Nikon Middle East FZE recently announced that its full-frame mirrorless camera, the Nikon Z 6, and its high-performance standard zoom lens, the NIKKOR Z 24-70mm f/2.8 S, are the respective recipients of the EISA Camera of the Year 2019-2020 and the EISA Professional Standard Zoom Lens 2019-2020 awards, presented by the Expert Imaging and Sound Association (EISA).
EISA comments on the reasons the Nikon Z 6 was selected as the EISA Camera of the Year 2019-2020
With the Z 6 (released in November 2018), Nikon has made a superb camera with sensational handling and robust build quality that delivers excellent images in almost any shooting situation. Its autofocus system includes Eye-Detection AF, allowing accurate focus wherever the subject is placed in the frame. The large and sharp electronic viewfinder provides a truly accurate preview of how your images will turn out, while in-body image stabilization helps keep your pictures sharp with every lens you can use, including F mount DSLR optics. Quite simply, this is the best all-round camera that serious photographers can buy right now.
EISA also said that the NIKKOR Z 24-70mm f/2.8 S was selected as the EISA Professional Standard Zoom Lens 2019-2020. The NIKKOR Z 24-70mm f/2.8 S (released in April 2019) is a fast, professional standard zoom lens for the Nikon Z mount system. Solid and robust, it employs Nano Crystal Coat and the new ARNEO Coat to reduce flare and ghosting, while the front and rear elements have a fluorine coating to repel dust, oil and moisture. Thanks to a customizable control ring the photographer can easily adjust the aperture or exposure compensation, while an OLED panel on the barrel displays aperture, focus distance or focal length. With stunning optical performance that combines high resolution and attractive bokeh, this lens is the perfect partner for Nikon Z series.
The Nikon Z 24-70mm f/2.8 S is a high-performance standard zoom lens for full-frame (Nikon FX format) mirrorless cameras equipped with the Nikon Z mount. When used with a full-frame (FX-format) camera, the lens covers a convenient standard zoom range that begins at the wide-angle 24mm and ends at the mid-telephoto 70mm, all with a constant fast (bright) maximum aperture of f/2.8.
