  • You are only getting the body, not the kit with included lens? I'd consider getting the kit, with the 24-70 f4S... and I would consider getting the Z 6II as opposed to the Z 6. Then, if budget ...
  • Evidently, I am a "lucky" one that got one of the first batches of 105s to be released. I got it in June. I've used primarily for macro but in the course of utilizing  it for that, it has also ...
  • Slow is a relative term. The 85 is slightly faster, but the 105 has been fast enough to catch a “parade” of ducks. In macro, it does hunt, but is faster to lock on focus than my ancient Sigma 105 ...
  • A lot of people will care. Competitors will be really interested to see if Nikon can deliver on their promises. If it does, competitors customers will be in play.
  • Just a reminder... Canon's RF 400 f2.8 and 600 f4 aren't really Rf designed lenses. They are DSLR EF lenses with a EF to R adapter welded to the lens. You can do the same thing with Nikkor F mount ...
  • For me, one who has no intention of getting the Z 9, I am extremely interested in what the Z 9 can bring to the table. If it improves on the AF mode of the month, and still does the amazing D6, ...
  • I own both. What's happening is that I'm leaving the 85 in the bag, preferring to use the 105  because of its dual purpose capability. The one problem with the 85 is that it's closest focusing ...
  • Yes, the Canon R3 has a different skin which makes it interesting, and yes; Canon cameras tend to be more curvy than Nikon, which is a way to go...I guess. The ability of Nikon's screen to tilt in ...
  • Replied in not at all...
    At its introduction, or within a few days of its first issue, there was Nikon notice reporting of an issue with white pixels that was noticeable in night shots. Nikon reacted very quickly, after ...
  • Replied in not at all...
    There was only two cameras, that I can recall that had major usability issues. Both were resolved. The D600 had a dust issue, and the D750 had a shutter curtain issue. Every other camera released ...
  • Wasn't a great fan of it back when it was introduced in the EOS 3, I remember a demonstrator at PhotoPlus in NYC talking about the feature, and some of the attendees really interested, then really ...
  • I got mine in June (3rd), within a month of when I ordered it. Of course I ordered it within the first hour after Nikon announced it. It has become one of my most used lenses.
  • Ok. But I'm simply using your proof which comes from Nikon UK. If it goes beyond them, it doesn't change my theory that this classification is nothing more than an up sell.
  • You're right. Nikon UK separates F mount cameras from Z mount cameras. If I was to click on F mounts and ask to see Nikon's pro DSLRs only; I could choose how many MPs I want for my pro camera, My ...
  • The probable answer is that Nikon UK is attempting to improve their bottom line by classifying only the higher mpixel cameras, which are more expensive, than the ones with les pixels. The D6, ...
  • That's weird. NPS (US) recognizes all of the  Z mount cameras and lenses as qualified to get membership in NPS (for those who don't know NPS is Nikon Professional Services). You just need two ...
  • Yes, if we look at it from frequency of using a particular focal length, I do tend to use the 24-70, or the MC105 more often than the rest; during the summer months. Neither one of them, however, ...
  • Yesterday it was the 14-30 f4S. The day before it was the 24-70 f2.8S, and the day before that the MC 105. Last week it was the 85. Point is; none of Z mount lenses I own has disappointed me. ...
  • When I went mirrorless in 2018, I was actually just putting my toes in the water to see if it was ok, so I chose to go cheapest way which was  a Z 6, 24-70 f4 kit with FTZ. When I upgraded this ...
  • Not currently convinced that a $6000-7000 will add anything to my photography. However if Nikon Rumors is wrong about Z6II, Z7II firmware upgrades, in AF, I may kick the Nikon habit entirely. I ...
