    WOW!!! A compact, light-weight mirrorless with a sophisticated focusing system, speedy frame rate and spectacular sensor - when coupled with a Nikkor telephoto, it just might be the perfect camera for wildlife!

    Great Camera!

    Such a fantastic camera! I use it for birding and it is absolutely wonderful. I love the bird eye focus and the ability to change the focus area box to a size and shape you want. The pictures are color rich beautiful. Paired with my Nikon 500pf, it’s my favorite combo.

    Nikon Z8 Camera

    Posted by JOHN PENNOYER on July 2, 2023

    Over many years my Nikon cameras have been: FE, FE2, N90, F100, D100, D200, D300. D800, D850, and now the Z8. My D850 is now my backup camera, and no question this is the best Nikon I have owned and have taken probably 3000+ images in just 4 weeks in all sorts of ambient light and weather situations and many images handheld out of my kayak! I also use the Nikon Vertical battery grip and the two batteries is a bonus for extra power to increase shooting time. A real pain to have to change batteries when in kayak plus when handholding going from horizontal to vertical shooting is a breeze.

    I purchased a Nikon D7100 nine years ago when I retired, and I enrolled in a local beginning photography course. I later owned a D750 and a Z6ii, but I was always waiting for the “D850 replacement” to come along. Having just purchased the Z8, it seems a bit magic! My images are better and I find that I have more confidence when I shoot with this camera. The improved image stabilization and increased image quality make me want to shoot every chance I get. It truly is magic.

    Nikon Z8

    Coming from the very capable D850 the Z8 excels in every category. Very impressed with the autofocus and tracking capabilities. The Nikon D850-500pf -TC 14E lll was a bit slow to focus with birds in flight, with the Z8 that is not the case at all as I am very impressed with that combo.

    Nikon Z8

    Posted by Patrick Stone on June 29, 2023

    Very impressive camera - very fast auto-focus - solid - images are excellentMy only concern would be that : if there is to be a recall on a camera and I have it registered with Nikon why was I not sent a notification - you have my email - just trying to find the information about the recall was not very user friendly. Also no email about when the camera is to be sent in - 1 week and waiting

    Love it

    Posted by DAVID JOHNSON on June 29, 2023

    Great camera. I have been a Nikon shooter since 1968. I have moved to almost totally mirrorless with a Z9 and now the Z8. I shoot a lot of high school sports. I missed a couple of shots on my first baseball game because focus tracking went the wrong way. I still like the result. Nothing to dislike about it.

    Best Nikon camera I have owned.

    Posted by H E on June 28, 2023

    After years of using Nikon cameras, from film cameras to the D750, Z6II... This is by far the best one I have used. It makes getting the shot so much easier. Great autofocus, perfect size and weight for me and the speed is amazing. I love it.
