Good touch screen makes use more efficient and similar controls make the transition easier.

THIS IS NOT A BOX FOR A FRESHMAN TO PHOTOGRAPHY. It is a significant transition in photography and offers all that mirrorless photography can offer. I am looking forward to the challenge- having begun a 50 year plus career in 35mm film with a Nikon sp rangefinder. Multi camera use hanging on my neck is no longer in my future. The light weight of the Z7 and lenses designed for this box is welcomed by this senior pro.

For my purposes, which are primarily landscapes and larger, slower moving wildlife - this is a fantastic camera. Image quality on a par with my D850 in a smaller, lighter package. I have heard some griping about the single card slot versus dual, but the absence of doesn't affect me so I don't really care. I've never had to use the second slot in my D850 anyway (or prior bodies). If you already shoot with Nikon and have an inventory of Nikon glass, then this body or the Z6, plus the FTZ mount is a no brainer. The only caveat... If I was into shooting video I'd opt for the Z6 instead and spend the cost difference on a nice video tripod and fluid head.
Pros: Small, lighter, the future of Nikon I think.
Cons: None so far.
