Glad I waited...the Z5 is officially here

Well, I've been planning on getting the Z6 for over a year now, but with the release of the Z5, I'm glad I didn't jump on the bandwagon back then.

The Z5 is almost everything I'm looking for - first of all, I don't video shoot, I don't need a more weatherproof body, and secondly, I wasn't a big fan of the single memory card slot, or the XQD form factor.  Don't get me wrong, I really like the XQD format and need the speed for wildlife shooting with the D500, but don' t need that fast write speed for the purpose of a FF camera and its use.

The Z5 doesn't have a top LCD display, which is a bummer, but I will try and 'live' without.  It doesn't have Back Side Illumination as well, but don't think the impact will be that significant.

I like the 3 inch 24-50mm 'kit' lens that comes with it - nice and compact body and lens for travelling.

I perhaps will wait just a bit longer and wait for the free FTZ adapter promotions that they have offered for the Z6 and Z6 bundles....

Feels great to finally get off the fence!

Cheers
