Confirmed: the sensor inside the Nikon Z7 camera is made by Sony

Confirmed: the sensor inside the Nikon Z7 camera is made by Sony


Over the years I have been trying to keep a list of all Nikon cameras and their sensor manufacturer/designer (the list has been updated several times). The website Tech Insights offers some searchable resources on sensor manufacturers:


The sensor inside the Nikon Z7 for example is made by Sony (IMX309BQJ) and so is the D500 sensor (IMX321).

Nikon executive: “for the time being, we will concentrate on mirrorless cameras”

Nikon executive: “for the time being, we will concentrate on mirrorless cameras”


In a recent interview, Hirotaka Ikegami (Nikon Managing Executive Officer, head of Nikon Imaging Business) said that “for the time being, we will concentrate on mirrorless cameras.” Nikon already sees some recovery starting in China.  The interview does not offer any other interesting information worth reporting here – it’s just a reteriation of Nikon’s financial results form there past 12 month and discussion of he difficulties the photo industry experienced on 2020. Here are a few points from Digicame-info (Google translated):

Nikon hastened to reduce personnel and reorganize production bases, but the key to reconstruction is not cost reduction, but recovery of sales.In April, the number of interchangeable lens cameras sold decreased by 80% from the same month of the previous year, and the first quarter (April to June 2020) was really difficult. However, starting with China, the world market is recovering faster than expected.The EVF manufactured by Nikon has very good performance and is highly evaluated compared to other companies. There is also an evaluation that it is indistinguishable from the OVF of a single-lens reflex camera, which leads to confidence.

Canon executive: camera shipments can drop below 10 million units

This week some clickbait websites decided to report that Nikon is done just like Olympus based on old financial results from last year. A quick reminder that Olympus was loosing money for over a decade before they went under #fakenews pic.twitter.com/nSTDUHvMzx

→ A reader send me a quick feedback on the new Viltrox 85mm f/1.8 Z full-frame autofocus lens for Nikon Z-mount (buy at: Amazon USAmazon UKAmazon CA):

“Got my Viltrox 85/1.8 for Nikon Z cameras. I tested it on my Nikon Z6 II and it works fine. Tested it agains my Tamron 85/1.8 VC with the FTZ adapter. The Tamron hunts but is fast. The Viltrox doesn’t hunt but is some times slower. The Tamron had sometimes hard to nail the focus but the Viltrox nailed it every time. The area of sharpness seemed to be narrower with the Viltrox at 1.8. Will continue to do test and see if I will sell the Tamron.”
