I’ve been testing my old Nikkor 18-200 mm f/3.5-5.6 lens to see how it holds up against the trinity f/2.8 lenses I have. It’s a poorer lens, but the idea is to see if I can shed a quick pound or more and still get by during ad hoc travels or in a cemetery. The old lens is a DX-type, meaning that the Z 7ii shoots with a resolution lowered to something like 5400 x 3500 rather than with its native (FX) resolution of about 8300 by 5500. For the purposes I’m testing for the difference would not be important. All shots were hand-held, ISO up on most of them to keep exposures short and as blur-free as possible. The vignettes are all edited.
