Rant thread: Bought a Z6, no thanks to youtoobers and "pro-photographers"
Long rant made short.
I was shooting a Nikon D700 for last several years and was going to upgrade to the D750 or D850, that is until Nikon announced the Z6 and Z7 cameras. Between a lot of youtubers, and those to claim to be "pro photographers". There has been a deafening echo chamber of "poor AF-C and lack of dual card slot" So much so, that I started to ignore those mediums. I purchased the Z6 with the 24-70 f/4 and the 50 1.8s, and it absolutely kills my D700.
The AF-c is just as fast and more predictable, it also has the ability to focus further into the corners, something I hated with the D700. Probably why I held out so long and didn't upgrade to the D750 or D850. It has been compared to the competitors but I am not just going to buy a Sony or Canon or Fujifilm just because they have a slightly better af-c performance, I have plenty of Nikon glass so, they need to be compelling in every other aspect for me to even consider to make a switch or adopt a second system. So, comparing brands is worthless to me.
As for the "I can't shoot with out dual card slots" this is an absolute joke to me. If this is something you can't live with out, then why bother repeating it over and over again. We have cameras with dual card slots, buy of those. It doesn't need to be repeated in every other post, thread, comment and video it just makes you sound like like a troll at this point. The Z6/Z7 isn't for you, end of the story, please go away, you are not helpful.
After trying to find out if the Z6 was for me, I gave up on review sites, forums, youtube and just went and purchased the camera myself to see if I liked it.
After using it for the last few weeks, turns out, the Z6 is a godsend for me. A breath of fresh air, it gives me so much more flexibility that I never had with any DSLR. Being able to focus into the corners and lenses that have that corner sharpness to support the outer focus points and they're sharp at wide open apertures. It is lighter and smaller, for when I go backpacking with it. The viewfinder makes my D700 seem dark, small and muddy. It is quite and feels more durable, better overall ergonomics. I also like shooting black and white much more with the Z6, just switch in the the b&W picture control and it shows you what you are going to get in the viewfinder. Also, focus peaking is awesome.
