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.
