It is very rare to see a camera covered both in the Editorial and on the magazine cover, but we are forced to make an exception. For decades, the name Nikon has been synonymous with the best in photography. Nikon’s F mount has remained unchanged for nearly 60 years. After all the speculation, Nikon has finally announced the Z6 and Z7 full-frame mirrorless cameras along with a brand new Z mount. At 55 mm, the Z mount diameter is larger than any other full-frame mirrorless mount. Existing F mount users can adapt their lenses to the Z mount via an adapter. A 3.7-million dot viewfinder, 5-axis image stabilisation and professional quality weather proofing complete the juicy specifications.
So, is this the end of the D-SLR or the beginning of the end? Well, we will stick our heads out and say that looking at the specs of the Z cameras, the future of Nikon is bright and the future is clearly mirrorless.
