  • 5-axis in-body Vibration Reduction

I wouldn't call this a 2nd gen body, it's still the same platform, just updated. I think they've done a very good job updating them overall, but the true 2nd gen cameras will probably show up next year.

...on a side note, this website has a few loose screws, and I don't mean the people who visit it (although you have those as well). The MY NOTIFICATIONS tab is completely dysfunctional.

Mine too. Seems to be a wider problem...

Good review and a solid camera from the looks of it. Tempting, especially when paired with new glass. I have a Z6ii and a D850. Might swap the latter for it though I’m a bit addicted to the lit buttons!

Also, seems it’s selling well.
