Tried a few shots in the back yard today with my 200-500, 5.6 lens using the FTZ adapter... at 500mm/5.6 & handheld.. I was rather impressed with these few.. I used the 'pin' focusing on the little statue and that is quite sharp.

Then a commotion in the tree ... a few sparrows squabbling amongst the branches... single point focus and very heavily cropped.

Set to auto ISO with 'faster' for the lens focal length.So higher shutter speed, IBIS + VR...  The Z7 seems pretty impressive :rolleyes: :)

Looks great. I have yet to get a test in with it.


Thanks, Dennis.

Going very well Art.. the light weight is very noticeable.. took it for a long walk in the hills the other day, only with the 24-70 f4, but definately easy to carry. Image quality is very good. From my few shots using tracking at the softball the other day I noticed that the tracking focus didn't keep up with the faster runners,running towards the camera... but I can't say whether that it was worse than my 'old '850 :rolleyes: ... because looking back at some tracking photos taken with the 850 they weren't any better, albeit the samples I checked were of cars on the track which of course were moving a lot faster. I definately think that if you want fast focus tracking only the single digit Ds'(3,4,5) can do that job successfully. But for my main shooting uses I have a light Df weight 850...which strangely, both bodies (Df and 850), were used in the trading for the Z :wacko: . Oh and snapbridge works even better than the 850...bluetoothing the 2mp shots to phone no problems(as with the 850)..But wifi remote control seems to work every time you ask for it  woohoo. I am not sure whether the reports that IBIS and VR work together as some suggest... when you put a VR lens on the menu for VR is greyed out... but the status of the VR switch on the lens is shown (on or off..Std or Spt)...the VR menu is lit ok when a non VR lens is present...so IBIS is doing the VR-ing then. :mellow:

Glad to hear it, Peter!

 

Action coming towards you is really tough to photograph.  I find it difficult under any circumstances.

 

Glad to hear the software has improved.  I have tried out Snapbridge on my iPad.  I didn't have any issues with it.  Problem with continued use is my iPad has limited memory, so don't do it often.  Maybe try it on the phone.  Glad to hear they are working on their software because they are now well know for awful software!

Look forward to seeing more images! :)
