    Z7 first impressions

    I got the Tamron 150-600 g2 back from Tamron today. It took them a bit more than 3 days. The service performed was "complete overhaul, cleaning, and adjustment." That did not fix the Z7 issue. The note at the bottom was: On the bright side, I got a very clean and brand-new looking lens...

    Z7 first impressions

    I agree that this series likely showed something different than what I said. After looking at it for a while, what I think it better showed is that the d850 stayed locked on to the stationary bird without getting confused by the front of the bush, even though I was moving the camera around a...

    Z7 first impressions

    I've been following the diglloyd reviews and yes, he is not so impressed with the 24-70 Z mount. He is particularly interested in edge-to-edge sharpness for landscape work on tripod, sometimes with slow shutter speed. Other reviews (like Brad Hill) have said they think the 24-70Z is sharper...

    Just to make sure I was not wearing beer goggles when comparing the Z7 to the d850, I took the d850 out today with the same setup: 300mm f/4E + 1.4 TC and shot with the same 1/1250, f/5.6, auto-iso settings and AF-C 3D tracking. I shot CH, which is 7 fps (standard battery), compared to 3 - 5.5...

    I have spent more time with the Z7 and also compared to the EOS-R (I'll post the comparison in a different thread). I shot the 300mm f/4E with 1.4 TC (450mm, f/5.6). It was the best I could do with my tammy not an option. I'll be doing a more thorough review with sample photos on my website...

    I contacted Tamron about the 150-600G2 with Z7. They asked that I send in the lens for a 3-day warranty repair (plus shipping time). Marc

    Z7 first impressions

    The Z7 arrived today with F mount adapter, so I took a few photos and have a few observations. This is not a thorough or scientific review, I am just sharing some experiences with it. Ergonomically, the camera is petite and light. I find it is missing some controls that I like on the d850...
