Re: What do you use alongside your Z?

You say no 1 inch buy if you pick up a Nikon 1 system j5 it produces fantastic images that when shooting outdoors you will not be able to tell the difference from it and say a Nikon D500. Indoor it is not far off as well.

Here are some of my J5 galleries.

I have shot it side by side with the D500 many times and the J5 produces great images that are tack sharp and print great. Also with the 70-300 lens, it turns it into an 820mg lens that is fantastic for events and sports better than my D500 was.

I have yet to find another small camera that I would want to use. Looking at the new Nikon Z50 but it is still larger and I would miss the extra zoom I get from the J5.


I started shooting digital back with the first 2MP cameras. Over 20 cameras later still going. I shoot family and people portraits, weddings, Sports and a little of everything.
