An understandable position.

DSLRs have that clumsy AF fine tune confound, whose value varies as a function of focal length and subject distance--a problem rendered all the more apparent with fast glass. Then, there's that amusingly antiquated focus and recompose. Lastly, let's not forget to give credit where it's due: the Nikon Z's are very good at eyelash focus, from what I've heard.

You'd be surprised at how useable fast lenses are on, say, a Sony FF mirrorless body.
