Oh wow! It’s great that Nikon is finally getting that out, they have had a hole in their lineup without having a FF mirrorless.
I wonder who here would be interested in a Nikon FF Mirrorless?
Jim-since I haven't jumped at an 850 yet, it will be a consideration. I need to rebuild my kit after a mishap or two and some less than stellar purchases. Either a really good adapter for legacy lenses or the anticipation of a better than now new lens selection would be necessary along with a usable interface and view finder. However, right now, the rumor mill doesn't make it sound better than the 850, except for the newest camera factor.
Hmmmm. I guess this is good for those who want mirrorless. My D810 is just amazing and I dont want anything else.
Yeah it does seem like lot's of people do want Mirrorless.
I am totally happy with my D850 and loved my D810 before I got the D850. I have no desire to go to Mirrorless either, but I do know lot's of people do seem to want the Mirrorless size for various reasons, so for Nikon users who do want the Mirrorless body, this is good news for them.
Well, I'm interested in seeing how the adapter will work. No real interest in buying a complete separate set of lenses though if I had to do that. I like having two bodies, and for the first time in years I am down to one. It's either this, or a second D850 at some point. If the adapter is seamless, at least for Nikon lenses, then I might consider it. Also price WILL be a consideration. To my way of thinking, this is the first real iteration and is going to be Nikon's D100 equivalent of their mirror-less journey. So... guess I'm saying be prepared to expense all of the cost...
Your comment Craig about this being the first iteration of a FF Mirrorless camera is also something to remember in terms of quality as most often the first model of something by any company is never the best, it's usually the 2nd version of it where things really pick up and get good. Granted Nikon has been making good quality DSLR's for many years, but that might be something to keep in mind for those thinking about getting this.
I think after the release announcement last night, and evaluating the cost of a new system (Z7 body only $100 more than a D850)... Plus it being a first iteration, I'll most likely end up just getting a second D850 for the next few years. It's tried and true. However, if a great opportunity surfaces for getting one of the mirrorless ones cheap, then it may come and go through my gear mix to try at some point....
It does look like a good start for Nikon, and within a few years I'd imagine they will really refine it.
The lens road map, particularly the 14-30 f4, has caught my attention more than the lack of mirror or the sensor. Reading Tamara Lackey's review on Adorama, I am left with the hope that the 14-30 and the 24-70 f4s will make a great landscape/travel kit.
(edit to correct typo on focal length)
I agree Tim, I saw that 14-40mm and they had my attention!
