I have the Z6, and the Z5 I had was not even close in the autofocus department. @ UncoyDP - the question was if you preferred adapted lenses and adaptors for your F-mount DSLR? The adapter will bring full autofocus, aperture control and EXIF data transfer capabilities to Pentax K-mount lenses when used on select Sony E-mount camera systems. It’s the low-light autofocus reliability that we need to really scrutinize! The Z lenses are clearly not any more slow focusing than their Sony or Canon counterparts. The Z5 is far superior to the A7R II in everything but resolution, but if your needs are mostly for subjects that don't move, it's pretty compelling. The title said "Best value stills oriented full framer". But there are many paid job not requiring AF. Most can't tell the difference between 42MP and 24 MP, esp those interested in a lower priced more entry level FF. They should also offer a 70-300mm equivalent to the FX lens. A7R II Review - Focus "Cons" (see previous comment for the "Pros"). Depending on what lenses you need, you might match or beat the Z5 kit's value proposition with a more expensive body from another maker that has more price-competitive lens options. I agree with mkowalski. Of course I know the Z6 exists. Don't newcomers to ilc photography want to be able to take great video? The Z5 is, for the most part, fun and exciting to shoot with. This sensor is better than the one of the D3x... that was a real MF digital back killer.... with which I have made breathtaking A1 prints. You can see in my gear list what I had. As a nightscape & time-lapse photographer, for this one feature alone I would not only choose the Z5 over the Z6, but I would even sell a Z6 if I owned one and get a Z5 instead! Indeed -- the Z-mount lenses are great. I'm thinking here of Sony and third-party f1.8 & f1.4 primes. Great hybrid performance. Okay, let’s cut right to the chase: The Nikon Z5 is very, very similar in every way to the Nikon Z6, physically speaking. We just got our hands on the Nikon Z5, and one of the very first things we did was compare it against its nearest sibling, the slightly older Nikon Z6. I'm glad you're admitting that you're a troll. Toilet Roll's gear is stated as Fujifilm and Canon. What follows are the headiest products of 2020, the ones photographers really want. Its impossible to recommend this camera to anyone just because Z6 is still available and superior and price difference is negligible. I'm a fan of Nikon and wanting to upgrade from my D7000. Most of these differences will not impact real world still photography. Call us skeptical, but such are the lives of YouTube stars. I would have happily traded in the dual card slots and EVF for uncropped 4K video, but I guess to Nikon that would still be encroaching on the Z6. * Low light continuous AF capability matches or exceeds DSLRs with fast primes. I thought Nikon was prioritizing bringing their cameras' video tech up to date. Check the fireman. In low light the EVF has significant line banding and noise. The Laowa 15mm F4.5 Zero-D Shift lens lets you shift perspective without moving the camera, correct for converging lines and more. Image quality is spectacular. What review?The only one I found was just spec and current price comparison.Mind to leave here a link? I previously owned an RP and still own Canon cameras and have no qualms about going back, I hold no loyalty to any brands. Find out how the Olympus M.Zuiko 12-100mm F4 Pro does as a travel companion on a trip to Oz. Any beginner, serious, or even professional photographer who is coming from another camera that is at least 5 years old will be truly impressed by what the Z5 offers. Both have hybrid AF systems and the A7R II actually has more points than the Z5. How do you know? Its not good at all. That noise reduction (plus cheating half a stop on ISO) is why Fuji seems to be a full stop better in high ISO than other APS-C cameras. You can't compare Cooper (Fuji) to Landcruiser (Z6). Yet the sensor of the Rp is nowhere close to that of the D3x. At higher ISOs, default JPEG noise reduction$(document).ready(function() { $("#icl-5215--1116096304").click(function() { ImageComparisonWidgetLink(5215); }); }) is on the aggressive side, blurring away far more detail than the Sony a7 III and even the Z6. If what you want is good image quality for a low price it seems like it'll do that. ISO Invariance test | Exposure Latitude test. So, it won my money. The f1.8 range isn’t super compact but they are light and overall still the most compact to reach that level of quality since you typically need to use f1.4 or f1.2 lenses in Sony/Canon line up if you need the best possible quality. Just saying that the Z5 doesn't move me in the mirrorless direction. The Z6 is a credible alternative while stock lasts. Look at the DPR Comparison Tool. NinjaFlyer, a big mount doesn't mean big heavy glass. With a 1.8x squeeze, the lens produces a more pronounced anamorphic effect than the 1.33x lenses offered by Sirui, albeit at a much higher cost. What lenses do you have on the RP? Roqueiroz and MDLR both inserted Sony references. Slight differences in sharpening between it and the D750$(document).ready(function() { $("#icl-5207--892062156").click(function() { ImageComparisonWidgetLink(5207); }); }) (which likely uses the same generation sensor) likely come down to lens used: the Z 50mm F1.8 S in particular is crazy sharp. I feel some cognitive dissonance when I see a Gold Award camera receiving 89 points. The Z6 is much better than the Z5, IMHO the Z5 does not deserve the DPR Gold award. First, the Z5 has quite a bit of image blackout when taking a picture, so if you want to “spray and pray” at the relatively modest 4.5 FPS, (the Z6 has 12 FPS, by comparison) …you’ll struggle to track very fast subjects in the viewfinder or on the rear LCD. What's holding the sales are the lenses, I think: they are too much expensive for a lot of enthusiast and are not "pro" enough for other people. Doesn't that affect the result? While it certainly won't be me that puts down Canon for their colors, I've found no painterly effect at ISO 800 in Fuji's raws. The AF actually hindered my shooting and I am talking about using a single point in single-shot mode. The review was done with early firmware. The Nikon Z5 is capable of excellent image quality whether shooting Raw or JPEG. [Related Reading: Nikon D780 Review – The Best DSLR, In A Mirrorless World]. This high-speed scenario is really the only thing we can find that might incline a photographer to decide against the Z5. Do the results look a little off to you at the higher ISOs? By the way, the only advantage the Sony A7C might have over the Nikon Z6, really, is likely to be the high-speed action and/or low-light autofocus capability. The Nikon kit lens for the Z5 is the worst I've seen for any full frame - only 24mm @ F4 to 50mm @ F6.3 ! @refusenik, ok I've found $90 23GB XQD on amazon vs ~$20 for SD UHS. Video is not an advantage of mirrorless. The answer is NO. So sure if someone wants a 5 year old camera that doesn't include all of the improvements that Sony came to introduce later, then the a7RII is there. It has great handling, good shooting speeds and autofocus, nice image quality … Perhaps you should comment on what the person actually wrote, instead of what you think they might of said ? All of them will produce wonderful files. If not, and if you’re good with Nikon Z lens lineup or have G/E lenses, would go with the Z5. Canon's first FF mirrorless has one slot. We could have it on demand, drive-through with results sent electronically. That's the first step towards your recovery. Canon RP is currently the cheapest, but then IQ is compromised with limited DR. Top Intro Compatible Lenses Incompatible Lenses Specifications The Nikon FTZ is a lens mount adapter that lets us use any F-Mount Nikon SLR or DSLR lens with varying extents of usefulness on Nikon's full-frame mirrorless cameras. When Nikon first switched from their legendary 3D focus tracking in the DSLR realm to the mirrorless Z-mount with autofocus being done on the image sensor, “Focus Tracking” was a little frustrating to work with: you had to hit the OK button on the rear of the camera to activate and de-activate it. The 300D was the 1st cheapskate DSLR for the Masses. No need to take my word for it - read the 6,000+ comments he has written, most of them in just the past few months! But many F-mount lenses are also very good. It’s making much better images for me. In short, unlike the Z5 versus Z6, the EOS RP feels more like a Rebel-style beginner camera, not a full-frame 5-series camera. The Nikon Z5 can be seen almost a hybrid of the Z50 and Z6. ... In-Camera Image Stabilization. On the contrary, more people seem to be in a selling mode. To our surprise, the Z5 mostly held onto even fast-moving subjects just fine, even with the constraint of a rather dark f/6.3 aperture! (Well, you can’t “feel” the dual SD slots, but you know they’re there, giving you more peace of mind than any other camera in its price range!). The issue is that with ISO above 200, skin texture in Fuji files degenerate into a slight watercolour effect very fast. @meoreI have Z6 and native AF-S or AFP lenses on Z perform better than even on native F mount. Nikon Z5 VS Z6 | Image Quality & Autofocus Tests, Copyright 2019 SLR Lounge. We photo geeks love our acronyms, so how 'bout some new ones standing for "stills-oriented" or "video-oriented" camera engineering emphasis? Shoot this at ISO 100, ISO 400 and ISO 800. And, unlike the Z6, the phase detection pixels seem to have been perfectly corrected for: there's no striping even in the deepest shadows. All the f/1.8 primes are reputedly extremely sharp as well. Not even close. It was €70/head. Looking also at the remarkable amount of detail present in the camera man, for having very little light on him. We took a look at the field and selected the Panasonic S1H and GH5 as the best cameras for serious videographers. By comparison, Canon’s EOS RP was just $100 cheaper than the Z5, at an MSRP of ~$1,300 originally, but in order to achieve that price point, Canon decided to go with just one SD memory card slot, a low-capacity “compact camera” battery, and no in-body stabilization. It also features nearly 150 wonderful images from past Olympics games. What in particular is wrong with it? If that were true Nikon probably wouldn't be hooking everyone up with $50 FTZ adapters... What's wrong with FTZ adapters? I haven't tested it myself, yes, because, well, I'm not very interested in that particular experience. I just use the LCD for menu and reviewing images. Maybe they could have made more money if they omitted the touch bar too. I'll take your opinion to the bank. The Nikon Z5 is the first Nikon to feature Animal AF out of the box, but it works best if your furry subjects are relatively static. If you look at our ISO Invariance test, you can see that using a low ISO in low light conditions and brightening it, leaves little meaningful difference in the outcome compared to using a high ISO in the first place. For the Sony A7 III be ready to shell out a lot of money, since it's NOT an entry level camera. The 1M dot screens are used on lots of Nikons and more than capable. Switching to native lenses on my Z6 has been a revelation over my previous lenses, and especially my previous lenses with the D750. All this bleating about "insanely good" makes you sound like a Nikon fanperson or someone in their pay. Still, the D750 is a good starting point for image quality. Moreover, throughout the scene, the Z5 captures detail$(document).ready(function() { $("#icl-5208--1052973566").click(function() { ImageComparisonWidgetLink(5208); }); }) on par with the best in the segment. theres nought wrong with that sensor...about the best dynamic range to date. "THOUGHTS" IS PAID TO POST PRO-CANON AND ANTI-SONY PROPAGANDA. An 'entry level' FF with dual card slots at that price? With that said, let’s get down to the nitty-gritty test results: The Nikon Z5’s autofocus is good enough to consistently nail focus the majority of the time, (say, anywhere from 7/10 to 9/10 of photos) at low light levels of an exposure value of 1/80 sec, f/1.8, and ISO 6400.  This means it is more than able to shoot in most low light levels where you might be hand-holding and using autofocus, as opposed to putting the camera on a tripod and focusing manually. So, what do you expect? A great mirrorless video camera from Nikon? For a landscape shooter on a budget, it could be just the thing. Wow, this mantra of "adapted lenses are bad" is tedious. It's not a bad camera, really. But, when I buy a wine listed as a good value in Wine Spectator, I look for those that score at least 90 with a price tag under $25. With its totally silent electronic shutter and compact, unassuming size, yet robust build quality and intuitive controls, the Nikon Z5 makes a perfect casual/serious all-around camera, for literally everything from travel photography and cityscapes to your family vacations or candid street photography. We've combed through the options and selected our two favorite cameras in this class. The A7R II was from September, 2015 and state of the art when launched, so wouldn’t call it a relic - compared to a Z5. You just got a clear demonstration that the prices are within 100 US$ and don’t forget that most of these Nikon lenses are significantly better than the Sony equivalents. Both the Canon R5 and the Z5 are mirrorless interchangeable lens cameras that are equipped with a full frame sensor. If f/4 is enough aperture it is small, light, and very good optically. Photokina has announced via a press release that after 70 years of shows in Cologne, Germany, it will be indefinitely suspended due to 'decreases in the imaging market’ that have ‘force[d] a hard cut.’. 273-point* 1 AF system offering accurate focus across 90% of the frame both horizontally and vertically while allowing touch AF during live view. Geez, can we all grow up and acknowledge that each of the major manufacturers produce great cameras, but in individual categories, some are a little better than others. Nikon, unfortunately, is staying tight-lipped about user sensor cleaning and recommending that a dirty sensor be returned to them for cleaning. The A7R II has a broad range of modern AF options, including Eye and Face tracking with 399 on-sensor Phase Detection points. They're just a way of Nikon saying "We made a ton of F-mount lenses; they're great, they're out there, and you can use them on a Zx without trouble.". Here is the list of Nikon Z5 features that are inferior to the older but slightly more expensive Z6: Z5: Six year-old non-BSI sensor, ISO range 50-102400Z6: Modern BSI sensor ISO range 50-204800, Z5: LCD screen 1 million dotsZ6: LCD screen 2 million dots, Z5: Massive 1.7x 4K video cropZ6: No video crop, Z5: Plastic back and baseZ6: Magnesium alloy. "Absolutely no use for mid ISO color photography?". I would get the video without having to go mirrorless. But it's still very much Money for a Camera, into absolute terms. I said months ago that as long it shoots HD video competitive with costlier cameras it'd meet my needs. * Lock-on AF still remains unpredictable / unreliable. Nikon always includes these in lower bodies. While they were out shooting their video about Sigma's new lenses, Chris and Jordan filled up a memory card with photos from the 35mm F2 DG DN using Panasonic bodies. With a software upgrade the A7R II should do fine against the Z5. Reducing the exposure increases the noisiness of the shadows, but the camera isn't adding any significant noise to the shadows, as you can see in our comparison. Nikon opted to use their conventional CMOS sensor with this camera, rather than implementing the Backside Illumination (BSI) structure found in the higher-end Z6. Buy Nikon Z5 Mirrorless Digital Camera (Z 5 camera Body) features 24.3MP FX-Format CMOS Sensor, EXPEED 6 Image Processor. I researched and changed settings to try and fix but it was always the same even in great light. Welcome to the pipe and slippers FF. The Z6 was from August, 2018 and it wasn’t quite state of the art when announced. Cropped 4K video, and 4.5fps shooting. When I found myself not noticing a difference between a Z6 (with the latest firmware) …and then contemplating, “I wonder how the Z5 compares against the Sony a9 II?” …I knew Nikon had done something right! Sometimes Nikon’s are more expensive and other times Sony’s are more expensive. Except for the D780 which people say is good because Nikon borrowed its video from the Z6. So if you’ve ever picked up a Z6 and thought that it felt comfortable and was a generally well-made camera, (we sure think so!) Enjoy the new comments above. Having said that, note that we were specifically referring to PHOTOGRAPHERS just now. The new Laowa 15mm F4.5 Shift lens lets you go wide with perspective control. ), Want to see what a HUGE difference a “correct” exposure can make, at ISO 12800? Still weather sealed the same. Thanks! Slow focus? You could get a Z50 with 11 fps and better sensor than the d7000. Seconding the folks praising the 24-70. Being able to lock focus in challenging conditions is one thing, and Nikon has already been doing well in that regard, thanks to numerous firmware updates provided for the Z6 and Z7 over the last two years. By comparison, the Nikon Z6 when using the latest firmware update gives about the exact same results. So why is Technical Editor Richard Butler feeling so much more positive about the new camera than he was about its APS-C sibling? Feels like the Panasonic S5 is much more value for for the money, AND the same price, at least in Sweden. Want a spoiler? Honestly, though? Combining a 37MP full-frame sensor, minimalist controls and Lightroom Mobile built in, it's a refreshing – if a bit quirky – take on the smartphone-meets-camera concept. quite. Nothing the Z5 doesn't do better except all the cases when you need autofocus... :-). Sony's first two generations had one slot. I’d buy a modern APSC cameraBefore the A7ii. I actually like using a DSLR body and see very little advantage with mirror less since the size isn’t dramatically different and I can use F mount lenses without an adapter. Long time Nikon user. Fuji's strong painting of images works quite well for video, leaving a pleasing image with little effort. That yellow cast can be balanced out and the subtlety remains. How did Nikon make such an affordable full-frame camera, one that at a glance seems not make any compromises in terms of physical quality, nor image quality? Lots of brand lover type comments from people that don’t now what they’re talking about (because they haven’t ‘tested the waters’ and used other cameras to compare). I don't understand Nikon's mirrorless strategy. Although the Nikon Z6 features far fewer pixels than its sibling, the Z7, that doesn’t mean you should expect significantly lower image quality. The Z5 was launched recently in 2020, but it is a lower spec Z6 with dual card SD slots. Update, i forgot, the intial 300D got a 2nd Display, not on top, but backside, but it was very plasticky. Yea, if I do stay with the Z system I'll probably do that. > will not offer the same allround capabilities as a Z5. Besides the 3 best pro f2.8 zooms are the Nikon S ones- The R5 and R6 are the first two truly appealing Canon cameras in more than 10 years, but they are way over priced and not selling well. You're adapting a Nikon lens to a later model Nikon camera. @MohsinWadeeSo you want Full Frame uncropped 4k video in a 1400$ camera?Sony did, but it was more for the compact physical package, not for the price (2100$ - ouch)Aren't we wanting much? The sadsacks still trying to adapt Canon EF lenses to Sony bodies should not take their absolutely miserable experience with adapters to relate in any way to Nikon's FTZ adapter to F glass or Canon EF to RF adapters. Z5 inherited a version of that sensor I thought. I would far more trust Nikon's stabilization, build quality, menu system and ergos. * First full-frame mirrorless to truly challenge DSLR phase-detect systemsIndustry leading AF frame coverage. Take a closer look. In addition, hygenic practices have been increased everywhere, people do wear masks in highly frequented places. Their leaders don't refuse free WHO test kits so they can funnel all the PPE through their son in law's personal businesses. It’s leaps and bounds beyond DSLRs in many cases, yet I don’t hear anyone bashing AF on the 5D or D850. The Nikon Z5 is capable of excellent image quality whether shooting Raw or JPEG. The A7R II's 45 MP will certainly be better for landscapes, or other applications where more resolution matter, but the Z5 image quality is nearly indiscernible to the Z 6, A 7III, etc. In other words, it's a waste of time to read his posts. Here are the processed raw images at 100% crop: Since a GIF animation is not the best way to compare ISO noise between two cameras, here’s a side-by-side comparison of the Z5 and Z6 at ISO 6400: But wait! As an entry level full frame camera good 1080P video performance should be enough for most people. @johnami We talk about specialized cameras stores, online or no, which sell it at 1900€On PhotoCineComedie, it has a little 100€ promotion, but that's all. FujifilmXT3Not that good? Raw files provide impressive detail capture and good noise performance. oops. We immediately compared it to the Z6, and to get straight to the point, we were impressed by what we found! Make no mistake; it’s not perfect, but that’s the fault of the adapter and third-party lens, not Nikon. Nikon has only one problem: their Marketing, they are way too modest. If you are more heavily into video or any fast-action photography, the Sony will probably seem like a better value than either Nikon. Have you seen the D750 sensor measurements? The a7rII is a relic from before Sony fixed their AF system, battery life, and added some weather sealing. Trans-X looks good for black and white though. Enter your username or email address to receive a link to set your password. Price is important different between good entry-level camera and good camera. Compare that in Europe 8,800 people are intensive car in the U.S. 14,000. Find out now by reading our in-depth Nikon … Technical Editor Richard Butler's pick was the unusual lens that gave him the opportunity to try something new. That's the thing - in my opinion they are not minor and DPR was mistaken in giving the Z5 the gold award. And even then it’s quality is far below for example the Nikon Z6, terrible viewfinder, rear screen, grip, buttons, sealing and general feel. 'We have to go fishing to test the Nikon Z5,' they told us. But with the Z6 you'd have to spend a lot extra on an XQD memory card, whereas the Z5 will take much cheaper SD cards, > with the Z6 you'd have to spend a lot extra on an XQD memory card. Now you can adapt that mature E mount lens catalog to Nikon Z and it even works pretty well (give Techart some time and firmware updates, it will work better still) so there's that. Oops.Cheers.Davide. It turns out, photographers don’t like to work this way. I took some of my best photos with entry-level cameras :). I sure can! Alright, I’m gonna be that person. It's interesting that we are getting feedback from the forums now about Z5 AF. Compared to the older Sony a7 II$(document).ready(function() { $("#icl-5223-1184922573").click(function() { ImageComparisonWidgetLink(5223); }); }), Z5 color also looks a bit punchier, especially greens. For now, that’s all we can conclude about the Z5. You can see every blemish on the fireman's skin; every subtle shadow gradation if you look for it, looks pretty clear and sharp to me. The a7II will not offer the same allround capabilities as a Z5, not even close. The Z5's 24 megapixels cannot stand-up to the Sony's 42 megapixels; nor can Z5 4K with a massive crop (almost 50%!) Let’s go into detail about the key drawbacks of the Z5 that might incline you to buy a Z6 instead. Have to agree. One could apply film grain to the portraits, I suppose. F mount 70-200mm VR II is available second-hand in great condition at $1000/€1000. I like the concept of a stills-oriented camera that saves money by having a light video spec. I'm sure you are correct that the seven year-old sensor in the Z5 is superior to anything from twelve years ago. This gave some folks reason to fear that high ISO image quality would not be as impressive as the Nikon Z6 and Nikon D780, which have set a very high bar that roughly matches even the Sony A7 III and Sony a9 II. Because in Europe, by and large, (and yes, I've been there-twice) they take care of their people, not just their stock market and Corporations. But the compromises have been much, back into it's heyday. It’s enough of a blackout that the Z5 becomes very difficult to use for extremely fast action sequences when shooting in the “Ch” shooting speed, which is just 4.5 FPS. Over ISO 100, detail in colour pictures is much better than anything one can wheedle out of an APS-C Fujifilm camera. So, read on and stay tuned! The Fuji probably has a better feature set, the cheaper sensor gives them more budget to spend on features, but the Nikon is full frame. The rear camera (or cameras) on an iPhone has all the latest bells and whistles, but how do you use them to capture a selfie or record a video of yourself? I shot with mostly F-mount lenses when I first got my Z6, then bit the bullet and sold it all for S-line Nikkors. Neither of my FTZ adapters have ever failed me with any lens. I could imagine these prices will sink between now and Black Friday, especially after the release of the Z6ii/Z7ii when supplies of the (currently cheaper than Z5) Z6 will dry up. Native lenses that match the body are the best option if you can get it. Beyond that, even the A9 II wasn’t reliable enough for what we’d consider acceptable for professional work like wedding receptions or dark theaters…, What does this tell us? In this buying guide we’ve rounded up all the current interchangeable lens cameras costing around $2000 and recommended the best. Nikon hasn't put out compact f2.8 lenses yet (f2.8 pancakes are on the road map, 40mm and 28mmm). Adapting lenses via a camera manufacturers own adapter – Nikon F to Z or Canon EF to RF – is an entirely different experience. Sony is the mainstay? What's not to like? It won't unless you count Costco in 2 years for $799.00. https://fujilove.com/zooms-vs-primes-productivity-vs-style/. PS: in Europe the price is too high for all cameras.The RP is not cheap either - 1300E vs Z5 1600E. Done. Matthew Saville is a full-time wedding photographer at Lin & Jirsa Photography, and a senior editor & writer at SLR Lounge. Z5 body and Nikon Z 24-50mm: $1,697 at Adorama, at Amazon, at B&H or at Crutchfield.. Z5 body and Nikon Z 24-200mm: $2,197 at Adorama, at Amazon, at B&H or at Crutchfield. I wonder how it compares to the X-T4. It lacks behind some aspects customers should see it in the final results. Nikon sells the body cheap, so they can get people to buy the super expensive Z lenes. I have eight F mount and three S lenses: for stills there is no performance difference. If you shoot video, then there are indeed obvious drawbacks- the Z5’s 4K video is cropped to approximately a DX portion of the sensor, so although the video files have great detail and dynamic range, they’ll require a whole different approach when you need to shoot at a wider focal length. It's not 2003 anymore, when you could take a BIG hammer, cripple a camera here and there (like 300D), and still it became a best seller. They look how people really look. First of all, ignore anyone who brings up the RP as "competition". Specifically, we compared the two most important things: image quality, and autofocus performance. The Z6 and D780 share a more advanced 24MP BSI sensor. Guys, on page 2 (What's new and how it compares) you should correct the A7III Flash X sync speed speed from 1/200 sec to 1/250 sec. With an ovf the image would be clean,but then again it would be to dark to be able to discern anything. Yes, Z6 is better in several areas as you pointed out, but it's also (currently) $500 more expensive (body only). The 65mm T2 completes Vazen's set of anamorphic lenses for the Micro Four Thirds system. What part of "entry level" went over your head? That then would have differentiated the 5 and 6 more. While the face/eye detect did work pretty good it was still slow to acquire a lock after pressing the shutter button. In fact, you’re far more likely to see a significant difference (much, much worse performance) by grabbing literally any 24-megapixel full-frame camera, and then accidentally under-exposing an ISO 6400 or ISO 12800 by just 1 EV, let alone 2 EV. And again, here are some side-by-side comparisons to make it easier to analyze the results: Here’s the bottom line: in terms of both image detail VS noise levels, and dynamic range at both low and high ISOs, the Nikon Z5 performs amazingly well. They listed AF stuff under both the "Pros" and "Cons": * Continuous Eye-AF gives ground-breaking hit rate for portrait, candid, event photography. Here is a quote from the review... (Part 2) "The Z5 offers solid autofocus performance whether using traditional subject tracking, face/eye detect, or simply a single AF point/area. There are just a few things that set the Z5 apart from the Z6, but, (spoiler alert!) Sony a7rII is a relic from the past. Compare the subtle gradations of skin tone on the Canon shots at ISO 400 and 800, vs the watercolour effect on the Fuji image. The 24-70 f/4 is such a great lens. The Z5’s autofocus is impressive; Nikon has improved its mirrorless autofocus technology by leaps and bounds in the last two-plus years since the Z-mount was first introduced. Z 5 is powered by Nikon’s fast, comprehensive Expeed 6 image processing system. I don't think we will see many nationwide lockdowns, it would cause way too much pressure on the economy. What do they know that isn't stated in Toilet Roll's account? My favourite Sony lens is the full frame 35mm f2.8 ZA as it weighs 120grams and is tiny. A7R2 = 42 BSI megapixelsZ5 = 24 Non-BSI megapixelsA7R2 = 4K with no video cropZ5 = 4K massive video crop. Sure the number of cases rises, but the number of deaths and the number of people in intensive care is still rather low. Working in a variable light condition is easy with Nikon Z5. But then, what else can we expect from someone who tells lies for money ? At ISO 51,200, the highest native sensitivity setting, the Nikon Z5 produces respectable results. Sensor: Despite being an older sensor the performance difference is fairly small. Btw, D610 is still comparable good cameras now.

I would have preferred around 5.5, but it's still faster than the RP, and similar to A7RII (5fps). Yes, Nikon is the only company affected by the 2nd wave it seems.

Either way, the value is obvious- no other full-frame camera has debuted at a price this low, and offered this many features. There little data about the Expeed 6, but my guess is the Bionz X is competitive since it’s also used in the A7 III and A7R III. MSullivan & bernardlang: You folks seem to have forgotten that at the end of the day the most important thing is image quality. But strong rumors point to a Canon M50ii, which may well outgun the Z50. There is ZERO in common with third party adapters. Your handle is FuifilmXT3 and you're dissing a Nikon camera. And now Nikon.

Folks often talk about how camera companies cut features from a model to make a less expensive one. Are people really looking for a stills-oriented mirrorless camera? I just realized something - is this the first written review done before the video-review of a camera since Chris and Jordan joined DPR team? Alright, here’s what everybody has been concerned about: when the Z5 was announced, sharp-eyed photographers noticed that the 24-megapixel sensor was not “BSI”, that is, it’s not Back-Side Illuminated. DPReview's review of the A7R II went into considerable detail on the subject of AF. It is a boring camera. The Z50 is great to hold and use. So if it seems to be a stop better than other APS-C cameras in high ISO, then wouldn't that get it in the neighborhood of a lot of full framers? Otherwise I probably would have been very satisfied with a Z5 as a mainly stills photographer. I also maintain that DPR has been slightly too uncritical of the Z5s unbalanced feature set for the price, Since nobody will be using 4K on this camera, the IBIS is also rendered largely superfluous. If your eyes didn’t bug out a little bit when you saw the Z5’s price tag of $1,400, maybe reading this review has had that effect. I've done so. You can pick and choose all you want, but the takeaway is that the lenses are close in price across the board.

A7c deserves a mention under “Compared to its peers” though.

Nikon 24-70 2.8 - $2300Sony 24-70 2.8 - $2200, Nikon 70-200 2.8 - $2600Sony 70-200 2.8 - $2600, Nikon 50mm 1.8 - $600Sony 55mm 1.8 - $1000 (the cheaper Sony isn’t close to the same quality as the Nikon), Nikon 20mm 1.8 - $1050Sony 20mm 1.8 - $900, Nikon 35mm 1.8 - $850Sony 35mm 1.8 - $750, Nikon 24-200mm - $900Sony 24-240mm - $1050.

The Nikon glass all looks very good quality but I have been disappointed with the size of the primes for a small/light take anywhere combination. You can still get great quality 1080p with the Z5 by the way. It also has the traditional focus area modes Wide, Center, Flexible Spot, Expand Flexible Spot and Lock-on AF. The advantage of mirrorless is using the OSPDAF to work for both through the EVF shooting as well as shooting using the back screen. As many reviewers mentioned, the Z5 1080p is one of the best around. No more gearheads jumping on every new model. I have the Z6+24-70 f4 and it is very sharp. Smart of Nikon to use the same body for three cameras. Okay I admit the RP has a shutter button but to pay still that much for it? The possibility to shot 4K full frame is important, ultra wide angle lenses are very often used in video. The Z5 delivers insanely good value. Anyone who caries around a camera and doesn't want to carry a flash gun just to get some occasional fill flash. Just, HOW? At low ISOs the Z5 sensor actually has better DR. FPS: The fps is a bit low. You got the Z5. > This insanity has to stop. In fact I saw 'better', was more creative and thoughtful and learnt far more with entry level kit...and anyway, NOTHING about this cam is entry level if you were started with film in a manual rangefinder. (Part 1) I just returned mine. I was talking about the Z5 and its relevance in a video heavy marketplace. I love my RP! Can verify that the shadow detail is there. I just did something sneaky, to try and make both cameras look, well, as BAD as possible. The Z5 meanwhile is built to phenomenal standard with best in business build quality and will soon sell for what is incredible value compared to its competition. I've noticed the phrase "camera for stills photography" cropped up recently with Canon. Key takeaways: Sounds like you haven't tried a Z camera since the 3.0 firmware update, or you haven't tried a Z camera at all and are just repeating what you hear from others that have never shot a Z camera... Read how they analyze products and grade them. Fuji has nicely sized lenses but a lot of old formulas with slow autofocus, they need to update their glass but with beasts like the 16-55 f/2.8 or 50 f/1 you may as well go full frame. And we've been busy enjoying the last licks of summer with it by our side. @Armanius, You're talking nonsense. You can see some slight differences in color between this current generation of Nikon mirrorless cameras and the D750-generation: reds and yellows both look a tad punchier. SIDE NOTE: I actually had to reach for the Sony a9 II, the current reigning champion of all mirrorless autofocus, (a $4,500 camera, mind you) …in order to find a comparison scenario where the Z5 started to noticeably “lose the battle”. Free at point of service healthcare. My Z50 focuses faster and better than the Z5. I agree that I would not use the Techart on a paid job requiring AF. The adapter only works properly (autofocuses) with Nikon's newest lenses, which are those with built-in AF motors (AF-I, AF-S and AF-P). I'm happy that there's still healthy competition out there, I hope the camera sells well as it will herald good upgrades for all users no matter what their predilection. Personally, I do prefer the traditional camera ergonomics and controls of the Z5, and the Nikon FX mirrorless system is already very lightweight and portable to begin with, so it’s hard to complain over a few ounces. Their F mount trinity of 35mm, 50mm, 85mm f1.8 can be bought new for about $1000/€1000. This is how the Sony Real-Time Tracking system works, by the way, and Nikon’s Focus Tracking works almost as good in decent light, though it gets a bit less reliable in “terrible” light.
