Video: Ross Harvey hands-on report on Nikon Z7 and Z-mount 35mm f1.8 lens

Wedding and street photographer Ross Harvey was one of 12 Nikon ambassadors to get to try out the new Nikon Z7 mirrorless camera (opens in new tab) ahead of its launch last week. 

On the streets of Milan, Italy, was able to spend a few days trying out the camera with the 35mm f1.8 Z-Mount prime – one of the first three lenses using the new mount that will be released with the new Z7 when it goes on sale in September. 

In this video, shot handheld during the London press launch he gives his personal account of his hands-on experience with the Z7 and the Nikkor Z 35mm f1.8 S shooting candid shots of the Italian streets.
