I'm sure the updated firmware will provide some welcome improvements in AF-C performance, but I just don't see how a simple firmware update can magically close the AF performance gap between the Z and A cameras. That will require hardware/design changes.

How is the Z camera hardware inferior to the A camera hardware?

Z7 vs A7RIII? Off the top of my head...

- smaller buffer

- 3x longer shutter lag

Never heard of 3x longer shutter lag? Sources? I have not noticed any difference in shutter lag between a7rIII and z 7.

Z 7 turns on faster than a7rIII and is generally quicker in operation than a7rIII.

In my experience, neither a7rIII nor Z 7 is the first choice for shooting action, but both have adequate buffer and fps in their intended use. The difference is more of an issue if you compare them on paper.

Off to shoot with my Sony (really curious how the new firmware works out),

- lower FPS (8@14bit, 9@12 bit vs 10@14bit)

No firmware tweaks are going to help these metrics.
