Product Overview

Nikon Z7 is a flagship mirrorless camera in the Nikon Z-mount system. Introduced by Nikon in 2018, it comes with a full-frame sensor with 46 MP (8256 x 5504) resolution and a 3.69 million-dot EVF.
The camera has a poor battery life, and a second or third battery may be needed to get you through the day. It should be noted for having a 64 base ISO, which promises cleaner shots.
The Nikon Z7 comes with 493 autofocus points. Those who intend to use the Z7 for video work will be glad to find that the camera comes with 5 stops of IBIS.

The Z 7 has the best full-frame image sensor on the market. It records at 4K at 24, 25, or 30fps, and can utilize the full width of the frame. Autofocus is available, and in an upgrade from the D850, you can use a peaking focus aid.

  • Weather sealing
  • 5-axis stabilization
Cons

Reviewers from techradar have found the following***:
Vibration Reduction is located inside the camera, rather than in the lens. This system is said to be effective for up to five stops, and can work over five axes: roll, pitch, yaw and X an Y shift. The Nikon Z7's viewfinder boasts a 3.69million-dot OLED panel and an impressive magnification of 0.8x, supported by a 2.1million dot tilt-angle touchscreen.

Pros
  • 4K video recording

  • 4K recording
Cons
  • No secondary XQD card slot

Reviewers from digitalpicture have found the following***:
-70mm f/4 S Lens. As the lens is substantially less expensive in the kit (40% less at review time), it is a bargain. With the FTZ adapter, numerous other zoom lenses, most starting at 24mm, become good general purpose lens options. The Z 7's AF system is quite good, quite fast and with (mostly) good accuracy.
Find the original article here.
Pros
  • Excellent EVF
  • Excellent image stabilization
  • Fast AF system
Cons
  • No 3D tracking mode in AF-C continuous mode
