Dpreview published their Nikon Z7 camera review

Dpreview published their Nikon Z7 camera review, here is their overall conclusion:

“The Nikon Z7 – the brand’s first full-frame mirrorless camera – is also its most well-rounded camera for stills and video, and an exciting indicator for what’s to come from the 101 year-old company. But first generation products are rarely perfect, and the Nikon Z7 is no exception.”

What Nikon got right:

“For the most part, the camera feels, handles, and operates like a smaller, lighter full-frame Nikon DSLR – from button placement to menu layout, to the robustness of the build quality and the comfort of the grip. But there are some small differences, namely in the way the AF system operates. It is also the first Nikon full-framer with a truly useful silent shutter and in-body stabilization – both are hugely useful. On the cinema side, a wide variety of 4K video capture options that should satisfy both home-movie-makers and advanced videographers alike, but possibly not established professionals.”

Room for improvement:

“While the Z7 technically offers the same calculated Raw dynamic range as the D850, on sensor AF points lead to banding/striping which limits usable DR. Autofocus, while reliable in good light, hunts more than we’d like as light levels drop. And AF tracking as a whole lags behind the competition, as well as Nikon’s own full-frame DSLRs, both in terms of reliability and usability.”
