Here are the latest Nikon Z7 reviews, first impressions and hands-on videos on the web. The Nikon Z7 is the company’s first full-frame mirrorless camera.
The full frame MILC is a 46MP, 4K-capable machine built around a variant of the D850’s BSI CMOS chip. The Z7 is based around the all-new Nikon Z-mount but an adapter is available (FTZ Mount Adapter: $246.95 at Amazon, B&H, Adorama) for use with existing Nikkor F-mount lenses.
Along with the 45.7MP BSI-CMOS sensor, the camera features a hybrid AF system with 493 points and 90% coverage and 5-axis in-body image stabilization. The Nikon Z7 is available body-only for $3399 or bundled with the 24-70mm F4 S lens for $3,999. You can also check the Nikon Z7 in Stock / Availability Tracker.
