The weather has forced me to learn a new toy by shooting things I didn't buy the camera for. I am just enjoying shooting with it so much I find myself using it for all sorts of things.
Thanks, Bill.Great pics. Keep em coming.
Thank you, Terri.Awesome!!
Thanks.Really nice pictures.
Thanks for looking.Very nice set!
Thanks, Jim. That last one I wasn't expecting to see back this way yet. It's a brown thrasher.All excellent, especially the last one, which is a bird I don't recognize. Can you enlighten me?
Thanks. I wasn't expecting to like the EVF as much as I have been. Now, my SLRs seem dark when I look through them. No way I could use the ZA lovely set!
I‘m still not a fan of EVF’s for birding, mind you I haven’t tried either of Nikon ZII bodies. Based on my previous experience, I have issues identifying the bird where it is against a bright background, or locating birds to photograph when they are in thick scrub.
Thanks, Allan. The snow was coming down so hard for awhile the camera couldn't autofocus part of time.Nice set. I like the cardinal with the snow best.
Thanks, Rick. I have a few others where I was conscious of another bird in the background.Wow! I like the titmouse in the background in #3. Well done.
Randy, you're shots with the Z6 last year coupled with the "need" to trade in some older gear that wasn't selling is what led me to consider the Z6. I actually got a good deal from a St. Louis shop on my gear and picked out a Z6. A week later I returned and exchanged it for a z6 II with kit lens. It was meant to be my hiking camera. I think it has now replaced my D750. I like the bright EVF, exposure feedback, focusing out to the edges, and joystick. I think I'll have to sell the D750 now. Hoping with the second processor in the Z6 II there will be a few more focus system firmware updates. I have also noticed a few of the focus glitches - so I'm hesitant to limit myself. But, for what I shoot this is turning out pretty well. I still have the D500 for my main wildlife camera.Can’t argue about Z IQ, it’s top notch and so is this set.
I decided to keep my Z6 and use it for what it’s good at and add the 24-105z when it comes out.
Thanks for looking. Not sure about the adapter. I can't recall if I noticed it when using any of the other lenses or not. I noticed it with my longer glass, the 500mm f/4 and the 200-500 VR. The original Z6 I had first wouldn't focus my Sigma 150mm macro OS at all. But, the Z6 II I ended up with works well. I did update firmware for both the camera and the FTZ, though. Not sure if that had anything to do with it.Nice set of images.
I wonder if/how much of the AF issues on the Z bodies have to do with the adapter. That seems to be a common complaint with all adapters as well as with TCs.
