Nikon has always been a trusted brand in the photography industry, and the recent release of their Nikon Z9 camera and lenses has only solidified their position. As a photographer, I have always relied on the versatility of zoom lenses, but with the new Z system, I can now confidently say that most of my jobs can be done with just three lenses: the Nikon 100-400mm, 24-120mm f/4, and 14-30mm f/4.
Gone are the days when I had to carry a bulky kit of lenses to cover different focal lengths. These three lenses provide a versatile range, from 14mm to 400mm, that can handle various shooting situations. The sharpness of these lenses, especially compared to their f-mount predecessors, is a significant improvement that has made a big difference in my work.
Of course, I still keep a few prime lenses, like the 85mm f/1.8 and the 35mm f/1.4, as they provide excellent image quality and offer a more shallow depth of field. But for events, I now have a much smaller selection of lenses that can handle everything from intimate wedding shoots to more significant events like sports.
The versatility of the Z system has allowed me to simplify my gear, and I appreciate Nikon’s continued innovations in this area. As technology advances, I believe it’s essential to evaluate your gear and make changes as needed. By replacing older lenses with new ones, I have been able to stay up-to-date and get the most out of my gear.
In conclusion, the Nikon Z9 and its lenses have been a game-changer for me, and I highly recommend them to anyone looking for a versatile and sharp camera system.
