The Nikon D780 is Just Part of the Company’s CES 2020 Announcements

With the Nikon D780, photographers are getting a 24.5MP BSI BMOS sensor at the heart of a full-frame DSLR.

We honestly didn’t think we’d see new DSLR cameras beyond what was already announced this year, but Nikon is proving us wrong with the new Nikon D780. This camera is a step above the Nikon D750, which will continue to be sold. After the break, we have the specs you care about, along with all the details of Nikon’s newest lenses.
