Funny...

Th Z6/Z7 can do it.

That's a pretty good Z6 image.  When examined at 100%, the DOF is pretty well centered between the front and back of the dog which is very good for a subject coming right at you.   Further, it's good for a dark colored subject without a ton of contrasting elements.  But, there does appear to be plenty of bright sunlight (judging by the shadow) so it isn't a particularly difficult set of circumstances to draw wide ranging conclusions from.

FYI, the EXIF gives us 1/1600, 220mm, ISO 800, but curiously does not give us the aperture.

Also, it's not fair to assume the Z7 has exactly the same capabilities as the Z6.  This is one place where the two may have different strengths/weaknesses due to the different size/qty of AF sensors.

Anyway, nice to see the Z6 nail this one.
