Five and a half months ago (March 4th to be exact) I placed an order for the Nikon Z9 mirrorless camera. I knew then that I was actually just getting on a waiting list and I had no idea when I would actually receive it. Well, it was delivered this afternoon. Getting the battery charged and setting it up was the first order of business and then I went out into my yard to test it out a bit. My yard subjects were scarce, a frog in my garden pond and dragonflies were the only living creatures to be seen in mid-afternoon heat. So, this is my first post from the Z9, a leopard frog chillin. I shot it handholding the Z9 with the Nikkor Z 100-400 zoom lens. I think this camera and I will become close friends.
