This is the first review that was well informed and balanced for the Mirror-less cameras on the market now. Great Job Chris and Jordan.. These two guys always to a fair review and its well done and also entertaining.

Arsen: I own the D850 and love it along with top notch Nikkor Lens. I have been waiting for this camera for a while. I didn't want to go to sony because I have the A6000 , bought it for a small travel camera several years ago, I hated the IQ , Menue and autofocus.. At that time I had the D800E and no comparison. The z6 would be the perfect camera for my needs with 24-70 F4 Kit lens on days I don't want to carry the D850. I have been looking for a light travel camera and I think Nikon hit all the right boxes for me. Personally I don't care if it only has 1 card.. I love the XQD cards, super fast and reliable.. I never use the SD card on my D850.. I am also excited with the video features of the z6.. if the Z7 wasn't so expensive, I would consider it. I will wait for some full reviews then place my order.

Valid point, the A6000 is very old and I know the new Sony is very good based on reviews. But I have invested a lot in Nikon and with the new Z camera , it will be a bonus to use my current lens and flashes. I just came back from 3 week vacation from Europe and I used my D850 95% of the time, But on certain days I took the A6000 because it was small and light. There are things about the sony I like is that it has a pop up flash when needed and I do also like the compact pancake lens.

In reply to:

(unknown member): I'm not impressed by this. I have a Nissin i40, and I don't think I'd swap it. If you're interested in a small but powerful travel flash, with wireless high-speed sync, full manual mode, etc. then check out the Nissin.

Gareth,

I see that it works with the D810, but I also have a Sony A6000, would the same flash work on that with a shoe adaptor?

I am most excited with this announcement today.. I was looking for a small travel flash.. The SB910 is a great flash, but sometimes I want a small flash, small lens on my D810..

Waist of resources that should have been allocated to NX2 and D810 Raw support and possibly to create NX3 With Nik Plug in support.

On article Benchmark Performance: Nikon D810 review (2008 comments in total)

The improvements are small but all in the right place for me. The better LCD, Better ISO, Faster Frame Rate, better Focus.. These little changes makes an awesome camera even better. I will be upgrading from the D800E to the D810..

Just one very important question, I see that they will be releasing their Stupid Nikon Capture NX-D on July 15th for free. Does this mean that there will not be Capture NX2 Support for the D810? Can anyone confirm this? If so this will be a deal breaker for me.

In reply to:

Arsen: I just picked up mine about an hour ago.. Must say for a small camera the image quality is very good. Still no comparison to my Nikon D800E , but for a light camera has lots of features that my wife wanted in a small package. Overall very satisfied with it. I bought it with the kit lens, Ok overall, but like the compact size. The reason that I bought this camera was to use it when my D800E would be too big to take along. Its hard to sacrifice great IQ. So Far I am quite impressed, but time will tell based on various shooting conditions..

The 50mm would be for FF camera.. Its my only prime I have.. All my other lens are 2.8 zoom..

I use the D800E 95% of the time, but sometimes with my 2.8 lens and external flash, little big to take along to a small function or restaurant, it gets too much attention. I refuse to use a cell phone camera to take pictures, so the A6000 is a compromise in between. I can always use a small 50mm prime and internal flash but again sometime I want something light to carry along with me.. The camera is going to be used 95% of the time by my wife, and with Wi-Fi and NFC she can easily post pictures on social media or share via email..
