  • Replied in Z8 vs. Z9
    I replaced a 3 year old 15” MacBook Pro with a base model M1 MacBook Air with 16GB RAM and the $1200 MacBook Air is noticeably quicker in editing photos and with videos the M1 is insanely faster. ...
  • Replied in Z8 vs. Z9
    This isn’t to question you or your source, but my hope is for a stacked sensor in a smaller camera. having been shooting the Z7, Z7ii, and Z9 for a while now, I really enjoy the blackout free EVF ...
  • I don’t shoot a lot of UWA, but I had the the Fuji 10-24 and have the Nikon 14-30 you mention. I was satisfied with the Fuji but find the Z14-30mm to be better. If you shoot a lot of UWA, it might ...
  • Not really. There is actually very little benefit to the gen ii over the original since the recent updates. When I bought the Z7ii, my Z7 became my dedicated landscape camera. The few features of ...
  • This is difficult to answer as there are a lot of variables here. Having used fujifilm for quite a while as well as Nikon Z, I found things I liked with both and things I didn’t. The Fuji is a ...
  • I have had my Z7ii work on black bear when the light is good, but it is rarely the case and I don’t use it outside the scope it is stated by Nikon to work. On the other hand, my Z9 works very well ...
  • The 24-120S is the best I’ve used in its class. I’m sure the 24-70mm F/2.8S is better but it’s larger, heavier, and significantly more costly with less range. I don’t think you would be ...
  • That’s the start of building two systems! :-D i really liked the X100T I had, but I didn’t use it as much when I wasn’t traveling to cities for work anymore so sold it.
  • That is true, but a lot of users are to the point where they want to upgrade. Their D850 might still be the best DSLR made, but it’s old now and cameras moved on. There are a lot of advancements ...
  • No, the sensor in the Z9 has the same resolution but is a completely different sensor with the fastest readout time of any current sensor “according to the marketing”. The Z7/Z7ii share the same ...
  • As someone who has switched brands a few times, for various reasons, there are more important things to consider than just the flashy new camera body. The most important thing is to look at the ...
  • It likely isn’t the sensor as many of the new cameras from Sony also have slow sensors. The expeed 6 likely doesn’t have the hardware needed to run eye AF algorithms much better than it currently ...
  • I had the 70-300mm AF-P and switched to the 100-400s and am happy I did. There were a few reasons for me to switch. I was never disappointed with the IQ of the 70-300, but I really wanted more ...
  • This is going to really depend on your uses cases. I have the 50mm 1.8 S, 28 mm 2.8 SE, and the 24-120mm 4 S. Out of these lenses, the. 24-120mm sees way more use than the other two mentioned ...
  • I am also brand agnostic for the most part and switched to Nikon for the Z cameras. When Canon came out with the R6/R5 I felt like I made the wrong choice and considered the cost of switching ...
  • The high frame rate of the Z9 makes it easy to take a lot of photos and there were quite a few people holding down the shutter button to test memory card limits. I have a Z9 I got at the end of ...
  • It’s difficult to say how good the value is without knowing the market or seeing the condition of the items. In the US, the included accessories would not really add any value to the camera and ...
  • You don’t need to wait until the Z8 arrives as we have no idea what that will really be, but waiting until the next generation cameras arrives is worth it. I shoot a Z7 and Z7ii alongside the Z9 ...
  • I went with the 14-30mm because I don’t need the extra stop of light and like the lightweight collapsible design. I’m more likely to pack it for a trip over the larger and heavier 14-24mm. The ...
  • Replied in Yes.
    I agree with you that it’s good to have options, but for me F/11 isn’t going to work. It might be fine for others and what they shoot, I really struggle with the F/8 aperture that my 500mm PF + ...
