First Nikon Z mirrorless camera report from somebody who actually used the camera

Here is an actual hands-on report from somebody who actually handled the Nikon Z mirrorless cameras last week in a closed-door event in Asia:

  • The Nikon Z6/Z7 have many similarities to the Sony’s 7 series
  • The new Z-mount is almost as large as medium format mount for some 6×6 SLR cameras
  • Handling and ergonomics are perfect
  • The Nikon Z6 and Nikon Z7 have exactly the same body and use the same battery
  • The EVF is fixed
  • There are no scene modes
  • There is a green AUTO mode as well as PSAM and 3 user settings
  • Both 24-70 f/4 and 50 f/1.8 lenses have a very fast AF, on the test images there were some signs of vignetting when shooting wide open

And now a word about the last Nikon mirrorless camera teaser – some readers were disappointed, but we actually got confirmations for two major rumors I have already reported: the new Noct lens and the Z-Nikkor 24-70mm f/4 kit lens. Keep in mind that when the teaser videos were produced, Nikon did not know that some of the details will leak online. The return of the Noct is a BIG deal (at least for me).

Here are some screenshots from the last teaser video showing the upcoming Nikon Z-Nikkor 24-70mm f/4 mirrorless full frame kit lens (originally reported here):
