Clearly, the Z series is not for you. None of what you list as drawbacks matter to me and my needs, and many conflict.

Larger Body - Absolutely not.

Two card slots - Couldn't care less.

Top Display - Perfectly functional for my uses.

Battery Grip - I never have used the ones I have purchased for my other Nikons, so not an issue.

Calling a camera "half baked" because of conscious design decisions that don't meet your needs is a little harsh, eh?

Perfect reply.

+1

On two card slots, I also couldn't care, except that it'd make the body bigger, so I actively prefer 1.

Same here. My D500 has two card slots, an SD and an XQD. If i use both, the camera takes longer to write, since its writes at the slower SD rate. So my SD card slot goes empty.

I'm happy the Z7 doesn't waste space with a useless (to me) second SD slot.  Two XQD slots would take up even more space.
