Since no one else has chimed in, here's my take. I'm in exactly the same boat as you. My D800 is still going strong, even though occasionally there is a focus issue. I don't shoot sport or fast moving subjects, so I have the luxury of reshooting.  I originally saw the Z7 as the small/lighter choice of the D850, and I always wanted to get rid of that pesky low pass filter.

Having seen all the teething problems of this latest generation of cameras, I've decided to hold back and see what's going to happen. Before sinking any cash into this round of gear, I'd like to see the rubber grip problems resolved. It would be nice to see a more DSLR way of initiating focus. There have been reports of other concerns as well, which leads me to wait for the next model release. Of course my credit card fingers sometimes start twitching, but I'm going to TRY and wait it out!.............................Jeff Barlowe
