Manny Ortiz loved shooting on the first iteration of the Nikon Z 6, but one of his big reservations was the consistency of the eye autofocus. He now has his hands on a pre-production model of the Z 6 II, so how will the autofocus cope in low light and shooting wide open?
The Z 6 II is falling into more and more hands, and fans will be delighted to see that early indications are good. Even those who don’t shoot on Nikon will be happy for the Japanese manufacturer’s new mirrorless cameras to match the pace set by the likes of Sony and Canon, as it makes for healthy competition and is a positive sign for the industry more broadly. Nikon doesn’t have the deep pockets of its competitors, and the last couple of years have been harsh, even before the global pandemic came along.
