The latest Nikon teaser video is here, and it's less silhouettes and vague talk and more direct than the previous videos. Here are our thoughts.
Certainly, the testimonials should be taken with a grain of salt, but that doesn't mean there isn't content in the video worth discussing. What's interesting to me is that nature photographer Marcel Van Oosten appears in the video and says: "It's really great I can still use all my F mount lenses on this new camera." That in itself isn't surprising; it's been expected for quite some time that Nikon would provide a Z mount to F mount adapter. What's interesting is that as he says that, he's using a Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 180-400mm f/4E TC1.4 FL ED VR, a lens that's typically deployed by sports and wildlife shooters and frequently encounters situations that are highly demanding on the autofocus system. In other words, Nikon seems to have a lot of faith in the capabilities of its adapter. It certainly wouldn't be surprising if Nikon's adapter outperformed a third-party adapter, but of course, real world results remain to be seen.
Do you notice anything intriguing in the video?
