    Image stabilization with Nikon VR lens and adapter?

    It's greyed out as you use the switch on the lens to turn VR on or off (vs using the menu option). This gives you only one point for selecting VR vs two to avoid confusion. One way to tell if VR is working is to shake the camera while looking through the viewfinder (at least that's how I do it!).

    The DSLR will probably die...

    I have no problems focusing with the 200-500mm VR + TC-14E (max aperture is f8 with that combination) on a Z7.

    Z Series Autofocus Guide

    Gotta love how they point out the modes the Z bodies have that are not on the D850, but not vice-versa :)

    Battery Life

    Battery life on my Z7 is all over the place. I've seen as high as 800+ shots with 20% left using the 70-200VR taken in one location ), and as low as 200 with adapted lenses during various photowalks. I have GPS enabled through SnapBridge all the time.

    light spots in night photos with Z6

    I saw something similar in several shots with the Z7 and 55mm f1.2 (no filter), taken at night with multiple light sources.

    Nikon’s Z-Mount Can Accept f/0.65 Lenses

    That wasn't the primary reason. The F-mount suffered from being a kludge with respect to all the electronics. Nikon has managed to make it work, but it was time to move into the 21st century.

    Z6/Z7 viewfinder

    It's way better than the EVF on the Fuji X-T1 (my best reference). I had trouble manual focusing with some lenses on the Fuji, and so far MF has been a joy with the Z7.

    Nikon’s Z-Mount Can Accept f/0.65 Lenses

    "Gillet states that the main limitation of the Nikon F mount is that it can’t physically support autofocus lenses faster than f/1.4. The new Z mount shatters that barrier, as evidenced by the upcoming Nikon 58mm f/0.95 Noct Z-mount lens." The 58mm is MF.

    Nikon Z7 FTZ adapter

    It IS the aperture stop down actuator. It's the same as the one on the FT1 (too lazy to post images of the FT1). When an F-mount lens is not mounted on a camera, the aperture stops down as there is a spring that pulls it close (don't know about the E lenses as I don't have one). Mount the lens...

    Nikon Z7 Max shutter is 1/2000

    That's the limit when you have ECFS turned on. Turn it off and you can get to 1/8000 without going into silent mode.

    Nikon Z7 FTZ adapter

    My Z7 experiment.

    Curious as to why you'd shoot action in AF-S and not AF-C?

    Z7 Firmware Update

    I have the same card reader (not much of a selection), and I left the card in it last weekend. User error, but the card just disappears in the slot. And I agree, I've never tried to upload by connecting the camera to my computer.

    Z7's rear LCD flipping

    That’s been claimed as the reason why the top end models don’t have built-in flash or tilt screens. Personally I would have preferred a swivel screen like the D5200 etc but oh well. For the price you pay for a Leica, that cell phone should be free.

    For those who own it, what's your take on the FT-Z adapter?

    The tripod stump makes it a bit uncomfortable to hold, more so than the FT1 which has a wider foot. Limited use so far, but no AF issues with the 85mm f1.8G and 35mm f1.8 ED. Randomly shot a skater with the 85mm wide open and center AF, and the camera nailed the focus. Haven't tried focusing...

    Options to replace SC-29?

    I used my SC-29 last night, and found the outer insulation cracked and discolored in several places. I'm not sure what happened as the cable is stored in a dry closet, but it has been several months since I last used it. What are my options for a remote trigger system that maintains iTTL and...

    Thanks all for the kind comments. I should have zoomed to 28mm to get more of the feathers in the FOV. Next time :)

    Ah, missed that, because I actually think Rutger Hauer would make an interesting Bruce Wayne in the "Batman: The Dark Knight" miniseries vein.
