Fantastic shot !

Have you ever tried Sony A9 ? I think you will be surprised pleasantly.:-)

If a D850 can do 9fps flipping a mirror up and down with a grip why is the Z7's frame rate only the same?

Because the pro version coming in a year or so will fill-in any so called short comings. But seriously, do you really need more than 9 fps? I was a working photographer for almost 50 years and never ever needed more than 6fps and realistically could have settled for less.


I wanted a lot more that 6.5 for this shot I took recently:

International Space Station passing in front of the sun. Composite of six frames, actual transit time about 1 second. (Nikon D750 with 200-500 at f/8, ISO 200, 1/250, Thousand Oaks Optical solar filter.)
