After a long, long nap DXOMark are back at it, and they have started off with a bang. The Nikon Z6 is the first camera that has been tested by these guys for a long time, and apparently it will be the first of many as we go forward through 2019.
When Nikon first announced the Z6, we were certainly hoping for a camera system that would blow us away. Instead, what we got was a camera system that felt half-baked at best. Coming into the mirrorless marketplace five years later than the competition, you would expect Nikon to avoid pitfalls that have plagued competing camera manufacturers, but the reality is they seem to be making a lot of the same mistakes.
When Nikon first announced that they were finally entering the Full Frame Interchangeable Lens Mirrorless camera market with the Z6 and Z7 back in August of this year, only the 45. 7MP Z7 was initially available.
Last week, I went out on a limb and pre-ordered the 24-megapixel Nikon Z6, which should ship on November 30. It is a bit of a flyer, but assuming my instincts are correct, the camera will replace my second body, my D750.
