In our Nikon Z7 II vs Z7 comparison, we break down the key differences of these two full-frame mirrorless models to help you decide if the newer camera is worth extra investment.

Coming just over two years after the original Nikon Z7 was launched, the Z7 II is an evolution of that camera, rather than a complete redesign. To that end, Nikon's opted to keep the design pretty much unchanged (with one key difference that we will get onto in a moment). That's no bad thing as we've always been impressed with the handling of the Z7 (and Nikon Z6 for that matter that also shares the same design), while Nikon's also not been tempted to tinker with some of the key ingredients inside either. There's the same 45.7-megapixel full-frame back-illuminated sensor that we saw with the Z7, while the ISO range of ISO64-25,600 (expandable to ISO32-102,400) remains the same as well.
