vtpeters: The results look impressive. But I'm wondering when and how Adobe will finally make this available to consumers. Will it be integrated in Photoshop and/or in Lightroom's export functionality or will it become a seperate product.

Can't wait to try this on photos that I've shot of scenes where I couldn't get close enough or didn't have a along enough lens...

The article seems to imply that it's a work in progress. But I stand corrected. Thanks.

This mechanisme, besides the fact that it adds yet another moving part that may break, does nothing to prevent another problem for many users: dust entering the camera body and settling on the image sensor.

A DSLR's has the advantage of having a closed shutter in front of the image sensor. And because of the larger flange distance, the risk of hitting the sensor (or shutter) while changing glass is minimal.

But with the mirrorless' shorter flange distances and the image sensor close behind the lens mount and therefore much easier to hit when changing glass, some sort of protection would be a good idea.
But while you're at it, maybe also think of a way to keep dust out of the body and away from the sensor.

rubank: Wouldn´t it be more logical if the Z8s (your suggestion) will have built-in vertical grip, , while the high-res Z8 gets an add-on grip.

My thoughts exactly. Much like in their DSLR line-up, where the high speed (sports) camera has a lower res. sensor and a built-in grip, while the high res. camera provides the option to add a grip.
If Nikon's strategy of card types in DSLR's is somewhat of an indicator of what type of cards will be used in the Z8 and Z8s (as you call it), I think both will have the same combination of card type slots, just like the D850 and the D5/D6 have identical card slots (1 XQD + 1 SD).

I've never had any problem with my memory cards becoming corrupted or failing to work properly. I've had CF cards in my Nikon D700, D3, D810, SD cards in my D810, D750 and D850 and XQD in my D850 and Z6.

In reply to:

Andre Yew: It's great to hear that they're planning on more firmware updates. Did he say how they get feedback about the Z system? For example, do they monitor DPR?

I'm also curious and want to find out a way to channel my suggestions for possible improvements for the Z system to the proper authorities.

Do Nikon executives or firmware developers monitor DPR forums or social media?

vtpeters: Hope Nikon provides an adapter to it's high end AF-S lenses so I could use this mirrorless (if it performs well for my type of photography) with my current set of glass. Otherwise using this camera as a second (or first) body next to my D810 is NOT going to happen any time soon. Abandoning a system and buying into a new system is a very costly affair.

@LightBug
I understand the pronciple of making money.
But I also hope that Nikon understands people's hesitance to buy into a new system (and abandoning the old) with the risk that the new system might not last as long as the old system. Remember Nikon's first attempt at mirrorless cameras?

You are absolutely right ...

No, I don't expect a free upgrade. But I do expect to get a certain percentage discount and pay less for a new version than someone who's previously never paid for the software, as is normal for most other software packages.

I think that's not too much to ask for, is it?

NIK Collection became avaliable for free as of March 24th, 2016. That's not so long ago...

NIK Collection hasn't always been free. I paid € 119,- for it back in 2015.
It only became available for free when Google decided to stop development.

As someone who has invested money into NIK Collection, I hope DxO honers this investment and will offer some sort of upgrade or discount when the new version is released. I have the invoice as prove of purchase...
