This may be the most Japanese thing ever...

fPrime: Canon addressed all if its mirrorless problems in its 2nd generation. Nikon only addressed some of them with the ZII’s leaving AF in third place and failing to produce an FTZ-D adapter fir its DSLR user base. These are the results.

:yawn:

fPrime: If you wanted to build a mirrorless ecosystem that was average at everything and class-leading at nothing (except perhaps having the lowest price), then this would be the perfect lens for that system. Equally cheap, equally slow, and equally unremarkable.

Interesting that you immediately had to walk that positive comment back; with the r5, Canon finally released a usable, decent mirrorless camera, two years into the game.

Yup, here's fPrime, aka Negative Nancy, complaining about a Nikon announcement or product...again. Maybe DPReview could save everyone the time and effort and just print a disclaimer at the bottom of every Nikon article: "fPrime does not approve of this product, and has several snarky but unimaginative things to say about it."

Sc1920: Whew, thanks NIkon for the underwhelming upgrade. I see no reason to upgrade my Z7. Now if you had delivered a significant uptick in AF performance, I’d have been all in, as it its, they saved me a pile of money, that I can put to better uses, like new glass.

Honestly, my Z 7 kicks ass; I wasn't really looking to upgrade. I'm assuming that it will do the trick for some time to come.

ProfHankD: There is no such thing as "the lens cap you probably keep on your camera to keep the mirror and sensor protected" because (1) that would be called a body cap and (2) there isn't a mirror to keep clean behind the mount of a mirrorless camera. Still, we get what you meant.... ;-)

Not to mention: "the lens cap you probably keep on your camera..." I don't know anyone who regularly keeps the body cap on their camera. They keep a lens one their camera, so they're ready to shoot something.

The marketing wants to spin it like this is some amazing convenience, that instead of having to remove the body cap, mount a lens, and turn your camera on, hey, you're always ready to go! Just silly. For people who hate money, a good way to get rid of $150 on a gimmick you'll probably use once or twice. For the rest of us...pass.

Funny Valentine: 2 years life cycle ? So this what the camera industry has come to ?
Step 1: Release unfinished products and use buyers as beta testers.
Step 2: Release two years later the mark II, III, IV, V, VI whatever with minor improvements that should have been included in the previous model
Step 3: rinse and repeat
Step 4: profit ? which isn't very easy for camera makers these days.

Half-baked? My z 7 kicks ass. Not sure what you're talking about...

Patrick Murray: I will keep using my D810 and older AIS lenses thank you.

Why do people feel the need to post crap like this? We get it - you're not interested in this specific camera. But we don't care.

Love that these were taken in Knoxville; the house I lived in in grad school is visible in the Henley Street Bridge picture.

Nice pictures, and looks like a fantastic lens. Hope Pentaxians enjoy this new glass...

But will it catch fire and burn in your hands while you're shooting video? That's the feature all the kids want these days...

In reply to:

Camera Conspiracies: Cheaper than the Z6, but worse in almost every way, and just as heavy. 2 card slots because pros will be buying this camera. Mic and headphone jack but removed most video features. Sounds like a winner.

"He's a bit of a willful troll."

You misspelled "witless"...

2 card slots because of the never-ending whining of internet trolls like yourself about the z 6 and z 7 having a single card slot. "Cheaper...worse in almost every way": Yeah, that's ind of how that works. The d5600 is "worse in almost every way" than the z7500, which costs more.

fPrime: Boring zoom range, pedestrian max aperture, and dull design... if that’s what $400 buys one in the world of Nikon Z, I’ll pass.

Are you switching to Canon? Oh, please let it be true~!

"Boring, pedestrian, and dull..." Describes fPrime's ubiquitous whining on each and every Nikon announcement.

Seriously, fPrime: You don't have to post any more. We all know exactly what you're going to say. And maybe change your username to DebbieDowner...

Keep on riding 'em all the way down. When they've finished crashin' and burnin', maybe you can switch over to Pentax...

In reply to:

Swerky: 24-50...a tad short to be practical. For that price and that aperture they could have made it a 24-70. Not a problem if it ended up a bit longer, it doesn’t form a pocketable kit with the Z5 anyway.

It forms a very jacket-pocketable (or small pursable) kit.

KrisAK: Where are the 28 and 40 compact primes? They'd be the perfect complement to the Z5.

Of course, you could just buy a used 45mm P and use that...

In reply to:

paulski66: I have the 16-50 dx, which I use on my z 7 in dx mode. It's tiny and brilliant for what it is. This lens is perfect for the 24mp FF cameras; I think Nikon will sell a lot of these.

The z 7 automatically switches to DX mode when mounting this lens. but for the z 7 that still leaves 20+ MP @ 24-75 equivalent...not a bad trade-off. I have the 24-70 f/2.8 S for when absolute IQ is required; the 16-50 gives me a high-quality camera I can literally stick in a jacket pocket when I'm walking around.

As a bonus, I paid about $250 used for the 16-50. A no-brainer...
