Tony&Chelsea Northrup do NOT recommend the Nikon Z because of poor focus and stabilization performance

The video on top from Tony and Chelsea Northrup shows how the Nikon Z is definitely NOT living up the hype. I think this is one of the biggest differences I ever saw between technical specs written on paper and the real world results. If I would be a Nikon shooter I would wait 2-3 years until the full lens range has been deployed and a more mature camera released before to buy into this system.

And now some genuine trolling: For years Nikon folks said Sony cameras were not serious because of the single card slot and now suddenly this is no more an argument for them….so please let me post this :)

Tony Northrup says Sony has probably a near two year “advantage” over the new Nikon and Canon FF mirrorless

Tony and Chelsea Northrup do believe than even if Nikon and Canon new FF mirrorless will be as good as the current A7-A9 line Sony is sill nearly two years ahead of them. The Sony A9 is 18 months old. At the time Canon and Nikon FF mirrorless will be available on the market Sony will be already close to a new Sony A9II launch.

P.S.: And they didn’t take into considertaion the already large Sony FE lens system :)

Sean Tucker: Why I made the Big Switch to Sony

Sean Tucker:

I recently made a total switch in my gear from Canon/Fujifilm to Sony. This video gives my reasoning and why the Sony system is best for my needs as a travelling hybrid shooter. I also give my thoughts on how we should be choosing gear in general, avoiding brand loyalty, gear snobbishness etc, and dispassionately choosing the right tool for the job.
