the n-photo team’s z system thoughts

Adam WaringEditorThe electronic viewfinder takes getting used to, but once you do, a DSLR’s flip-up mechanical mirror assembly seems archaic!adam.waring@futurenet.comJason Parnell-BrookesTechnique editorMy camera bag weighs between 15-20kg by the time I’m kitted up with my DSLRs and lenses. I can’t wait to slim down with the mirrorless camera.jason.parnell-brookes@futurenet.comBen AndrewsLab managerThe Z-mount is a bold move from Nikon, but it seems to have paid off, as image quality from the 35mm and 24-70mm S-series lenses is phenomenal.ben.andrews@futurenet.comMatthew RichardsTechnique writerI’ll be interested to see how the electronic viewfinder works.

101 things you need to know about nikon's new z system

Long-rumoured, much anticipated, and latterly teased by the company itself before the big reveal, Nikon’s new mirrorless Z system is here.The arrival brings Nikon more or less in line with its mirrorless competitors, whose own mirrorless systems are now fairly established. While the range begins with two camera bodies, namely the Z7 and the Z6, and three lenses, more is promised over the upcoming years to keep Nikon users excited.The fact that these two primary models are designed around FXformat (full-frame) sensors should also make the transition for enthusiast and professional users used to this format quite seamless.
