  • Thank you, I think your Z6ii was a good choice, should last as long as your D7000 has already :-) Agreed, I was already sold on mirrorless, makes it a bit harder to decide with Nikon being somewhat ...
  • Thanks Peter :-D Tracking a unicorn Nikon is indeed hard work, maybe that will be the Z9. I have certainly seen enough sample raw files to last me for the next 7 years, fortunately not started ...
  • Wasn't my intention to stir up the hornets nest so to speak :-| Nailing down one camera to do the job of two causes some obvious problems, I will sleep on it since my mind is somewhat blown at the ...
  • I noticed the Z50 kit with FTZ is in stock at Cameraworld, or was at least, most others seem out. Apparently Park Cameras are expecting stock of the new version, but it sounds like sometime in ...
  • Ok, ok, please don't feel like I haven't been taking all this onboard. I decided to pass on DSLR's and only go with mirrorless so that only leaves me with Z6 and Z7. If I am using these both with ...
  • Nikon Z7 has been ordered, earlier in the thread I confirmed that I would not be purchasing another DSLR, only mirrorless. I will use DX crop no doubt on some, maybe many occasions when I can't ...
  • Thank you Peter, I do appreciate that. Absolutely, in an ideal world I would grab a 500 pf and a Z6ii or Z9 tomorrow, well, maybe the wait would be slightly longer for the Z9 but yes :-D Any option ...
  • Replied in Bad choice ...
    I know, I have managed with the D7000 below ISO3200 this long but I also crop 90% of the time and currently can’t go longer than the 300mm f4, I feel if I had 500mm Pf or better the Z6 would be ...
  • Replied in Order placed...
    Well, for better or worse I have ordered a Z7, now to track down an FTZ adapter, maybe go with the new version for what it's worth. Hope I have made the right choice for now at least :-D
  • Replied in The Z50
    Agreed and thanks, appreciate it. The Z7 does seem like the immediate solution, Z6 is very tempting for lower light but I will be seriously short changed on reach without a 500mm lens. Either ...
  • Replied in The Z50
    Most likely will end up with Z6 or Z7 but the Z50 reach with DX attracts me, I know the Z7 will give me that in a round about way.
  • Replied in The Z50
    Thanks for that, I am sadly in the UK, wish we had the light from USA :-) Currently I can pickup a new Z6 body only for £1100 here, Z7 is around £1500, tough call and I would hope either will keep ...
  • Replied in The Z50
    Thank you Frank, appreciate the reply. I totally understand the Z50 is going to be limited for moving objects so to speak, interesting point you raise regarding focusing in average or low light. ...
  • Indeed, I assume the Z50 + FTZ kits are in stock at a few suppliers due to less demand, compared to Z6 and Z7 options. I figured getting the two for £750 was a reasonable deal, body size would be ...
  • Well I am struggling to decide so tonight added a Z50 bundled with the FTZ to basket, £750 in the UK which basically means I get the currently out of stock FTZ and a Z50 for equivalent £500, I ...
  • Replied in LOL, sorry
    That is more like it :-D DeepPRIME does a great job, that feather detail almost looks like it's a different image in fact, I had to check it a few times to make sure it wasn't a test! I've just ...
  • It does seem a bit odd, I would also expect DXO to have done better on the background. I found with Topaz that it was softening some of the detail in general but also softening the outline of the ...
  • Great bird, poor shot, but was simply testing highest ISO on my D7000 at the time, possibly through glass. Just processed quickly using DeepPRIME in DXO Labs 5 and it is just about passable. ...
  • Fair enough, poorly worded maybe. My 300mm f4 might not be of high enough quality to take full advantage of the Z7 resolution :) Indeed, technique can always be improved, also hoping IBIS might ...
  • Understood, thanks for responding regardless. It seems the EVF is something many have been pleasantly surprised with, certainly looking forward to getting my hands on one soon. Software has come on ...
