Takeaways from Nikon’s Big Mirrorless Announcements Today

As the dust settles on Nikon’s huge spate of announcements this morning – two lenses, a developed lens, a new FTZ adapter, a new roadmap, and their highest-end camera ever – I’d like to put some of my thoughts to paper about the releases. Good and bad, what do these announcements say about Nikon’s future?

Nikon Z9 vs Sony A1

Now that Nikon’s Z9 has launched into the mirrorless world, the biggest question is how it stacks up against the competition. And while it’s a seriously impressive camera, the same can be said about other cameras on the market today. Perhaps the biggest competitor to the Nikon Z9 is the Sony A1.

How to Pre-Order the Nikon Z9 and the New Lenses

The Nikon Z9 has just been announced, and it’s nearly certain that it will be backordered and out of stock for a while – especially since the $5500 price is lower than expected. You can always cancel a pre-order, but if you’re even thinking about the Z9, you should order it soon. Here are the links:

Nikon D6 vs Nikon Z9

Now that Nikon has formally announced the Nikon Z9, let’s take a look at how its specifications stack up against those of the Nikon D6, the previous flagship camera in Nikon’s lineup.

Nikon Z 400mm f/2.8 Development Announcement

It wouldn’t be a Nikon announcement day without at least one development announcement! This time it’s for the long-awaited 400mm f/2.8 telephoto prime. Nikon says this lens will have a built-in 1.4x teleconverter, turning it into a 560mm f/4.

Nikon Z9 Announcement: The Peak of Nikon Mirrorless

On March 10, 2021, Nikon announced they were developing a flagship mirrorless camera. More than seven months later – after wild speculation, occasional leaks, and a handful of official teasers – the Z9 has been formally announced. And judging by what we know so far, this is a beast of a camera.

Sony A7 III vs Sony A7 IV

Now that Sony has announced the A7 IV, a lot of photographers are wondering what it brings to the table compared to the previous generation A7 III. Sony is still selling the A7 III new ($2000, compared to $2500 for the IV), which adds to the confusion.

Takeaways from the Sony A7 IV Announcement

This morning, Sony announced the newest camera in their venerable A7 series, the A7 IV. Positioned near the middle of Sony’s camera lineup, the A7 IV tells us a lot about where Sony sees itself – and even the rest of the camera industry – trending over the next few years.
