Currently shooting with D800 + AIS lenses ==> upgrade for serious video?

Hi everyone,

I am currently using a Nikon D800 with mostly AIS & AF-D lenses. Mostly for shooting pictures, not video.

I would like to get more seriously into video and was pretty sure I'd upgrade to a Z6, but after reading that my current lenses will either not be able to transmit aperture data to the camera and the AFD lenses won't even autofocus, i'm having a look at the competition, especially the ZCAM E2 with incredible specs on paper, especially internal raw recording at high frame rate.

What would be the advantages of a Nikon Z6 over the ZCAM? I'm talking about video features only, as I'll keep the D800 for photography.

The one advantage I see is that The Z6+FTZ adapter would be about 600$ cheaper than the ZCAM+external monitor+Fmount to M43 adapter.

The other one is sensor size.

Thanks for your help :),
