moinmiami: plastic mounts...uggh.....hope they are metal...

wjan Plastic is used to cut cost. Usually when a manufacturer decide to use plastics instead of metal, he will not use the best plastic out there as it could be more expensive than the metal mount. Sun and temperature will damage plastic no mater wat. Good plastic will be damaged in years, but I do remember the plastics of my car brand new and now after 10 years of constant SUN and heat exposure.

moinmiami: plastic mounts...uggh.....hope they are metal...

Well don't know exactly, the lens bag was left in the car during the summer time and it was so hot that it was difficult to handle car's steering wheel. Anyway when I tried to mount it during the mount pressure mount bent. I have never had such issues with my metal mount lenses. Further more plastic is aging and it becomes much more fragile, for me it is not a good material for lens mount as there you can have a lot of pressure. It is a bit shame that Nikon can produced metal mount lenses like 35 1.4 DX 50 1.8 G FX, which are extremely cheaper and now they are offering much more expensive plastic mount lenses. Sony and Canon are offering better built lenses and they are 1.8!

Plastics mounts awful. If you shoot in very hot conditions this mount can bent. Unfortunately I have seen such cases.

Michael Piziak: People are mentioning or saying get the Nikon d500 camera.
I'm sure that's a fine camera, but why should people buy into the F mount system, when Nikon is clearly giving all indications that the Z mount is their future?
Pentax is carrying on with the same K mount, that they've had since 1975.

Michael Piziak I was Pentax user I got K5, tamron 17-50 2.8, pentax 50-200, one 50 mm vintage lens. I was so disappointed y the autofocus, I sent body and lens few times for repair and every time I was getting response that camera/lens are working within tolerances. I sold everything with huge loss (around 1500$) and was able to buy only nikon D5100, not the best autofocus out there, but so much better compared to Pentax K5. I really want Pentax to make an excellent camera, but I just don't think K3 iii is the best they could have developed.

Michael Piziak you do understand that F mount lenses out there from all manufacturers are 3X 4X times more as a number? Nikon is planning to release few new F mount lenses and Sigma, Tamron and Tokina did not abounding F mount yet. Pentax still lack a lot of focal lengths you can find today for F mount. Sigma said in 2019 that will no longer produce lenses for K mount.
Having said the above Pentax lens eco system is far from good compared to the rest of the players and thus 2000$ are not justified, at least for me.

Nevermess: Well as I see it D500 can be bought brand new from B&H for 1496$. K3 iii is 1996$ this is 500$ difference... for 500$ price difference I would still buy D500 instead.

Well I do acknowledge some advantages of K3 iii over D500, but comparing the price difference it is not good enough. Also I have had Pentax K5 an excellent body and terrible focus. With Pentax lenses focus was mediocre at best, but with 3rd party (I have used tamron 17-50 2.8) it was nightmare. D500 is a professional grade body and have much more advantages that are even mentioned:

1) D500 - XQD(cfexpress)/UHD II card slot - K3 UHD I/UHD II card slot
2) D500 - better autofocus
3) D500 Much better buffer
4) D500 has tilting and better screen (bigger resolution);
5) D500 Better flash synchronization;
6) D500 PC port and 10 pin connector for accessories;
7) D500 has better battery;

Sure Pentax has few advantages as well, forme the IBIS i the only one to matter, but for 500$ more and if you take a look at the list of disadvantages you should be heavily invested in Pentax lenses to consider K3 iii.

Because the number of F mount lenses are much bigger than Z lenses and FTZ adapter is not working well for many F mount lenses and do not work at all with some F mount lenses (especially 3rd party lenses). Also there is no Z body with PC port etc. and you still have many accessories that cannot be used on Z bodies and you have no alternatives. Nikon Z system is not yet mature enough to justify the switching especially for me.

Sure but will change in the next 1-2 years? This camera is too late and too expensive.

apsc4ever: 1700 Thousand DSLRs Canon has won any battle! Writing this 5 years after the death of dslr's..

brownie314 I would say that now is the moment to buy cheap very capable DSLR as well as good lenses. Camera and Lens you could not afford few years back. I would prefer to buy the latest and grates DSLR rather than mid level mirrorless camera.

isinadinos: Finally in 2021 Fuji adds ibis in 1k $/€ body! But for the same price you get Olympus EM1.2 or EM5.3 for WR and better CAF! Or the cheaper nikon z50 with similar specs! And no retro style with dials... why get Fuji xs10 then?

Are you kidding? Olympus is not APS-C. Z50 has no IBIS, 6 MB lower resolution Video settings of X-S10 are much better than Z50. Not to mention that you have huge number of small excellent primes. Nikon will never release so many native Z DX lenses. I am a Nikon DSLR shooter and I am not even considering Nikon Z series but Fuji X-S10.

Plopp: Been eyeing the Z50 forever, but it really needs some small primes. Finally just got an X-S10 instead.

It is not only lac of APS-C lenses. Except for the autofocus Fuji X-S 10 is much better camera compared to Z50. And I am Nikon shooter....

Yea I think that if they have had a bit more budget X-S10 would be the perfect choice for Stills and Video in its price tag.

In reply to:

Nevermess: From this review I didn't get whether R5's autofocus is better that this one in Sony cameras. From some videos for me seems that R5 now has the edge for Autofocus especially with the animal eye detection.

Paul_Takes_Photos This was one of the videos I was referring to. In the Jared's video I can clearly see that Canon have the edge in focusing, but from the review here this is somehow neglected. Sure it could be my old eyes that are misleading me.

RobPul: It's sad to see how keyboard photographers treat the camera market like if it was a football match, cheering on for their preferred brand and bashing other brands.

I guess it's the result of too much time available during these lockdown times...

Nikon Z6/Z7 have received very positive rating from competent reviewers and loads of actual users. It'll be the same for the Z6ii/Z7ii.

Canon and Nikon just started from different segments of the market in their transition from DSLR to mirrorless, both of them will have a complete line up within another couple of years.

And they'll keep selling a lot of cameras and lenses to actual photographers, definitely not to the keyboard ones.

It is a good time for the not so wealthy shooters to get cheap used top line DSLRs they have always dream about.

RobPul: I think many don't appreciate the following:

Canon and Nikon are still 1st and 2nd in terms of overall ICL sales and user base but most of those users are DSLR and APSC; with a shrinking and changing market Canon's and Nikon's #1 priority is convincing their DSLR users to switch to their mirrorless system and possibly FF.

Canon's RP/R are too weak an offering for that, R6/R5 are high end and due to their price they'll result in a small % of DSLR users switching to the R system. Same for R lenses.

Nikon got priorities right. The Z5/Z6/Z7/Z6ii/Z7ii are a good offering at a good range of prices to convince the bulk of their DSLR users to switch to the Z system, with the lenses to go with that. And some of them will then upgrade again when Z8/Z9 will arrive.

Sronk Why I should compare Nikon S lenses to the Sony G lenses? As I mentioned not all of us can afford S lenses or G lenses. This is the reason Sony beating Nikon at the moment. They are offering cheap lenses as well (sigma is offering cheap and good lenses for Sony). I will repeat myself - "The people that can afford for example 2000$ for APSC DSLR and 3 lenses will be always much more than people that would pay 5000-6000$ + for body and one ore two lens. "
Having said the above if Nikon want to survive they should address those of their buyers that at the moment have Nikon APSC DSLRs with few cheap, but still good enough Z lenses and build good DX Z ecosystem (Nikon is selling much more APSC DSLRs than all Z cameras and FF DSLRs numbers combined ).

RobPul As you said the majority of Nikon buyers are DSLR APSC this is plain fact. Obviously those people did not like to shoot with phone and/or cannot afford buying FF system. Also even today there are affordable Nikon FF like D610/D750 brand new, but still majority of Nikon buyers are choosing APSC. How Z FF eco system will address that? Z lenses are ridiculously expensive(this is not going to change any tine soon). If I want to go FF I will not go for Z FF as the camera and lenses are way over пpriced. The people that can afford for example 2000$ for APSC DSLR and 3 lenses will be always much more than people that would pay 5000-6000$ + for body and one ore two lens. Having said that Nikon is not giving those people and option and therefore will lose all those customers.

Event though I like your comment you contradict to yourself. You are saying:

Canon and Nikon are still 1st and 2nd in terms of overall ICL sales and user base but most of those users are DSLR and APSC;

And after that you are saying:

Nikon got priorities right. The Z5/Z6/Z7/Z6ii/Z7ii are a good offering at a good range of prices to convince the bulk of their DSLR users to switch to the Z system, with the lenses to go with that.

Most users will NEVER switch to FF Z camera. If they wanted FF they would have switched long time ago to FF DSLR. You can now buy D750 brand new for 1200$ and D600 brand new for 650$!
So for me Nikon is making HUGE mistake neglecting their APSC users, which as you noticed are their main buyers. They should have lunched Z50 II and lower the price of Z50 to 800$. Few more APSC Z lenses like 35 1.8, 85 3.5 macro, 10-20 will increase their sales dramatically.

Nevermess: Something is wrong with the price. In Europe Z5 is available for pre-order for 1750 euro! Canon EOS RP + adapter is just 900 euro! With this huge price difference I will take Canon....

I can see that at the moment after discount Z6 is actually cheaper with 100 euro than Z5 :D. Z5 will definitely not become a best seller at this price...
