    A great full frame camera at a winning price!

    Posted by Philip McCourt on July 19, 2021

    I have owned and enjoyed many fine Nikon cameras. The Z5 is my first step into the "full frame" world and find it to be an outstanding camera. I am an advanced amateur photographer and have been involved in cameras since the late sixties. Have owned D80's, D90, D5500 in the past. Right now I own a D7200, Z50 and the Z5. I also have the FTZ adapter and find that it works nicely with my various lense's. The Z5 is now my main camera that I grab for, it has all the features that I have come to expect from Nikon. The color that it produces really impress' me. The dual card slot is what sold me on the camera. Nikon: If your reading this please make a FTZ with a motor drive for your older lens collection. Keep in mind you can still use the older lens on this camera, you just have to focus it yourself. I am extremely please with this camera and look forward to using it for many years to come. I really love the EVF in the camera, been using DSLR and SLR's for so long I find it works great. Other than no screw drive for olders lens' I have nothing negative so say about this camera.

    This is the Mercedes E class of photo gear. Nothing fancy, but solid performer. Value priced.

    Z 5 not getting rave reviews by the web pundits but also not getting slammed. I guess it depends on what your expectations are. As along time Nikon owner- First Nikon I owned was an F3 HiEyepoint in 1985. I started digital with a D40, then moved to a D90, then aD700, then a D7200. As I am not a "pro" in that sense I am a fine artist, painter who uses digital in condition with my creative practice. When the opportunity presented itself to "trade up" with the old D40, I went for it.Sold all my MF 4/3 gear and moved to the Z 5. I like the size, the files that come out of the Z5 are great, I idd not find any great learning curve. I like the wireless blue tooth but dislike the cludgey feel and interface for it. The whole trade up and purchase price was through Nikon directly and they were great throughout every step! If reading a manual is not your cup of tea I would recommend David Bush's book on the Z5. It may not have all the bells and whistles of other models but it is a solid piece of gear.

    THE PERFECT WORK HORSE!

    Posted by Demetrius McCullough on June 3, 2021

    This is coming from someone who shoots lifestyle fashion and commercial work. I completely used my Nikon D7100 to the bone ( and even that camera prove to be more than enough). I knew I needed mirrorless since everything was headed in that direction. I bought the Z5 as it's my first mirrorless body and I have no regrets in this purchase. I don't feel insecure with my camera anymore walking on to a set.Nikon did a great job with this entry priced body but still giving us a pro-level camera. I haven't switch my lens to the Z mounts but my other Nikon lens' have 0 problem with focus. I love the clarity in the screen and through the view finder. The camera profiles are true once you bring them into editing and the lightweight body is fantastic. If you have big hands like me you're going to have to use a battery grip at some point for sure. I have more to say but just use my images below as reference The photos below all rendered and editing in Capture One Pro using the NL (neutral camera) profile.

    Nikon Loyal

    Posted by Robert Robertson on May 21, 2021

    I am liking the mirrorless feature, It is quite fast. It is a high learning curve. I think it will be a great experience. It is like switching from film to digital. I bought the adaptor and am glad I can use my old lens. Over the last 65 years I have owned at least 12 Nikons. I find something I like and keep on being loyal.

    I've been using my D7100 for 8 years and very comfortable with it. But it has way too many miles on it. I have a dozen f mount lens so I also got the adapter. I can't make up my mind yet on which z lens to get I know that would really add to the changeover. I really like the eye focus when photographing moving subjects. When doing jobs for clients, I use both bodies and let the customer choose their photos. After word I see which camera they chose the most often. Usually about 75% Z5. I'm still finding small tweeks to better color and exposure.

    motor adapter would make this camera a five star hit

    Posted by Kathryn Dishong on May 12, 2021

    Two card slot! Focus features are a plus. Electronic viewfinder is the reason I chose the Z5 over another DSLR. It is missing option for choosing viewing time of image. It's a tad to long. I wish there were more picture color options or customizable film formulas like Fuji.I am only disappointed that the FTZ adapter is not motor driven, which renders many of my lenses to manual focus. In hindsight I would purchase a comparable full frame DSLR for that reason alone.NIKON PLEASE MAKE A MOTOR ADAPTER!

    Nikon Z 5 - Great Way to Start into Mirrorless

    Posted by David Perry on May 11, 2021

    Having used a D90 for about the last 10 years, it took some getting used to all the features of new camera, let alone a new mirrorless camera. However, once I got it setup, the learning curve wasn't bad at all and I have had fun taking photos and playing with the new features (well at least to me they're new features). I am using the 24-200 F4-6.3 lens and the photos look sharper and more detailed than my older lenses. By the way, if you have older lenses that you still want to use, then get the FTZ Mount. It works great and I didn't lose any of the features that I used for my older lenses, especially autofocus. I consider this a fantastic camera for the hobbyist or prosumer.

    Top Notch Stills Camera

    Posted by RONALD DYKAS on May 10, 2021

    Glad Nikon came out with a full frame camera with features at a reasonable price. Excellent menu system. Love the grip & wt. of the camera. As I'm a stills shooter & don't care about video this camera blows away the competition in this area. Image stabilization in camera is excellent & a great feature to have. Right now I am using the 24-70 f4s & 85 f1.8s which are unbelievable on this camera.
