You like your Z, and that's good for you. Stick with what you know. Perhaps you shouldn't speak for the many well respected folks who have used and reviewed this product, and who have clearly identified many of its shortcomings. Doing so only puts you into the category of trying to rationalize your purchase by invoking straw men.

I you invoking inverse logic - and also using straw men?

I like my Z for some things, my D850 for others, and my D500 for yet other things

Nobody has yet produced an ML body, or a DSLR, which is perfect for everything, though any one option might be perfect for one specific photographer.

The only area for me of doubt with Z is Dynamic area AF is not as flexible for focus tracking (moving toward or away from the camera) as D850 or D500.

When it comes to movement across the frame or focus on an eye Z has it - and DSLR's generally do not.

If you can accept neither is better - or worse - just different - maybe you are on this Earth and not on Fullers Earth.

The Z6 and Z7 is worse than the D850. Plain and simple. While there are different tools

I own both D850 and Z6 and can tell you that Z6 even at 24 MP is giving D850 run for its money.

1) It stablized all my F-mount lenses.

2) New S lenses are amazing. I was blown away by kit lens's quality as it was better than my G primes.

3) Live view with histogram is so much helpful.

4) of course its lighter. Despite being young and body builder I enjoy this light setup more.

5) SOOC quality of Z is better than D850 and D610.

6) All my f-mount lenses are producing tack sharp images whereas on D850 I had to fine tune all my lenses.

7) Video on Z6 is at least million times better than D850.

8) Eye AF on Z6 is amongst the best implementations.

9) IBIS on Z6 is one of the best. So easy to take photos at slow shutter speeds now/

The list goes on and on.

Conclusion: Z cameras are better cameras than D850 in wide variety of situations.

You are wrong. The D850 in the pinnacle of DSLRs. As refined and near perfect as it comes.

The Z6 and Z7 has missed on a lot of points. A couple of weeks ago, this could have been written off as a "he said, she said" thingy.

But not today. You have the dismal Zee sales figures that were posted here within the last week or so. Sony is wiping the floor with them. You have the recall that this thread is about. You have a $1640 discount here in Toronto on a Z7 + FTZ adapter. That's sixteen hundred and forty dollars! You can ignore those three points all you want, you can explain them away all you want. But in May 2019 the Zees are at least half a failure. If the Z7/Z6II or III are as improved as they need to be, I'll have a look.

I also live in GTA

I got my Z6 on a good discount and it's a fabulous camera. Using all my F mount lenses. With the latest update it got even better. My Z6 is a good buddy of my D850's just that it's better in more situations than D850. .. I don't care about Sony as I can't use my F mount lenses like Z6.

I hope they discount S lenses too.  They are super sharp and much better than F counterparts.
