Pros: Excellent dynamic range, great RAW files, a flood of features, construction, viewfinder

Cons: LCD not reclining vertically, few lenses (but excellent)

Opinion: After Canon 6D and fuji xt3 finally peace of mind. Excellent machine many functions to learn and exploit, excellent construction, very clear viewfinder. After 4 months of intense use I really consider it a fantastic machine. Right mega pixels and great RAW. Amazing shadow recovery and really great high ISO hold. With the kit lens really a great investment. It's not really as small as the full frame mirrorless and with a 20 € hand grip fits perfectly to me who likes to keep it in hand for good. Very fast in burst shooting and AF practically never in difficulty (even if I'm not a super expert). Few downsides. For example, the LCD screen is not reclining vertically. So many functions that it is difficult to keep up with it. Few but excellent lenses that in my opinion differentiate Nikon z from other brands, Nikon z has no bottle bottoms, the quality even in kit is excellent and you have the perception of always having something super professional in your hands. With adapter the reflex lenses works perfectly always. Some lenses are missing but if those in Road map come out and the third parties enter with z attack in my opinion it is the turning point. Maybe the real machine that is good for almost all genres and does everything well. Highly recommend

Pros: Construction, ergonomics, final yield, double slot, EVF and LCD, responsiveness

Cons: AF still to be improved

Opinion: I used the Z6 for a year and for a month I've been switching to Z 6II. I won't repeat the same things I said in the Z6 review, as the "general" benefits are the same. I'm just going to talk about the improvements. A revolution? No. It is an interesting upgrade that "corrects" the most obvious shortcomings of the first generation (first of all the double slot and the optional grip "serious" and not a banal battery pack, ah yes and banding in "limit" conditions) and improves some aspects (greater responsiveness, wide-area eye-focus mode and video etc., some additional "conveniences" in the menu). With the lenses not designed for speed (14-30Z, 35Z, 85Z) I do not notice great differences in the AF, but on the 70-200 FL the difference can be noticed as it is: significantly improved tracking and reduced lag. Of course, depending on the subject you always have to act on the parameters (sometimes it is convenient the car AF-C, other times the area modes). Also, with the new buffer we are on another planet and it does not spoil even the slightly improved burst. If the Z6 "gets away" with some sports photography situation, I would say that the Z6 II comes out (almost) with its head held high (provided that we study the situation and the settings well), although not excelling: the lag and the black screen do not convince me yet completely. Undoubtedly, the two Expeed 6s pave the way for further possibilities for improvement, let's not forget the not indifferent jump that the Z6 made with firmware 3.0. In the end it's just a matter of algorithms and I'd say the future-proof computing power is not lacking. In terms of compatibility with third-party products, I have problems with Godox flashes, my TT685 and V860II underexasure about 2/3 STOP and the 350N only thanks to a very recent firmware is back operational (albeit with the same subexposure), so we will have to wait for the ad hoc firmware for the Z 6II. With the SB-700 obviously no problem. With third-party lenses, I don't think there are any further issues than those already known with the Z6 (especially with certain Tamron/Tokina), I personally am using it with the excellent Sigma 105 macro OS and it works perfectly, focus stacking included. In any case, to avoid nasty surprises, check if you have potentially incompatible lenses/accessories. In terms of image quality and ISO sealing I do not know any differences from the Z6, although there are those who say that the dual processor offers a certain advantage. I can't tell you anything about videos, I don't do anything about them, but certainly the eye focus in such a mode is welcome news for videomakers. It comes with the EN-EL15C which has a higher capacity than the B, and you notice it (I had already bought a C for the Z6). Charging in the room, even during operation, is definitely an interesting function, but I do not use it because it is a "stress" to which I do not want to subject the camera electronics (I will be a little paranoid). In conclusion, I think the Z 6II is a good upgrade compared to the first generation. The main "problems" have been resolved and the gap on certain aspects (AF in the first place) with respect to competition has narrowed, but we will still have to wait for the full maturity of mirrorless Z. Who do I recommend the Z 6II to? Undoubtedly to nikonists who want to jump to mirrorless, for me it is the most versatile Nikon ML. Those who already have a Z6 must honestly ask themselves whether they feel "limited" by shortcomings compared to ii, if the answer is no, in my humble opinion there is no need for an upgrade. In any case, the II is a machine that does not disappoint, especially when combined with the excellent Z optical park (still deficient, but promising). Grade 10-.

Pros: Ergonomics, excellent performance at high ISO, use as an acceptable camera, double slot, satisfactory burst, excellent viewfinder, improved software.

Cons: High launch price kept up to the usual absurd Nikon discounts, display with reduced tilting, AF in the union minimums, excessive weight as ML, sensor not excelled.

Opinion: The photos taken at high ISO are great, but shout at the miracle, just not. From the sensor I would have expected something better, especially in the rendering of the shadows. The software, helped by the dual processor does what it can, but the physical limits are there, so much so that Nikon, in order to make high ISO files clean, has penalized the definition of the same. On the other hand I have not noticed any banding tracks, at least until now. It's not a fast car. For a sporty use of the camera I see it very hard. Luckily I still have my D500 which I didn't sell fearing just the above. I will also need it for videos, but I would not like to touch this sore button. For goodness sake, as Nikon has improved markedly, in video shooting, but the competitors (e.g.: Canon) are still too far ahead. Heavy, for me. Not excessively, it is still a FF, but I also have the Z50 which is a splendor, in terms of lightness in relation to the quality of the images and ... that is as light as you would like an ML to be. The display is great, but a little effort to improve the tilting that is still reduced, you could do. I mentioned in the counters the price: instead of keeping prices high and then starting with a discount that, frankly, excessively penalizes those who bought it at full price just before, it is better to set a fair price at the beginning, and then possibly start with discounts at least after a year from marketing. I would find it more serious and competitive with its competitors. I forgot to mention that with the adapter the F-mount lenses work perfectly, even those of third parties (eg: Sigma). Conclusion: as a loyal Nikon user I must say that the machine is very valid, well balanced in everything, apart from the excessive price (wild discounts aside). UPDATE: I confirm the usability of F-mount lenses using the Nikon adapter. I have three Sigma FF lenses and they work perfectly, including AF, of course. A few words about the use of the camera in AF, both in photos and with videos. One word: destabilizing. You expect the AF to always work in the same way (like the other brands), but it is not so, you search, you look for the most appropriate setting, when you seem to have found the optimal, you realize that you have lost a few frames, you find it lazy in the videos ... I have the impression that the software tries to overcome a deficit project at the start already with the Z6, excessively overestimated, evidently (given the results) by Nikon engineers. I look forward to (sic.) the next firmware update that should be relatively imminent, hoping that at least some obvious operational deficits regarding the functionality of the AF will be resolved. After all, hope is the last to die... Come on Nikon!

Pros: The silks of the Z6, the file in general (iso, GD, colors)

Cons: The only con for me remains essentially the AF in the various AUTO and tracking modes

Opinion: I'm not going to repeat what was already written for the Z6. I will confine myself to describeing the updates to date. The most obvious updates are essentially about eye tracking, although, as far as I'm concerned, with my 24-70 Z, the eye isn't detected until I'm 40 cm from my face.. with other lenses (portrait) I don't know. So I don't see the same improvement seen in the various videos on the net, where the eye is detected from quite a distance. I reserve the right to try it with other lenses. An improvement in tracking with the "yellow square" had been declared, but as far as I am concerned it has not reached, as the focus on the subject is lost almost immediately (as a pre-update). Only the speed at which the square moves has improved. For the rest I did not notice any major improvements compared to the "smooth" Z6. Yes, there's something... I in the action scenes, in nature, I feel quite well with the AUTO area AF, the shots are taken home (in the gallery I have several facts in that mode), but objectively the gap with the competition, in some areas there is. We hope for further improvements.

Pros: High ISO seal, intuitive menu, file quality, app, stabilizer

Cons: almost perfect machine, to want to find one I would say "important" dimensions for the ML concept

Opinion: First of all, I have to say that the Z6 II is my first digital after many decades of analog. Before taking the big step I studied a lot, I read your forum, I saw the machines in the store. I chose the ML concept first instead of DSLR because I understand that it is the future and because I already have three Reflex, albeit analog and my intention is not to replace them with digital but to support it. Then I chose Nikon for a fact wanting affective, because reading and hearing reviews in the end all the machines are more or less good and the users more or less all happy. I chosen the Z6II over the Z6 because it is still an evolution of an already excellent machine and the price difference has not fully designed me. Now that I'm finally getting there and I'm starting to get familiar with it, my considerations are as follows: Meanwhile the size, it's not a small car, it's bigger than my film SLRs and with 24-200 it's a lot of stuff, if you go around the city you can see it from afar and in the pocket of the jacket there is not even the only body, but I knew this having fiddled in the store with a Z6. I mean, if you want an ML because it's up to you the possibility of a machine in one hand, you buy an APSC or a micro 4/3. Then something that struck me, going from full manual analog to a Z6 II, impressed me with the ease of use, very easy menu, customizable settings with extreme ease and a very detailed manual (in English). The Z6 II takes fantastic photos, churns out JPG that need minimum PP has an excellent hold at very high ISOs and is stabilized in a way that I come from paleozoic film seems incredible. I have the impression that autofocus sometimes struggles a little under certain conditions, but I do not rule out the possibility that this is due to the fact that I still cannot use the multiple possibilities of using the function. In short, in summary, a machine that seems perfect to a paleozoic like me! Unique limit or rather unique awareness to have, the dimensions do not fit with the concept of handling and compactness of ml.
