1) It might not be a hard bar now, but it was for the D800E - I never felt comfortable with getting consistent manual focus even stopped down further. I don't shoot wide open portraiture - for sure, in that regard, an EVF/AF on Sensor system would be better.

2) Indoor fluorescent light. Same situations, Z7 would hunt, R would lock.

3) Yea, I expect Canon will answer with a high mp back.

4) For what I'd use precision AF for (landscape, certainly not studio where things are moving), the precision focus in LV of the D850 is just fine. Although I use primarily MF lenses for landscape and the focus peaking is nice too.

I'm not a Z hater like some. I just took a hard, honest look at pros/cons and it ended up pretty clear that for me, at this time, the D850 was easily the better choice. If I were wealthy, I'd have a Z7 just for fun too, but I made a commitment to myself 2 years ago to get off the GAS train and only buy what I really needed and that made sense, irregardless of whether it was the hot trendy new toy on the market or not.

Well stated,...I'm sure Nikon is going to regroup and give us something very special soon,...and not to far in the distant future!
