The newest Nikon Z6/Z7 opinions

The latest Nikon Z6/Z7 reviews: → Nikon Z7 review by Ming Thein:"On an absolute scale, what we have here is not revolution but thorough evolution – much as the D3 was in its day. And as the D3, this represents a massive quantum leap of innovation for conservative Nikon; though the Z7 isn’t the second coming of sliced Jesus there are enough solid improvements over the D850, and not too many compromises (some of which are firmware-fixable). For a first try, it’s remarkable effort. Put another way: I don’t care what the fanboys say, but we’re now on the third generation of Sony A7 (fourth, if you count the A9) and they still don’t operate as smoothly.

Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 500mm f/5.6E PF ED VR lens overview

Here is a quick Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 500mm f/5.6E PF ED VR lens review by Axel Güthner:The reputation of 300mm PF lens is top, therefore I was curious about this new AF-S 500mm F5,6 PF lens. I was always looking for a long telephoto lens suitable for travel purpose. I own a 200-400mm VR II lens, but for family holidays, it’s just too big to carry all day long. The 70-300mm VR lens has not enough reach.
