The cat’s out of the bag with the new Nikon Z7 and Nikon Z6 to accommodate bigger lenses that have higher optical performance.
Yes, that first sentence and title may sound a tad crazy, but the way Nikon sees it, the Nikon Z 7 and Nikon Z 6 represent the philosophy that bigger is better. They’re not really alone either. Look at what Sigma has done with their 85mm f1.4 Art lens and the 135mm f1.8 Art lens. Plus, look at Nikon’s own 105mm f1.4 G lens. Indeed, when Nikon went about designing the Nikon Z7 and Nikon Z6, they had future lens design in place. One could argue that smaller is better when you look at some of the smaller Sony prime lenses and those from Zeiss out there. But instead, it looks like the mirrorless world may be getting big again if Nikon has their way.
