Where it doesn't belong, since this thread is about the Nikon Z and the reasons an originally interested person didn't buy one.

...but there are more people who consider (or not) the Z over there than here.

This is the Nikon Z forum, and I guess that 90% (or more) of those active here actually HAVE the Nikon Z, so asking here why we don't get the Z is a bit awkward and pointless.

The Nikon Z forum is for everyone interested in the Nikon Z, not only the actual owners.

Yes, but if you want to know why people are NOT buying the Z then the Z forum is the wrong forum because most of us already have the camera...

I dumped my D800 back in November as soon as the Z7 became available. The reasons were many, and all those are valid even today. If I could turn back time I'd do it even today, not a single moment of regret so far. the question that should be asked "Why did we buy the Z6 or the Z7 and NOT a D850 or the D750"?

Edit: I just noticed that the thread was moved.

maybe the forum "camera lenses, systems etc  " is where these sorts of general questions about choices might find a natural habitat?

However, whatever the OP's intention,  i own to seeking views in the forum appropriate to the system i am thinking of buying into.

I found your reply, ollyflyer,  to my off topic enquiry about your experience with your z7 on the N1 forum extremely helpful and although i will almost certainly be buying a z6 rather than z7 within the next month or so, it is good to be able to share views with others trying to make that decision - after all, it is a shed load of money, even if you are working to cover that by selling other stuff.
