The Nikon Z7 II Mirrorless Camera is 3 Grand an it's doesn't have a stacked sensor. The Flagship cropped camera from Fuji which is STACKED, is $500 less than the Z7ii, so clearly an flagship cropped camera can cost less than what you are suggesting. So bring on the Flagship Nikon cropped camera.

FUJIFILM X-H2S Mirrorless Camera


  • 26.1MP APS-C X-Trans Stacked BSI Sensor
  • 4K 120p, 6.2K 30p, FHD 240p 10-Bit Video
  • Internal ProRes 422 HQ and F-Log 2
  • 7-Stop In-Body Image Stabilization
  • 5.76m-Dot OLED Electronic Viewfinder
  • 3" 1.62m-Dot Vari-Angle Touchscreen LCD
  • 40 fps E. Shutter, 15 fps Mech. Shutter
  • 425-Pt. Hybrid AF, AI Subject Detection
  • ProRes & Blackmagic RAW via HDMI
  • CFexpress Type B & SD UHS-II Card Slots

All that is totally irrelevant since that camera has only 26MP and is a different brand.

I really don't see why being a different brand has anything to do with it. Both Fuji and Nikon go to Sony Semiconductor for their sensors. Nikon recently undercut the price of their Flagship FF Z9 compared to the current Flagship FF offerings by Canon and or Sony by an cool Grand. But here you want folks think Nikon can't sell a flagship cropped sensor camera for around the price of the high end Fuji. That's makes little to no sense.

Fuji has an just about loaded, Flagship cropped camera an you want me to believe that Nikon can't do the same at that price or lower. I mean really. Nikon already has the processor for it and just like Canon and Sony have used their top processors in lower models, no doubt Nikon will be doing the same. Also, Rumor has it the the 40mp version of the Fuji will actually cost less than the 26mp version. A good bit less.

The thing is Nikon, together with Canon and Sony, doesn’t have to make a competitor to that super high end Fujifilm X-H2s. Flagships are at the lower end of the population bell curve. The sweet spot for crop is the $750~$1k range. Nikon has answers with the Z30 and Z fc. Then demand drops off drastically from there. It’s the same with full frame. Just as no matter how good the demand for the Z9 is, there will be more demand for the $2k and $3k full frames, with the $2k full frames (Z6/R6/a7iv) being full frame’s sweet spot.

Fujifilm has to make the super high end crop camera because they don’t have full frame to sell. Canon, Nikon and Sony don’t have to make that niche low demand camera. They have the higher demand full frames to sell, which is why I say it’s imperative that Nikon catches up to Canon and Sony in that category and pronto.
