Hi,

That might be me as well. If I don't spring for a Fuji GFX 50s before the Nikon Z7 becomes readily available on the used market. Fuji is about to spring the 100s in June, so by August a  used 50s ought to be well down in price.

My main use would be with other systems' lenses. I have two camera shops with large selections of wonderful old lenses. Lots of Medium Format glass, and some 135 format lenses have large enough image circles to work decently with a 44x33mm sensor.

The Z7 can also be used with Medium Format lenses as well. It just needs the proper adapter. It all depends on how it all plays out. I am thinking of an early Christmas present to myself here. If someone pops out a Z to F adapter that properly supports AI and AFD lenses, then the scales tip to the Z7. Otherwise, it is a wait and see situation.
