Big Performance. Small Footprint.
One of the major benefits of the Nikon Z7's thin 16mm flange back distance is that cameras can be made smaller and lighter. The Z7 is 26% lighter than the Nikon D850, yet it maintains outstanding handling and balance, even when using telephoto F-Mount NIKKOR lenses. It's as comfortable to carry as it is to shoot with.
Flagship Nikon Durability.
A skeleton forged from ultra-strong Magnesium Alloy, the same material used in the D850 and D5 for its extreme durability and incredible strength-to-weight ratio. The same brake mechanism and shutter blade material used in the D850, tested for 200,000 cycles while actually loaded in the camera. The Z7 is ready for the field.
New Nikkor Z Lenses
Outstanding optical performance is realized by employing an aspherical ED glass element and three aspherical lens elements. Featuring optical design that minimizes various lens aberrations across all focus distances, a frequently used focal-length range covering 24 to 70 mm, and a constant maximum aperture of f/4 throughout the entire zoom range, this lens can be applied to a wide range of fields and subjects. Sagittal coma flare is effectively reduced to ensure exquisite point-image reproduction of point light sources despite being a zoom lens. The easy-to-carry, lightweight body employs a retractable lens mechanism, resulting in high portability and superior operability that can reliably capture precious moments.
While realizing quiet, high-speed and highly accurate AF control via the adoption of a multi-focusing system, this lens achieves superb rendering performance and suppresses aberrations to the maximum possible extent. The employment of two ED glass elements effectively compensates for axial chromatic aberration, while three aspherical lens elements effectively suppress sagittal coma flare for superb point-image reproduction of point light sources even in the peripheral areas of the frame. It also delivers the soft and natural bokeh characteristics that only a fast lens can offer.
Outstanding resolving power enables the reproduction of even minute textures across the entire frame. Axial chromatic aberration is effectively reduced through the employment of two ED glass elements, while three aspherical lens elements effectively compensate sagittal coma flare for superb point-image reproduction of point light sources even at the maximum aperture. The natural and beautiful bokeh characteristics that only a fast lens can achieve are provided even at short focus distances. In addition, a powerful, newly developed stepping motor enables outstandingly quiet and accurate AF control for both still and movie shooting.
The Mount Adapter FTZ allows Nikon D-SLR photographers to continue utilizing the outstanding performance of their NIKKOR F lenses seamlessly with the new mirrorless camera system. Approx. 360 NIKKOR F lenses are compatible* with the FTZ, including 92 AF-P/AF-S/AF-I lenses that enable shooting with AF and AE.
493-Point Hybrid AF System
Focus on what matters.
493-Point On-Sensor PDAF 4932 on-sensor AF points cover 90% of the frame (approx.) horizontally and vertically. Subjects are acquired quickly when they enter the frame and tracked throughout the frame, even to the far edges.
New Hybrid Autofocus Using an AF algorithm optimized for its FX-format sensor, Z 7 automatically switches between focal-plane phase-detect AF and contrast-detect AF to fine-tune focus. The light-shielding phase detection pixels are carefully arranged on the sensor to preserve light, ensuring accurate AF even in dim lighting.
New Subject Tracking Whether shooting eye-level with the EVF or in Live View with the LCD, Auto Area AF smoothly tracks your subject. When shooting portraits for example the system pays attention to the upper body, too, maintaining focus position when your subject briefly turns away from the camera or moves out of view.
In-Body VR Image Stabilization
Up to 5 Stops of VR Image Stabilization
Powerful in-body 5-axis VR image stabilization is applied to whatever NIKKOR Z lens you’re using. Up to five stops3 of image stabilization in up to five directions—yaw, pitch, roll, X and Y. During video recording, optical VR is combined with electronic VR (e-VR) for even steadier shots. Normal VR mode for static subjects. Sports VR for moving subjects.
VR for F-Mount NIKKOR Lenses
For the first time, F-Mount NIKKOR lenses like the AF-S NIKKOR 105mm f/1.4E ED or AF-S NIKKOR 14-24mm f/2.8G ED can benefit from in-body 3-axis VR.4 NIKKOR lenses that already have VR, like the AF-S NIKKOR 70-200mm f/2.8E FL ED VR, get the added benefit of roll axis for a total of 3-axis VR. Just add the optional Mount Adapter FTZ and you’re good to go.
