Z mount: Bigger, Better

In-body stabilization means every lens has VR
The Z8's in-body stabilization offers 5.5 stops of 5-axis image stabilization (6.0 stops when using a compatible NIKKOR Z lens with Synchro VR support). This means that every lens, including primes, benefits from the advantages of VR, resulting in steadier video footage, improved low-light performance, and overall sharper results.
