    From MFT to Z5

    Posted by David Delgado on December 21, 2023

    Changing over from Micro Four Thirds to Full Frame Mirrorless was easy transition. Just love the bright viewfinder, easy menu and most importantly the brilliant color quality especially with the 50 mm F 2.8 S lens. Please do not call this entry level full Frame Mirrorless. This is my gear for professional event and wedding photography. At this moment cant yet let go completely of my MFT Camera and lenses. GO Z5!!!!

    IF you love stills this camera is it

    Posted by Gregory Varano on November 26, 2023

    I've been a Nikon user for over 45 years. The Z5 is the perfect camera for those who put emphasis more towards still images rather than video. Two SD II card slots are a welcome, The conductivity with Blue Tooth and WIFI are great, the ability to connect to PC is what I need as a professional, a feature my D850's don't have! I bought the Z5 as a travel camera and paired it with the Z 50mm F1.8 along with the Z 28mm f2.8. The size of the gear make it a pleasure for more casual assignments where I don't need the larger D bodies and lenses. What I would love to see is a better card door mechanism, it opens to easy if your not careful pulling out of a messenger bag. The Autofocus is still slow in tracking but better than the Z6 and Z7. The Z5 is labelled as an entry level, it's not entry level by any means. Best image quality and value in 35mm full frame format mirrorless.

    Great for a beginner or a backup camera.

    Great as a Z6ii back-up. Excellent using your Z primes. It is a beast of an existing light camera. What is not to like?

    Pleasantly surprised!

    Posted by Christopher Huffer on November 21, 2023

    Bought this as a backup to my D850, and as a walk around camera, to save the D850 shutter for more important work. Using the Z 24-200 as my main lens, but got the FTZ II to use my F lenses if needed. It is a bit of a culture shock to use the digital view finder, but it is growing on me. I am old school, so I rarely use the rear screen for still shots. Focus is quick, and VR does a good job. Battery held up better than the reviews, and specs, which could be that I use the view finder, and not the back screen. Will I completely move to mirrorless…no, but having a light weight option, as a backup is nice.

    Good camera, which can be much better.

    Posted by Frankie Diaz on September 12, 2023

    It is a good camera that could be excellent or better camera than it is. I switched from the Fijifilm system (X-T3 and X-T4) to Nikon Z5 and several prime lenses. I love the image quality, I think it's exceptional. But I'm worried about firmware support since we know what the Xpeed 6 processor can achieve and I don't see any updates and support for this camera body and I'm starting to worry. I don't complain about the image quality. But yes, from the autofocus and af speed is to slow. Good camera, but it can be much better.

    Great first impressions; great initial step up from DX to FX format.

    Posted by STANLEY ROGACKI on September 2, 2023

    I have just received my Z5, so this review is based on first impressions, and they are all good. I've been a user of Nikon digital cameras for more than ten years. After owning several DX format DSLRs, I bought a Z50 for travel and was impressed with the smaller size and weight of the mirrorless format. I have long considered buying a FX format camera and purchased the Z5 with 24-200mm lens. This camera-lens combination is nearly identical in size and weight to my old D7100 with 18-140mm zoom. The build quality and control placement is excellent; the camera fits comfortably in the hands and operates in a way that is familiar and intuitive for a Nikon user. The vibration reduction is impressive; hand held shots are possible at very low shutter speeds. I'll keep my Z50 for travel, but when I can handle the bigger size and want FX format quality, I know the Z5 will deliver. I'm looking forward to many fine photos from this camera. Oh, and the big Z-mount is just fantastic! If you've ever considered stepping up to FX format, especially from a DSLR, this is the camera for you.

    Bravo Z5!

    Posted by Romel Anda on August 26, 2023

    Quite impressed with the Z5. I have had mirrorless cameras before, but this is my first full frame camera. I wanted to take my photography to the next level and after taking photos with only my smartphone, I am blown away with the easy of use as well as the controls I can have when taking photos on the Z5. I would definitely recommend this to anyone wanting to move to full frame photography. I must note, if taking 4k videos is a high priority, I would recommend either the Z6 or Z7. I take mainly stills, so this is perfect for me. Also, the 1080p video quality is quite good. The Z5 is 5 out of 5 stars for me.
