Re: D850 replacement, not the end of DSLRs

Yea, Nikon said they just couldn't make the D850 any better. So the R&D team just packed their bags and went home.

Nah, Nikon is still releasing new FX lenses. Some of them are very expensive telephotos that will require years of sales to recoup the development costs.

Nikon just released the D6 and the D780 in 2020. A replacement for the D850 would be the next logical upgrade.

Nikon blew out a lot of D850 with their big $500 rebate sale in November/December. After the sale you couldn't find a D850 in any of the major retailers, suggesting the US stock was depleted. The sale was probably done to reduce stock before releasing a replacement. The new D880, or whatever it will be called, will reduce the sale price of the D850 and make them harder to sell.

Yep.  I believe Nikon learned their lesson with having too much stock of the previous model hurting sales of the new model when they released the D780 with too many D750s left in the supply chain.
