Dpreview tested the Nikon Z6 image quality and dynamic range: “the results of the Z6 and 50mm S lens are impressive”

The  Nikon Z6 coverage  continues -  Dpreview also published their Nikon Z6 image quality and dynamic range tests: The results of the Z6 and 50mm S lens are impressive, with consistent performance across the frame. The anti-aliasing filter appears a bit stronger than the Sony a7 III, which means a bit less detail but less occurrence of false color. While fine detail isn’t as well preserved at low ISO or at high ISO as the best of its peers, the Z6 generally strikes a nice balance between noise and detail.

The different Nikon EN-EL15 battery versions

A reader sent me some additional information on the different Nikon EN-EL15 battery versions  based on feedback from Nikon support: Q: Can you confirm if the battery life in the D850 is the same for both EN-EL15 black batteries and the EN-EL15a grey batteries? I have seen conflicting accounts in the press.

Lensvid interview with Nikon at Photokina (Nikon Z and more)

Lensvid published their interview with Dirk Jasper from Nikon taken during the 2018 Photokina show – their main topic of discussion was of course the new Z mirrorless (more Nikon Z interviews can be found here ): Here is a recap of the interview: Nikon wasn’t willing to state exactly when the work on the Nikon Z started (a good guess would be at least 3 or so years ago) but it did mention that the now discontinued Nikon 1 cameras were indeed the basis for at least some of the technologies we are now seeing in the Z cameras. The upcoming NIKKOR Z 58mm f/0.95 S Noct is more of a proof of concept for Nikon to show was this mount could do in terms of image quality and speed (Jasper actually mentioned the Zeiss Otus by name here and suggested that we might see a new fast prime king with this lens). Nikon had endless discussions about changing the mount and although Jasper was not willing to openly state that the large mount was developed to support larger sensors in the future it certainly seems that way from his answer.

The latest Nikon Z6/Z7 reviews

The latest Nikon Z6/Z7 reviews: → Nikon Z7 review by Ming Thein : “On an absolute scale, what we have here is not revolution but thorough evolution – much as the D3 was in its day. And as the D3, this represents a massive quantum leap of innovation for conservative Nikon; though the Z7 isn’t the second coming of sliced Jesus there are enough solid improvements over the D850, and not too many compromises (some of which are firmware-fixable). For a first try, it’s remarkable effort
