I just got back from Kenya, with my Nikon Z7II on its first trip, along with my D500. In Brazil I had my D850 and had pushed it up to iso 10,000 with good results, so I decided to test out the Z7II, which is suppose to have the same sensor. This leopard, in Samburu National Park, decided to move from its sleeping tree to its tree with its kill only after the light was very low. So I decided I either push up the iso or not take the shot. To get any kind of shutter speed while it was walking, 1/200, I had to go to iso 16,000, f/5.6, using the Nikon 300 f/4 PF lens. I did use Topaz Denoise and did what I always do which expose to the right. Not too bad I think.

Take care
