I have a D500 whose screen died. All these connectors are covered by crappy plastic covers that flop around while you're using the connectors, and have to be snapped-in carefully when you're done so they stay down. Both cameras offer a resolution of 45.4 megapixels. In this buying guide we’ve rounded up all the current interchangeable lens cameras costing under $1000 and recommended the best. Wonder if they will use Ashton Kutcher to promote them? @bernardlangIf I was exclusively a Canon shooter why would I want an A9?The R5 has more than adequate AF and fps for professional sport work. As the name implies, this is a refinement rather than a reimagining; so while the updates may not knock your socks off, we really enjoyed the original Z7 and this new model builds on an already successful formula. Poo! For now, see my complete Nikon Z7 review for the performance of the Z7. Earlier this week we published our samples from the new Sigma 65mm F2 DG DN when mounted on a Sony body. Different compression ratios (quality settings) selectable at all sizes except 3,840Â ÃÂ 2,160, 1,920Â ÃÂ 1,080 119.88p/100p, and 1,920Â ÃÂ 1,080 slow-mo, where quality is fixed at high. @bernardlang:,,,,,,"But it’s fairly easy to tell apart legitimate photographers facing a real issue from forum trolls. It is the mirrorless D850 and much more. But from an AF speed perspective, I don't think so. LOL! If you have a Nikon, great. @Kona Mike, NOW YOU'RE TALKING! There are a lot of photo/video cameras that have found a role as B-cameras on professional productions or A-camera for amateur and independent productions. As we continue to test Nikon's update of its multimedia full-framer, we've added more of our findings so far on image quality, dynamic range and video quality. I really hope the eye auto focus has caught up with Sony's. Superior Nikon color rendition. Canon R5 seems like the mirrorless 'D850' in 2020. Nikon Z7 flipping 3.2" LCD, Z7 II is the same. $2999 (body only), $3499 (w/24-70 F4 lens), 5408 x 3600 (DX crop), 6880 x 5504 (5:4), 5504 x 5504 (1:1), 8256 x 4640 (16:9), Front-curtain sync, slow sync, rear-curtain sync, red-eye reduction, red-eye reduction with slow sync, slow rear-curtain sync, off, Dario's desk (because I don't have one) by adriparro, 4K/60p video with 93% coverage of the sensor, or a ~1.08x crop, 5-axis in-body stabilization (3-axis with adapted F-mount lenses), 10fps burst shooting with single-point AF, 1 CFExpress / XQD card slot, 1 UHS-II SD card slot, New EN-EL15c battery, CIPA rated to 420 shots (LCD), 360 shots (EVF), Compatible with new MB-N11 battery grip with vertical controls, 3840 x 2160 @ 60p / 144 Mbps, MOV, H.264, Linear PCM, 3840 x 2160 @ 50p / 144 Mbps, MOV, H.264, Linear PCM, 3840 x 2160 @ 30p / 144 Mbps, MOV, H.264, Linear PCM, 3840 x 2160 @ 25p / 144 Mbps, MOV, H.264, Linear PCM, 3840 x 2160 @ 24p / 144 Mbps, MOV, H.264, Linear PCM, 1920 x 1080 @ 120p / 144 Mbps, MOV, H.264, Linear PCM, 1920 x 1080 @ 100p / 144 Mbps, MOV, H.264, Linear PCM, 1920 x 1080 @ 60p / 56 Mbps, MOV, H.264, Linear PCM, 1920 x 1080 @ 50p / 56 Mbps, MOV, H.264, Linear PCM, 1920 x 1080 @ 30p / 28 Mbps, MOV, H.264, Linear PCM, 1920 x 1080 @ 25p / 28 Mbps, MOV, H.264, Linear PCM, 1920 x 1080 @ 24p / 28 Mbps, MOV, H.264, Linear PCM. Could Nikon have gone further with this update? I would love to see a mirrorless body about the same height or slightly shorter than my D850 but larger than my Z6. nikon refuses to spend r&d money on electromagnetic focus motor technology, they are not competitive. Actually in many dimensions it is ahead. Buy only from the approved sources I use myself for the best prices, service, return policies and selection. The rear camera (or cameras) on an iPhone has all the latest bells and whistles, but how do you use them to capture a selfie or record a video of yourself? Canon has a professional mirrorless lens lineup that leaves Nikon and even Sony in the dust. The Z 7II is a full frame, 45.7 MP camera with dual processors, 4K UHD video at 60p and two card slots. Superior Nikon image quality for colors and dynamic range. I am ready to check with you on the whole range at F2.8 if the Nikon is superior to the Sigma on a Z7 with an adapter ring and without activated profile. But I doubt anything you said about Nikon is probably true. My assertion is that corporate finances mean Sony and Canon have a lower risk of outright failure, and meanwhile can support much higher R&D budgets which means they will continue to pull ahead in new innovations -- lenses and cameras. Of course we can see and magnify and playback and set menus in the finder, something no DSLR does. now 2 years after the initial release of the Nikon mirrorless line FINALLY I feel Nikon has released a mirrorless body which gives me a reason NOT to pull the trigger on a D850 and to move into the Z series. Dark Church, October 2018, 2:16 P.M. Nikon Z7, Nikon 24-70mm f/4 Z at 24mm, f/4 hand-held at 1/25 at Auto ISO 140, Perfectly Clear v3.6. Multiple Exposures (standard, average, lighten or darken modes). Instead of having a newly designed processor, they’ve reused two older ones, taking up a lot more room on the board. The Z7 II has a full-frame sensor in a camera that weighs less than a DX D7500, and is built to the same standards as the D850. :). Nikon just today released new firmware 3.12 for previous Nikon cameras. Sony has many amazing lenses. I plan to buy one as I do a lot of studio / portrait. Interesting on the processor. I wouldn’t mind an f1.4 lens being T1.5, but for an f1.2 lens to be only 1.5 is disappointing. @Magnar W, then you definitely have a severe reading comprehension problem because I didn’t say anything you claim I did. Daylight fill flash works great so long as you have enough flash power, and indoor flash fill is usually limited by your ability to gel (color-balance) your flash to match the ambient light and set the best exposure ratio. Having followed cameras for long enough it’s funny to see how this or that spec is “the thing of the day”. So people get emotionally attached to the club they’ve joined. bigger. @MILC MAN:I guess Nikon users are lucky to be able to adapt all these wonderful FE lenses using the Techart adapter then. Personally, my socks (or at least, my house slippers... covid times, after all) are still firmly on my feet, but that doesn't mean that the Z7 II isn't an excellent camera. Potential buyers should just be aware that the spec sheet is a misleading description of its actual real life level of performance on several of the specs that apparently distinguish it from competition. My buddy had one and I tried it out. I have the feeling that Nikon did not know (wanted?) The Z7 II will be available in December 2020 for $2999 body-only, or $3599 with a 24-70mm F4 lens. The market is shrinking and profits are low, so development will be low as well. The 100-500mm? The real question is why were you logged out... @armandino:Well, the only viewers I call objective are those with a first hand experience of different camera systems to understand their actual value as photographic tools, which includes ergonomics, lenses,... And being one of them (Nikon, Sony, Fuji G) I see many of their comments as being extremely biased against Nikon:- they systematically over emphasize Nikon issues and downplay huge pluses starting with lens quality which, in the end, is the main thing photography really is about. This camera's lack of innovation shows me it's time to jump ship from Nikon and upgrade to Canon rather than throw more money at the number-three camera brand. @bernardlang - "The 135mm f1.8 behaves the same on the Z7 as it does on Sony". What about insane people like myself who use all three systems? Like it or not. Nothing rivals the Z, for about same price as the Canon R6 you are getting the 45 megapixel z7ii, and the z6ii at 2k is miles better than the A73. Yes, sample variation is a reality and all mass produced items from all manufacturers suffer from it. So you do not get necessarily a better lens that you are "happy" to pay double the cost of the new F mount lens for at all.Combine that with the sad fact that they are charging everybody who buys Z 520 instead of 200 for the same 50mm F1.8 lens and that the old F mount D lens costs even less new and factor in that the G lens new was launched at 130new and has risen in cost by 50% to 200 and "I am sure you understand" that you do not get a better house when house prices rise, you just have to pay a lot more for the same house that focusses slower anyway. I was right.The Nikon Z7II is the camera that should have been released two years ago...I am very disappointed. The Laowa 15mm F4.5 Zero-D Shift lens lets you shift perspective without moving the camera, correct for converging lines and more. "The arrival of a new battery grip with duplicate controls (!) They don't necessarily need a new processor. The Z7 II is marvelous for nature, landscapes, posed portraits, science, architecture and just about everything except groups of people, sports or action. The low-light sensitivity of the Nikon Z7 II goes down to -3 EV, whereas the Z7 is limited to -2 EV – that’s a full stop of difference. The R5 is not fast enough for that in FF ES-mode, but does real good otherwise. And my a9II has one that is famously not great. No voice notes like the Nikon D5 or Canon EOS R5. This is a true hybrid camera. Canon EF is 44.00mm and Nikon F is 46.5mm, so there is always enough room for someone to machine an adapter ring to go between anything and this new Nikon Z mount. TL;DR: Nikon has a lot more distortion and does not beat Canon for sharpness. The Sigma 65mm F2 DG DN is for the photographer who wants a focal length that falls squarely between 50mm and 85mm. I think that we pretty much agree in the end. It's great people like you who allow me to keep adding to this site full-time. Now, as the year winds down, we're highlighting some of our standout products of the year. Programmable for high and low limits from ISO 64 to ISO 104,800. You may prefer just to set it manually. I own the R5 but I do not plan in getting any RF glass any time soon. That ‘s the reason why all manufacturers went from 28-70 to 24-70 15 years ago. by systematically realising bug full cameras, nikon is ruling its reputation and loosing customers for good. Rated 24.9Â oz. Yes shorter processes (like 7m vs 10nm or 14nm) do make things faster, but in the case of the camera, this was mainly to split up the load, which I think it's better to have two processors (think of it as two cores) than one super powerful processor that runs hot(ter). The flash level balances with ambient light. https://photographylife.com/14-bit-vs-12-bit-raw. So, Sony and Canon guys, don’t worry about the inferiority or superiority of your brands. The lenses for the D850 cost much much less than the same lenses in the Z mount.From experience I very much doubt that the new Z lenses are better lenses, or more useful, or will last longer/as long etc, and I would have thought that like Apple and their machinery we would get the equivalent for the same money, or less, instead of the new system mount being the means by which Nikon hoick their prices and hoick on their prospective buyers, and at a time when already the cost of lenses is rising, dare I say it, like Covid victims, exponentially. It seems from two reviews the AF and general speed of the camera has gone up significantly. I don't think they can afford to put a new processor in these cameras because of price and production issues. Silver Maple Motel Office, October 2018, 6:35 P.M. Nikon Z7, Nikon 24-70mm f/4 Z at 48mm, f/4 hand-held at 1/13 at Auto ISO 200, Perfectly Clear v3.6. Oddly the top OLED stays on the whole time but doesn't show elapsed time, just the set aperture and ISO. Even with a 50% battery I've seen some great speed out of it, granted I don't use that mode very often. In APSC, you keep 26 mpx, which is very reasonable. Well, I am not sure they have a lot of catching up to do honestly. If the product performs well, customers don't care if it's single or dual processor. The cameras sound excellent. "Again, it’s probably fine for hobbyists, is a well informed pro wiling to risk a paid assignment on this? - IMO there are three reasons for the behavior. (the finder does have auto brightness control). So pour a tall cold one and get ready to treat yourself, 2020 style. Some have said the Z7 II (and Z6 II) don't offer a huge speed bump in AF performance. Nikon has just announced the Z7 II, the second iteration of its high-resolution full-frame mirrorless camera. What I am saying is that the improvements in the Z7II are too incremental to be worth $3000 for me, but if they had included geotagging, that would have been a compelling enough reason for me to upgrade. The Z6 II and Z7 II, on the other hand, both give the option of a vertical grip that provides a much more ergonomically comfortable handling. I'd get mine at: Z7 II body-only: $2,997 at Adorama, at Amazon, at B&H and at Crutchfield. Why is Fuji one of the only ones who has figured out how to include THREE total batteries when using a battery grip? But we’re not just talking about tools either. On a DSLR, a slight increase in body thickness from a more-complicated rear screen might reduce eye relief or worsen other ergonomics, because of prism constraints. @bernardlang"Even the king, the a9II gets its more often wrong than right. But its hard to recommend because of its finances. https://alikgriffin.com/nikon-z7-eye-af-better-than-sony-a7riv/. If it represents a small part of the frame it’s totally fine. This entry was posted in Nikon Lenses, Nikon Z7 II and tagged Nikkor Z 50mm f/1.2 S, Nikon wireless remote controller WR-R11a, Nikon wireless remote controller WR-R11b, Nikon WR-T10, Nikon Z7 II. @bernardlang I'm not sure where your "data" is coming from, but not reality. It bases the finder brightness only on the light hitting the sensor, so it changes depending on the direction you're pointing the camera (even on playback), and varies wildly when using adapted manual focus lenses, even Nikon's own manual-focus lenses on the FTZ. With a lot of work you can get close though. It’s borderline false advertising to call this a 12 fps camera. The EVF is the same as Sony's, except that this Nikon has poor automatic brightness control inferior to Sony. I could not say it any better than DPR:...while the updates may not knock your socks off....2 years later they now have 2 card slots and a working grip!Keep my feet from dancing ! I already use a Z6 looking forward to my pre-ordered Z7II with Grip! Death's Workshop, October 2018, 2:42 P.M. Nikon Z7, Nikon 24-70mm f/4 Z at 24mm, f/8 hand-held at 1/4 at Auto ISO 64, Perfectly Clear v3.6. It also works with other brands of lenses in Canon EF mount, adapting them to Nikon Z. Nikon Z7 with W-NIKKOR•C 3.5cm f/1.8 (1956~1964). You don't need and can't use the FTZ Adapter with rangefinder lenses. Nikon Z6 II and Z7 II: what you need to know, Nikon Z6 II and Z7 II boast dual processors and gain a second card slot, Sigma 65mm F2 DG DN Sample Gallery (DPReview TV), Sigma 35mm F2 DG DN Sample Gallery (DPReview TV), Laowa 15mm F4.5 Zero-D Shift lens sample gallery (DPReview TV). Some GM lenses like my 135mm f1.8, widely considered as the best Sony lens, are very good but still not at S glass level. bigger. Because the autonomy of Fuji cameras is very disappointing :( Nikon is a little better, but Sony is really far ahead. So I am not sure what you are referring to. Most of the naysayers are not photographers. 1/8,000 ï½ 32 seconds in P, S, A and M modes. Historically? F, AI , AI'd, AI-s, AF and AF-D lenses, many of which Nikon still sells new today, work much better on any FX DSLR like a D750. The DX 16-50 and DX 50-250mm are superb lenses, and the Z7 II automatically crops its sensor to DX, but by doing this you're throwing away more than half your sensor area. Front and rear dials are harder and less grippy. I fell this sums up the reason the z6ii/z7ii came out the way they are instead of how Sony is doing with the a7iv. Besides what you need to compare is the price at launch compensated for inflation. Would you kindly post some of your pictures on your gallery so we can see you are a "real photographer"? Red and Blue Window, October 2018, 6:29 P.M. Nikon Z7, Nikon 24-70mm f/4 Z at 37mm, f/4 hand-held at 1/40 at Auto ISO 1,100, Perfectly Clear v3.6. Connectors specifications top I am not sure I would call that benchmark/reference performance for action photography. DPR comments are like a childish pantomime most of the time. Nikon Z7 II has external dimensions of 134 x 101 x 70 mm (5.28 x 3.98 x 2.76″) and weighs 705 g (1.55 lb / 24.87 oz) (including batteries). "So no, at Sony, if you can't buy a 24-70 F2.8 at 2100$, you buy a Sigma at 1200$. With F-mount non-VR lenses the camera corrects roll, pitch and yaw. AF Tracking is useful in many situations and not just for fast action (the ball in football/soccer for instance). - What issues are you talking about?- F mount lenses work great on Z bodies, already the Z6/Z7 and there is no doubt that it's going to work even better on the Z6II/Z7II- If there is one thing Nikon is great at is to understate the value of their cameras...- There is no viewfinder resolution issue, the viewfinder of the Z7 was already better than then 5.6 pixel viewfinder of the a7rIV. Not 100%, but the D850, although it was by far the best focusing generalist DSLR, wasn't any close to 100% either, even with careful lens AF tuning. It has a 55mm inner diameter, larger than the old F mount, and has a flange focal distance of only 16.00mm. The Nikon Z7 is supported by the original CamRanger, CamRanger Mini, and CamRanger 2. Raw video and eye AF were definitely not announced when the Z6/Z7 were introduced. If the on spec perfo is higher (which has been clearly demonstrated) and the sample variation is the same, the average actual performance of samples will be higher. Flash exposures are very good, and the biggest limitation is your skill at lighting. The Z7 II is poor for fast-moving group photos because its face recognition can't identify the correct face and it's too slow for action. Same as it was in HiFi where companies would compete, reviewers would review, and fans would debate, as to who best reproduces sounds beyond the range of human hearing. Nikon Z7 flipping 3.2" LCD, Z7 II is the same. The 24mm F3.5, 35mm F2 and 65mm F2 DG DN share similar designs and have weather-sealed metal bodies. Let's take a look at how the Nikon Z7 II stacks up against some other stabilized, full-frame cameras on the market. The SB-400 was discontinued; no worry, you can get them on eBay for under $100 (seeÂ How to Win at eBay). I never believe posters like you who say they are Nikon DSLR users but at the drop of a hat say you will go to Sony for a spurious reason. Take a look. Now, realistically speaking what is going to generate major changes of brand at this point and what were causes historically and what shift of brand did they generate? The one I kept was a sharp third lens that was secondhand. This CA number is btw lower than the Zeiss Otus... What is much most interesting to me is the T stop. We didn't find many wizards or scarecrows, but we did see plenty of lizards and landscape scenes along the Australian coast. LV -3 ~ +17 with an f/1.4 lens at 20Âº C. Auto eye sensor selects read LCD or finder. The only lenses it can currently not use are the Canon RF and L mount lenses (but many of the L mount lenses are available in FE mount). It flips up and down, but doesn't flip 180º so you can't use it for self-portraits. I really like that idea of a vent port that a battery grip can attach to. Best Smartphone Gimbal (DJI OM 4, Zhiyun Smooth XS, Moza Mini MX). Good thing I'm not in a big hurry. Of particular note is just how competitive the Z7 II's MSRP is right at launch. @Paul_Takes_Photo:No Canon doesn’t, quite the opposite in fact:- the 3 most important lenses in a pro line up are the f2.8 zooms and the Nikon S are superior to their Canon RF equivalents- Canon’s line up of prîmes has holes in it and the only 2 lenses that compare are the expensive f1.2 50 + 85. Yes. includes controls for portrait-orientation shooting. AF is a complex and multi-facet topic. @ionbarOf course, so it would still take years before Nikon would eventually decide to open its system to Sigma or Tamron. They include the addition of face / eye detection in the 'Wide area AF' mode instead of just 'Auto Area AF'; this means you can place an AF box over a person's face to tell the camera to focus on that particular person's eyes, which is especially handy if there are multiple people in a scene. Enter the Ulanzi ST-09, an adjustable mount that allows you to turn an Apple Watch into a live viewfinder on the rear of your iPhone. In-camera sensor-shift image-stabilization rated for 5 stops improvement. One could also add the possibility to control the size of focusing points. It’s like you’re having a conversation with yourself. How-To 170º viewing.

Some worthwhile improvements, but why still no dual-tilt on the rear viewfinder screen? The very fact that you think I could be stupid enough to claim ownership of an a9II without actually owning one says a lot about your system of values. Besides you will also need a 24-70mm f2.8 and won’t buy both. Contact, these links to my personally approved sources I've used myself for way over 100 combined years, approved sources I've used myself for decades, shooting test charts in your mom's basement, Sample Images from the Z7, which uses the same sensor, use Nikon, LEICA and other rangefinder lenses, original S-mount Nikon rangefinder lenses, page on what works and doesn't work with Nikon's FTZ adapter, basic adapters cheap direct from China over eBay for just about any kind of lens, Nikon's original 1940s-1960s rangefinder lenses, Adapting Rangefinder Lenses to Nikon Mirrorless, which was poor in the Z7 if you expect it to locate or track subjects automatically, Medium-Format vs. Full-Frame Image-Quality Comparison, Canon has made huge strides with vastly superior cameras and many brilliant lenses today. Nikon ergonomics are all about usability and how it feels in the hand, not about “how it looks”. However today in 2020 I can't recommend the Nikon mirrorless system because in the more than two years since the Z system first launched Canon has made huge strides with vastly superior cameras and many brilliant lenses today. I am sure you understand that inflation causes an increase of the costs that must be reflected in the price for the company to protect its margin. The Sigma 24-70mm f2.8 is good and is excellent value but not at the level of the 24-70mm f2.8 S. This may not be a problem for what you do but still remains a fact. Use the FTZ adapter only with Nikon's newest lenses with a built-in AF motor (AF-S and AF-P). We supposed that the Z6&Z7s will have same sensors as the first gen - was the confirmation of this a surprise? See all the details at Nikon FTZ Compatibility & Review. Now under $4,000 with the Spring Sales, the Fujifilm GFX 50R is awesome.

On the other hand On sensor AF is the future because turns the sensor into a real-time instruments, feeding to the processing unit far more information than what a dedicated phase detect sensor can. I don't care to have my photos tagged, so I'll never use it. I still use f-mount lenses on the Z. Some FE lenses are very good, but overall they lack a bit compared to canon and even more Nikon. bigger, full-resolution or camera-original Â© JPG file. Amazing - love the ISO's of 64 and even a sort-of ISO 32.Can only imagine how good this imaging device is. Neither is as straightforward as the built-in geotagging on my Leicas or D5300. Besides, the equipment that’s best for one person may not be relevant for another. Of course, it is easy to take out the brand new processor from pants and put it into a new camera. Technical Editor Richard Butler's pick was the unusual lens that gave him the opportunity to try something new. The short flange focal distance means we can use Nikon, LEICA and other rangefinder lenses from the 1920s through today. The Nikon Z7 II, along with its faster and less expensive sister the Nikon Z6 II, has the same great Nikon feel and handling we've all come to love â except now in mirrorless form! Not always. "I would wager that only a small population of pros that really need dual card slots or a battery grip might consider it.". They are not behind. If you can't, you buy a Tamron 28-75 F2.8 at $650. The original Nikon Z7 would slow down after a few seconds… Second, the autofocus system has been improved quite a bit. Donate Truth be told, though, the real-world difference between 45.7MP and, say, 61MP isn't likely to be a deal-breaker; the extra dynamic range from the Nikon's ISO 64 mode, though, may be. This Nikon combo should be perfect for me. The Primoplan 75mm F1.9 II is a redesign of the original Primoplan 75mm F1.9 designed in 1936. Currently I use a Sony RX100 VI and love the focal length but find the contrast and dynamic range to be lacking at times, particularly at longer focal lengths. This makes them even better and it seems from first reviews the AF speed and low light has had quite a significant upgrade. Blessedly, though (especially for those of us that moderate online comment sections), Nikon has included dual card slots in the Z7 II for users that need immediate backup or want to easily separate their still images and video clips. https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.tappytaps.android.geotagphotospro2&hl=en&gl=US. Thanks, but damn now I have some difficult decisions about the D850 and all my glass. Gallery New I think that nikon app for iphone snapbridge can geotag. For example, comparing the Nikon Z 7 II to the Sony a7R IV and the Canon EOS R5, seems like a valid topic. Manual-focus lenses work much better on any FX DSLR than on the FTZ. Manual brightness control only. Computational photography has already come to cameras; a few examples are the eye AF for people and the eye AF for animals. 19mm T/SE? Nikon has officially confirmed the existence of the long-rumored full-frame mirrorless Nikon Z6 II and Z7 II in a countdown page on its website.

They do all that awesome stuff, they know it can't be seen in the tech specs but their marketing is pretty much silent about it, they don't really explain why they did things, and when asked rather defend themselves then promote it. Pre-order now. Links I assume that you think that the vertical grips of corresponding Sony or Canon cameras are just as useless? The dual Expeed 6 processors show some of Nikon’s financial problems. Maybe you should be worrying about other things? Really with today's cameras, if you can't find something you like to use and get the shot, that's on you. I'm inclined to wait until the 2021 Tokyo Olympics or whenever they release a proper Z8 or other high-end model, and I suspect D850 users will as well. As previously reported, Nikon will announce two new mirrorless cameras (Z6 II and Z7 II) on October 14.From Explora:. If you really are a Nikon shooter (which I honestly doubt), you own yourself to test the Z7II. New EN-EL15c battery works with the same chargers as older versions. IMO there is not a huge difference, for the A9 there is virtually no difference. Two concerns: is the eye AF competitive?
