Latest video by Morten Hilmer on assignment for Nikon - Svalbard using Z9 with 800 f5.6E FL and its bespoke TC1.25

lovely images and footage of a confiding Arctic fox

Well 800/f,6 (and TC 1.25) is one of the preferrable lenses to use a Z9 with. In this video he is also using a 180-400/4 which gives a perfect companion for the 800.

From what Snoogly wrote, anyone who can get into Nikon Towers in the Nikon Motherland can get hands-on time to play with a Z9.
Sounds like Akira or maybe Richard are also in with a chance.

Let the betting begin on who gets there first ;)

Here’s a webinar with Ricci talking about the Z9, 100-400, 24-120, Angelbird cards, etc:
https://youtu.be/Do7JDQhEw9o

The Austrian company Angelbird is testing their cards with a Z9 for maximum compatibility and speeds. They also recently introduced a new made in Austria USB-C 20Gb/s CFexpress reader which should be compatible with all USB and Thunderbolt devices; https://www.angelbird.com/prod/cfexpress-card-reader-mk2-type-b-2877/?category=241

Ricci claims btw that the 100-400 is sharper than the 500PF when cropped to the same FOV :o
Cheers,
Jan Anne

Thanks for sharing this discussion.

Well, many who following this thread and the new flood about Z9 will find Ricci has covered much of the material here (as have other writers etc). Nevertheless, IMHO he confirmed - underscored in fact - many key points. These features included for my planning etc EVF (no blackout / adjustable brightness to get close to OVF), 2-eyed shooting, Bird AF, IQ of RAW files compared to Z7 and several other top-tier specs - the new 14bit RAW image formats especially.
And again we hear the AF performance with FTZ I is excellent for widely used F mount telephotos Ricci has tested... IMHO this confirms absolutely ZERO worries about adapting AFS glass using a FTZ (again nothing new for those who have relied on their FTZ with the existing Z cameras).
Above all, it is clear Nikon have designed a cutting edge Pro camera in the Z9. With all the new Z mount and 94+ F AFS Nikkors all the options are almost endless. So many choices get confusing (fiscal reality permitting obviously).

And we wait.... the countdown continues to using this new AF system in the wild.....
