    new firmware 2.0 AND a recall for your Z6 and Z7...


    It's not only the joy of a new firmware...
    Piece of cake to update a Nikon camera.
    Eye AF is working...

    But now also a recall for your Z7 and Z6:
    I checked my Z7 at the Dutch site, I won't have that problem (yet?).
    Check yours.

    I checked my Z6 and it is not in the recall. I hope it is something simple that they found. Even those that were caught up in the recall were saying that they saw no issues with their cameras. I am cautiously optimistic.

    I monitor a lot of Nikon oriented forums and have yet to hear of anyone having a problem with their IBIS. Several sent theirs in and had no work done, just checked and cleaned. But one posted the repair order that said they replaced some module, without being specific, then cleaned and adjusted. I suspect that the issue was a supplier of a subassembly had delivered a suspect few that did not fully meet spec but there was no indication of how many were actually underperforming so had to check all the cameras sent out from the time period. They may have been overcautious and opened the company to bad press by the many paid influencers who are targeting Nikon, making things up or just misstating the facts. There is big money flowing to those who can drive sales to a company and who can drive sales away from other companies.
    I figure that anyone who really needs some non-photographer youtube personality to tell then what to buy is probably not ready for any new model. Believing some of these youtube personalities means they deserved to be misinformed.
