Nikon Z7 User Reviews

Announced Aug 23, 2018 •
46 megapixels | 3.2 screen | Full frame sensor

Nice camera for most subjects. But for me and moving animals/sports not very fast - buffer is good - 5 pics not so - but the viewfinder is nervous and can't even catch-up with 5 pictures/sec. If I compare with Sony 7R3 or 7R4 - Nikon loses in to many aspects. Even with the new, light 5.6/500 mm and 4/300 mm PF not my choice for tele-photography. Picture Quality is very good, ahead of Canon EOS R, Fujifilm X-T3, Panasonic G9, Olympus M1X and close to Sony 7R4. Has very good AWB - much better ...

Rather than inserting images here, please see my fairly large gallery of 'sample' photos I've made with my Z7 over the last 2 months HERE . As I said in the title, the Z7 is much better than I had imagined it would be.  When I first saw the announcement in the past and read about the specs and features, I wasn't super impressed.  But I gave it more thought later on (thinking I would just keep my Sony a7R III / 24-105 f/4 combo) and the idea of the Z6 or Z7 started to appeal to me more and ...

Wanted to put up a Z7 review after using it for a few months. Coming from a D800E, it's a huge step up for what I shoot, simple as that. What I like: (1) IQ is outstanding (as expected) including with kit lens (2) IQ through FTZ is also outstanding, my Zeiss primes and Sigma Arts shine on the Z7 (3) With the kit 24-70f4 its a really superb travel camera, the IQ, ...

I purchased my Z7 with the kit Z 24-70 f/4 S primarily for travel, and it has not disappointed. So I wanted to do a short review for those who might also be considering this camera for travel. Size and weight . Nikon clearly took a different approach from Canon wrt its first mirrorless lens offerings. While Canon chose to go with what I would call more typical DSLR-size lenses, Nikon chose a different approach--slightly slower but very high quality lenses that deliver outstanding IQ at a ...

Here is a Z7 review I have put together. I was going to post the full review here but I don't like how this forum handles photos. Maybe its just in my head but I never think they look as good on here. Here is the link to the review: https://www.fredmiranda.com/forum/topic/1570123

Awesome camera !! The images you get out of these camera are really pro-grade. The COLORS are so much better !! The auto-focus works perfectly with the lenses I have. 24-70 f4 S, 50mm f1.8, 35mm f1.8. Snapbrige mobile app works seamlessly. The camera overall is very well made. This is very well suited for the long-exposure night time photographs. The RAW files you get out of this camera is so sharp and chessy !! The battery power is good for ~700 stills. I was quite critical when I bought ...

I did all the reading up on the Nikon Z7 and watched as many online videos as I could before sinking serious money into an untried new camera. Most of what I read and saw was from professional reviewers who had not actually had the real finished camera in their hands, and they seemed to come from a skeptical and critical point of view. Fine, but I bought it anyway to take along on a job in Philadelphia for a long time sculptor client. My main camera has been the D810 for a good while, and I ...

After having used a D200 and then a D800, I hesitated for a long time about buying a D850, to the point I had it in my hands in a merchant in Orchard St in Singapore. I hesitated enough to let it go and when the Z7 appeared I thought the time was ripe to get into mirrorless. I reserved a Z6 at my local (and trustworthy) dealer in Toulouse, thinking that with the 36 Mpixels of the D800 and the 20 something of the Z6 I would be set. When I attended a small event (Nikon events are usually small) ...

First a disclaimer: I haven't touched or even seen a Z camera or lens live, thus the subject title saying "metareview". For those not familiar with the term: In science, a “meta-analysis” of the literature on some topic is conducted by analyzing all published results on the topic and obtaining what is considered the state of the art consensus, determining the points still under debate, etc. It’s not a piece of original research (so this is not an original "review" by a user). I have developed ...
