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

Regarding waiting for next generation or not, I think it's important to consider how long you intend on keeping the camera? Personally I assume next gen Z will have better autofocus, so if you want to keep the camera for 6-7 years better wait for next generation so you get a mature product... But if you intend to upgrade or are at least willing to upgrade if needed, then you should buy the Z7.

I'm sure D850 is overall better camera, but with it, each new lens you buy will get old after you upgrade to mirrorless later.

Someone here said F lenses are not good on Z and I agree. They are too large, the adapter itself is quite thick, so while a 50mm Sigma Art was perfect on D800, on Z with adapter it's not. F mount lenses also suffer from the same problems as native lenses on Z, namely lack of cross type AF points and low sensitivity.
