I don’t see any Z series camera being an equivalent of the D5/D6 cameras right now or in the future. A major distinction is that these cameras are about speed. Increasing the megapixels is going to hinder a camera’s speed capabilities. The Z8, if rumors are correct on the 60mb, is not a D5/D6 (or sports camera) equivalent but simply a pro landscape camera.

You’re right, the Z8 is not going to be a D6 equivalent. The D6 equivalent will be a Z9 and it won’t be out till late summer early fall 2021.

I have to wonder how much face was lost by not having a Z line A9 competitor ready for the Tokyo Olympics...

IMO Nikon lost a lot of face value in the past 1-2 years but not due to this. They never promised a mirrorless A9 competitor and there were no rumors either.

The bigger concern is the constant delays, the letdown of the D6 and partially the D780, little progress on the mirrorless front and the lack of any benefit of the wide Z mount, which was marketed so much and it only brought more expensive and bulky lenses.
