    Wonderful choice!

    Posted by Jennifer Peoples on August 26, 2022

    I love this camera! Bought the Z5 after months of research. My old camera was nine year old Canon PowerShot. I have no complaints about this camera at all!! None! There is nothing about the Z5 that is an, “I wish…” it is perfect for me! I bought it at Hunt’s in Manchester, NH two months ago. It was very easy to learn and my skills have improved. I got the 24-200 mm lens and am saving up for the 400mm lens for wildlife photography. Very happy with my purchase.

    Want to like it, but...!

    Posted by Frank Rowe on August 12, 2022

    Going back to SLR Film days, and having used Nikon for a long time, a D7200 most recently, i wanted to like the Z-5. I purchased it with great expectations, based on all the reviews. My first disappointment was flash photography. My SB-700 had be a workhorse on my D7200. Not so much on the Z-5. Without flash I lost some shots in Alaska due the auto-focus system and and others due to metering system in low light situations. In fairness, I did get some good ones, but in some cases it didn't out perform my iPhone 13 Pro Max.Regretting the $2K investment since I'm going back to my D7200 for important photography

    Nikon fan since '77

    Posted by Wayne Tibble on May 31, 2022

    Avid enthusiast having owned EM,Fe,F2, F3,and D50,70,90,200,300,500,600,610,700,750,800, and still have D850. Have had D3,D4 and still have FE , D4s, z7,z50. And assortment of old Ai and Ai s lenses along with 8 z mount lenses. The z7 is being sold to finance a z9. Love the compact size of the z5, when paired with z 28-75 or Sigma Art 50 f1.4 or Tokina Opera 16-28 f2.8 it really excel's. It is also is capable video unit ,I have it rigged with Atmos Ninja Flame. Really was reluctant to give in to mirror less. But I still use my 850 alot.

    Z 5 24-50MM Kit

    Posted by L Green on May 31, 2022

    I'm not sure how well the Z 5 will work because my kit didn't include the required MH-25a battery charger to charge the battery. Luckily the battery has 57% of its power, but I'm reluctant to use it for anything not essential. (The camera is for our school's Yearbook program.) I've had one email in response informing me I emailed the wrong people (support rather than store) and am waiting for a response to my second email. The Nikon store has been a very frustrating shopping experience for me.

    Great Camera

    I wanted to get a back up to my Z6, so I selected Z5 and I am very happy with the Z5 performance which is very similar to Z6.

    I picked up a Z5 at the start of the week and absolutely love it. I think it compares very nicely to my D750 (which I love). I have tried it with both the 24-50 kit lens and with my older 35, 50, 60, and 85mm lenses via the adapter and it produces super, clear images. The bokeh is decent but perhaps not as “natural” looking as with the D750, but it’s small issue in the scheme of things. I will probably use this as a street/macro camera. Try one, you will be impressed!

    Great camera with some concern

    Posted by Imran Imthiyas on May 5, 2022

    Great camera. However I would say if Nikon fix evf and lcd noise issue in low light it would be helpful. We would request you to fix in upcoming firmware update.

    Z 5

    Posted by Roberto on March 9, 2022

    I wanted to upgrade to mirror less cameras and after looking at many systems and cameras models I decided to get the Nikon Z 5, I wanted to focus on photography capabilities and the full frame. I have been using it for a couple of months and I love it great details, and plenty of megapixels,
    I highly recommend it!!!

    Nikon Z5

    Posted by slickscream on December 2, 2021

    This is an amazing camera for a photographer. I don't use it for video, so the large crop factor does not affect my rating.

    It produces amazing quality whether I am using z-mount or adapted f-mount lenses. The jpeg's it produces are stunning. The battery life is way better than advertised.
    All in all I couldn't recommend the Z5 enough, I am very pleased with it.
