Nikon's New Flagship Mirrorless

/ Categories: My Reviews, Reviews

A defining moment occurred @ 08:00 EST on October 28 2021 the Nikon Z9 is here and I am excited to offer my pre-order on this day of 2021 October 28th - I hope to see my Nikon Z9 soon.

Nikon has a true pro-level camera in fit, finish, and performance. The Nikon Z9 is a beautiful camera that embodies our growing Nikon Family - You!

I am a lifelong Nikon customer having had a very nice experience with all my Nikon purchases such as my Nikon Microscope, Nikon Monarch Binoculars, Nikon Cameras, and Nikon Lenses everything from the Mighty Nikon 600mm ED FL to the 8-15mm and almost every lens in between. Not to mention a heap of DSLRs from the D5, D4, D850, D500, D7200, etc and now three Nikon Mirrorless Cameras and most of the Z lenses (except the NOCT). Yes, I am a Nikon user.

Why do I make the statement above? Because I want Nikon to succeed and for Nikon to "resume" a spot for my continued partnership of their products. When I pre-ordered the Nikon Z7 and then received it I was let down by Nikon and mislead through Nikon's Marketing. Nikon is with the Z9 delivering promises in spades and is worth every day I waited for this day to come. Thank You, Nikon!

Can Nikon deliver a new camera before 2022? No! Realistically speaking the Nikon Z9 will not ship en-mass until the late 1st Quarter of 2022.  The best Nikon will be able to do is ship a handful of Z9 to "promoters". I was very surprised at the pricing of the Z9 and was expecting $6K+ but had a pleasant surprise, less than a Nikon Z6.

Historically, this is where I would normally mention all the previous Nikon announcements and their promises, and pre-order delays but what's the point - it will be what it will be. I am just glad Nikon has pulled the Z9 from the camera oven after 3+ years of baking. WoW, what a camera!!!

8K. I don't see too many people sporting 8K screens right about now, but nice for those who use it. Making great video is very important in today's photography market.

Photography Reviews, and Information

Nikon Z9

The Nikon Z9  is now available for Pre-Order - and from what I have seen is a huge step forward.

Nikon Z Teleconverter TC-1.4x Review

As a primary wildlife and Bird photographer, I am constantly looking for ways to close distance to the wildlife I am after to photograph. The Nikon teleconverter can make a big difference between success and failure.

Nissin MF18 Ring Flash Review

My main go-to for Macro Photography has been the Nikon awesome RIC1 Macro Flash system.  I decided to step outside the Nikon umbrella and get myself a Ring Flash to go along with my New S 105mm Macro Lens.

Nikon 70-200mm f/2.8E FL ED VR Lens Review

This is not a comparison between various 70-200mm lenses 3rd party lens manufacture.  This review is based on my experience using the Nikkor 70-200 ED FL zoom lens from Nikon. My expectations when I made the purchase was very high given the price point.  So, how has this lens performed?

Nikon Z 6II Review

The New Nikon Z 6II is here and what does it bring to the table?  A lot in the shortest sentence I can type. The Nikon Z 6II is one awesome camera - and did I say it does top-notch video?

Nikon 500mm F/5.6 PF Lens Review

In August 2018 Nikon announced the release of a compact super telephoto - the 500mm f/5.6E PF ED VR  Making this their second Phase Fresnel lens the first being the awesome 300mm PF PF/4. I am excited to see Nikon introduce this new prime lens at a sub 4k.  Let's run through the technical details as it relates to weight, compactness, and sharpness.  All of which are expected to be superior.

Nikon D850 Review

The Nikon D850 camera when release soon became lauded as a game-changing DSLR and now that I have mine let me give you my opinion not that Nikon Mirrorless Z cameras have become widely available.

Nikon Z7 vs Nikon Z7 II Which one to buy?

Nikon Z7 vs Nikon Z7 II: Nikon has made several key improvements to the Nikon Z7 II mirrorless camera by adding a second-generation body that supports dual card slots and a second EXPEED processor.  Now the question is which camera should you buy or should you upgrade you Z7 or DSLR?  Without the techno ramblings, this article is a simplified recommendation.

Nikon 400mm f/2.8E ED FL Review

Nikon AF-S Nikkor 400MM f/2.8E ED FL VR Lens:

2020 update ... The Nikkor 400mm 2.8 ed fl is an exceptional lens known for its flexibility and amazingly sharp images. Lighter and more nimble than it's predecessors but all the while retaining and improving on an already great Nikkor 400 heritage, this lens will bring to the photographic market a continued, appreciated, and highly sought after photographic instrument.  The Nikon AF-S Nikkor 400MM f/2.8E ED FL VR Lens is an excellent lens.
