Nikon introduced the new 45.7MP Z 7 full frame mirrorless camera and a trio of Z-mount lenses today and Shutterbug was one of a handful of U.S. press outlets invited to cover the launch event in Tokyo, Japan. After the press conference, we got our hands on a pre-production Nikon Z 7 and Nikkor Z 24-70mm f/4 S lens and shot with it during a “touch and try” session offered to select journalists.

On the heels of the big announcement of its new Z cameras, Nikon introduced a trio of new lenses designed specifically for those full frame mirrorless models. The three new lenses use the new larger-diameter mount of the 45.7MP Z 7 and 24.5MP Z 6, which is designed to let more light in for improved edge-to-edge sharpness and better image quality compared to some competing mirrorless camera systems using smaller mounts.

There is nothing more invigorating for a zealous photographer than putting a brand new lens on a familiar, reliable DSLR body. The world looks different through a new lens, and the tableau of photo opportunities hits the reset button, refreshing all of the possibilities. My experience with Tamron’s new Tamron 70-210mm F/4 Di VC USD tele zoom brought this realization into focus, no pun intended.
