The arrival of a full production sample of the Nikon Z9 at our Seattle offices just before Christmas last year coincided with a heavy snowfall and extended period of cold weather in the Pacific Northwest. But undaunted, we ventured out into the ice and snow, to capture images in a variety of (mostly very cold) environments in and around Seattle. In this gallery you'll find images shot on various lenses, including the new Z 24-120mm F4 S and the Z 100-400mm F4.5-5.6 VR S, with and without the Z TC 1.4X teleconverter.

This is a preliminary gallery, shot mostly during the holidays, so you won't find any sports or action shots in here (there's plenty of that in our original pre-production gallery if you're curious) and don't worry – we'll be adding more images in the coming weeks.
