Interesting to see how the 70-300 does on a Z6. Quite impressive.

Do you leave VR on the lens engaged as well as that in the camera?

Were the colors adjusted in post processing? Skin tones look very natural.
I do leave the VR turned on. The skin tones are as shot. The lens is a great companion to the Z6. I haven’t tried it on my other cameras yet.

Hi Jim,

If you use a VR lens with the FTZ then the VR switch on the lens controls both the in-camera IBIS and the in-lens VR.

You don't have one independent of the other. Switching VR off also switches IBIS off.

With a VR lens you have both. With a non-VR lens you have IBIS.

Thanks for enlightening me on this point. Do they play well together? e.g. do you get increased stabilization over that of the VR lens alone?

I think that I can get better results with the Z6 than any previous camera and where it shines for me is the AF accuracy, particularly with the Pin Point Mode. I can get sharper results at lower shutters speeds, but I tend to use a tripod for most things so VR/I B IS is not high on my list of priorities.

B&H now has a refurbished Z6 + 24-70 for $1800...very tempting but you still have to buy the FTZ and XQD cards and reader...
Maybe there would be a good deal on a used FTZ somewhere. The cards are expensive. I've managed with only one, but I think I will buy one more before we go on our family vacation next month.

Do you use your Z6 in preference to your D750?

I sold my D750 actually before I picked up the Z6. No regrets. Low light focussing seems just as good. It plays just fine with all my af-s and af-p Nikon lenses. High ISO is just as good if not better. No fine tuning of lenses with relatively effective IBIS. It's a good camera.

Hi Jim,

I use each one according to what I am doing. Right now I have a large number of slides to copy so my 60mm f2.8 is on the Z6 with the ES-1. The D750 is my main workhorse for panoramas. I do not have any Z lenses so mounting the Z6 on my Panosaurus might prove difficult to set up because of the FTZ.

In my case and in my circumstances I am glad that I kept the D750.

I posted this elsewhere in the Café, but thought folks here would appreciate them, since it was your experiences, silent exaltation to buy (!) and your skill that pushed me in to Z territory!
I finally got through the users manual and Thom Hogan's guide for my Z6 was testing it with a F-mount lens when these little guys wandered by. Heavily cropped, but I'm happy (hand held, spot metering, dynamic area focusing, processed in DXO-PL2). Cloudy/overcast day.
