I used a 70-200 f/2.8 VRI on the D3/D300/D850 and it focused lightning fast. On the Z7 with the FTZ converter it was slower and hunted more.

My experience is a little different.

Z is limited by having none of the more efficient cross type sensors, and individual AF points on the Z 7 are very small.

When the AF subject is right for Z (in itself a limitation) AF is no slower and on my 200-400 and 300 f2.8 VR seems a little quicker than my D850.

In lots of ways good photography is much more about how equipment is used rather than the equipment being used.
