New Z7
« on: May 25, 2020, 15:47:43 »
I had a moment recently! And a Z7 winged it’s way to my door, the idea being to have more elbow room for cropping and straightening and associated Image manipulation, my Z6 went in PX! Obviously the differences to the Z6 is mainly the sensor, handling and ergonomics are for all practical purposes are identical, but it seems to me that the Z7 is a bit faster in operation, there is nothing wrong that I found with the Z6 but the extra pixels are to me the reason for the upgrade it’s now up to me to exploit the extra pixels!
Quite subjective I know, but that is my impression so far. Seems snappier!
Of course I, benefit from all my lenses and accessories easily fit the new body.
Can’t really justify the expense, but what the hell you only live once! Plus I get the pleasure of getting acquainted with a new. Camera, always a pleasure!
All I need now is for my holiday to be confirmed for late July and I’ll be a happy bunny!

Same philosophy for me !

Just enjoy, Mike, You might discover some advantages, like (as you said) cropping images without to much loss of resolution, or pushing yourself into closer macro-photography and more, and why not printing you best images ?

Keep in mind this body is less forgiving in matter of focus accuracy.

I am thinking about to get one, but I kept already my beloved Df and  am reluctant to be a camera body collector... ;)

Do you keep your Z6 ?

Congratulations Mike, it is a great camera.  And yes, life is meant to enjoy ;)

I like to work with the pair together, Z6 and Z7. They both have their unique strenghts.

John I ‘m sure you are correct but hey ho I had to plump for one or the other! So I plumped for the Z7,  :P
