  • I use a D850/Z6 combination (which I really like) but the unreliability of the EVF/Monitor automatic switch is perhaps my top operational annoyance with the Z6. Most of the time I just want to use ...
  • I often use the 85mm f/1.8G  for landscape purposes - normally in situations where I want compressed perspective. It is significantly smaller and lighter than the 85mm f/1.4G  and, for this ...
  • I'm not so sure about that. As an example, Grays of Westminster are currently selling the Z7 with the offer: "Save £275 with this special price until May 14!". Coincidentally this is the day ...
  • Nikon Rumors is reporting "Nikon Summer Promotions coming in Europe on May 15th". This is what I anticipated in my previous post (about the "special prices until May 14"). For the last few weeks ...
  • Other than the fact that he was very impressed by the new 24-70mm f/2.8S, I found the Matt Granger video uninformative and hardly worthy of being called a 'review'.
  • Good question. I have been wondering the same thing. For several weeks now, Grays of Westminster have been advertising "special prices" on the Z6/Z7 "until May 14". The big issue is whether the ...
  • My 70-200mm f/2.8 VR II had a problem that the AF occasionally made a nasty screeching noise, although it actually focused correctly. However the noise made it unusable in many environments (e.g. ...
  • Having owned both the 200-500mm and 500mm PF, I can't believe that optical quality alone would be the deciding factor between these two lenses. The choice is really between the flexibility of the ...
  • After a 12 week wait I at last received my 500mm f/5.6 PF (having traded-in my 200-500mm zoom) and I have now had a few weeks experience with it. Of course, there is no clear 'winner' between the ...
  • I eventually received mine last week (in the UK) . Ordered 29th August, delivered 22nd November, so just over 12 weeks. It does seem that they are still being produced, but very, very slowly.
  • I used to own both the 300mm f/4 PF and 200-500mm f/5.6 (bought after the 300mm to give me extra reach). Whilst I found the 200-500mm to be very good optically, especially for its price, it is ...
  • Agreed. Likewise I ordered the 500mm PF in August (29th) and my dealer (in the UK) still has no idea when to expect availability. I need the lens by the latest early January 2019, otherwise I will ...
  • Similarly, I ordered August 29th from Jessops in the UK, but they still have no idea when to expect delivery; (They mentioned the possibility of Christmas, but this might have been more in hope ...
  • I wonder whether "no" will mean "never". It is clear that, in the short term, Nikon's priority has to be fleshing out the Z-mount series.  The problem is that, in the longer term, there is likely ...
  • I still believe that there would be a place for a higher performance Nikon 50mm F-mount lens - which is, indeed, the course of action that Nikon themselves have clearly adopted with the Z-mount ...
  • Both these things are true. The annoying consequence is that Nikon only provide 'cheap' 50mm lenses. Although the 50mm f/1.8G is excellent value for its price, it is not quite at the same standard ...
  • I own and frequently use both the 16-35mm f/4 and the 20mm f/1.8 for landscape purposes, and even sometimes carry them together. To me, they serve different purposes - the 16-35mm f/4 VR wins in ...
  • This thread has gone very quiet. Still waiting on my August pre-order (paid in full), but still no idea on delivery timescale. Has there been a complete pause in deliveries, or has anyone received ...
  • This is not generally true. There have been reports of a good supply in Germany, but here in the UK there has been virtually nothing. I am waiting on a 29th August pre-order (paid in full), but ...
  • I was also required to make an up-front payment in full (by Jessops in the UK). I did so in the expectation that they were reasonably confident on delivery timescales. Now (a month later) it ...
