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.

New reports indicate that the Nikon D850 sensor (IMX309AQJ) is made by Sony

ChipMod took a Nikon D850 camera apart and came to the conclusion that the sensor inside is made by Sony ( Google translation ): In an email, ChipMod informed  me that they analyzed the sensor and the bonding pattern together with other characteristics are typical for the way Sony manufactures sensors. They also shared with me that Nikon has started to use a new sensor IC package – AQJ (metal frame with mounting holes on the sensor)
