Nikon Z7 firmware update 1.03 and Nikon Z6 firmware update 1.01 released

Nikon just released new firmware updates for the Z6 and Z7 mirrorless cameras: Nikon Z7 Firmware Version 1.03 Nikon Z6 Firmware Version 1.01 Here is the list of changes: Nikon Z7 Firmware Version 1.03:  When On is selected for HDMI >  Advanced >  N-Log setting in the SETUP MENU, Maximum sensitivity now takes effect during movie recording if: the camera is in mode P (programmed auto), S (shutter-priority auto), or A (aperture-priority auto), or the camera is in mode M (manual) and On is selected for ISO sensitivity settings >  Auto ISO control (mode M) in the MOVIE SHOOTING MENU. Fixed an issue that resulted in third-party software showing an incorrect value for the Exif 35 mm format equivalent focal length field for photographs taken with a non-CPU lens connected via an FTZ mount adapter with the focal length specified using the Non-CPU lens data item in the SETUP MENU. Fixed an issue that resulted in photographs taken using radio-controlled Advanced Wireless Lighting being overexposed if a face was detected with Auto-area AF selected for AF-area mode.

Nikon AF-S Nikkor 500mm f/5.6E PF ED VR Review

The Nikon AF-S Nikkor 500mm f/5.6E PF ED VR is the world's lightest 500mm full-frame camera lens. Nearly 40% shorter and over 50% lighter than the Nikkor 500mm f/4, the new Nikkor 500mm f/5.6E PF ED VR uses Phase Fresnel optical technology to help drastically reduce its overall size and weight, resulting in a 500m lens that remarkably is similar in size to a standard 70-200mm f/2.8 zoom
