Next firmware for Z6 / improved AF?

Are there any rumors if/when Nikon will further improve AF for Z6/Z7?

I changed from D7500 to Z6. The camera is great and overall far better than my skills. JHowever, it sometime feels like the AF could be slightly better to be on spot.

  • Better face detection with higher hit-rate and more on the eye.
  • Avoid focusing on something totally irrelevant in the background in auto-area.
  • Use touch display to select focus point.

I never used a Sony A7III, but most reviews indicate that Sony performs better in this discipline.

I guess Nikon’s development team is very busy to catch up (new lenses, new DSLR camera(s), high-end Z camera, potentially APS-C mirrorless,…). I am afraid that due to priorities the current status of the AF system is seen as “good enough”.
