Almost unbelievable, if it works. Tests will be interesting for sure.

PerL: That video feature with shallow DOF seems almost to advanced to be true.

I have seen some of the competitions tries at software DOF in video and it looked terrible. But I think Apple is good at not launching technology until it is mature, so I am looking forward to real tests.

PerL: Does the professional sport photographers trust the e-shutter, or do they still prefer mechanical?

I didn't mean reliability, I meant if the professionals have any concerns about distortion.

Would do double duty for me. Replace 35 for my Z5, on my Z50 a 60 mm eqv is great for half figure people shots. Think about the 58 mm Nikon F lens.

henrikbengtsson: Allright, let's get aaaall the upcoming comments out of the way first.

1) Those images are not sharp
2) Do you call this a preview gallery? My fish can take better pictures
3) Ugly colors. Canon has lost it
4) Only 24 Mpix...who is this camera for?

There!

I think these looks a little odd.
24. Foot
27. Foot/ball
32. Ball
33. Leg/ball
34. Short legs???
49. Leg
58. Ball
62. Ball

If you want, you can compare possible distortions to this soccer gallery I shot years ago, also at 1/1600s, with a 400 2.8 with a Nikon D3s.

Can you specify? I thought about the legs looking somewhat odd on some soccer shots, is that what you meant?

PaulSnowcat: They removed that extremely nice hand grip! WHY!? How this pretty toy can be uses with a Tamron 100-400 or Sigma 50-100? Thanks, but I'll pass. I am staying with Fuji X-S10, Fringer FTX1 and Nikon F lenses.

They didnt remove anything. This is meant to be a retro tribute to the Nikon FM/2 which didn't have a grip. If you want the grip there is still a Z50.

marc petzold: Not to crush the party, but i said this all months ago....and being wondering for instance, why the Zfc Aluminium dials are something "special" when Fujifilm does have this since the start - afaik also some cheapskate A-Series body.

My E1, T1 does have the same. Nothing special. The sad thing about the Z-Mount DX is, that Nikon does have *very* limited Lenses hereby, furthermore, with retro style.

Basically, it's either way the DX 16-50 silver or the 28/2.8 SE, nothing more. TTArtisan comes to the rescue here.

Anyway, when Users look at this: https://www.dpreview.com/files/p/articles/3027876356/Nikon_Zfc_3qtr.jpeg It's pretty clear, for DX, the Lens dimensions of Z-Mount (Lens Barrel diameter) it's really too huge, the dimensions do suck something.

Just try a real Nikon FM(2)/FE(2) Series SLR - it's plenty of fun. :)

Based on my DX (since D100) experience, i'd say Nikon would always keep DX lenses a low priority foodchain option - compared to their FX Fullframe Lenses.

There are also three new Viltrox F 1.4 AF DX-lenses – 23, 33 and 56 in Z-mount (FOV eqv 35, 50 and 85).

Would have bought this beauty right away if I didn't already bought the Z50 a few months ago, and also that I have a slight suspicion that Nikon might repeat this trick with a full frame version based on the Z5 next year... BTW I have seen some very nice third party leather half cases designed for the Zfc with built in contured grip.

How fast is the mechanical shutter?

PerL: I had the 50 1.2 TT Artisan forNikon Z. These lenses has a great feeling of build quality for the money. However, I found it very hard to nail exact focus. A 0.95 must be even harder. I also have a Chinese made 25 1.8 which is much easier to focus. I returned the 50 1.2 and decided that AF is a must in these fast, slightly longer (75 mm eqv for APS-C) lenses. For me, that is.

I think about one stop margin is what you want. I thought the 1.2 lens on my APS-C Nikon Z50 would besimilar a modern version my old 85 2.0 on my SLR (Nikon FE). But when I directly compared it, I found that I focused faster and with more confidence with the SLR, unless you work very slow with focus peaking and magnification. The process isn't as smooth and the viewfinder experience is not the same. The peaking is not that accurate if your subject has contrasty edges, but you want the focus to be in the middle, it is also disturbing with the peaking colors when you are composing - IMO. Magnification gets very jumpy unless you have a short focal length. I think the ideal focal range for manual focusing lenses on mirrorless cameras is from very wide up to about 35 mm on APS-C. There are for instance some 12 2.0 lenses I find interesting.

In reply to:

nordstern63: Am I the only one who thinks that the biggest downside of the Nikon Z fc is the too large diameter of the Z mount compared to the body? Yes, call me superficial and only interested in the looks rather than the wonderful inner values... but isn't it mostly about the looks when it comes to cameras of this kind? Lets be honest... they are all good enough... since a while.

The 28 2.8 doesn't look that big.
