Ce 500 mm à lentille de Fresnel est gros comme un zoom 70-200 mm f/2,8. Il affiche de belles performances et un tarif étonnant — au bon sens du terme. À 4000 €, la facture est lourde, mais on pouvait craindre pire, les prix ayant tendance à s’envoler en ce moment, toutes marques confondues.

First impressions of Nikon’s new full-frame mirrorless system in the field, from wildlife and landscape photography perspectives. By Wes Pitts / Photography By Michelle Valberg and Adam Woodworth
In the months before announcing its new Nikon Z series full-frame mirrorless system, Nikon put the Z 7 camera and Mount Adapter FTZ in the hands of select Nikon Ambassadors to test pre-production models. We talked to two of the Ambassadors who had advance access to the camera— wildlife photographer Michelle Valberg and landscape and night photographer Adam Woodworth—about their experience and initial impressions working with the Z 7 and Mount Adapter FTZ with their F mount lenses.
Few photographers know polar bears like Ole Jørgen Liodden. On a detour to the more temperate climes of the UK, he tells Keith Wilson about his award-winning images, his 3D printing antics and the location of Nikon’s ‘deepest’ lens…
The Future Is Mirrorless
Like many Nikon Pros, Ole is intrigued by the new Z-Series cameras and lenses and feels it is only a matter of time before he takes the plunge and invests in one…
When more lenses are added to the Z series, will using the mirrorless system become more tempting for you?
Yes. I have the same feeling now as when I moved from film to digital in 2003. Of course, you can use an adapter, but I prefer to use the lenses that are made for the camera. It’s an issue for both Nikon and Canon, they have actually announced the future is mirrorless, and yes some of the users will start to use the mirrorless cameras.
For me, I am neutral as a photographer, but over the years I have had strong feelings and good experiences with Nikon, but there are no reasons for change right now.

Plus qu’un appareil photo sans miroir. Un appareil photo Nikon sans miroir.
Nous avons toujours eu la vision de créer des appareils photo et des objectifs qui capturent plus de lumière. Plus de lumière signifie plus de détails. Plus de vitesse. Plus de possibilités. Le Z 7 concrétise cette vision (et plus encore). Combinant les avantages d’une conception sans miroir légère, une toute nouvelle monture plein cadre révolutionnaire et des objectifs assortis, un capteur d’image de 45,7 mégapixels conçu par Nikon et une intégration facile avec le système DSLR de Nikon, incluant les objectifs NIKKOR que vous aimez, le Z 7 est un appareil photo comme aucun autre auparavant. Et pourtant, il s’agit bel et bien d’un Nikon. C’est un appareil photo sans miroir réinventé.
First of all, I would like to introduce myself: I am an Italian wedding photographer based in Padua who has used Nikon cameras for the past 8 years; and like many others, I was thrilled when Nikon announced their new mirrorless camera system. I could not wait to get one of the new models into my hands. When I was offered the chance to test the Nikon Z7 with the new 24-70mm f4 Z, I did not hesitate. I immediately organized a small photo shoot at a nearby lake and later also tested it during an actual wedding for a whole day. Here I want to share my experience and the insights I gained: Where I see the strengths and the weaknesses of the camera, and for which kind of photography I believe it works best.

Collaborations have always been in vogue. Be it cars, real estate, mobile phones, and even digital cameras, fashion brands are always keen to lend their name and styling expertise to companies. Hermes has been collaborating with Leica for a while now, so why not others?
How about Louis Vuitton partnering with Nikon? While there is no official word yet a photo has propped up on the Nikon Rumours website that shows the Z7 dressed up in Louis Vuitton. The top of the camera looks to be in covered in real gold and the rest of it covered it in the LV insignia. Could this be Nikon taking the high road to luxury or it is just the imagination of a photoshopper? We will know soon. Whatever it may be, it does look good.
