With rumors of a Z8, where does the Z7 fit in?

It's a good question

First, let me say that I think Nikon will start using Mark II, Mark III designations.  I don't see that they can do otherwise given the Zx model numbering.

So I think it would be really strange for Nikon to come out with a high resolution (60MP) Z8.  It would make much more sense to introduce a Z7 MkII with 60MP.

If Nikon were to have a lineup that included Z5, Z6, Z7, Z8, and Z9 (a D6 pro type model) that would be one more in the lineup than they ever had in DSLR.  If they do that, of which I'm doubtful, they would really need to come up with some differentiation between Z7 and Z8.

I have no clue what Nikon will actually do.  But I would think that the Z8 will really be a Z7 Mk II.
