We’ve all been wait­ing long enough, but it’s fi­nally here! 101 things about Nikon’s brand-new mir­ror­less sys­tem re­vealed

Long-ru­moured, much an­tic­i­pated, and lat­terly teased by the com­pany it­self be­fore the big re­veal, Nikon’s new mir­ror­less Z sys­tem is here.

The ar­rival brings Nikon more or less in line with its mir­ror­less com­peti­tors, whose own mir­ror­less sys­tems are now fairly es­tab­lished. While the range be­gins with two cam­era bod­ies, namely the Z7 and the Z6, and three lenses, more is promised over the up­com­ing years to keep Nikon users ex­cited.

The fact that these two pri­mary mod­els are de­signed around Fx­for­mat (full-frame) sen­sors should also make the tran­si­tion for en­thu­si­ast and pro­fes­sional users used to this for­mat quite seam­less. It is, how­ever, pos­si­ble that as the sys­tem de­vel­ops, there may be mod­els po­si­tioned on ei­ther side of these to en­tice a broader au­di­ence.

You needn’t worry too much if you’re heav­ily in­vested in Nikon’s cur­rent DSLR kit, as the com­pany has gone to great lengths to en­sure that ex­ist­ing kit is com­pat­i­ble with the new sys­tem. And if you end up want­ing to stick with your DSLRS, then you should find sim­i­lar com­fort in the fact that Nikon plans to con­tinue both sys­tems side-by-side.

But why, ex­actly, are there two mod­els? And what are the ben­e­fits of this new sys­tem? Nikon’s nowdis­con­tin­ued 1 sys­tem mir­ror­less cam­eras bought a num­ber of ad­van­tages over DSLRS, but what Nikon presents with the fresh line is some­thing dif­fer­ent en­tirely.

So, as the com­pany blows out the can­dles on its 101st birth­day cake this year, we thought we’d delve into the new Z sys­tem more deeply and find out 101 things that you re­ally need to know…
