"RE: New Nikon Z9 flagship?"

The only thing that feels wrong is the ISO range, going only to 25,600 at the top end.

The D5/D6 go to 102,400, fully two stops more. The D850 and Z7 go up to ISO 25,600.
The Z6 goes to ISO 51,200.

One of the nicest things about shooting the Nikon D series of cameras is if you are an indoor event, theatre, concert, or night sports shooter, your pro body camera can handle the dim conditions in spades from both a gorgeous file and low light excellent autofocus perspective. To me this sounds more like a Z8 rumour

I guess that raises an interesting question about the Z6 II that is about to come out - will its frame rate, high ISO, and low light AF and other specs be commensurate with the needs of the pro indoor/night shooter? If so then then a pro could own a Z6II for the most extreme low light and a Z9 for everything else? It's not a path Nikon has followed in the past, and probably for good reason as they had to allow for the various indoor low light and night sport use cases.

If I am guessing, something I'm not shy to do , something about this rumour doesn't add up. It could just be the ISO range noted in the rumour is wrong on the low side, or this rumour is actually the Z8. And speaking of which if you see where it is noted that "previous rumour was 61 megapixels for this camera". The Z8 had a previous rumour of 61 megapixels not the Z9 as far as I am aware.
