Up until about a week ago when I started seeing pretty realistic images of what the lower-resolution (i.e., 24.5MP) Z6 is supposed to look like I wasn’t that interested. The teaser images that had been provided by Nikon made it look ugly.
I will confess I kind of like the look of it, THOUGH the LCD panel on the top is a turn-off. Waste of money on a mirrorless. C’est la vie.
I am glad that they are making a lower-resolution, i.e., 24.5MP, model. A higher-resolution camera is of no interest to I — for my work.
The three full-frame lenses being announced with the Z6 leave me stone cold. They are nowhere close to the zoom focal lengths I prefer; i.e., 24mm — 240mm (at least).
But, it is the ‘FTZ’ adapter ‘F-to-Z’ (meaning Nikon F-mount to the new Z-mount) that has me most interested. I am so fed up with not having enough choice when it comes to AFFORDABLE Sony Full-Frame lenses.
I haven’t really started studying the specs. as yet. Might as well wait till the announcement next week.
I am close to the 20,000 photo mark on my 18-month old Sony a7 II. That is a fair number of pictures. I can still probably get a good price for it on eBay. I am not in any hurry. Definitely not planning to pre-order one. I can wait. Might be a nice Christmas present for myself. You will, of course, be the first to know.
Then … there is the Canon Full-Frame mirrorless that is supposed to get announced next month. What will be more tempting?
