Nikon Z6 vs Nikon Z7 – Comparison

Nikon Z6 vs Nikon Z7 – Comparison

Let’s compare the Nikon Z6 vs Nikon Z7. Our comparison table below covers all the important specifications of each camera.

Physically, both cameras physically look identical and weigh the same. However, Nikon is clearly targeting the Z6 and Z7 at different audiences, like Sony does with the A7 and A7R line-ups. We can say the Z 7 is the mirrorless equivalent to the D850, the Z 6 is more like a D750.

The Nikon Z6 is targeted as a general-purpose mirrorless camera. It comes with 24 MP sensor, 12 fps continuous shooting speed and 273 autofocus points. The Nikon Z7, on the other hand, is going to be marketed as a more premium offering. It has a 45.7 MP sensor that can push 9 fps and a superior autofocus system with a total of 493 focus points. Both cameras will offer hybrid autofocus systems, with both on-sensor phase detection and contrast detection AF.
