    Re: Post Your Z6 Photos

    Congrats Tim. I think you'll like it. It will take a little acclimation from your D850 & 500.

    You've got some nice work on your Flickr page. Do you plan to use the Z at concerts? It's really good in low light / higher ISO.

    Also, the Z6 really rocks with the 300PF. I'll be eager to see some of your work with the Z.

    Thanks for the comments on my work....I'm not doing enough of it lately (life) but swinging back around.

    I was on the fence about the Z6 for months...had decided to wait for the follow up body but a couple things finally swayed me - the iso to dynamic range .vs the D750 I normally use is superior, and between that and $200 off the kit + a free FTZ adapter, decided just to do it. Glad I did. I'm pretty adaptable, and already used to the EVF and how it interacts with the touchscreen, and have been setting controls as close to my other bodies as possible.

    I am 100% planning on using it in lowlight/venue settings - and if I get the results I'm expecting my venerable D750 will finally get sold. I won't be shooting one of those for a couple weeks tho. This weekend we're glamping so it'll be lots of landscapes and a rodeo - the 300pf will be glued to the Z6 for that, the D850 will have my 200-500.

    I honestly haven't touched my D500 in months, so (pending results), along with the D750 and a couple lenses, it is getting sold off and the little J3 kit I have as well. I have too much stuff, so time to par it down to what I use.

    I'm a recent (1yr anniversary) Nikon convert, from Canon. When I sold all me Canon gear, I had full intentions of getting a D500, D850, TC's, all the standard lenses (including a 600F4). When I went to gather my new gear, my buddy at the camera store slid the 1st Z7 that had come to north TX in front of me and suggested I try it rather than the D850. At the time, nobody knew much about them and when I asked about focus modes, acquisition, & lock he assured me that it was "at least as good as the D850".

    Having already purchased a D500 & 200-500 (& ordered a 500PF) for my wife, I knew what I wanted with regard to focus characteristics. Her D500 was better than the 1Dx Mk II, 5DIV, & 7DII I had just sold.

    When I got the Z7 home & began to play with it, I was immediately underwhelmed by the exact things I had asked about - Focus Acquisition, Lock, & Retention. I played with it for a couple days & decided it was not going to work for me, as wildlife photography (particularly birding) is what I do most. Luckily for me, they swapped the Z7 for a D850 - no questions asked.

    As time passed & the Z6 came out, I paid close attention to what folks were doing with it and the results they were getting. One of my shooting buddies is a lifetime Nikon Pro & he's been doing some neat video work with the Z6 so I figured I'd give it a go. I actually like the Z6 a lot. It's a truly different shooting style & strategy, but it's quite capable.

    It'll be a long time before I'd consider not having either the D500 or 850 along, but I've been taking the Z6 out most of the time with a different FL than the DSLR so it's been a bit of a phased approach.

    Again, congrats on your Z6!

    Thanks again....I've got a ton from the rodeo I shot over Labor Day weekend. Used both my D850 and the Z6 - Z6 started with my G1 Tamron 70-200 (autofocus seems to be working fine on mine then I glued the 300PF to it...hopefully will get some samples up this week....still have some tweaks to do to my controls, etc but overall *loving* the Z6.

    Love the hummingbird photo btw....excellent work!

    Congrats on the Z6 it is a wonderful camera. I use mine at church photographing events and it is often low light. The Z6 grabs focus and can proved clean photos at much higher ISO numbers.

    Put the 200-500 on the Z6 and went for a walk with Jersey. Got a shot at a Cardinal Far a way. I just wanted to see how it would do... I had to crop a bit, but I was pretty happy with the hand held.
