Nikon NIKKOR Z 35mm f/1.8 S Aperture Series: Twisted Aspen Trunks, Evaluating Focus Accuracy in Dim Light

See my Sony mirrorless wishlist and Nikon mirrorless wishlist and Canon mirrorless wishlist.

Under most conditions the Nikon Z7 does a superb job of accurate focus in which the depth of field is centered around the focus point (though not always).

This series evaluates the ability of the Nikon Z7 to center the zone of focus at f/1.8, f/2.8, f/4 and beyond, a challenge harder than it sounds in dim light, what with the pronounced focus shift of the Nikon NIKKOR Z 35mm f/1.8 S.

* See the comments on compensating for focus shift in Sage, Aspen, and Waterfall.

Includes up to full resolution images from f/1.8 through f/13 with commentary on how well the Nikon Z7 did on centering the zone of focus where desired.

View the image below at full resolution on an iMac 5K. It is from the Nikon NIKKOR Z 35mm f/1.8 S Aperture Series: Sage, Aspen, and Waterfall. If your eyeballs don’t pop out of your head as to the quality, well then, get some glasses (or an iMac 5K).
