In 2017, Nikon released what is widely regarded as one of the greatest DSLR cameras ever created: the D850. With the arrival of the Z 7II, has Nikon finally caught up with itself and produced a mirrorless camera that matches its mirrored predecessor? Check out this video to find out.
With the new Z 6II and Z 7II cameras, it feels that Nikon has matured its mirrorless full frame technology with the arrival of a second card slots and improved autofocus making them more viable options for professionals (assuming you can get hold of one). Nikon’s relationship with the DSLR remains something of a mystery, however; at the end of November we were reporting rumors that Nikon was planning as many as two more DSLR cameras, one of which would be an update to the D850. This would allow Nikon to squeeze a bit more juice out of its existing technology and cater to its many customers who are not ready to jump to mirrorless.
Whether these rumors prove correct remain to be seen as Nikon recently confirmed that it was discontinuing its two entry-level DSLR cameras: the D3500 and D5600. In addition, one of its executives told Japanese website ToyoKeizai.net that Nikon will now “concentrate on mirrorless cameras.”
Is the Z 7II the obvious upgrade from the D850? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below.
