    Do tell.....how does it differ compared to the Z6? If you can test AF-C in Extended FPS mode, I'd be grateful :)

    A lockdown walk with my dog in the neighbourly woods :) Curious how much of an improvement the Z6 II would be for these kind of shots...bigger buffer would definitely help, but I'll wait to see how AF stacks up...if it's a significant improvement I might get it. I heard her coming up behind me...

    The Sony probably does have an edge when it comes to AF-C and tracking in general, but that doesn't mean the Zs are incapable of action shots. Some from today, using a Z6 and an old F mount 300/2.8: Ajka by luftwalk, on Flickr Ajka by luftwalk, on Flickr Ajka by luftwalk, on Flickr

    @gilbouk I've had the Tamron G2 and I replaced it with a VR2 that I still own. The reason was that in AF-C and tracking the VR2 just ran circles around the Tamron. Tried on both the D750 and the Z6 bodies and I consistently had a lot more in focus shots with the Nikon than with the Tamron.

    Something a bit different from my usual photos of dogs.... Caught the mouflon peaking at me during my hike up a mountain and when I came to the clearing I happened upon a herd of fallow deer, which were really quite comfortable with me walking around and taking photos... Stalking me by...

    Nikon Z5

    Just want to say this is wrong. The Z6 offers 12 FPS with full AF and full AE. The FPS is one of the reasons I bought the camera. For my kind of shooting the Z5 is non viable simply because of that limitation. My camera lives in AFC and 12 FPS mode...in my opinion, the difference between the...

    I usually wouldn't post one after the other, but really like this shot of my dog...maybe a bit more room around it (it's a full frame), but it somehow jumps out for me. In the woods by luftwalk, on Flickr

    Nice BIF @Stephen L :) Jokes aside, nice photos, especially enjoy the first one. How does the 24-200 handle?

    Hey @gilbouk The 24-35/2 is a great lens, if you use it for stills only. If not, then you will need an external microphone since the AF is noisy and it will get picked up on the video. It's a big lens as well, weighs about 1kg and is basically equal in size to the 24-70/2.8. Apart from the...

    Two from me. The Dragonfly is a 100% crop...sadly the focus is so thin that the head is not really in focus... Dragonfly by luftwalk, on Flickr Gotta run! by luftwalk, on Flickr

    My 300/2.8 doesn't :) that's where I'd need it

    I know....I keep looking at the price and saying to myself I don't need it....if it had IBIS I would have bought it already though :)
