Nikon Z6 and Z7 service advisory due to problems with VR

Nikon USA published a service advisory for Nikon Z6 and Z7 due to problems with VR:

“It has come to our attention that the vibration reduction (VR) feature in some Nikon Z 6 and Z 7 cameras may not function fully.” and “Nikon has resolved this by making available corrective service for affected Z 6 and Z 7 cameras free of charge”

Nikons message: “I AM back!”

Even more noticable than the announcement of the new Z lens 14-30/4 is Nikons move to add three important features to the Z cameras via a firmware update:

  • Eye-Autofocus
  • RAW video
  • Support for the new CFexpress cards (doubling the potential speed)

This sends a clear message to potential customers: Nikon is willing to improve the Z line fast. Gone are the days where Nikon was very sloooow to react to customers – at least I hope so.
