The announcement of Nikon’s new D780 demonstrates that the company hasn’t given up on DSLRs just yet. The successor to the D750 (which Nikon says is its best-selling full-frame camera) borrows heavily from the Z6 mirrorless camera, with a few things from the D5 as well.
The D780 features a 24.5MP BSI-CMOS sensor – likely the same as in the Z6 – which features on-sensor phase detection. That means that in live view you’ll get dramatically improved autofocus compared to previous Nikon DSLRs, plus face and eye detection. When shooting through the viewfinder you’ll have a 51-point AF system backed with the higher-resolution metering sensor and algorithms from the D5.
