Former Nikon (Changes to R5 upon delivery)
- Nov 6, 2019
CFExpress is almost a bigger thing for me. Being able to unload cards that have 1700MBps read speeds and faster. And also having one format to invest in that has a future. IBIS might give my old 300mm f/2.8 non-is some new lif, a last hurrah for my first l lens that is pushing on 30 now. The video stuff I am sure some will find interesting but really that market is well served by the c line.
I can attest that the IBIS on Nikon Z6 really made old lenses work. From a Questar 700 mirror lens to a pre VR 400 f2.8 I could handhold even over 12 pounds to vintage manual lenses.
One caution is that it needs to know the focal length and vintage zooms won’t stabilize well as one zooms away from a selected FL.
