Re: D800->Z7 or wait for next generation?

Please do not sell your D800s before I have sold mine!

Have the D800 since 2012 and just pulled the trigger on Z7:

the Z7 has no more issues than D800 @ launch

"need" the 14-30mm F4s to replace my Tamron 15-30 F2.8 - mainly @weight reduction and yet super quality

need a camera where I can obliterate shutter shock up to and including 1/2000 sec

need 4K video and APS-C quality 4K is fine and will give me x 1,5 for birding @ 4K !

need stabilization and experimentation with my MC Rokkor 24, 35, 50 and 80-200 and 500mm F8 RF - for fun and maybe these are the compact lenses we need for the Z.

need stabilization for my 85mm F1.8G, 24mm F1.8G

have to get rid of a cheap old AF-D zoom 70-200mm - and unfortunately 20mm F2.8 AF-D, sigma 15mm 2.8 fisheye "AF-D" - or hope for a Kipon AF-D adapter announced for this spring - and (sob) my Tamron 45mm F1.8 that I have learned to love - unless Kipon?

who said life should be easy?

need flippy screen and excellent video and video AF for parties and vacations and family in general

not an avid birder - if so, I would get a used D500

And no there is not a quantum leap in sensor quality like when I upgraded from Sony R1 10 Mpix to D800 36MPix. More resolution and slightly more DR @ 64 iso, else more or less the same as D800

a bit more croppability and higher APS-C resolution for bugs and birds than D800
