Imatest results: Nikon Z7, Nikkor Z 35mm f/1.8 and 24-70mm f/4

The Australian site PhotoReview published the Imatest results for the Nikon Z7 camera, Nikkor Z 35mm f/1.8 and 24-70mm f/4 S lenses: Nikkor Z 35mm f/1.8 S lens ( $846.95 ) Imatest results: “Technologically, we expected the 35mm f/1.8 S lens to out-perform its F-mount equivalents but we haven’t reviewed the Nikkor AF-S F-mount equivalent. It certainly did better than the Tamron SP AF 35mm f/1.8 Di VC USD lens we reviewed in November 2015.” ( source ) Nikkor Z 24-70mm f/4 S lens ( $996.95) Imatest results: “Although the highest resolution measured in out tests is not quite as high as that of the 35mm f/1.8 S lens, it’s not far behind in most of the features we tested. Unfortunately, once again, we haven’t reviewed an equivalent Nikon F-mount lens we can compare it with.” ( source ) Nikon Z7 ( $3,996.95 ) Imatest resolution vs ISO settings: The body size and ergonomics.

Nikon Z conspiracy theories

Next are some Nikon Z conspiracy theories as published by Thom Hogan  (check his article for a more detailed explanation): Sony withheld important AF functionality from the sensors they gave Nikon, particularly Eye AF (zero credibility) Nikon intentionally crippled the Z cameras to keep DSLR sales up (over exaggerated) Nikon just copied Sony (nonsense) Nikon will die due to low Z sales (zero credibility) Sony will be hurting (zero credibility) There is only one way to get rid of the websites and YouTube channels that have been spreading conspiracy theories and fake news for a while – boycott them and they will disappear!

New era for Nikon (Nikon Z7 camera hands-on report)

Here is a quick Nikon Z7 mirrorless camera hands-on report by Richard Costin  ( Facebook | Twitter | Instagram ) – please note that this was a pre-production model that doesn’t have the final firmware yet (all reports you have seen online are from a pre-production model): Build quality  top notch Image quality  as reviewed on camera fantastic, at least to the D850 standard I estimate. Low light was punchy & noise free. Auto-Focus  quick and smooth both with native z lenses and using the f-mount adapter.
