p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · Z8 Shipping Updates


I ordered my Z8 from Nikon USA and received my order confirmation at 5:14am. No update on whether I will be in the first batch and I am not NPS.

I also ordered from Amazon but it took me a while to find the preorder link. My order confirmation email was at 5:40am and I received an email today stating that my estimated ship date is June 29th 😤.

We leave for Iceland on June 26th so if Iím taking a Z8, itíll have to be from Nikon USA. Fingers crossed 🤞

Anyone else get an update?

They are landing at my LCS on May 25th and they were told they will have enough bodies to fill every preorder (around 100). Way better than the Z9 launch, so far anyway

With the larger retailers like B&H, Amazon, etc. unless they are getting a proportionate allocation (I doubt it) I wouldn't be surprised if the wait is longer.

I'm 19th on a list with an LCS (placed a deposit a week before the announcement). They ordered 100, but they weren't sure how many they are actually getting. We'll find out next week if I get lucky. Non-NPS order.

I wasn't sure of my place in that line, but glad to hear it's somewhere ahead of only 19

It's released on the 25th - why would there be shipping updates?

I saw quite a number of posts mentioning 25th elsewhere.
Locally here, it will go on sale on 26th and my local dealer told me I can pick mine up on the 26th.
The first lot is pretty much reserved already as far as I know over here.

No one I can think of but I'll ask around when out shooting this weekend. Always a few Nikon guys out there.

I got a call from a friend that said he got a call from his dealer, Pictureline in Salt Lake City that his camera was shipping out next day delivery on Thursday. So indeed dealers have some in their stores inventory preparing for the launch date. I know when I ordered my Z8/24-120 lens kit this morning from B&H the rep did mention that they are prepared to ship our initial orders on Thursday morning, since they are closing early at 2pm that day. He also mentioned he had not received any kit orders, all single body orders, so just maybe, I might have a shot at a kit going out. He assured me if that was to happen I'd receive an email confirming shipment by that afternoon for next day delivery. I'm not a betting man so trying my best NOT to get too excited. He said if I miss this shipment another should be following in a few weeks after. Quite a change from the Z9 days.

I haven't heard of a single person that had a dealer preorder that isn't shipping this week, in the US at least.

Just as often has been in the past. There is a "release date" and most dealers will have actual stock of said product IN the store a day or two prior to the allowable delivery date set by the manufacturer. I'd bet dollars to donuts B&H has a load sitting in their warehouse as we speak having labels attached and ready to ship out on Thursday. All the more reason their website has always stated shipping to begin on the 25th. They couldn't say such a thing unless they KNEW they'd have the stock to back it up, promised by Nikon in this case.

Nikon informed me that my Z8 (body only) will arrive at my LCS between May 25-30. I'm an NPS member (lowest tier). I should have it in my hands next week at the latest.

I got my shipping notification an hour ago - now the CanadaPost donkey caravan has to travel across the country. So.... next week sometime. TBH - I'm not impatient in this case at all - it will be exactly the same performance / IQ as the Z9 with worse battery life but less weight.

update: expected delivery Wednesday 31st. Slow donkey caravan because I don't want to pay extra for 2 day shipping.
