Didn't they create a new forum for Z camera discussions...?

Yeah it’s one forum over but you better be careful only to praise the Z bodies even if they can’t AF and have service advisories or you’ll quickly be banned from commenting, the forums not interested in discussion only cheerleading....

Z,s AF got better than D850. Video AF was already better but now still AF is better too (especially for large apertures with thin DOF). Eye AF is also only on Z not on Nikon DSLRs. Nikon is committed to provide more features via future updates

AF is indeed more accurate on Z bodies than D850 for static objects.

Focusing a D850 is child's play. When a Z can track a bird in flight and without viewfinder blur it might be a more interesting proposition. Not holding my breath :^)

I like to take mostly portraits with shallow depth of field. Its a child's play for Z while D850 can't hold a candle and there are less keepers;

If that's your conclusion, I suspect you haven't yet found the optimal settings for the D850's AF system.  In what way do you think it's deficient? (I ask as someone who has used the D850 and Z6 for portraits).

AF for this kind of photography is not as accurate as mirror-less cameras like Z6/Z7.

For fast action I am still keeping my D850 but not everybody does BIF. For that we have D5/D850/D500. Horses for courses (not) dude.

In my opinion, you are losing credibility every time you post your exaggerated impressions of the Z cameras' capabilities.
