Hogan has a very good article about Z -af tracking. And as he puts it:

" It’s not a performance problem—the 3D Tracking Nikon provides in mirrorless is very similar to Sony’s capability when used for focus-and-reframe use—it’s solely an implementation problem on the Nikon: too klutzy and step driven when it doesn’t need to be. "

The problem is that the activation of tracting is too complicated. The tracking itself is on par with Sony. So let's hope it will be corrected very soon.

Although all we're getting from Nikon is silence as far as upcoming firmware updates, I'd like to think that Nikon is working overtime testing and retesting new C-AF algorithms. I was hoping the Z50 might show some indications as to where Nikon is heading in that regard, but the fact that it's no different that the Z6/Z7 might simply mean that Nikon doesn't want to tip their hand and they want to release updates for all three cameras simultaneously. Do I dare hope?
