Presumably the B4 adapter has optics inside to correct the lack of prism and expand the image circle. (ie will cost $2000)

LessMirrored19: Z-mount : 3 native lenses
E-mount : 94 native lenses
.. Nikon is already closing factories and shutting down and leaving market place for competitors in many countries but Z-mount is more future lol
.. I know why Freud died with unanswered questions.

Will be interesting if anyone can build an Emount->Z mount adapter...

Is it delivered in a transparent plastic bag? If so, can I just have that please?

steelhead3: Comparing the specs of this camera to the new canikon offerings is like being in different universes.

Which produces larger FoV 4K video image, the Fuji or the Canon?

AshMills: I really hope that Panasonic (with Olympus) are rubbing their hands and hastily adding twin slots, IBIS, full Frame 4K and internal 10bit log capture to their FF mirrorless.. Can see now why Nikon rushed their cameras out..

thomas, sorry, how long did it take "S" to become one of the "big 3" - Things change, and Panasonic are a big company.

toughluck: I'm shocked they're not bundling the adapter with Z7 and Z6 for free and that there's no version with a motor for AF with older lenses (AF and AF-D). That latter one could be an optional accessory, but this basic adapter should have been thrown in for free.

I recall getting a free OM-4/3 adapter with my Olympus E1 many many years ago. It felt like a nice touch, and I bought a couple of OM lenses to use it with.

AshMills: I work with two professional camera bodies day-in day-out, doing 10,000+ shots a year for clients. Please can someone tell me why I need to be using 2 card slots? (I don't currently)

Many thanks.

I do not have two photographers when I work, but I do have two cameras on me (plus a spare) - hopefully my career will continue to provide appropriate amounts of salt.

Marksphoto: is it just me or the photos aren't as sharp... what conclusion should I be drawing from the sample photos?

sorry Panasonic lovers, I got fuji prime lenses, so used to seeing crispness in my photographs.

Interesting theory Cameron, which lenses do you think align?

Paul Grupp: And yet the Gh5 and Gh5s have no limit on video recording time.

Are you blaming heat build up?

AbrasiveReducer: If I'm right and a lot of older Nikon lenses won't cut it at 45 megapixels, this is the more interesting of the two cameras. It also follows that the same person who wants to save money on the less expensive body is most likely to rely on adapted lenses.

Never mind the glass, most people's technique is rarely good enough for 45MP - I know I have to work hard.

ogl: XQD cards only...Is it a conspiracy between Sony and Nikon? The cheapest 32 MB Sony (only) card is 90 USD or 100 EURO. Sony XQD card reader is 70 USD.

Definitely will need larger card than 32MB.

Looks pretty good, putting him in a top-lit, white shirt against white background was a brave move- those highlights are long gone..

hahah1: Question: Any reasons why larger lens mount would be beneficial?

Well, EF to Nikon adapters would be available for instance...

Correct, primes tend to be sharper than zooms.

In reply to:

AshMills: Just wondering if anyone had considered whether the Zmount is big enough to adapt Sony E lenses, (or Canon EF even) ? Would be a nice undercut if people who had moved to Sony because they needed mirrorless could keep all their (lets face it, quite juicy) Zeiss etc mirrorless spec lenses and just change back to Nikon bodies, before investing in the new Z mount ones...

Interesting thought anyway..
