Frankly, prior to official release of information, I prefer little uninformed speculation about features, price, etc. We have too much prediction of the future based on few facts already! WAG has little value, SWAG as a bit of value, information has real value.

Expressing wishes does not influence what is in the starting gate already and soon to be unveiled, so it has little real benefit except for allowing expressives to wish out loud. :-)

Hmmmm, there was a huge unveiling live event by Nikon and there are videos and articles all over the internet with official everything.

Yeah... they were unveiled a couple hours ago. Kinda lack-luster. They spent a lot of time on making some striking video to make the presentations. Specs are decent. But, with cameras today having 2 card slots, I don't understand why Nikon skipped that feature. Plus, looks like 2020 before a few more lenses are released.

And only face-detect AF. No Eye AF like Sony.

Yes, but the thread was opened in the context of "prior to official release of information"! So I answered in that context. A friend of mine had sent information based upon a live webcast from Japan with translations in a lot of languages. But the Nikon USA announcement has yet to come, leaving precise US MSRP an unknown for a little bit more time. The Japan MSRP for the Z7 is not really exciting when converted simply to USD.

And 300 shot battery life.
DPR has a lot about the cameras, including a first impressions review.

They blow the Sony's away IMO. Only thing lacking is a dual card slot.

Well, that remains to be seen. One video I viewed noted that the Nikon offerings have a small buffer. The biggest reason for me to switch to Sony out of the Canon camp was the Eye-AF, 693 focus points and battery life.

Ive been shooting professionally for 15 years and two years as a hobbyist before that, so 17 years. Ive done well over 1k shoots using CF and SD cards, guess how many times I have had a card fail on a shoot...once. It was a cheap, garbage Kingston card I bought at a Frys because it was so cheap. I mostly use SanDisk and Lexar pro series, never once had an issue. Two card slots is overrated IMO and it certainly would never stop me from buying a camera I liked.

I don't understand why ALOT of people complained about the single card slot. How many times have your single slot cameras failed? If you don't want to miss your shots when replacing a new card, then get the 256GB card and stick in there.


Nikon Df, D810 - 50mm f1.8G Special Edition (Black), 14-24mm f2.8G, 85mm f1.4G, 200mm f2G VR II, 300mm f2.8G VR II
5D Mark IV - TS-E 17mm f4L, 14-24mm f2.8 ART, 50mm f1.4 ART, 105mm f1.4 ART
Fujifilm X100f, X-T2, X-H1 Grip, XF 10-24, XF 23 1.4. Sony A9 is calling my name.

Because it gives them something to complain about.

I agree. How many times has one card slot failed you?

In fact, why not have 3 slots? And use the wi-fi to broadcast to three or four external hard drives? Gotta make sure we don't lose anything.......:rolleyes:

My Canon 7D2 has dual card slots... One CD and one SD. However, all that I can do with the two slots is have one mirror the other for backup. I have never shot using two cards...

While this a great if a card fails (I have had only one fail = a Kingston which failed from the start). This setup doesn't allow me the versatility which the Sony 7Diii or 7DRiii allow with their two card arrangements. With the Sony if I wished, I could shoot RAW on one card and JPEG on the second OR I could shoot stills on one card and record video on the second. Of course, I could shoot with the second card mirroring the first.

As a guy who no longer shoots professionally, that form of two card set up on the Sony cameras would be more useful to me than simply a two card mirroring setup...

Not sure about stills on 1 and video on the other, but you can do the rest on your 7D2. I’ve always had mine set up for Raw on CF and JPEG on SD. Or you can set up to overflow from one to the other.
