Nikon has officially announced their new mirrorless lineup of Z-series cameras and lenses. With two new cameras, the Z7 and Z6, and three new lenses with a brand new mount, the Z-series is the full-frame mirrorless from Nikon that we’ve been waiting for.
The Z7 carries the same backlit sensor as the D850 for amazing image quality at 45.7MP. With 493 autofocus points covering approximately 90% of the frame, the Z7 combines the power of a high-end Nikon camera in a more compact package that is 26% lighter than the D850, yet still maintains outstanding handling and balance.
The Z6 is a low-light, incredibly versatile camera incorporating a 24.5MP sensor and native ISO up to 51,200. It also boasts continuous shooting up to 12fps and 273 autofocus points. Both cameras are available body only, or kitted with the new 24-70mm f/4S lens.
Both cameras feature in-body 5-axis image stabilization, 4K UHD video with a 10-bit N-log profile, a brand new Expeed 6 imaging processor, 3.2” touch screen and a fully weather-sealed body. The new Z-mount incorporates a 65% shorter flange distance and a 17% larger internal diameter than Nikon’s F-mount, the largest of any full-frame mount available today.
Nikon has also announced three brand new Z-mount lenses: a 35mm f/1.8S, a 50mm f/1.8S and a 24-70mm f4S. Also announced is development of a Z-mount 58mm f/0.95 S Noct, the largest-aperture Nikkor lens ever.
Nikon has also announced the new FTZ mount adapter, which enables the uninhibited use of over 90 F-mount lenses on the new system. With absolutely no loss of image quality or speed, the adapter also means that every compatible lens will benefit from the in-body Vibration Reduction, and lenses already equipped with VR will then become stabilized on 3-axes.
We are incredibly excited to announce that we will have a pre-production demo of the brand new Z7 camera, as well as the 24-70mm f/4 and 35mm f1.8 lenses in the Nikon booth at our F22 Anniversary Event and Sale. Be sure to come by and be one of the first to check out this game-changer for Nikon.
