Has Nikon Just Smashed It out of the Park With the Z 5 and New Compact Zoom Lens?

If you’re a budget-conscious photographer looking to buy a full-frame mirrorless camera in August, you should probably just buy the new Nikon Z 5. For the money, it looks amazing.Nikon truly hasn’t cut many corners in its efforts to deliver customers an affordable, lightweight stills camera (read the announcement here). At just $1,399, the Z 5 packs a huge amount into an incredibly compact body. Essentially, they’ve taken the best bits of the Z 6 and Z 7, ditched the XQD card slot in place of a pair of UHS-II SD slots, and thereby rectified the lack of redundancy missing from the Z 5’s bigger brothers.
