    Nikon Nikon Z 6II --- a good idea or rather wait for newer releases?

    A local camera shop has put a used Nikon Z 6II on their birthday sale list and I'm sure it wont be there for very long - so if I want it, I will need to hurry. I currently have a Nikon Z fc, and adaptor and a truck load of F-mount lenses (and dSLR bodies), so this is tempting. BUT ?? Would you...

    Nikon Nikon F4 viewfinder thread - DK-19 fit like a DK-2?

    Picked up a Nikon F4 a few months back and now I'm keen to run a roll through it. View-finder is missing the rubber ring on the eye-piece - those actually seem pretty rare and pricey. But I'd be happy with a DK-2 (also seemingly rare and pricey). DK-19's seem to have cheaper off-brand options -...
