Nikon Z7 II camera review at PhotographyBlog:

“Overall, the Nikon Z7 II – like its predecessor – is an excellent camera, with a good range of features and specifications which are likely to appeal to a diverse range of professional and high-end enthusiast photographers. Adding the secondary card slot is a real bonus for anybody using a camera for special events, such as weddings, where it’s absolutely vital that the pictures aren’t lost.”
