  • Trashing one another's brand on the web is merely a modern form of marketing. It is not only Nikon, Canon and Sony are trashed on a regular basis, perhaps by different web site and different ...
  • The 100-400mm S is similar in size as the 70-200mm/f2.8 S. Expect them to be similar in price also. Optical VR built into the lens is a given, for such a long lens. I expect it to be f4 or 4.5 on ...
  • Replied in 70-300
    Do they think we were in year 2008 to 2012 or so when DSLRs were selling like hot cakes? We have known for a year that at least according to the Z lens roadmap posted on October 10, 2019, for the ...
  • Both Canon and Nikon have just introduced flagship DSLRs at the beginning of this year, in preparation for the 2020 Tokyo Summer Olympics, which was postponed. How frequently would people expect ...
  • Please keep in mind that between the Canon mirrorless R5 and R6, only the R5 has one CFexpress/XQD card slot, and its second slot is SD, UHS-II. The Canon R6 has two SD card slots, no CFx/XQD. I ...
  • I have had a Z6 since as soon as it was shipped in November 2018. So far it has taken over all of my photography that doesn't require fast AF tracking. For the latter, I still use a D5 and D500. Th ...

    Only 1Ilusive can speak for him/herself, but too long may mean the focal length is too long or the lens is physically too long.
  • In my mind, not including the screwdriver is absolutely the right decision for the initial FTZ. However, down the road, it is possible for either Nikon or some third party to produce a version that ...
  • Good for you. Something similar shortly after I bought my D850 a couple of years back.
  • Replied in Not a lot...
    In fact, I am in the middle of gradually migrating to a system that allows me to: (1) use a compact 14-30mm/f4 zoom that accepts conventional filters
  • The FTZ is certainly not simple. The difficulty is to merry 1959-style mechanical aperture control to a 21st-century mirrorless body that has a wide mount with all electronic controls. Why? Isn't ...
  • Recall that the Z5 was announced back on July 21, 2020, initially at $1400: https://www.dpreview.com/news/6057317091/nikon-z5-is-an-entry-level-full-frame-camera-that-doesn-t-cut-corners At the ...
  • Replied in Not a lot...
    There are a lot more lenses than the 70-200mm/f2.8. Just take a very simple example: my 14-30mm/f4 S is a very versatile wide zoom that can accept conventional, 82mm screw-on filters. No such lens ...
  • It sounds like you have a 24MP sensor, i.e. Z6/Z6 II. The OP is talking about a Z7, on which I think a higher-capacity card is more appropriate. Sometimes I indeed shoot a lot of 4K video. I can ...
  • And just in case 1TB is still not enough, AngleBird makes a 2TB CFexpress card, and they have a pack of 4 of those for a coll $2790.99. It is still cheaper than another Z7 II body. :-D https://www. ...
  • Replied in New roadmap
    So far, there is no Nikkor Z-mount lens that is longer than 200mm. The short Z-mount lenses benefit greatly from the absence of the mirror so that their rear elements can be far closer to the ...
  • Again, 64G is not at all the sweet spot for CFx cards concerning price/G. I don't know about UK prices, but at least in the US, if you consider 128G cards, there are far more CFx selections than ...
  • Replied in New roadmap
    Nikon's F-mount 200-500mm/f5.6 is normally $1400, but there are occasional discounts. Sony's 200-600 is $2000. Since Nikon's Z-mount 200-600 will not be an S lens, I would expect a similar price ...
  • For the original Z7, i.e. not Z7 II, which is not yet available, I believe CFx cards are actually a bit slower than XQD cards. The Z6 and Z7 were not designed to take full advantage of CFx, which ...
  • Maybe, sorry, at least I am not familiar with such details about the internals of a Z6. Nowadays, it is mostly replace rather than repair. It is way too much trouble to unsolder some parts. ...
