Nikon's full-frame mirrorless announcement has left the photography world, shall we say, nonplussed. But while many of the early reviews are quick to point out the Nikon Z7's shortcomings, Kai Wong's hands-on impressions paint a much more positive view of Nikon's exciting new platform.
Wong got his hands on the Nikon Z7 last week and while he noted the camera's disappointing single memory card slot — a source of much of the scorn surrounding Nikon's entry into full-frame mirrorless — he was much more focused on what the camera does well. Namely its fast, accurate autofocus, its ability to shoot video in 4K (externally), and its excellent build quality and ergonomics.
Furthermore, Wong points out that with a 55mm mount, the camera is well equipped for the fast glass Nikon plans to release next year, including the 58mm f/0.95 S lens. Wong also raves about the electronic viewfinder and the non-reflective, tilting 3.2-inch LCD display.
So, while many reviews have told us all the areas where the Z7 (and Z6) fall short, perhaps it's not all bad after all.
What do you think? Does Wong's review make you more likely to purchase a Z7, or are its failings, such as the single memory card slot, too much for Nikon to earn your money? Drop a comment below and let us know if you'll be diving into full-frame mirrorless with Nikon.
