What I am Doing Now (26 August 2022)
It came earlier than I expected. Yes, after 8+ years with Nikon D610, I just (and finally!) got Nikon Z 6II last weekend! 😃 I bought it locally at TK Foto (at SGD2675), one of my trusted camera stores here in Singapore. I also got the Z mount adapter (FTZ II ) to continue using my main lens, Nikon 18-35mm (f/3.5-4.5) for now.
I spent the weekend going through menu settings and trying to configure exactly like D610. Then, went out for my first blue hour shooting last Monday, but had some problems figuring out how to display grid lines, level indicator, and even how to switch to manual focus 😂 because certain settings aren’t same as D610’s. I googled on the spot and managed to figure them out, though. 😅
EVF was a bit odd, but I’m sure I’ll get used to it in no time. Otherwise, the learning curve is not steep at all, especially coming from the same brand. Last but not least, the sharpness is a tad better than D610, but not noticeable unless pixel peeping at 100%, which is understandable, as I’m still using the same lens. 😅
Anyway, I’m happy that I’ve finally moved onto mirrorless!
