Just visited Nikon"s website.  Took a look at the Z6 & 7.  Still no fully articuling screen.  Nikon is never going to get it right apparently.  Missed opportunity.  My opinion anyway.     


While a fully articulating screen is something that many will demand, I would not call this a "missed opportunity" by Nikon, based on the screen. The sites are being flooded with pre-orders that Nikon can't fill by the release date. They have already issued an "apology" to potential buyers and stated that due to the early response, they will be unable to deliver all of the Z7 and 500mm f/5.6 pre-orders coming in.

Re: No longer a rumor

Right off the bat, Canon is releasing a LOT of glass to go with the new R. They are dead serious about their shift to full-frame mirrorless. This has well-exceeded my expectations. 

 

According to CanonRumors:

  • Canon EF-M 32mm f/1.4 STM
  • Canon EF 400mm f/2.8L IS III USM
  • Canon EF 600mm f/4L IS III USM
    • The lens may have a different name, no confirmation yet.
  • M (or Mount) adapter R?
    • Since only “M.ADAP R” “M.ADAP R ND” “M.ADAP R PL” is written in the simple order form, the official name is unknown
  • PD – E1 is also included in the accessory list

The one that jumps out at you is the 28-70mm f/2L. (No IS, though.)
