing that right now a lot of negative things are being said about Nikon and the D6 in those forums".

Having tried a D780 (have you?) it is a far better camera than some are assuming without handling the camera.

For perhaps 90% of photographers 90% of the time the Z system is excellent - even ignoring the increased optical performance of Z lenses.

Or for 90% of photographers 90% of the time DSLRs are excellent saving 100% of the cost of moving to Z.

The few that have handled a pre production D6 or are established Nikon Pros seem very optimistic about the D6.

Have you seen a pre production Z6?
