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.

One of the products that flew under the radar when Nikon introduced the now widely acclaimed D850 DSLR about a year ago was the Nikon ES-2 Digitizing Adapter ($150), which works in concert with the D850 to turn 35mm slides and negatives into digital images. We haven’t gotten a chance to try it ourselves, but photographer David Flores has, and in the below video he gives you a step-by-step demonstration of how it works.

Q. What is the latest regarding the problems with the Nikon D750? I bought one of the bad ones and am getting ready to send it back for the third time in hopes they can fix the fuzzy, black, thumb image at 6 o’clock that consumes about 40% of the bottom middle of my shots. This happens intermittently but frequently enough to have ruined both wedding and vacation shots. If I purchase a very recently manufactured D750 will I be OK? Thanks! By the way, I love your column and your well-written, easy-to-understand answers.
