I have been shooting Nikon since 2016. My first Nikon was the D500, and I still love this camera. It’s fast, handles low light very well for a DX sensor camera. In 2021 I purchased a Nikon Z6II and fell in love. While the focus may not be as quick as the D500 everything else about this camera blows the D500 away. I often carry my D500 with me for close up shots at games and events, and I feel like I have stepped back in time when I put my eye to the optical viewfinder. The Z6II, and mirrorless cameras, in general are the future of photography there is no doubt. I am on the waiting list for the Z9, and really can’t wait to get my hands on this camera!
Where do I start? I guess the best place is a look at my gear list on at DPReview
I have a little bit of everything from supertelephoto to wide angle primes. For sports my go to is the 300mm/F2.2, for Astro the Iris 15mm/F2.4 is really nice. I really love the Nikon 24-70 F/4 S lens for just a great all around lens. It’s always in my bag no matter what I am shooting. A new one that I also never leave home without is the new 40mm F/2 Z lens. I love the depth of field you get from this lens. I can’t wait to see what Nikon continues to release in the Z Lineup. The 400mm F/2.8 is definitely on my radar!
I am currently packing up my gear in a Vanguard Veo Select 49. This bag is great, and I can pack both camera bodies and 4-6 lens in it.
