Upgrade my Fuji or switch to Z6?

Hi guys,

I am a long-time Nikon user. Started out with the D700 and been shooting professionally since 2016 (portraits/family sessions/weddings), now with my D850's. I have been investing heavily in my pro kit and now I have almost all the glass I like or need.

For personal use, I've been using Fuji X-T1 with my only lens, the 18-55/2.8-4.0. As I don't like the AF-C, I was going to add lenses and upgrade to the X-T3 or X-H1, until the Z's came along.

It seems to me it does make a lot of sense to switch to the Z6 for personal use. I can use all my Nikkors and perhaps occasionally use it for professional shoots or as a backup. I can slowly add some native Z-mount glass and would be "future proof" so to speak. Also, I would not be investing to 2 totally different systems.

Seeing how small the size difference is between the systems, it is really tempting and I am also looking to upgrade my 24-70G which is really showing its flaws on my D850. I find the other available options kind of mesh... The new 24-70/2.8Z looks great..

Anyone out there in the same boat?

- For lenses: 24-70/4.0 and 14-30/4.0 look great for personal use, maybe the Z 24-70/2.8 too for pro use. And maybe a 50/1.8Z

- Money is no real factor between the two systems, they are close enough and I am ready to save/wait. No rush. Also, I am not heavily invested in Fuji. The resale value will be scraps though....

- Size: I think both systems will fit my Think Tank Retrospective 5

Any experiences? Thanks!
