Re: I went all in with the z system

I just got the z5 a couple of days ago so I can only give you my first impressions.  I think it will work reasonably well  in good light if you use the new 24-50mm lens.  This combo is light weight only slightly bigger than a fuji xt-4 although for street photography I think Fuji has the advantage in two points, their fixed lens like the 23mm and 35mm are tiny next to Nikon and their in camera Acros is terrific.  I sold the fuji s to raise the money to buy the additional Nikon equipment so I do think the Nikon will do but I kept my Panasonic LX100ii to do black and white street photography, look it up and I am posting a couple of shots showing the image quality bw right out of the camera no photoshop.

But since I will be doing more landscape photography the Nikon clearly has the advantage for large blow ups

So yes I would use z5 for color but Panasonic, Fuji, or Ricoh would be a better choice for in camera not post processing black in white street photograhy
