    Incredible.

    Posted by MDM on October 5, 2021

    I am blown away by the clarity and color reproduction of this camera. I purchased it today along with the Z 50 1.8 S and I am so happy with this combination so far. Granted I have only been around the house taking pics of just about everything and I am very impressed! Can't wait to test it more extensively.I also own the D500 and that too is great. I haven't been disappointed with Nikon yet. Did I mention I am very happy with the purchase of the Z7 II!!!

    What a gem! The Nikon Z 7II renders images that blow your socks off and is a kick-in-the-pants to use. Just delightful.

    All brands feature bragging points that surpass the competition. One can go nuts comparing brands tit for tat when deciding on a new camera so I limited my list of considerations to five. 1) Does it render acute images with superior colors and tones? 2) Does its stability system allow me to use it hand-held? 3) Does it auto-focus accurately and reliably? 4) Does the exposure system measure light quantity and color temperature correctly? 5) Can I use my pre-AI and my G series Nikkors?So let’s look at why I chose a Nikon camera. Dating back to my first SLR in 1964, a Nikkomat, Nikons have brought me joy recording my own life’s journey along with the faces of many others who posed in front of them. I have not been disappointed, even with years of use and untold numbers of shutter actuations on each Nikon I have owned. And I now have a practical selection of fine Nikkors that deliver what I ask them to. Compared with Canon and Sony cameras I have had, Nikons + Nikkors always rendered colors and tones, especially skin tones, more pleasing to my eye. For me, the image a camera renders is the overriding selection criterion. No one, not even the photographer, looking at a photograph five years after its making is going to swoon over the staccato pace of shutter cycles or the camera’s Johnny-be-quick acquisition of eye focus. Though there is always color and tone input from the lens, that used to be the province of film manufacturers. Today, however, it is the camera makers’ software that defines those critical inputs. It is also the manufacturer’s software that measures light intensity and color temperature. For my preferences, Nikon and Nikkors are tops. I have no reason to jump ship to another brand. As I approach seventy years of handling cameras and taking all manner of photographs, from point and shoot candids to electron micrographs of cellular substructures, the Z 7II tops the bunch for joy of use. With age setting in I can no longer hand-hold my D700 of twelve years and I sorely miss the freedom and dexterity of composition that doing so provides. Thus the driving force for me to look for a new camera was to once again enjoy hand-held photography. Bless the Nikon engineers who developed the superb stabilization capability of the Z 7II. When using this camera, I feel exuberant. I am once again a young boy of ten with my new birthday Brownie. As then, when I pick up my new camera today, everything calls out to have its picture taken.Coupled with a Nikkor Z 50mm f/1.2 S, the Z 7II surpasses my pre-purchase expectations. How rich the colors it renders at ISO 64! Blows me away. Ergonomic? The Z 7II’s fit feels like the handshake of an old friend. It is comfortable, solid, and assuring that what I am holding will return my trust. Stable? Rock on! With the Z 7II I can hand hold 1/50 second shots with impunity and have even managed some sharp ones at 1/20 second. I also am able to hand-hold my 70-200 f/2.8 G with the FTZ. That makes me happy.Excluding auto eye focus, in my experience the Z 7II focuses quickly and accurately. However, auto eye focus (both human and pets) sometimes lags or can be altogether frustrating. It seems to have unpredictable difficulty focusing on profile view and does not recognize at all an eye in profile if the person is wearing a mask. I reverted to manual mode (not to be confused with manual focus of the lens) on many occasions. In manual mode focus is spot on every time. Auto focus mode is quick, highly accurate, and reliable as well, but that mode gives no control over what the focal point(s) cover.True to its history, Nikon made sure old Nikkors are compatible with its Z cameras. Back in 1978 I went through Nikon’s introduction of AI and was pleased then that Nikon developed a way to convert old Nikkors for use on its new cameras. And now with the FTZ adapter I can still use my pre-AI lenses and my G series Nikkors. I am most thankful the Z 7II and an FTZ allow me to keep using my all-time favorite portrait lens, a Nikkor 105mm f/2.5 K, that I bought in 1976.The catalog of optical and electronic enhancements available for today’s cameras and lenses is like the offerings of an oversized bowl of M&Ms: so many desirable thingies. I remember attending a Nikon workshop in 1978 back when automatic film advance and breakthroughs in in-camera exposure meters were the talk of the town. A classmate asked the instructor what the future holds for new developments in cameras. The reply was one word, “Electronics.” And so it has been. Today, mirrorless cameras bring new electronic wonders plus optical advances not previously possible. Thus two other major reasons for me to buy a Z 7II are to have fun with all the menu items that its electronics provide and to also benefit from the superb optics of the S line Z Nikkors.

    Excellent...can't wait for more Autofocus improvements

    Posted by Jeffrey w Jackson on June 23, 2021

    I chose the Z7II to supplement my D850 and D500. I shoot birds, wildlife, travel, street photography...the Z7Ii works wonderfully with all types...with an exception for birds in flight...I own several Z7ii bodies as I travel to Africa with multiple lenses...the Z7ii paired with the Mirrorless 24-70 or 70-200mm works great. I also use Zeiss Otus lenses, which work well with the Z7ii and the adapter...The only reason I don't give this 5 stars is the camera still lacks in its Auto Focus of birds in flight. I am a convert to mirrorless but use it to supplement my D500 and D850.

    Nikon is the best

    Posted by Stephan Goettlicher on January 14, 2021

    And I don't even have a Z7II, but I own a Nikon D-850 with great prime lenses for 3+ years now and I'm still amazed by the dynamic range and possibilities that I have with this camera and sensor combination... I can only imagine this in the Z body and updated, it must give you medium format and movie capabilities in a small mirrorless body!I love Nikon and all their glass I have used for the past 25 years! Kudos!

    A step UP!

    Posted by John Hammerly on December 26, 2020

    Less than 72 hours into my Z7ii, but so far it is amazing. I have been shooting a Z6 since 2018. In many ways, the Z7ii is both familiar and far superior. This Z7ii was my 70th birthday present and the first picture was the ornaments from my daughter and son-in-law to commemorate the birth of my first grandchild this year on my brithday.

    Great Camera Great Value

    Posted by Johnnie Bejarano on December 25, 2020

    Absolutely the best value, crisp sharpness in the Z lenses, and superb manufacturing quality. I didn't like waiting two months for it, but glad that I did. I'm looking forward to expanding my Z lens collection. This is a great camera!Nikon Enthusiast.
