Nikon Z 7
Nikon has made a solid debut of its all-new full-frame mirrorless Z-Mount system with the Z7. It handles full-frame 4K video surprisingly well, with high-quality 10-bit external output and no cropping, plus 120 fps 1080p. The new mount will allow Nikon to build sharp, compact lenses, even though the glass launched with the Z7 is pretty boring. Luckily, you can get an adapter that supports any F-Mount DSLR lens. Image quality with the 45.7-megapixel sensor is great, but unfortunately, autofocus tracking is slow and not up to par with Sony’s A7R III. If you need to buy a high-resolution full-frame camera today, Nikon’s Z7 is a great choice.

No, it isn’t as good as the Sony A7R III, despite costing 400 bucks more ($3,400 vs $3,000), but realistically, Sony had a freakin’ five-year head start. What’s amazing is how close Nikon got to the Sony on its first attempt. For people who know they want to be/stay in the Nikon ecosystem, I might even recommend it over the D850, despite its shortcomings, but that’s because I’m a big believer in mirrorless. Basically, Nikon has stepped into the game ready to play, and I’d expect the mark II is going to make some serious waves.Digital Photography Review90Nikon Z7 ReviewThe Nikon Z7 - the brand's first full-frame mirrorless camera - is also its most well-rounded camera for stills and video, and an exciting indicator for what's to come from the 101 year-old company. But first generation products are rarely perfect, and the Nikon Z7 is no exception.Ken Rockwell80Nikon Z7The Nikon Z7, along with its faster and less expensive sister the Nikon Z6, has the same great Nikon feel and handling we've all come to love — except now in mirrorless form! They have all the usual Nikon controls in the usual places.Imaging Resource80Nikon Z7 ReviewWith the Z7, Nikon has made an excellent step into full-frame mirrorless photography. In many ways, the Z7 is Nikon's best high resolution camera to date. It is likely their best video camera thanks to advanced features and good quality. However, it's not perfect. The buffer depths are not particularly impressive, the battery life is subpar and the continuous autofocus does not seem as good as the Nikon D850.AppleInsider90The Nikon Z7 camera is a future-forward mirrorlessThe Z7 is an impressive camera, with outstanding image quality, and support for a bevy of lenses. Nikon may be selling the Z7 now, but it clearly as an eye for the future. Adding support for 802.11ac, USB-C, the SnapBridge app, a brand new lens system, and a super high-resolution sensor make the Z7 a tough option to pass up.Some who aren't professionals may see the price tag as a bit high, but luckily the upcoming Z6 will fit them quite well.TechRadar100Nikon Z7 reviewThe Nikon Z7 may not be the prettiest camera, and it's certainly not cheap either, but it's still a formidable debut model in the Z system. With excellent image quality, great videos, lovely handling and a wonderful EVF, together with much-appreciated support for F-mount optics, Nikon has smashed our expectations with the Z7.TrustedReviews90Nikon Z7 ReviewOne of the finest cameras Nikon has ever made and a genuine alternative to Sony’s A7R III, the Z7 has more than exceeded our expectations of its first full-frame mirrorless camera.The Phoblographer80A Most Frustrating CameraAll in all, the Nikon z 7 isn’t a bad camera. It really isn’t. It’s just a camera that should have been released a few years ago.Stuff100Nikon Z7 reviewThe Nikon Z7 isn't especially exciting in this growing sector of great full-frame mirrorless cameras, but it's ease of use, stunning results and new Z series rangefinder make it a formidable contender.ePHOTOzine90Nikon Z7 ReviewThe Nikon Z7 delivers excellent image quality, and is a great full-frame mirrorless camera.
