nikon z5 specs

Please wake up. Yes, all that was true 6 years ago. I understand that the awards are granted with different criteria. I felt like I was using my X-Pro 1. Nikon Z5 has a 24.0MP Full frame (35.9 x 23.9 mm) sized CMOS sensor and features Expeed 6 processor. Specs are not known about the Z9 at this time, but I would be willing to bet the farm that there will be two card slots given the intense backlash Nikon has gotten about the single slot on the Z7. Under normal logic Nikon would sell these by the droves. This is not true no matter how many times it gets repeated. But.. geez, it's almost like you're complaining that Fuji's files aren't noisy enough. A Nikon Z Mirrorless Safari; Z5 FAQ; Z6/Z7 FAQ; Z50 FAQ; Smaller and Lighter, or Not? However if you wish to compare, please go ahead. The Z5's 24 megapixels cannot stand-up to the Sony's 42 megapixels; nor can Z5 4K with a massive crop (almost 50%!) The Z5 is far superior to the A7R II in everything but resolution, but if your needs are mostly for subjects that don't move, it's pretty compelling. @Ninja Flyer, Canon and Sony are making smaller, lighter and better lenses. But strong rumors point to a Canon M50ii, which may well outgun the Z50. The Nikon Z5 is a great buy for those brand new to full-frame photography, and it has an appealing range of specifications that should suit lots of different type of photographers. I'm sure you are correct that the seven year-old sensor in the Z5 is superior to anything from twelve years ago. It offers most of the features of the more expensive Z6, which is a pleasant surprise given the difference in cost. The Nikon Z5 might feature an APS-C sensor and dual card slots . Here’s a selection of prices. @ionbar, yes I want FF 4K uncropped for $1400 because it’s possible. NinjaFlyer, a big mount doesn't mean big heavy glass. If you want new tech your gonna get it with them well before Nikon roles it out. Great price on a good camera.The camera crash has had the benefit of driving prices down. Who would use a built in flash? The A7iii is what I consider the first usable Sony A7 camera. Sigma's new primes promise very good performance and light weight, when paired with L-mount and Sony E-mount mirrorless interchangeable lens cameras. Check out the winners of the 2020 DPReview Awards! Over there, everyone got 2K a month to stay home. I’d definitely buy the 780 over both the Z5 and 6. @ Wezre - well you list the few existing (some still lack availabillity) Nikon Z lenses, and still they are more expensive. … Affordable entry point to the Nikon Z system. @ bernardlang the Z5 is not destined to be a guaranteed success, dual card slots or not - this is not a professional level camera and as such is fairly expensive. The R and RP have only 1(one) SD (SecureDigital) slot!A XQD card is practically bomb-proof, it's as reliable as having 2 SD slots, but faster (per Sony claim). But with the Z6 you'd have to spend a lot extra on an XQD memory card, whereas the Z5 will take much cheaper SD cards, > with the Z6 you'd have to spend a lot extra on an XQD memory card. Nikon has got everything right except the marketing. The D750, Z5, D780 and Z6 do not all share the same or similar sensors. Human nature is an evil thing. A great mirrorless video camera from Nikon? The 2nd wave in Europe isn't all _that_ grave so far. Speaking of the Techart TZE-01, I have one of those too. The frame rate is higher too, 5 FPS vs 4.5 FPS. The issue is that with ISO above 200, skin texture in Fuji files degenerate into a slight watercolour effect very fast. In fact I would venture to say that most entry level buyers prefer the lower resolution of 24MP...easier to work with on your computers. The shutter of the A7R II is also good for 500.000 actuations. Thanks for making my point! And Mirroless is not increasing in absolute numbers, its decreasing so is DSLR but in a faster pace. Alright, I’m gonna be that person. BTW, on the argument not to buy entry-level cameras: I've often bought a camera at the lower end of an enthusiast/semi-pro range and invested my money in good glass. It can entirely replace an f2.8 flagship zoom in most cases, if you keep an S 50mm f1.8 in your bag for real low light situations.

In addition, hygenic practices have been increased everywhere, people do wear masks in highly frequented places. It seems strange to me that a mirrorless camera would be seen as targeted for stills shooters and not so hot for video enthusiasts. The 'One Shot' documentary highlights the incredible amount of preparation and work involved in photographers capturing iconic moments in Olympic history. Sure the number of cases rises, but the number of deaths and the number of people in intensive care is still rather low. The new Z series cameras do look intriguing, but I'm having no trouble wheedling clinically sharp details out of my Fuji when I want them. The adapter will bring full autofocus, aperture control and EXIF data transfer capabilities to Pentax K-mount lenses when used on select Sony E-mount camera systems. I have eight F mount and three S lenses: for stills there is no performance difference. Their leaders don't refuse free WHO test kits so they can funnel all the PPE through their son in law's personal businesses. If f/4 is enough aperture it is small, light, and very good optically. Note that at least some of the stuff below was fixed with firmware updates: * No direct AF point control. Maybe they could have made more money if they omitted the touch bar too. I know, there was even the 300D Firmware Hack from Features of the 10D, but back then, i still prefered my 10D, which i still own today, 17 years later. Sensor: Despite being an older sensor the performance difference is fairly small. I'm a fan of Nikon and wanting to upgrade from my D7000. My Z50 focuses faster and better than the Z5. 24.3-megapixel full-frame CMOS image sensor. The A7R II's 45 MP will certainly be better for landscapes, or other applications where more resolution matter, but the Z5 image quality is nearly indiscernible to the Z 6, A 7III, etc. It's available in Canon EF, Fuji X, Leica M, M42, MFT, Nikon F, Pentax K and Sony E mounts and the first units are expected to ship in January 2021. Nikon hasn't put out compact f2.8 lenses yet (f2.8 pancakes are on the road map, 40mm and 28mmm). Otherwise you snicker and join in. What part of "entry level" went over your head? Oh, and it's a lot of fun too. i thought Canon is the darkside? In this buying guide we’ve rounded up all the current interchangeable lens cameras costing around $2000 and recommended the best. Whether that's worth the price difference is a subjective decision. So sure if someone wants a 5 year old camera that doesn't include all of the improvements that Sony came to introduce later, then the a7RII is there. The D780 is being lauded for having the best Nikon DSLR video quality ever. Hmm this review makes me want to quit canon and go to the "darkside". I loved the ergonomics of the X-H1 before I moved over to Nikon but Fuji X-Trans 26 MP sensor only holds up for BW photography. Not so in the US, @Joachim Wulfers Depends where you live, combined sales tax can be up to 10% which is even more than here..

Nikon Z5 Specs; Nikon Z6 Specs; Nikon Z6 II Specs; Nikon Z7 Specs; Nikon Z7 II Specs; Nikon Z50 Specs; Z Camera Articles. So, it won my money. This is a great camera but 89%?If we follow your methodology we will have landscape oriented cameras, video oriented cameras, still oriented cameras and so on.In my opinion is that 89% is not correct. Switching to native lenses on my Z6 has been a revelation over my previous lenses, and especially my previous lenses with the D750. What makes you say that? Make no mistake; so far every Z-mount S lens has been superior to the equivalent F-mount lens, and pretty much any other lens in its price range. There are some exceptions but overall that’s the case. If the Z5 were more similar to Z6 it would be a Z6. With a 42 MP camera you get a very decent 18 MP APS-C crop, increasing the focal length of your lenses. I often buy Nikon F lenses for my Z6, as they are almost equally good, perform at native levels and cost about half as much at any given focal length. My favourite Sony lens is the full frame 35mm f2.8 ZA as it weighs 120grams and is tiny. But remember, a used Eos R/5D Mark 4 today still more expensive than the Z5 body only. Sony lenses are much more expensive than Nikon lenses. Photographer and YouTuber Todd Dominey has shared a video that details the history of Kodak Aerochrome film, a film stock he says has 'an origin story unlike any other.'. Just checked 'on-line', and the body only will be available at €1500. Compare that in Europe 8,800 people are intensive car in the U.S. 14,000.

As in, "Best SO cameras for under $2,000.". adapting lenses is the last resort if you have no other option. If you value what high resolution brings and want to use 4K with wide angle lenses, it’s the better choice. Native ISO range of 100-51,200, expandable up to ISO 102,400. Nikon sells the body cheap, so they can get people to buy the super expensive Z lenes. The title says it all..the best VALUE stills-oriented full framer. No price is given at this time, but the adapter is set to be available by the end of the year. AtahualpaThe second wave is just beginning. Not to mention the build quality and durability is suspect. Problem is Nikon is muddling the presentation to customers and have been for a couple of years transitioning to mirrorless. The Z6 was from August, 2018 and it wasn’t quite state of the art when announced. If you're just joining us, the 937 posts below seem to generally tilt toward the Z5 being a nice camera (I agree), but: a.) At low ISOs the Z5 sensor actually has better DR. FPS: The fps is a bit low. * Subject tracking in video is poor, while the complete auto 'Wide' mode is prone to jump to the background or between subjects in complex scenes. Autofocus works great , indeed better as there is no microfocus adjustment required and mirrorless focus is more accurate than DSLR phase detect. Canon's first FF mirrorless has one slot. Folks often talk about how camera companies cut features from a model to make a less expensive one. Welcome to the pipe and slippers FF. I wasn't expecting miracles but I find it pretty darn mediocre. :)). Just wait for the October announcement for the new Z6s/7s. ), corner-to-corner clarity and sharp magnification. Evidently he is a sociopath who has no life outside these forums. Nikon full frame vs Fuji APS-C is a good laugh. The Z5 is also a great value. Here is the list of Nikon Z5 features that are inferior to the older but slightly more expensive Z6: Z5: Six year-old non-BSI sensor, ISO range 50-102400Z6: Modern BSI sensor ISO range 50-204800, Z5: LCD screen 1 million dotsZ6: LCD screen 2 million dots, Z5: Massive 1.7x 4K video cropZ6: No video crop, Z5: Plastic back and baseZ6: Magnesium alloy. I would like to default to subject tracking with moveable focus box and then press Fn1 or another custom button to switch to single point AF. only, a dim-lit, small PentaMirror OVF, instead of a bright Pentaprism one, no decent Al-mg Body build Quality, no Top Shoulder Display, etc. Then there is the,... kit lens, and it's limited zoom range. Of course I know the Z6 exists. I agree with mkowalski. In this era of people buying new cell phones every year with new tricks, it seems so much more is expected in new devices, and cameras are now tech devices. Oleg,"their own DPReview TV made a video on that Firmware 3.0, and stated that its AF is still mediocre at best[...]". I never said it was "great". PS: in Europe the price is too high for all cameras.The RP is not cheap either - 1300E vs Z5 1600E. Agreed and forgot to mention the D780 which is just about the DSLR version of the Z6; but why 5 cameras with basically the same sensor? Read on to find out more. Are the price can consider as entry-level FF? looks like a nice entry level camera, now it only needs to sell on a lower price than the Z6.But I bet Nikon will stop selling the original Z6 after releasing the mkii. Compact and capable, the Nikon Z 5 is an FX-format mirrorless camera with a well-rounded feature-set to suit both photo and video needs. But its price will also see it have to square up against Sony's a7 Mark II. A7RII uses pixel binning for full-frame 4K. There is ZERO in common with third party adapters. With all my lenses 24-70f4, 35,50, and 85f1.8 it struggled to get focus lock in single-point mode. Can't compared this directly to A7C which is a different category of FF on its own. Just wanna explore the video side (beginner) at a budget price? BTW, did they ever resolve that overheating problem? Now you can adapt that mature E mount lens catalog to Nikon Z and it even works pretty well (give Techart some time and firmware updates, it will work better still) so there's that. Can verify that the shadow detail is there. I don't think that RP is tempting enough for modern buyers. I don't understand Nikon's mirrorless strategy. It’s leaps and bounds beyond DSLRs in many cases, yet I don’t hear anyone bashing AF on the 5D or D850. The Nikon Z5 vs The Nikon Z6/Z7. View our sample gallery to see how a bit of shift can change a photo or introduce creative effects. "THOUGHTS" IS PAID TO POST PRO-CANON AND ANTI-SONY PROPAGANDA. And sold all my Fuji gear. In the blink of an iris. Full frame mirrorless with a large mount means big honking heavy glass. my gran used to say: If you've nothing worth saying, say nothing. And WRT the 'fake' ISO, I can set my Fuji on ISO 200 and use it as a light meter for a film camera with 200 speed film in it, and the film will come out exposed correctly. So it’s only about the lenses lacking an equivalent in either Z or F mount and the main ones end up being very compact Voigtlander MF lenses. The Canon RF 800mm F11's unique combination of telephoto reach, affordability and light weight will likely enable even more people to do the same. The 65mm T2 completes Vazen's set of anamorphic lenses for the Micro Four Thirds system. That seems like a pretty ridiculous blanket statement. They are crap! Also the fireman looks fine to me. oops. Duh. The strongest wording Chris' use in the comparison video regarding the Z6 is "[...]I still feel the overall AF performance may be be the weakest of the three". Roqueiroz and MDLR both inserted Sony references. I love my RP! If they give it a gold award at this point, there is no doubt that the Sony a7C will have one too, what a joke. You can see every blemish on the fireman's skin; every subtle shadow gradation if you look for it, looks pretty clear and sharp to me. ;-) All I know is I’m happy I refunded the X-T4 with 16-80mm and replaced it with the Z5 + 24-200mm. An 'entry level' FF with dual card slots at that price? All content, design, and layout are Copyright © 1998 - 2020 Digital Photography Review All Rights Reserved. I just realized something - is this the first written review done before the video-review of a camera since Chris and Jordan joined DPR team? Free at point of service healthcare. I have the Z6, and the Z5 I had was not even close in the autofocus department. I just use the LCD for menu and reviewing images. ", This was not my experience. Otherwise I probably would have been very satisfied with a Z5 as a mainly stills photographer. The thing though is that there are few, if any, FE lens I’d rather have than it’s Nikon Z mount counterpart. It doesn't look like new R buyers are rushing to buy the best RF lenses at lower prices. Today Nikon is positioned better than Canon in mirrorless and much better in DSLRs. Upon relating his negative experience with third party adapters and Sony bodies, it sounds like Uncoy did answer that question. Yes, my older ones looked a little bit waxy sometimes at 5000+, but you can imagine the abysmal light requiring such high ISO. There are a lot of photo/video cameras that have found a role as B-cameras on professional productions or A-camera for amateur and independent productions. Thanks to the enormous customs fees, it cost the same amount of money when we ship from the US to Europe than to buy directly in Europe... @zephyrion974won't it sell with 24-200mm and body-only?it will drop in price in time, if Z6 II will get shipped around christmas - we could see a significant drop in price for it (if we're lucky) :). From customer standpoint Z5 makes no sense. Nikon designed the Z5 as a more affordable version of the Nikon Z6 and Z7 full-frame mirrorless cameras. 1920 x 1080 @ 50p, MOV, H.264, Linear PCM. Please Help. Actually, the Z5 is a lift-up reincarnation of the 6-year old A7m2 technology. Yes, Nikon is the only company affected by the 2nd wave it seems. The $50 FTZ adapters are so existing Nikon users can use their F-mount lenses to fill in the gaps in the Z lens lineup. I have used Sony and Canon, but the fan boy mentality is intense on camera blogs for some brands, haha. No bad choices between the two. ShameHad they installed 2 slots in their first 2 z, they would have made a lot more money. If what you want is good image quality for a low price it seems like it'll do that. Looks like Sony did and still do the biased review over the years from various youtube channels, that is why this kind of statement is coming from you. You talked like Z6 never existed. My issue is that I would like to see a score of 90 or over for Gold Award cameras. That should allow him to form his own opinion. You know, because crop sensors are noisier than full frame. So will see how the Z6 II pans out. quite. Because in Europe, by and large, (and yes, I've been there-twice) they take care of their people, not just their stock market and Corporations. What about some "native" Nikon AF-S lenses such as 50mm 1.8G or 35 1.8G? In the $1300 gray / $1.400 US price range of the Z5, Sony only offers the A7R II ($1.300), which isn't bad, at all. Nikon Z5 and Z3 Expand Into APS-C Territory I'm glad you're admitting that you're a troll. This insanity has to stop. The review notes that some of these such as Subject Tracking during continuous shooting is something even most DSLRs struggle with. Here's why he thinks it's such a tempting camera – and why he may buy one in 12 months' time. Adapting lenses via a camera manufacturers own adapter – Nikon F to Z or Canon EF to RF – is an entirely different experience. If you want a more subtle color, it's right there in the Q menu. these are different size sensor.

The Nikon Z5 entry-level Z-mount full frame mirrorless camera is expected to be announced on July 21st, 2020. I have posted in the Nikon Z forum about this and it seems others have had the same experience. The camera as described has too many limitations IMHO to deserve the top gold award, and despite being described as close to the Z6, it actually has a lot of significant differences. Video is not an advantage of mirrorless. The Z5 meanwhile is built to phenomenal standard with best in business build quality and will soon sell for what is incredible value compared to its competition. Which part of Europe is doing this? The Nikon Z5 shoots 4K Ultra HD/30p plus 1080/60p footage, but it is cropped, so that’s a bit of a drawback if you shoot a lot of video. A7RII is not even touch screen. For what it's worth, rankings at the largest camera retailer in Japan: I originally thought about getting a prime for doing portrait shoots, but then I just took this lens in the 50-70 range and the results are always incredibly good. Slow focus? It depends on the kit you look at.If we talk about the Z5+24-200mm f/4-6.3 it's really competitive - I want it.the RP+24-240 f/4-6.3 is a lot cheaper with the discount, but for hiking +200g and no weather sealing is... not compelling :D. Stills oriented? I ran mine in video mode spitting out HDMI output for five hours straight yesterday and nothing went wrong. Video: Unfortunately, the best the sensor can do. "Entry-level" cameras are underrated. The Nikon Z5 is clearly targeted at the same photographers at Canon's EOS RP. Keep in mind that Euro prices include VAT. Shedding some light on the sources of noise, Canon EOS Rebel T8i (EOS 850D / EOS Kiss X10i), Olympus M.Zuiko Digital ED 12-100mm F4.0 IS Pro, * The Weekly Image Thread 20 11 30 #504 *. So pour a tall cold one and get ready to treat yourself, 2020 style. I think the reviews reflect the reality which is that Nikon Z cameras are very good sensor wise and very good value and functionality at the different price points. Most of these differences will not impact real world still photography. Geez, can we all grow up and acknowledge that each of the major manufacturers produce great cameras, but in individual categories, some are a little better than others. @meoreI have Z6 and native AF-S or AFP lenses on Z perform better than even on native F mount. They're just a way of Nikon saying "We made a ton of F-mount lenses; they're great, they're out there, and you can use them on a Zx without trouble.". Nikon will soon announce a new Nikon Z5 entry-level full frame mirrorless camera in the second half of July, 2020. You can see in my gear list what I had. It has a 55mm inner diameter, larger than the old F mount, and has a flange focal distance of only 16.00mm. That noise reduction (plus cheating half a stop on ISO) is why Fuji seems to be a full stop better in high ISO than other APS-C cameras. Sony's first two generations had one slot. The 300D was the 1st cheapskate DSLR for the Masses. This year, despite the disruption, plenty of amazing cameras, lenses, accessories and other products came through our doors. - the Z5 owns the low end, Canon has absolutely nothing close- the Z50 is a much more appealing proposition than the M that is a clear dead end with no migration path to FF and a super limited lenses range that will not grow. If you hand someone a Z5 and an a7RII, and just have them choose on feel, I bet most choose the Z5. No joke, no exaggeration, it's that simple. EXPEED 6 image processor. Interesting. Forget about low light. Can't the Z5 shoot 1080p just fine, and doesn't it spit out HDMI to an external recorder if you need it? Done. We've combed through the options and selected our two favorite cameras in this class. I’d buy the Canon RP before the A7ii. Compelling camera. The ergonomics of the Sony a7RII are also pretty bad, worse than the models that came later as Sony tweaked stuff to respond to criticism. Yes, Z6 is better in several areas as you pointed out, but it's also (currently) $500 more expensive (body only). > will not offer the same allround capabilities as a Z5. They'll get there on the cheaper lenses. For the Sony A7 III be ready to shell out a lot of money, since it's NOT an entry level camera. As usual, you can clearly see that Nikon Z5 camera features a larger sensor and a built-in IBIS unit inside. As an entry level full frame camera good 1080P video performance should be enough for most people. They lost money for 10 years after buying K-M. @ berardlang - the Z lenses are slow AF, large, mostly good IQ. If only Ttamron was making these great Di3 lenses for Nikon... huh? Still has more dynamic range than z6 check photos to photons. 3840 x 2160 @ 25p, MOV, H.264, Linear PCM. Review: Does the Canon Rebel T8i DSLR make sense in an increasingly mirrorless world? Want the latest and greatest from Nikon mirrorless? They look how people really look. I also bought the camera after this review. This sensor is better than the one of the D3x... that was a real MF digital back killer.... with which I have made breathtaking A1 prints. LCD: A reasonable place to save cost. The new camera will be available for special order in early 2021. They were able to reduce cost without impacting value. You got the Z6. The elderly people and those at risk are cautious. I shoot both S glass and F glass on my Z6. Nikon D800's sensor provides 12MP more than Nikon Z5's sensor, which gives a significant advantage in real life. I shot with mostly F-mount lenses when I first got my Z6, then bit the bullet and sold it all for S-line Nikkors. It reminds me of people buying cheap printers for $39 and charging $59 for ink refills. Nikon loses on lens as well: Only a handful of native-mount lenses available, while for Sony we are looking at 100+. A colour photographer would be much better off with a Nikon full frame 35mm camera than anything else on the market. Anyone who caries around a camera and doesn't want to carry a flash gun just to get some occasional fill flash. The only lens that I had that could kind of keep up was the Tamron 17-35mm 2.8-4. Long time Nikon user. Look at the DPR Comparison Tool. The 14-24mm f2.8 and 24-70mm f2.8 are the lighest, most compact and highest quality on the market. What a great offering from Nikon. I could keep going, but the takeaway is that the lenses are close in price and each company has some that are more/less expensive than the other. It's built around a stabilized non-BSI 24MP CMOS sensor, which is likely more closely related to the generation of chip found in Nikon's D750 DSLR, rather than the newer BSI sensor in the Z6. Deliverator: Our first troll of the day, with a typically stupid comment that trolls like to make. Wow, this mantra of "adapted lenses are bad" is tedious. In fact I saw 'better', was more creative and thoughtful and learnt far more with entry level kit...and anyway, NOTHING about this cam is entry level if you were started with film in a manual rangefinder. How do you know? Z6 is in a higher category. Health care is much better. I am an EVF user and it is great on an Z6. I've just (10/3/2020) checked that the Z5 on is EUR 1549 while the Z6 is EUR 1493, Sony A7m2 is 955, and Sony A7m3 is 1942, all prices in euros. The EVF is very grainy in dark conditions , at least on mine. The trick is not to buy a truly low-end camera; otherwise you miss out on basic pro features like good manual controls.

It also has the traditional focus area modes Wide, Center, Flexible Spot, Expand Flexible Spot and Lock-on AF. The best cameras for under $1000 should have good ergonomics and controls, great image quality and be capture high-quality video. Eye detection autofocus is not very reactive and the rear tilting screen not very lisable in strong light especially at different angles.But the sensor's dynamic range is excellent as is image quality.They give it 3 stars out of 5, not quite gold.They don't really understand why a FF sensor camera is marketed with such a poor zoom lens.Helps to read various reviews to have a good vision of a product, especially if physical photographic shops are lacking. Being a long time Nikon user doesn't automatically make you a good Nikon future predictor. Ignore anyone that brings up the RP at all. The Z lenses are expensive but extraordinarily sharp. We are in a 2nd lock down and unemployment is 20%+ and I figure other places are suffering as well. Sounds like a Fuji Fan Boy response. With Fuji there's no way to bring that information back as it's rounded out when the image is saved. Don't forget to include the prices of the 85/1.8. DPReview is in my eyes a reliable source of information and really glad you're having your site like you do!In my initial testing I was finding the AF-C quite unreliable and did some tests because I wondered if my lens or camera was bad.To make a long story short, I found that I had problems because I tried the camera in the evening with artificial light and read afterwards, that the Z5 only focuses down to -2EV ( -3EV with low light AF setting) while the Z6 goes down to -4EV (-6EV low light setting), and the Z6ii even to -4.5EV (-6EV).My opinion is that you should have elaborated a litte more on that, because there are quite a few people that shoot in not too bright (while not really dim) artificial light and that difference to the Z6 can't be expected when one reads your review. There you can see the logic in buying the RP, you have to pay 30% more for the Z5 or 40% if both are US versions. These portraits aren't watercolor. Nikon Z5 Key Features and Specs. The new Laowa 15mm F4.5 Shift lens lets you go wide with perspective control. It's absolutely no use for mid-ISO colour photography. Take a look.

Adapting lenses from other systems (most famously EF to Sony E mount) is fairly awful. And we've been busy enjoying the last licks of summer with it by our side. I feel this has worked out well. Z5 inherited a version of that sensor I thought. Depending on which system you're in and what your needs are, they might just be the compact, well-priced and impressively sharp little primes you've been looking for. In my opinion, the only thing it has in common with the Z6 is the Body and Viewfinder. 24-50 is hard to find on it's own right now i think, so you should be able to get a decent price for it. @bernardlang, I can grant that, at least here in Italy, the R6 is selling A LOT, sorry for that. It seems that Nikon is working on a competitor to Canon’s entry-level EOS RP full-frame mirrorless camera. I had Panasonic FZ2000 as well as Mamiya RZ67. Nikon Z5 is more suitable for wedding and event photography. Likewise, the Z5's max burst rate and video capabilities are considerably less than that of the Z6: 4.5 fps vs. 12 fps and heavily cropped 4K vs. un-cropped, oversampled 4K.
