  1. You can see the pricing here: https://www.lensrentals.com/rent/nikon-z6 It is a pretty expensive rental, but, that's because it is brand new. I usually don't splurge and rent the 'latest & greatest', and I always buy used or refurbished equipment, but, I was hoping that the Z6 might be the hybrid camera that does a great job at both stills and video, so, I was anxious to handle one. Reviews are useful, but, the best way to know if a camera will work for you is to have it in your hands. I have a D750 that I use for my daughter's swim meets. I need a FF sensor since some of t
  2. Yes, it is great that Tamron is being so responsive. Alas, my 35/1.8 G1 is not compatible with their "Tap In Console" that allows firmware updating, so, it will probably never AF with the Z6.
  3. Hi. I rented a Z6 for this weekend. It just arrived so I can't say much about it, but, I can speak to the performance of two Tamron lenses using the FTZ adapter. 1. Tamron 15-30/2.8 (version 1) works fine in both stills and video. AF works as expected. 2a. Tamron 35/1.8 (version 1). No AF in stills. MF works fine, and the Z6 has a nice zoom button and peaking to allow precise manual focusing. 2b. Tamron 35/1.8 (version 1). Does not work in Video Mode, neither MF or AF. The Z6 loses its mind in video mode. The aperture jumps around willy/nilly and sometimes error messa
  4. Thanks for the great review and test footage Andrew. I don't have a GH5 (yet), but, I did rent a G85 for a week long vacation last April. I found the IBIS to be fantastic. But, when I watched some of the test footage from the GH5 that you kindly made available, it seems like the IBIS in the GH5 does not perform as well as the G85? Could there be any truth to that? Specifically, when I watched the "British Raindrops" clip, the stabilization does not seem to be very good? I realize it is a very tight hand-held shot, but I would have expected some of the shakiness to have been removed by th
  5. Andrew said: "In my opinion, one issue with the NX system is the mount. APS-C has fallen out of fashion as the camera market has pushed further forward into enthusiast territory. Cameras like the Sony A7 series, Nikon D750 and Canon 5D Mark III have continued to sell as the lower-end APS-C and compact camera market took the brunt of the smartphone revolution." I too believe that the mount is the primary reasons for the lack of sales of the NX1. I can say this as someone who came very close to buying one about a year ago. I'm still back in the dark ages of 1080p with my long-in-the-tooth GH3.
