    • That 58mm f/0.95 is probably going to cost more than the D850 and the kit lens.

      To me the only reason to upgrade would be for the new lenses and lens mount, whenever that becomes compelling. More frames per second isn't something that is important to me, so I don't really have an opinion on that. I have seen worse battery life scores, but that is not based on real-world experience and probably depends on use-case, but you can work around that. I have seen a lot of moaning about the lack of a redundant SD card slot as though that is the only weak point in data integrity chain from scene to secure photos.

      I have a D750 and the lenses that I want and I get a lot of enjoyment out of this gear. To me, the new mirrorless cameras and lenses will probably be more compelling on or after August 23, 2020.

    • Initially when I read about the Z6 at 1AM it looked like the perfect camera for me since 24 MP is more than enough as I shoot a lot of low light work and adding VR to all my primes would be amazing but... The fact that it can't focus with AF-D lenses is the big killer for me. I love my 135 F2 and 180 F2.8. So the question is will an adapter with a motor be in the future? Otherwise based on the road map I've got awhile for Nikon to fill in those gaps if they ever do.

      While the AF coverage is great I'm a little worried about the performance with its' lower number of points VS the Z7 so that's something to keep an eye on.

      The single card slot is a worry. I know that I shot with one for years on my D700 and my DSLR's before it but once you have dual cards and the piece of mind that gives you it's hard to go back.

      So in the short term I'll be getting another Nikon DSLR most likely but I have hopes for the Z mount's future.

    • I would say your good for at least one revision of the camera. Reviews at this stage all seem to say very rough around the edges.
