    Nikon Z6 and Z7 mirrorless

    Thanks, it's my preferred of the series as well :) Sorry :) I've had the Sigma 120-300mm f2.8 Sport before, but the tracking was nowhere near this one...The sharpness at 300/2.8 was good, but the prime just takes it to another level. I've read reports that the Nikon 120-300mm f2.8 is even...

    The 300/2.8 as a walk around lens :) I just can't stop using it...sorry :) Scouting ahead by luftwalk, on Flickr Is that a deer?!? by luftwalk, on Flickr

    Nikon Z6 and Z7 mirrorless

    The lens was 1299 GBP used from Wex on a clearance price. I see they have another one in stock for a higher price though: https://www.wexphotovideo.com/nikon-300mm-f2-8-af-s-ii-if-ed-non-vr-used-1724544/ It's the AF-S II version, which is the lightest of all 300/2.8 Nikon made at 2.5kg with...

    Nikon Z6 and Z7 mirrorless

    I'd agree with you there @snerkler The 300mm with the 2x TC surprised me as well. I had a Sigma 120-300 f2.8 Sport and the 2x TC was not really usable there. Everything further than 10 meters out was mush at 100%. Tbh, I didn't expect this from a 20 year old lens...I'm actually contemplating...

    I was on a tripod, shutter speeds vary because I tried to keep ISO as balanced as possible...WB is a fault of mine, but it reflects how I shoot....auto WB, Manual with auto ISO. I felt it was the closest to real life expectancy I could get. I also feel the 300 with TCs is better, but the other...

    Also did a little testing and compared the 300/2.8 with TCs to the 200-500mm. Please, let me know what you think of the results. First the 300/2.8 with 1.4xTC at F4 (left) vs 200-500mm at 410mm and F5.6 (right) Now the same, just the 300 with TC at F5.6 Now the 300 with the 2x TC at F5.6...

    A couple with the 300/2.8 and the 1.4x TC. Definitely nothing wrong with that combo. Sharp all the way still. Catching dinner by luftwalk, on Flickr Waiting for dinner by luftwalk, on Flickr

    Nikon Z6 and Z7 mirrorless

    So, did a little more testing today, on a bigger field :) I have to say this lens is almost like cheating :) the quality of the images coming out is amazing. Tried various modes, Wide-S seemed to work best, but subject tracking wasn't far behind. On an open field like this it's very usable. A...

    Nikon Z6 and Z7 mirrorless

    Definitely...the fact that I can leave ISO on auto ISO to the max and expect decent results is definitely a game changer to me. Funny you should mention video...I've never used it before, now it's something I actively seek to fit into my shooting. The focusing is great as is the IBIS, the only...

    Nikon Z6 and Z7 mirrorless

    Yep, I had an occasion once when I borrowed from Nikon a D500 to use for the weekend. I shot it with my own Sigma 120-300mm f2.8 Sport and I did check shots and they looked good on the screen....but what I didn't check was that the magnification was set to 50% and not 100%. All of the shots were...

    The Z6 has astonishing high ISO...this is a 51200 ISO shot: Z6N_4969 by luftwalk, on Flickr When it comes to adapting AF-S lenses....I love 'em. The main reason...no more AF fine tuning. When it comes to portraits and your lenses suggest that, you'll be amazed how consistent focus will be. Eye...

    Did you check my post about it? https://www.talkphotography.co.uk/threads/nikon-z6-and-z7-mirrorless.688772/post-8703411 I would say to hold on for the native lens as well
