Nikon Z6 II DxOMark Review: Familiar sensor performance (94 Points)

DxOMark has completed their full review and test results of the new Nikon Z6 II – The Nikon Z6 II achieved an excellent overall DxOMark sensor score of 94 points, with a combination of 24 bits color depth, 14.4 EV dynamic range, and 3303 ISO low-light score.

  • Intelligent Eye-Detection AF

Conclusion from DxOMark:

While it’s good to see Nikon moving forward with its second-generation models, the sensor performance of the Nikon Z6 II hasn’t really changed a great deal over the original. As a state-of-the art 24 MP BSI CMOS sensor, it was already an excellent performer. What’s more interesting perhaps is that while Nikon and Sony share similar sensors, there isn’t much to differentiate between the performance, while Canon, which makes its own sensors, has been making some inroads.

Even so, with its excellent all-around sensor performance, the Nikon Z6 II remains a worthy choice for photojournalism, wedding and portrait photographers, and it’s also a good fit for occasional video projects.
