At 135mm it's nice to be able to safely shoot at 1/50th second for street for instance, with only motion blur in your subject. Sensors with AA filters are less prone to moire for example. I find that to be pure nonsense spouted by biased people. It worked for Canon EOS, and now Sony is doing the same. $998 is a smoking hot deal! Mainly out of anger with Canon for the crippled video and for smaller size (Sony does have some very nice small lenses in normal focal lengths for the E mount). The reason they're throwing in (some of) the features from their competitors' more expensive cameras, is because that's how an underdog gets market share. @MyReality the Z6 is $2000. Which would suggest simply diff in jpeg default processing , not hardware. I mean, it went from high ISO/noise, to megapixel count, to banding and DR, then onto "yeah but, Canon colours...", but now we're back to DR and banding? The D750 now goes for about half of what it did new. Yes they can be irritating. There is still an enthusiastic community of vinyl record collectors and turntable users. As for video, people have been using A7II for video for quite a while now. There are no junk cameras. Using a 64GB Sony XQD card with both 400MB/s read and write speeds, we managed 35 raw files at 12fps (12-bit NEF files); the burst shooting speed drops to 9fps for 14-bit NEF files, with a slightly reduced buffer of 33 raw files. Another caveat is longer focal lengths at a small size/weight on FF. Evening out the light before it enters the camera is preferable to trying to correct the results of an overly contrasty scene - very bright and very dark areas in an image. The scientists over in the PST forum are hard at work at trying to identify what triggers it, but we suspect the PDAF rows have a large part to play since the spatial frequency of the banding matches that of the PDAF rows. The Z6 II charges via USB with any generic USB-C cord and any 5V USB source. @matthew saville If price is no object... For less than the price of a Z7 a photographer could pick up a 1DX Mark II with low shutter count. Of course with good technique and a steady hand, that number could go as low as 1/150th second but it wouldn't be consistent. Colours are improved here as well with all cameras relative to D750. Things that actually matter in the real world. 24.5 million. The Primoplan 75mm F1.9 II is a redesign of the original Primoplan 75mm F1.9 designed in 1936. The best cameras for under $1000 should have good ergonomics and controls, great image quality and be capture high-quality video. If you place the square next to the bottles with some shadow, at +ev2 you can see banding, Even A7II is better ($999 with the lens now! Drag over the green leaves section and compare. Nikon Z6 Body Only Mirrorless Digital Camera - Black with FTZ adaptor (English & French Only) from Toby Deals Nikon Z6 Body Only Mirrorless Digital Camera - It's just a sharper, newer lens - believe me there is no improvement to see because of the mount. At $2000, people have the right to ask for good stuff (or better :) ). Note that Canon is not using the same sensor technology for the EOS R. https://www.dpreview.com/forums/post/61897175. Your bias has obviously led you to ignore the A7 III. Sooner or later Nikon will have to address this. Receive mail from us on behalf of our trusted partners or sponsors? Charging. Or, Einride & Foto64, try to shoot a sunset without burning out the sun... you'll likely need between 3 and 6 stops underexposure, depending on the brightness of the sun. I was interested until I saw that banding, was the reason i left Canon a long time ago. I do realize that mirrorless is the future, I'm not blind. @T3 I'd take the D750. That's how messed up Sony is. His graphs show a similar pattern to the a7 III's results but with the performance lying a fraction behind the Sony and a little ahead of the Canon EOS R at most ISO settings. I agree the new Z series are better. I guess cameras are pretty much maxed out in terms of capabilities and the only measurable thing left is the 0.3 stop difference in DR... And people need to fight over something. It is just as uncomfortable and hurts my fingers with bigger lenses. For landscape photographers and anyone who demands a 45.7MP sensor capable of super high-resolution output, the Nikon Z 7 gets the nod over its sibling. I'm agnostic about dSLRs and/or mirrorless so I'm not defending one or the other. A Canon 5D line camera feels better in the hand than any current mirrorless contender with controls closer at hand (the Nikon Z6/Z7 comes close but that's because it's built just like a DSLR). I traded in my Fuji X-H1 for a Canon 5DS R. Best camera equipment decision I ever made. I guess I'm confused by the sudden turn to dSLRs when the OP was about the mirrorless, and then next comparisons being to mirrorless cameras. 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. Mirrorless is a small step down due to the banding from adding a focus layer to the sensor. Microfocus adjustment is a pain but is achievable and gets easier with practice. As in all things, it's a better balance between sharpness and ISO performance. Not quite as much as on the Z6, but it's there.". All the tech stuff is important but the Z6/7 will meet most people's needs, "good enough" is a term I like to use. The new Laowa 15mm F4.5 Shift lens lets you go wide with perspective control. Image Quality. @UncoyDP - Yeah, obviously, the cash cow days of DSLRs is coming to an end. That may or may not matter to you. Because, for the work that pays my rent, I'd rather have a D750, hands-down. Firstly, that's just your opinion (or bias). Current page: Oh forget this post. Other people will tell you if you don't believe DPR or me. Oh my god, my camera doesn't have the latest wireless functions? Again, as I said, we could spend forever talking about which exact features on which camera offer an advantage. Shooting a 35mm lens at 1/5 second is just silliness most of the time unless your subject is a rock or a tree. Much more details are preserved for D750 in gray graphics for example, red brush, foam where structure of material is much crisper. Because if money is no object, or at least less of a problem, then I'd absolutely recommend that /most/ photographers consider an A7iii, if they need both IBIS and dual card slots, or a Z6, or an EOS R, depending on their specific needs and preferences. Image quality compared. It's also a lot heavier and larger too! If I had to pick one of these cameras, I would value other features as more important for real world photography than just dynamic range. Therefore, simply speaking, we have not exact direct sensor only comparison because lenses are also different! Good ND filters, especially the 100mm square system variety, are an excellent tool regardless of some of the "disadvantages" so claimed. Really choosing a new camera comes down to personal preferences anymore. Canon users refuse to admit that their gear is inferior in build compared to Nikon! If you don't' see "the problem" with the A7ii, that's great! I'm sure a lot of Nikon users back in the 1990's dismissed the Rebels as "junk cameras." This should be taken in consideration when going for an exposure strategy, unless the extra dynamic range of ISO 100 is really needed.

(For example 2.58 on the 24-70 F2.8 VR), So it is easy to end up with 5-6 stops of push even without adjusting the overall exposure. Or, if I had $2K or more, I'd absolutely consider an A7iii or a Z6 or whatever. And that's coming from a D7200. I heard it all. You're not understanding what they are saying. There's a huge difference between 1/60th second and 1/400th second in terms of exposure. Wish Canon had that sensor in their EOS R, it's performance in a whole raft of areas would dramatically improve. The D750 offers some things that the A7iii offers, compared to the A7ii. If you miss shots, well the camera is useless. Upon checking I noticed 1 stop(SS 320 vs 640) difference between image files. Low light Raw performance is competitive with the best of its peers$(document).ready(function() { $("#icl-4302--698920912").click(function() { ImageComparisonWidgetLink(4302); }); }), which is to say it's essentially class leading. The bottom line is that the A7ii has numerous serious drawbacks. Sony will tell you pay through nose or f-- off. It also reminds me of film photographers talking disparagingly of digital photographers. Now when this camera goes off production it would appear on Amazon and Ebay at extra $2000 plus for New condition. Firmware version 3.00 for the Z6 and Z7 camera systems brings major new and improved features, including updates to the AF tracking implementation, expanded CFexpress support, animal-detection autofocus and more. You left out dubious autofocus performance. The D750 is about $1700, the Z6 $2650. Nikon's firmware 3.0 update for the Z6 and Z7 includes AF improvements designed to replicate its class-leading 3D-tracking mode for DSLRs. You don't understand, and you have no respect for others' choices. Although, I have to say that, like SAMFAN commented, I think this whole debate is splitting hairs on a minor shortfall whilst ignoring the key concern - the Z6/7's questionable autofocus performance. There are a lot of photo/video cameras that have found a role as B-cameras on professional productions or A-camera for amateur and independent productions. Banding on the Z6 and Z7 appears to be intermittent, though we observe it more often than we do not. However, in my experience, physical filters are a better solution than digital filters. The banding on the Nikon sensor described in the article is nothing to do with the shutter, mechanical or electronic. Have a look. Banding on/off. The Leica Q2 Monochrom is a version of the Gold Award-winning Q2 that only shoots images in black and white. bigger. Nikon users had the same dismissive attitude towards Canon EOS back in the 1990s. Side-by-side, we reckon the quality of the Z6's EVF just edges the Alpha A7 III's. Power & Battery specifications top Battery. http://www.photonstophotos.net/Charts/PDR.htm#Nikon%20Z%206. It's a niche (and pricey) product to be sure, but so far we find it to be well-designed and capable of outstanding results. On Nikon D750 RAW 100 - look at the photos on the left. We could go back and forth listing which perks of which system we'd like to highlight, out of context, but the bottom line is that there are still significant drawbacks to BOTH, too. And since Sony has no professional support and usually refuses to replace cameras, they are a joke to professionals. The D850 is a nec plus ultra camera (and I shoot Canon). The same goes for many scenarios where you want to avoid burning out the highlights. Nikon began shipping the Z 6 to retailers on November 16, 2018. Better than the Sony being the main point. And without even a photographer in most cases. Some times that was not enough and Nikon swipes the whole body for a replacement. Not sure I'd take an A7II if you gave it to me though. They have greater pricing flexibility. I wouldn't say that one camera is better or worse because it has these features or not, as not all photographers will need the features. It's held its price on the market as well as anyone. The bottom line is that there are plenty of reasons to go with either camera, if you're on a budget. Meanwhile in the US, Canon now replaces or fixes their DSLRs for free, even if it is due to accidental damage or severe conditions. "Buying sensors is better than making ones in house.". The Z6 and Z7 had a high bar to clear. Canon's 35mm f2 IS is an exception. JPEGs were shot with lens corrections minimized as far as possible. Well, at least Nikon let you choose D850 instead, if you don't like banding. They don't see the value of the new technology. I didn’t expect leaps forward in IQ. Did you even read other comments. There will always be people who stick their heads in the sand. The banding happens only if you drag the shadows slider in ACR to the right for an equivalent of six stops higher than the exposure would indicate. The banding on the Z6 is barely visible at +5 EV whilst still being easily visible on the Z7 when scaled to the same size. Not in terms of image quality. And wireless is of course not useful for you, but I like it and is useful to me. The Nikon Z6 II has great performance across the board and this makes it a compelling choice. New York, They have a strange vertical line through their left eye - dividing the photo with unusual colorization on both sides. It is amazing how good that cheap little Nikon Z mount Kit lens performs. I guess we're focusing on different things, which is OK, plus we also live in different areas. As a stills camera without adapting Canon glass or mainly shooting manual focus glass (landscape only with Sony workflow), the A7II is a good starter package. But this dynamic range thing is just splitting hairs to a ridiculous degree. Sorry, undless emergency, I am not photographing at ISO > 6400, even D850 output is pretty noisy at these settings.Yes Z6 is better at very hight ISO, no doubt, if you need to shoot at ISO > 10 000 go for it. But the Nikon Z6 is no slouch in the image quality department. It is my opinion that the D750's serious drawbacks are less numerous than those of the A7ii. @ panther fan, Yep, that's correct. What a benefit! It's just there's not many shorter focal length lenses with IS, particularly fast ones. The Z6 has a full-frame sensor in a camera that weighs less than a DX D7500, and is built to the same standards as the D850. Second, due to having lower resolution, it is also able to shoot faster continuously at 12 FPS vs 9 FPS. There isn't any banding of any kind in the Sony comparison". Metering is spot on, with a tendency to expose for the highlights to ensure detail isn't blown out, while images look punchy and well saturated. Like the Nikon Z6, the Z6 II, offers great image quality, and great handling, but with added "oomph" as well as the convenience of an SD card slot. Pros: Image Quality. Then you would see banding. Touch screens are irrelevant to most photography: if your camera has a joystick moving the focus point around with the camera held to your eye is easier with a joystick. When you compare RAW files the differences are insignificant. Detail is also very good – more densely populated sensors certainly have the edge, but with quality optics on the front of the Z6 you can capture images rich in detail, and with excellent corner-to-corner sharpness. I've shot all day with mirrorless and I have never experienced any more eye fatigue compared to DSLRs. But I also know that whenever something new and amazing comes along, that makes tons of older stuff (which is still perfectly good) an absolute bargain for those who are on a budget. But as for your snobbish, arrogant comments:"photographers who know how to read a light meter, judge light and properly prep microfocus adjustment much" and "fewer and fewer photographers who know much about exposure or prepping their equipment so mirrorless will sell well". It's fun to play around with. And that can't be fixed in post processing! It's the end of an era. @Bob: those lenses donr catch nearly as much light. Nikon Z6 vs Nikon Z7 Sensor Though both of these cameras have 35mm high-resolution backside-illuminated sensors, the Z6 has "only" 24.5-megapixels while the Z7 has 45.7-megapixels. is just absurd. The A7II is over four years old. I'd wonder how overblown the Nikon AF complaints are. Images are captured with outstanding sharpness, clarity and color rendition. That's not what I wrote. Plus, it doesn't have IBIS, doesn't have face/eye AF, has a slower frame rate, has very limited focus coverage (focus points only clustered in the center), etc. The 3rd sentence was not referring to the 1st sentence. It was childish back then, and it's childish today. In my opinion, unless you use video professionally or money doesn't matter to you, "the gain is not worth the pain". Especially the latter which is an absolute image quality and autofocus beast. @lacikuss - Sony is playing hardball. to start with. You pay couple grands for what? It already does to those of us who know how to take advantage of sensor advancements and not adhere to the traditional rules of 'exposure triangle' and 'ISO'.
