A fine set of pictures as always. With Google maps I was able to see your walk.

Did you test the weatherproofing of the Nikon?

Inadvertently, yes, to some extent at least, although I bottled out after about 20 minutes of moderately heavy rain and put the camera away. According to Roger Cicala's Z7 teardown the weather sealing is the best he's disassembled, so there's some evidence to be confident about it, but you know, new camera and all, I would hate to wreck it in the first week.

If you're interested, this was the actual route (clockwise direction)...

In other news my 24-200 has just arrived. The obligatory brick wall test indicates it has no obvious defects and compares very closely to my 24-70 f/4.0 and from this quick test appears to be noticably sharper across the frame than both my old but excellent 28-70 f/2.8 AF-S and 70-200 f/2.8 AF-S. I feel a short walk coming on to see how this pans out in the field.
