Nikon’s first full frame mirrorless camera is here
Nikon has just unveiled its brand new full-frame mirrorless cameras. The Z7 ($3,399.95) and the Z6 ($1,995.95). This effort of Sony is challenging Sony’s mirrorless camera market. The two cameras share an identical design but differ in megapixel count and other areas like number of focus points and ISO range.
These two cameras are basically a tit-for-tat for Sony’s A7III and A7RIII, and Nikon is aggressively going several steps beyond what Canon has attempted with mirrorless cameras.
The Z7, coming on September 27th, has a 45.7-megapixel sensor, 493 focus points, and 64-25600 ISO. The Z6 will follow in “late November” with a 24.5-megapixel sensor, 273 focus points, and 100-51200 ISO. The cameras bring with them an all-new Z mount system that will debut with a 24-70mm f/4 “kit” lens.
A 35mm f/1.8 prime ($845.95) will be available at launch as well. There’s also a 50mm f/1.8 prime ($599.95) coming in October that Nikon tells me has astounded some of its engineers with sharpness and edge-to-edge clarity.
Still, that’s really not much to kick off a lens system. But thankfully Nikon has every intention of embracing its massive lineup of F-mount lenses. Alongside the Z cameras, the company is releasing a $250 FTZ adapter that offers full compatibility meaning it will support autofocus and auto exposure where available.
