Welcome to my Nikon Z7 photo gallery (real world sample images. test pictures, etc).  After moving away from Nikon DSLRs and going to mirrorless cameras, I never quite had the same affection for those cameras as I had for my Nikon DSLR cameras.  I'm happy Nikon finally has a full frame mirrorless solution AND also happy that their first generation (Z6 & Z7) is already very well refined.  The Z7 I have is extremely well built, feels great in my hand, has wonderful image quality, the best EVF I've ever used (at time of the Z7 release, even compared to my former Sony a7R III), an excellent high resolution rear LCD touch screen, display on top to view basic settings and excellent in-body image stabilization.  I am very, VERY happy with this camera.  I am finally at peace with my camera and feel at home again.  By the way, the 24-70mm f/4 S 'kit lens' is absolutely outstanding!  It's a steal at $600 with the body.  Super sharp, fast/silent focus and gorgeous bokeh!  By the way, I also have a Nikon Z50 gallery,Nikon Z5 gallery, Zfc gallery and Z7 II gallery.

I have some full resolution Z7 test photos (including Z7 w/28-300 & 85mm f1/8 G samples).   I posted a video of my thoughts on the Z7 on YouTube as well as some of my settings

Total weight of the Nikon Z7 with battery and 24-70 f/4 S lens attached is 2 lbs, 11 oz.  By the way, Nikon released firmware version 3.0 in Feb 2020 which improves the process of how you use AF tracking (video).  

2.5 years with the Z7 (May 2021 now), I'm still in love with this outstanding camera.  Unless you need a sports camera with the AF that goes along with a camera like that, this may be the camera for you.  Don't be afraid of negative comments you read in the camera gear forums because many of those anonymous folks have an agenda, they're brand lovers or they have very specific photographic needs/wants that probably don't apply to you and 95% of everyone else...AND their comments might be out of date/no longer relevant due to the ongoing firmware updates/improvements Nikon has made to the Z7 which now includes (Feb 2020) improved AF tracking control and cat/dog Eye and Face AF.  Thanks for visiting!

May 2022:  I have replaced my beloved Z7 with the Nikon Z7 II and I also shoot with a Fuji X-H2 (as of late Oct 2022).
