Our review

The Z8 brings the speed and autofocus capability of the Z9 to a smaller, more affordable body to deliver a camera that will support you in almost any photographic pursuit. It's a touch larger than its rivals but every facet of its abilities seems to be a match for those peers. It's perhaps the most complete camera we've yet tested.

Good for: Sports, wildlife, photojournalism, landscapes...

Not so good for: Travel photography where size and weight are critical.
