First crack at shooting event with new Z6 and z 50mm 1.8 s
18

So received my Z6 and Nikkor Z 50mm 1.8 s last weekend and had a chance to use it at the weekend. Loved it. Was a bit worried as I shoot with D5 and D850. Had not problem whatsoever with captioning the action with Z6 and able to focus across the frame was great help with framing the shots. So D850 is going and Z6 is definitely a keeper at least for me. Btw Face and eye detection worked wonders for me while shooting action 🙌

Congrats!!!

You will really enjoy the Z6, the low light focusing is now amazing with the recent firmware upgrade. This will really come in handy when you shoot events at some of the darker Crossfit Boxes.

BTW, where was this event?

Very nice, I am debating if Z7 or Z6 (I have a recalled Z7 already).

Your shots make a case for a z6 very clear!

Those shots are superb and the quality is just stunning. Another lens I need to add to my wish list - I think I'll have to sell some older gear to pay for the 50mm.

Amazon have it at a pretty good price at the moment - in fact I'm going to order it right now
