Coming this week! Nikon Z6 vs Canon EOS-R!

Hello all! Hope everyone has had a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday and a great start to December! I have been using both the Nikon Z6 (With 24-70 and 35 1.8) and Canon EOS-R over the last couple of days and will have a look at them both in the next few days. Just wanted to give a heads up as to what is going on and what is coming up. I will test video, auto focus, picture quality, usability, ergonomics, etc. Sure many have done this already but being an owner of the EOS-R (Which I bought before testing the Nikon Z6) it should be interesting to see ; ) I will have photo and video comparisons. Also, this coming up weekend I will be shooting the newest Sony G Master lens, the 24 1.4 in Sedona with a few photo friends. I will have a report on that as well (Photo and Video). Also, a look at the 35 1.8 Canon RF lens is on the way as well.

Finally look for a crazy camera bag sale here at the site VERY soon! Debby says we need a closet back and that I need to unload the 40 bags I have housed in it, so I will be selling 20-30 bags at deep discounts from retail by the end of the week, most of them brand new, and 80% of them are premium so check back here this week for some crazy deals on some amazing bags. Finally I will also be reviewing something new this month (pretty cool) that no one even knows of yet, so lots to come in December!

Thank you all and Stay warm!



  1. I should add: My 50mm 1.4 AI-S is really lovely on the Z6. The image looks better than it does on a D600 or SOny, and it better IMHO than the 24-70. BOth are sharp but the 50 has an extra snap and richness on the Z6, the sensor seems to really like this lens.

    It would be nice if the meter display worked with it.

  2. An issue I am having on my Z6 is that the camera turns off the meter display when using a manual lens, AI-S or other brand, and using Manual Exposure. The histogram still works so the camera is usable, but it would be nice to have the meter display.

    Have you tried any manual lenses? Do you agree that the meter display would be nice to have?

    I have contacted Nikon and so far they just say the meter display only works with CPU lenses.

  3. They really are pulling the XBox/PlayStation strategy on these. Hardly a coincidence to come out within a week of each other.

  4. I would love to know how this camera works with adapted lenses such as M-mount lenses by Leica, Voigtlander and others. I suppose that cannot be a part of this test, but do consider it for the future. The Nikon is rumored to be better than Sony, and in some cases better than Leica?

    Of course it will take a bit of time to get the adapters.

  5. I predict the Nikon will be the better camera, but Canon has the lenses that Steve likes best.

    Its the lenses that matter, even if the camera is just “Ok”.

  6. This is a very key comparison and many of us are looking forward to hearing your honest opinion. Thank you for doing this review for us 😉
