Another interview with a Nikon executive on the new Nikon Z mirrorless cameras


Digitalcameraworld published another interview with a Nikon executive (see all previous Z interviews). Here are a few interesting quotes:

"I cannot confirm that, yes, we are doing a DX, but there will be models below the Z6. We will widen up the range to different users and different price brackets, definitely…"

"But having an S-line suggests that there should also be something else; non-S-line lenses, which will focus more on affordability."

"On the DSLR we could have chosen sensor-based VR because that technology exists already, but we chose lens VR because you then have the stable view in the optical viewfinder."

"Basically, if we had added the second card slot the camera would have been bigger – and we didn’t want that."

"Because of the new mount, actually you cannot make an apple-with-apple comparison of an f/1.8 lens with this system with an f/1.8 lens for a DSLR, because the f/1.8 from thew Z mount is more similar to the kind of image quality you’d get from an f/1.4 on a DSLR. So that’s really never-seen-before image quality."

"What we can see now is that the back orders for the Z7 are higher – maybe 60% to 40% for the Z6."
