Nikon ZF...buying it?
The Nikon ZF looks like an amazing camera...I'm shocked it's only 2K. Are you thinking of getting it?
Most probably. It looks like it's a kind of retro Z6 III with Z8 AF... so the perfect camera to me.
No, but it does make me want to see what they have planned for a Z6iii (same thing, different form factor?) or a Z7iii.
I'd really like a Z8 with the IBIS improvements and pixel shift, but that probably is going to have to wait for a Z8ii, so another couple years out.
Yes,but, would like to read Spencer's review first 😊 I already have z fc and Nikon D7200
Waiting for the mirrorless D500.
Yes - as soon as they bring a silver edition. 😉
It's stupid, I know, but to be honest I would buy mostly out of nostalgia anyway...
I really like the retro design but I wish they had left the joystick on the back of the camera for AF sensor selection instead of making the touchscreen the only manual selection option.
On occasions where it's necessary to manually select the AF sensor, the joystick works well with the AF-on + AF-mode feature, which is something that I also wish they would put on bodies other than the Z8 and Z9.
It doesn't appear that Nikon is making a grip for this camera.
That could seriously impact the ergonomics and battery life for some people.
No, I don't get along with the ergonomics of such cameras. I have owned a Fuji X-T1; didn't get along with it. Sold it and much later tried an X-T30; same story, didn't get along with the ergonomic. These are beatiful cameras but just not for me.
I also believe that Nikon made a mistake by investing resources in the Zf. There is a Zfc which would work just fine for over 99% of the Zf buyers. I own a Z50 which has the same sensor as the Zfc and it produces fantastic images. I don't get the point why there is a need for a fullframe version of the Zfc. I print up to A3+ and can't tell the difference between a D850 image and a Z50 image in this size.
@delange I think that some people just prefer the FX frame.
I agree that the IQ of the APS-C sensor is more than adequate for most people, but there are those that want (or arguably need) more.
To each their own.
Challenging wheels, buttons, dials combination. But very satisfied with IQ, autofocus, ISO performance and handling. The latter was not foreseen.
24MP is fine. Had a Z7ii, which made me obsessively take care of perfect focus. With the Zf I feel relieved. Autofocus is reliable. I do much more "focus" on composition or the interaction with the person I shoot.
Zf's ergonomics are not working well for me. I am still hanging on to my Df though...
