zakaria: Mirrorless is a big lie.
Bodies are big and lenses also.
Mirrorles designers are thinking of classic cameras during the design their mirroless versions.

Mirrorless medium format cameras can have a dimensional advantage. Look at Hasselblad X1D with 45 mm lens.

milkod2001: Large lens mount gives option to make super fast lenses under f1 but can at super high price nobody literary nobody will care about apart from camera lenses collectors.

50 and 35 1.8S are already very large lenses. I think Nikon is completely killing one of the main mirrorless advantages which is smaller and lighter camera & lenses. Can Nikon make the same size and optically same lenses as 24 1.4GM or 85 1.4GM, 12-24 4G etc?

Canon is going the same route as Nikon. Look at the size of 50 1.2R. It is a monster lens.

What is the point of getting Canikon mirrorless system if you end up with such big and heavy system? If you don't do video there is no point to switch from existing Canikon system you already have.

If we look at Nikkor Z 50/1.8 S MTF Chart we can see that this lens has, for example, M10 value = 0.96 from 0 mm to 18 mm and M10 value = 0.90 at 20 mm.
Z lenses offer outstanding performance at the edges.
This could also justify the high size of the Z lenses.

I was thinking about Z lenses that could cover full frame and bigger sensors with an adequate image circle.

Perhaps they look at larger sensors in the next future.

And how about the ability to use larger sensors (medium format) in the next future?
I can see excellent opportunities for Nikon engineers.

In my opinion best prime lens for Nikon FF is the Nikon 50/1.4 G.
I use this lens mounted on a D700 and results are excellent (natural color rendition and sharpness).

In reply to:

chrom: A common thing I'm reading is that the difference between FF and small MF is less than the difference between APSC and FF. That's true in terms of relative sizes, but what about absolute sizes?

APSC sensors are 23.5mm x 15.5mm. That's an area of 364.25 square mm.

FF sensors are 35.9mm x 24mm. That's an area of 861.6 square mm.

Small MF sensors like the GFX are 43.8mm x 32.8mm. That's an area of 1436.64 square mm.

The difference between APSC and FF is 497.35 square mm. The difference between small MF and FF is 575.04 square mm.

I'm not trying to troll, I really want to know. Which is the more important figure to look at here: relative or absolute?

For Under The Sun : if you have the chance test GF110/2 lens for portrait and give us the results.

I'm using with satisfaction Silver Efex Pro 2, HDR Efex Pro 2, Color Efex Pro 4.
How nice it would a Capture NX new version with Nik Collection inside!

In reply to:

cesaregal: D7200's live view AF sensitivity (about 2 EV) and live view autofocus time (about 1,86 sec) aren't good results.
We hope for better results from d7500's EXPEED 5 image processor.
Little lower resolution insn't a big problem in my advise.
A long autofocus time is a big problem instead.

sandy b, thanks for the link. Measurements I've read refer to a D7200 with a 28/1.8 lens and exhibit a Live View AF delay =1,58 sec in good light conditions and =1,86 sec in low light conditions.

In reply to:

GabrielZ: My favorite types of photography are landscape and macro. So the increased DOF of the smaller sensor, combined with compact size, low weight, ability to change lenses and relatively affordable price, would suit me quite well. But I want to wait for a full review to see how image quality measures up. And hope that down the line Nikon releases a real macro lens for this system.

Nikon FT-1 mount adapter allows Nikkor F-mount lenses to be used on V2.
Then Nikon shooter improves own gear capabilities.
He gains greater telephoto lens magnification in wildlife photography.
He gains video capabilities.
He can use F-mount macro lenses on V2 too.
V2 is well complementary to Nikon DSRL cameras and to Nikkor F-mount lenses.
V2 is an ideal camera for Nikon shooters.

I have ideal camera : Nikon D700.
I need an AF Leica Elmarit 28/2.8 or an AF Zeiss Distagon 21/2.8 for D700
and a Nikon 400/5.6.
That's all.
