Conclusion from DxOMark:
While the original Nikon Z7 sensor was an excellent performer, the camera itself received more than its fair share of criticism for adopting a single XQD card slot, and because it didn’t include a way to fit the optional battery back (with integrated controls). That’s been rectified with the Z7 II, and the inclusion of dual processors has allowed a number of other small but welcome advances.
Noise levels, color accuracy, and dynamic range have all seen some slight improvement, making the Z7 II the best-performing mirrorless model in the Nikon lineup. While continuous improvement in output is always good to see, it doesn’t change very much, as even the price remains highly competitive. And just like its predecessor, the Nikon Z7 II remains an excellent choice for just about any genre, from landscape to portraits and weddings.
