To write a new book Nikon Z5 A Complete Guide, I bought a Z5 with a 24-50mm kit lens. The Z5 is a more affordable version of the Z6. The Z5 shoots only 5 fps, but otherwise it is very similar to the big brothers Z6/Z7. The menu user-interface hierarchy is almost identical to that offered in the Z6/Z7. I have been using my Z5 for the past 2 weeks. Here are some sample shots. Very impressed by this tiny 24-50mm lens. The ghosts and flare are very well controlled even when I shoot directly into the sun -- superb surface coating. The silent shutter scan seems rather slow with a heavy rolling distortion (silent off and on). The in-camera VR works good (1/2 sec hand-held). The mechanical shutter curtain diffraction (I talked about some time ago here) was very well controlled (removed) in the Z5 (do not know how they did it). So, there is no recognizable vertical line from the sun even when the lens is wide open (I used SILDENT in my sample shot below nonetheless). All sample shots below are JPEG straight from the camera.
