Someone suggested a firmware update might some day add focus confirmation to AF-C mode. Something to hope for. On a positive note, I very much like the Z6 overall.

AF-C focus is so fast on decent lens (any S prime, AF-S primes, 2.8 zooms..) I really don't see the need for confirmations.. I have close to none OOF shooting 2000+ sports shots at iso 8000-16k.. With moving objects, what is the photographer going to do when it doesn't confirm (green->red->green->red..) for 0.05s? Sports photographers just want to time the action and make sure the subject is within the focus area.

Not to mention I want to kill those photographers shooting next to me with those confirmation beeps..
