Second part interview with Nikon on the Z mirrorless

Digitalkamera.de  updated their initial interview with Nikon on the Z mirrorless cameras ( see all previous Z interviews ). You can use the AF Nikkor 14mm f/2.8D ED lens with the FTZ adapter on the Nikon Z6/Z7 (it is not included in the preliminary list of incompatible lenses) however, fisheye lenses (6mm f/5.6, 7.5mm f/5.6, 8mm f/8, 10mm f/5.6) are generally not compatible. The Nikon Z7 currently doesn’t offer menu option “negative digitization” like the D850 for using the ES-2 adapter .

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.

Q&A on the new Nikon Z mirrorless system

The German website DigitalKamera published Q&A on the new Nikon Z mirrorless system (based on conversations with Nikon employees): Nikon will continue to develop both DSLR and mirrorless cameras and lenses Nikon has no plans for using a larger sensor in a Z-mount cameras The Nikon Z sensors were developed by Nikon and manufactured according to Nikon specifications by a sensor manufacturer (not specified which one) The new Nikon Z-mount is not licensed to other manufacturers The new f/1.8 mirrorless lenses offer the best compromise between size, image performance and price The “S” in the new S-line mirrorless lenses stays for ” Superior ” (for the highest quality) The new Z 35mm f/1.8 S mirrorless lens , for example, has a better performance than the current AF-S 35mm f/1.8G ED DSLR lens The Nikon Z 58mm Noct S is manual focus because it is very difficult and expensive to move large and heavy glass elements with an AF motor It takes approximately 2.5 hours to change an empty battery via USB-C The Nikon Z6/Z7 cameras cannot be operated via the USB-C socket Nikon Z6/Z7 remote controllers: Nikon MC-DC2 remote release or the WR-1 and WR-R10 wireless controllers can be used GPS connectivity for Nikon Z6/Z7: with Nikon GP-1 or SnapBridge (no internal compass data): Related posts: Another interesting interview with a Nikon executive on the new Z mirrorless system Additional information on the first lens adapters for Nikon Z6/Z7 mirrorless cameras A closer look at the Nikon Z6 and Z7 mirrorless cameras
