  • Thanks for the images, Lance. My personal thoughts on this has less to do with the actual lenses but the focal lengths. In the composition you presented, it lends itself better to the longer focal ...
  • Totally understand. Given your current situation my personal inclination would be to stick with m43 and add either the 75 f/1.8 or 35-100 f/2.8, as you’ve rightly concluded. As an aside, I used to ...
  • Hi Sundre, I happen to have a G9 and a Z6 II and so I thought my experience might be relevant to you. As others have pointed out, just use the equivalent settings to give you an idea of the ...
  • Not sure how well Zfc is selling but anecdotal reports look good. However I don’t think these figures reflect Zfc sales since Q1 is from April-June and Zfc only just shipped.
  • Yes, I think Nikon are a bit on the conservative side but I was just wondering out loud at the concept and feasibility. Perhaps an idea that needs tech to catch-up to the point where e-shutters are ...
  • I can see the body style going either way but suppose they wanted a high resolution model that would challenge MF, then I wonder what sensor choices they’d have. Would a multi aspect ratio sensor ...
  • There’s a serial number database around for Nikon products. It relies on public submissions so take it as a best guess. http://www.photosynthesis.co.nz/nikon/serialno.html
  • You just might get your wish, maybe sooner rather than later. There're an awfully lot of published 70-200 f/4 patent designs by Nikon popping up lately.
  • Replied in Z9 (and Z8)
    Not feel better but it certainly makes it clearer because it is not at all obvious to a layman that these platform’s internal designs are only specific to the sensor format. So yes, calling a Z50 ...
  • Replied in Z9 (and Z8)
    Sure. So what makes the Z50 platform more suitable for a Z90 than the Z6/7 platform when the eventual camera might end up closer to a Z6/7 in size and perhaps sharing the same EVF, battery, ...
  • Replied in Z9 (and Z8)
    I should have made it clear that I meant currently , whether Nikon has already developed a smaller IBIS unit for DX that will fit in the current Z50 platform. I'm very sure their engineers are up ...
  • Replied in Z9 (and Z8)
    I'm sure a smaller IBIS unit is already under development for the Z50 II so Nikon should be able to fit a unit into this platform at some point in the future. How much longer I'm not sure but I ...
  • Replied in Z9 (and Z8)
    I didn’t see this reply before. My plan would only work if Sony Semi was working on a stacked FF sensor for their catalog anyways. If not, then I agree that Nikon would be missing a sensor that ...
  • Replied in Z9 (and Z8)
    Ok you’ve lost me here. I think the Z6/7 type platform would be the minimal size required as I think ibis will be a must but unless you’re saying a z50 platform will have no issues fitting ibis. An ...
  • Replied in Z9 (and Z8)
    What body do you think the Z90 should be in? A Z6/7 body with more bells and whistles? What would those bells and whistles entail? I’ll be very interested in that IMX671AQR. Is it similar to the ...
  • Replied in Z9 (and Z8)
    Well FWIW I do think they should do a retro FX to pick up those extra customers. I won’t argue this point further since I don’t have the expertise in manufacturing to do so but I do wonder why ...
  • Replied in Z9 (and Z8)
    Doing retro at this price point just wouldn’t work imo. But a larger body isn’t limited to just a potential better fit for a customer with larger hands. Removing a size constraint surely allows ...
  • Sure, but you're cherry picking a little here. The Sony 50mm f/1.2 is excellent but one of its design consideration is keeping it relatively compact. So of course something has to give. I know you ...
  • Replied in Z9 (and Z8)
    I have a slightly different take. And it's the Sony Semi catalogue 4/3 IMX472 that has me intrigued. My take would be: Z9 - 45MP in-house stacked sensor. Highest level AF. Integrated grip. Approx $6.5k
  • Replied in Z9 (and Z8)
    I disagree here. I don’t think it’s about the Z7 line not being respected enough. Imo it’s more that the Z6/7 was always intended as the compact FX body. So a non-compact FX body can exist that ...
