I wonder when the z5,6,7 grip and side bracket will be available outside of Japan. Fine things, but rationed for some reason.

My very new combo - Z7, 24-70/4, 70-300E-P. So the image with 24-70 - at 24mm, 5.6. Crop. Fantastically sharp and detailing optics, extremely fast to AF. Nothing in PP, just converting to JPG. The next - P lens at 300mm, wide-open - 5.6 - and crop. A very fast and VERY sharp one. The image - nothing special, but the crop! ISO 8000, 1/2000, VR on. Edited, to very little amount of intruding.  Please note, two settings for both lenses are most critical. THX!  LZ2021-03-22 025 by 2021-03-22 025-2 by longzoom, on Flickrickr.com/photos/longzoom/]longzoom[/url], on Flickr

I have to tell you if I saw "Nikon Original Goods" with different size fonts, I would think it was a knock off! Is that normal Nikon labeling? (I'm not implying it is a knockoff, just commenting on poor Nikon quality of the packaging which is normally top notch)

The FW updates released today installed flawlessly (speaking of Z6 and Z7). Indeed no voice memeo for the Z7  :(

Yes, it works ;) 

For the Z7 only the Save Focus Position is added:

They are for real, and very good too.

Yes, at last. Voice memo on Z6. Not the most intuitive approach as they obviously had no spare "hardware" button to use directly, so there is an extra round to make the feature available in the menu system. However as it might be, this works. Why Z6 and not Z7? No idea.

By the way, "Save last position" for the focus point works with any lens, not just native Nikkors.

What I did not like is that they allow mapping the voice memo function to a single button, instead of allowing mapping it to at least two buttons... So at least one has a choice, some other menu items are uniquely mapped to the REC button, and the selection of one option excludes the other.

I don't do video (with Z6)  thus there is no problem to me using the Movie button for voice memo.

Nikon should be able to offer this feature (through firmware upgrade) on many of their cameras.

This is not a review, just a heads-up that these things exist!
