It was the first event I used my Nikkor Z 24-100mm f/4 S lens with the Nikon Z9 to capture photos. When I saw fellow photographer STEVE SILBERSTEIN, who also uses a Nikon Z9, we heartily agreed the mirrorless camera’s focus is amazing.

Though I didn’t take many photos that afternoon, the camera and lens combo was a solid fit for the occasion, which also was no surprise.
