Btw, do you use flash? Do you see any limitations regarding the lower flash sync time?

Yes I use flash and no the sync speed does not bother me. I grew up with 1/60s which was OK for me for several decades, so 1/200s is fine. If I need faster then there is the high speed mode also.

What is not awailable is the AF assist light, but I solved that issue with this external AF assist light.

That device sounds interesting. Hopefully the high intensity LED is not harmful to the eye...

Green laser is very harmful, but this is NOT laser, but pure visible green light. It is as harmful as any other high intensity LED, and that is not at all harmful, but can be irritating if you keep playing with the shutter release and keep on half pressing without need. It's green and has the same intensity and wave length as the built in AF assist LED of the Z7. It is on only for as long as the built in AF assist LED is.
