We’ve known about the coming of the Z9 for a while now. Having a little history with the company, my gut told me that they had something mighty cool up their sleeve and it would rock my world. My posting a bunch of my F Mount gear for sale brought in a boatload of emails that I hope I can answer with this one posting. To sum up the emails, why am I going all mirrorless now? I think it’s unstoppable! (I ordered my Z9s from Bedfords and used my Discount Code Moose. You can do the same and pay the same price I did to add the Z9 to your kit!)
I think the photo above sums it up the best. As I told my friends this past week, I have to come up with a new phrase because astro blast doesn’t do justice to what the Z9 delivers. The Z9s amazing FPS is not the main reason for my switch, it is most definitely part of it though. It’s the signals from the specs that made the difference for me. High-efficacy Nefs, 1000 image buffer, AF down to -8.5ev, black-out free EVF are just a few of the exciting points for me. Being able to shoot stills or video without having to move your eye from the viewfinder, I love that. The biggest thing for me of all is the fact the Z9 is 20% SMALLER than the D6 (and costs less) fulfilling the promise of mirrorless of smaller, more quality at a lower price. And if that were enough, there are these factoids:
The most exciting thing of all to me is, we ain’t seen nothin yet! The photographic possibilities just went through the roof. I can’t wait until the Z9 is in my kit and I’m out shooting with it.
