About me:

Sold the Canon 7D and Mamiya 645.
Picked up a Canon M and later a Panny G6. Sold the G6 and picked up the Nikon D5300. I found I missed a DSLR.

Took advantage of a sale and obtained the Sony A7R2. Will be s l o w l y building a lens collection for that one.

I still like to make large prints of landscapes and still life. To me a photograph is only a photograph when it is printed. Just my take from an old timer. ;-)

On article Nikon Z6 II vs Canon EOS R6 - which is best for you? (664 comments in total)
In reply to:

Mariano Pacifico: Canon EOS R6 is for me. Price-wise Canon is cheaper by a hundred bucks. NIce looking camera design. Added premium, it is Made-in-Japan

Sorry Mariano.... That B&H price for the Z6II INCLUDES the 24-70 F4 lens and lens adapter. The Canon price is just the camera.

How fast do they focus? Do they take filters?

nameless0ne: So, how much is it? 700? For 750 I got new Canon EOS RP

Where is the new RP for $750?

Don Karner: I think it's safe to just throw out this year's economic results, as far as making predictions goes. Hope that next year can be more "normal".

Maybe with a lot of help from a vaccine.....

J_o_e_l: From a frequent Nikon buyer's standpoint, the challenge I see is that it's not cheap enough. You can get a new gray market Z6 with FTZ for $1699 (the same price as this Z5)...and use all of your current FX lenses from Nikon on that camera. The Z6 has AMAZING high ISO and picture quality too. Maybe, in time, gray market Z5s will end up being $1299 and then it'll make [a little] more sense. They should have put a flash on this one like the Z50, that would have been a differentiator worth choosing this one over the Z6.

Well maybe I'd rather buy a couple of $20 memory cards instead of one $199 card and reader etc. Same EVF and 24 MP. I guess they both have an AA filter for less resolution.

redhed17: The article says "the 3.6M-dot Quad-VGA EVF ensures users can see exposure" yet the specs sheet says the viewfinder resolution is 2,369,000. Which is it? :-/

Nikon USA says it is 3.69 m dots. I figure they are right.

Don Karner: Why? Isn't F1.2 darn well thin enough?

Yakovlev... Thanks for your comment. I do mostly close up portraits (and products) and really had not thought about the value for full length. I appreciate your explanation.

Max you made a nice, reasonable explanation which I found informative. So why did you need to take that little dig at me? I guess I'll climb back in my little box now.

Don Karner: Why all the many landscape shots at f4.5 and 4.0 and 5.6? Has nobody heard of f8 and f11 for landscape? I'd love to see a few of those.

I really think that might be a bridge or three too far! ;-)

Thanks for the info. But I just can't see shooting landscapes at F4......... . ;-(

From what I have read, diffraction is tied to the physical size of the sensor, not number of megapixels. F8 should easily miss diffraction on a FF sensor, but not on a physically smaller sensor such as m4/3.

How about glass plates vs. digital? We could settle that once and for all too.

Relaxed: Nearly a grand for a f/6.3 lens? Their older version is in the low 600s. I like sigma but this sounds unrealistic in the current economy.

Heck I shoot most telephoto at f8 or f11 anyway so.......... f6.3 won't bother me at all. We all have different wants and needs.

Steve Bingham: The X-H2 is coming . . . with a larger sensor. Will it have all of the video improvements mentioned? In my opinion, no.

You mean a full frame sensor rather than APSC? Have we heard any news on that?

C plus plus: Better late than never.

Its a great all purpose camera.

Everything looks a little soft. No really sharp images here. Maybe a little post processing is necessary.

In reply to:

mxx: Out of all the lens behemoths released recently, this is probably the one I'd put my money down for, because it's so perfect and 50 mm is such a useful focal length on FF.

I thought it was 85 mm.....
