In reply to:

jae k: How Nikon came from behind like that and built the best camera for still and video even ignoring price.

Then they go ahead and price it $1000 cheaper than the Sony A1. Incredible work Nikon, I hope Sony and Canon feel the heat.

They have done that before with F5 and D3 also.

3Percent: Nice focal length, maximum aperture, and price. That said, it's too big and too plasticky for my taste. Would have preferred a metal mount, weather seals, and size of Canon's 40mm f/2.8 personally. Lens design matters to me.

@3percent...yes, same as yours

blse59: Since this has a plastic mount and no rubber gasket the price should be $200 or less. At $300 it's pure highway robbery and way overpriced. Remember nifty fifties with metal mounts, rubber gaskets, bigger apertures (f1.8) easily came in at under $200. This looks like a lot of greed and profit taking from Nikon.

@blse59.. Charity begins at home.

"Designed with consideration for dust and drip-resistant performance with a sealing that prevents dust and water droplets from entering the lens."

Here is the first plastic mount complaint and lots more coming.

In reply to:

Brev00: Every lens announcement is followed by comments from folks who have other design ideas. Faster, more metal in the construction, prettier, a different focal length. Yada, yada, yada. Obviously, no company can please all of the expert engineers on this website. When I go to Home Depot, I tend to choose from the available lawn mowers and don't offer my great engineering advice to the sales people. If I had a Z camera, I would just see if it has the best features for my needs. If I need metal construction, I will look at other options. Is there an audience for this particular lens? The price and size are certainly going to be positives for many.

@brev00...but I am sure in a home improvement forum people do provide their engineering advice on lawn mowers. 😁

All of them are good. But loved the picture of raccoons.

2 different awards went to the same picture. Check out the title.

@cosma....cars like Bronco, telluride etc sell for $15000 over MSRP nowadays. it's the same shady sellers on Amazon like shady car dealers.

That's great. With the supply chain issues lately someone would get the lens earlier and could use it to make pictures.

In reply to:

AlejandroI: Well Panasonic went from having the must hated lens line to the must desirable, this at least to me.... no other mount has these fast, small and reasonably priced primes, and if they come out with the 18mm as they are saying, perfect! No lens is missing, unless you shoot wildlife or sports, (long zooms), for which the l mount cameras are not made for.

I have the 24mm and it's a great lens, no complains, pretty sure the 35mm is going to be at least the same.

Alejandrol has some of the best logic I have read in my life.
Sony is not considered because they are long time in the business. Nikon is not considered because I don't use nikon.
Bravo, sir.

vigna: Most of these new technologies presented as breathtaking is already available in the Olympus MFT and Panasonic cameras with less carrying weight and price. I interested to know how you measure film like appearance for the first time in DSLR history, very misleading.

Ok

james _: Funnily enough, the Z9 is starting to remind me of the NX1. Here's DPR's comments from the 2014 review:

"The first time I looked through the NX1's viewfinder I realized this was a different type of mirrorless camera. Samsung's 2.36M dot OLED EVF is big and beautiful with crisp, bright colors. Samsung has done a great job of designing the viewfinder's display; aperture and shutter information are highlighted in blue as you change them, and the exposure needle is a bold red against a white scale.

Although the EVF has a lag time of 5ms, in practice it's effectively zero; you see things in real time just as you would through an optical viewfinder. Overall, the EVF experience is right up there with the highly rated Fujifilm X-T1, though I prefer the EVF on the NX1 thanks to its great visual design. It's quite possibly the nicest EVF I've used on a stills camera."

Obviously they are not the same tier camera, but the big splash they are making feels similar.

As a photographer on budget, I miss having Samsung around. IIRC, their cameras and lenses had good value for money.

Kartikmani2000: Love the colors on the video. Much nicer than the green cast of the z9. Was this the R5 or the S1H?

Shown on around 3 second mark of the video.

Linerider: Yawn!
I thought that Nikons new huge mount and shorter flange was supposed to reduce the lens size, increase the quality and create more innovating lens options?
Yet this lens is the same size as the older F mount.
And again we see no imagination from Nikon, still producing the same old focal range while Panasonic breaks new ground with the S 20-60mm F3.5-5.6
I'm personally glad to be done with Nikon

I am scared 😥

I am pretty sure if someone is done with a company and happy with another company, then he/she doesn't come to troll on a product announcement page.

cosmaracoare: Wow. This camera is bigger and heavier than the Fuji 100 II GFX.

Reminds me of the Olympus OMD EM 1 cameras. Same size as a semiprofessional full frame camera from Canon and Nikon but with a 4/3 sensor.

@cosmara.... 47mp Nikon Z7 weighs 700g (200g less than GFX50) and is smaller. On the NIKON site they say it has dust and moisture resistance and is engineered to operate in low temperature environments. Definitely not as rugged as Z9 but can take a beating or two from most common sense photographers taking pictures in 99% of the situations.

mahshid: The production of Z9 was a big mistake, a product whose parts are 5 years old and buying it can be a deadly mistake.

@Kona Mike.... I am, also have a kid. 🤣 But my last camera purchase was in 2011, so I am alive and well.

I have never heard anyone dying because of a camera purchase.
