IT'S FAST! Lens left extended, sleep mode, one shutter press wakes the camera and takes the first shot in one second. Grab shots are possible as quickly as they appear. (Fuji X-E3 with 15-45 zoom takes three seconds from shutter press to wake up and extend the lens, then requires a second shutter press to take a picture.)


My first real camera was a Nikon S, bought in Japan in 1960, followed by an F bought in Viet Nam in 1965, many other Nikons, a recent detour into Fuji Land, now back to Nikon, and it feels like home.

I agree, it's a great camera. My first "real" camera also was a Nikon S, given to me by an older cousin in the U.S. Navy who had been stationed in Japan.

I also had a Nikon FE, F3, D70, D750 ... and many other brands in between. I still have my late father's F2, which is displayed prominently on a shelf.

While I use my D750s for paid photo jobs, my Z50 is my every day & travel camera. I wish Nikon would make some fast DX primes for it.
