The full-frame mirrorless battle just got intense
It took a while, but Nikon has made a return to making mirrorless cameras. This time around, the Japanese brand is hell-bent on going head-to-head with Sony by launching its first full-frame mirrorless cameras with the Z6 and Z7.
Common features between the two include Nikon’s new Z mount, an in-body image stabilization system that promises 5 stops on Z-mount lenses and 3 stops on F-mount lenses, a single XQD card slot, a 3.6M dot resolution electronic viewfinder and an EN-EL15b battery.
The Z6 and Z7 differ in their sensor configuration. The Z6 has a 24.5-megapixel sensor with an ISO 100-51,200 native range, 12FPS shooting speed, and a hybrid PDAF with 273 points covering 90% of the sensor area.
The Z7, on the other hand, has a 45.7MP full-frame sensor with an ISO 64-25,600 native range, 9FPS shooting speed, and a hybrid PDAF with 493 points covering 90% of the sensor area.
Together with the Z6 and Z7, Nikon is releasing three new Z-mount lenses consisting of the Nikkor Z 35mm f/1.8, Nikkor Z 50mm f/1.8 and a Nikkor Z 24-70 f/4. In addition, F-mount users can use their lens with the FTZ adapter.
The Nikon Z7 will be available on September 27 for $3400 (~Php 182k) or $4000(~Php 214.1k) with the 24-70mm f/4 lens.
The Nikon Z6, on the other hand, will become available by November for $2000(~Php 207.1k) or $2600(~Php 128.5k) with the 24-70mm f/4 lens. The FTZ adapter will sell for $250(~Php 13.4k).
