Re: Update: An unexpected opportunity.

So here I was at the Brandenburg Gate in Berlin taking some photos with my D810 and 14-24. A guy walks up to me and hands me a camera and gestures for me to take a photo of he and his wife in front of the gate. I put the camera to my eye and immediately see that it is a mirrorless camera. Face detection was enabled so I frame and take a couple of shots.

I hand the camera back and ask; "SONY" and the reply (in German) "Nien; NIKON" I am stunned as I didn't expect that. "NIKON Z7 mit 24-70" was the next response.

So I compared the size of the two side by side and there is a noticeable difference. It did feel quite good in my hands and the controls felt familiar. However I was less that enamoured by the EVF.

This was the first time I have had the Z7 in my hands and maybe I need to spend more time with it but at the moment, my DSLR is still my preferred option.
