I wish they make another one that has 40mp sensor +IBIS but not the 8K video to drop down the price.
I am assuming this one will be upwards of $5K

Tom Huot: I may be naive, but what exactly is the attraction of a fixed lens camera at this price? I must be missing something here. Until someone explains whatever advantages this camera might have, I have no idea why anyone would buy it.

Exactlty... at this price point, there are so many options so wondering what is that special in this one that would make u buy!

Jhaakas: Seriously, $1399 for a fixed lens P&S? I get the convenience part but what makes this become more expensive than an milc? !!

@3pgry, thanks for describing your gear, glad to know you are happy with it.

sonics: The EOS M100 is indeed fun; Sold new with the excellent 22mm f/2.0 for 450 euro. Even smaller than the "more engaging" fujifilm for I guess 1400 euro's.

If it is expensive, it will be better... is it :) !!

Honestly, if size and fixed lens is of interest, cell phones have f1.7 lenses along with quick hdr capabilities that are not commonly found in cameras.

Jhaakas: What would be the reason to go for aD780 DSLR when we have a Z6 mirrorless available and at around the same price?
I mean so far a lot has been said and discussed how milcs are better (and the future!)
I have handled a d750 and with a 24-120 is huge and bulky. The Z6 with a 24-70 is much compact and manageable (agreed the lens is not a 120 but still much smaller)

I thought the MILC will have accurate and quicker AF as the sensor for both AF and image is same.. What is the reason to believe DSLR has faster AF?

Thanks all for the comments.
Regarding AF, I thought MILC has the same screen for AF+image hence it is accurate and eliminates the need for AF fine adjustment, yet is a DSLR considered to give quicker AF?

To use the existing lens base. I agree one can use the FTZ adapter...

Niko Todd: D780 R&D should've been entirely aimed at the next "Z" camera - or at least at fixing the 6/7 problems with FWUs if possible.
While the D6 is somewhat logical due to the Olympics, the D780 makes no sense whatsoever.
Nobody wants a SLR iteration at a questionably higher price; people expect a "Z" camera at the level or close to the success of the original.
They showed the new "Z" lens road map at the show and right next to it - a DSLR... ROFL! The signals, Nikon is sending, are confusing, to say the least.

Absolutely, this 780 is really an unwanted thing that borrows a lot from Z6... and still used old dslr tech

B Bob: I really like carrying a crop sensor and full frame sensor body that can natively share lenses. I did this with a Nikon D5500 and D750 which had the F mount in common. To me it is a great disadvantage for Canon's mirrorless crop and FF not to share lens mounts. Nikon and Sony both share lens mounts with their crop and FF cameras. I prefer the Nikon over the Sony crop sensor camera as I am left eye dominant and don't /have a hard time using left side viewfinders.

I have a viewfinder that fits in the flash shoe for my 1953 Voitlander Prominent. I don't like it, it is inconvenient, and almost never use it. Why would I want an attachable viewfinder on a 2019 camera. When I saw the introduction of the Canon a couple of months ago I just rolled my eyes.

I would have preferred a few more pixels with the Z 50 I bought, but so far the results from this sensor is excellent. I suspect the sensor is similar to the one in the D500 which is a highly regarded camera.

If u carry a FF like Z6, you can use it in crop mode or simply crop images in an editor. Wondering why you would want to carry a second apsc camera (apart from backup/high availability)
So if you get the canon eosr, you can have it all.

zubikov: People will buy this camera for the same reasons people buy an Aston Martin Vanquish for $300K vs a $100K BMW M6. "There's just something about it that stands out, but I can't describe what it is".

Well those cars are head turners and look good, stand out in the competition.
Nothing so here..looks much like a sony a7iii

some might even ask "Why didnt you get a Nikon or Canon?" !!!

Link | Posted on Nov 6, 2019 at 22:28 UTC

Excellent photos, very artistically composed shots...
Now I wont be able to justify myself why I need any apsc/ff camera...
but then I dont have such great skills so my photos won't be so good if I decide not to get any new apsc/ff... :)

FuhTeng: I'm not interested in the Noct at all, but I'm delighted by the Z50 news. It's what I wanted last year but I got a Z6 instead. Just as Nikon intended.

For price alone, Z50 will win.
About 5 years ago when FF options were limited, apsc was a clear choice
Now with so many FF offerings, investing in APSC means at some point later, I will want to go FF and eventually I will end up with apsc+ff
So I would rather get my next one as FF !

It will be tough to decide between Z6 and Z50... The Z50 .. if it gets a 18-50/2.8 soon will be a good option

Jhaakas: Great from tech perspective, f/0.95
I can understand back in film era when you wanted to stay with low iso that such fast lenses would help.
But today when we can sure get excellent IQ even at 3200 ISO (or maybe more), what would be the benefits of F/0.95?
Also not to forget it will have an extremely thin DOF!

Thought so, would be interesting to see what sort of photos will benefit such large aperture

Link | Posted on Oct 10, 2019 at 11:45 UTC

In the meanwhile, we can see photos of Nikon Z50 .. a real camera!
