As long as Nikon refuse to build compelling products for its users to upgrade to, I don’t see this trend changing. The D780 improved too little over the D750 and now it appears that the D6 improves too little over the D5.

I sincerely hope that Nikon fix the problems they currently have with the Z cameras in the next product generation because otherwise there really is nowhere for their current DSLR user base to go. Both their mirrorless and updated DSLR’s offerings are just not improved enough over existing cameras to warrant buying into IMHO.

Nikon really needs to knock one out of the park with their next Z. I sold my Z7 because the tracking just wasn't there. The next Z must have a Sony a9 like tracking system, dual UHS II slots and they'll be in the ballpark.

I agree. I just read the announcement specs for the upcoming Canon R5. It'll have IBIS and dual slots resolving the two major shortcomings of the Canon R. Hopefully with stronger onboard processors it will also reach AF parity with Sony's tracking and Eye-AF.

If Nikon decide not to build a DTZ adapter and thereby orphan their AF-D lenses to manual focus in perpetuity on Z, then those lenses can be manually focused just as well on an R5. I think they'd better throw the kitchen sink into Z to hold onto every F mount user lest they be lost to either Canon or Sony.
