I recently picked up a Z6 and wanted to share my first impressions, similar to this thread from @Peeb last year. I purchased it from Adorama for $1844 with an FTZ adapter, with the intention of using adapted F-mount lenses until I get around to picking up some native glass. As of this post I have not had a chance to shoot with it yet, but figured I would use this as a running thread with my thoughts as I get up to speed. For reference, I am coming from a D500, which has a crop sensor, but solid build, and is an autofocus monster. Ergonomics My first impression is that this thing is really small, but feels solid Wow, the Z lens mount is huge! Feels good in the hand, familiar Nikon feel with a nice deep grip FTZ adapter Nice snug fit, autofocuses modern G lenses as well as any DSLR Why does the bottom protrude lower than the bottom of the body so it can't stand up now. What a strange design. This piece is an integrated tripod mount, but I can't imagine when I would want to mount the tripod to the adapter, rather than to the body or lens. Not a big deal, just an odd design decision. First time using an adapted lens I mounted a 50mm f/1.8G lens to the FTZ adapter and it works just fine It looks a bit strange, something that I guess comes with the territory of using an adapter It feels very front-heavy. I don't mind a heavy body as long as it feels balanced, but this is a smaller lighter weight body with the lens extended further out. Even something as lightweight as the 50mm f/1.8G feels a little unbalanced. I'm curious if it feels the same with native Z-mount lenses, particularly some of the longer or heavier ones. I'm also curious if the battery grip might help it feel more balanced, although I haven't heard many good things about the grip for Z6/Z7. Diopter adjustment This might not be particularly useful for most, but this could have been a deal breaker for me. I wear glasses, really dislike pressing my glasses to the eyecup, and haven't been able to wear contacts for a long time. I've always adjusted the diopter and added a correction eyepiece so I can see through the viewfinder clearly without my glasses. I asked in this forum. I asked my local camera shop as well as Adorama. I even contacted Nikon support. They all told me the same thing - the Z6/Z7 use a different eyepiece than SLRs, and the standard rectangular eyepiece accessories will not fit. There are no correction eyepieces available for their mirrorless bodies. As it turns out, all of them were mistaken - the DK-20C rectangular correction eyepieces fit just fine. I'm not sure if it interferes with the eye sensor just above the viewfinder, but it fits and it works. More importantly, the diopter range on the Z6 is wider than with prior DSLRs I've owned, going all the way to -4.0. This was actually sufficient for me, so the addition of a correction eyepiece was not needed. I just thought I would document that here in case it helps someone else, since I was unable to find this information elsewhere. Battery My biggest question right now is how long the battery will last compared to a DSLR. I've heard everything from a few hundred shots to 1000+ shots and still going at the end of the day. I understand it is more about how long the viewfinder is on than how many shots I take, so I'll have to wait and see how it goes. It comes with an EN-EL15b battery, which I understand is basically identical to the EN-EL15 spare batteries I already own, but can be charged via USB. Also, the Z6 does not include the USB charger and I don't plan on spending $60 for it, so there's really no benefit to to this as far as I'm concerned. It uses the same MH-25a charger that came with my D500 The first shot The shutter has a very quiet muffled sound. I guess a quiet shutter is one of the benefits of mirrorless, but there's just something so satisfying about the solid ker-chunk sound of a DSLR shutter. I'm sure I'll get used to it soon enough. That's about it so far. The one potential deal breaker for me was the diopter adjustment and availability of correction eyepieces, and both turned out to be non-issues. I'm excited to try out the eye-AF, and of course use some of my fast primes on a full frame body for the first time. Additional posts to come as I get up to speed.
