Get the Z6 instead.
It's hard to find any reason why someone wouldn't get the Z6 over this camera. You save approximately $300 by getting the Z5 but you lose a lot more. First the Sensor in the Z6 is back side illuminated and gives better image quality, about half a stop. Second the Z5 doesn't shoot full frame 4K video...

Best cameras under $1500 in 2021
The Nikon Z5 is an excellent value for those who want the improved dynamic range (and image quality as a whole) and additional control over depth of field of a full-frame camera. The Z5 is a well-built mirrorless camera with a 24MP sensor and in-body image stabilization. It offers a high resolution ...

Identical to the Z6 in image quality
I bought the Nikon Z5 for the soul reason for it to be my main body for weddings. I needed the dual cards. I already have the Nikon Z6 for the past 18 months and it's a phenomenal camera. But the Z5 is a cheaper version of it and the image quality is identical in my opinion. I cannot tell the differ...

The Nikon Mirrorless For All of Us
Here's the bottom line on this model. It is the same Nikon quality you know, love, and expect at a much more attainable price point. It has dual SD UHS-II card slots, and uses the newest variation of the EN-EL15 battery from Nikon (EN-EL15c). I refuse to call it "entry-level." So if you have been on...

Best entry-level full-frame mirrorless camera: Nikon Z5 vs. Canon EOS RP
Well, we're back outside because from our rankings, the obvious winner, it's the nikon z5. It has won almost all the categories and really it makes a lot of sense. It's not that the canon esrp is a bad camera, but even when it first came out, it did leave a little bit to be desired, whereas the nikon z5 really is proving itself to just be one of the best entry-level cameras of all time

.NEF files.
I got this couple of days ago & wanted to let other fellow photographers that Luminar 4 will open the RAW images. Capture one still no go. I don't use LR. Latest version of Affinity Photo 1.8.5 will read the .NEF files as well. I'm enjoying this latest full frame Nikon camera.

Camera is unbelieveable.
This camera is the best. There is nothing to say negative about it. The 24-200 zoom is unbelievable. I am so glad that I bought it.

Perfect Intro to Z - For Stills Shooters
The Z5 has exceeded my expectations in virtually every way. It feels and shoots exactly like the Z6, but for a lower price, and with much lower cost and more readily available SD cards. I have not been able to tell a practical difference in image quality between this and the Z6, although the Z6 is a...

Solid feel, great value
EVF needs a menu option to control the time the EVF is active to the time it shuts off, once you pull your eye from the viewfinder. It takes about 250ms for the EVF to register an eye (or object) is near the viewfinder to the time it turns on the viewfinder. In most cases it is just a slight annoyan...
