Z50 good upgrade from D2xs DX Camera

I originally posted this in the questions thread. I want to get opinions on the new Nikon Z50. I've been shooting Digital for over 20 years. Had the 1st Digital Photo studio in San Diego shooting w/ DCS 620 FireWire to Sony Laptop then composite video to Sony 36” XBR Tube TV mounted to the wall. I shoot w/ D2XS DX cameras now, never thought I would need to upgrade they are still bullet proof, albeit OLD. Plus upgrading to new PRO cameras would be soo expensive since I need to upgrade to a FF camera and lenses.

Then Nikon came out w/ the mirrorless Z6 and Z7, hmmm might be a good way to upgrade. Heard they would compensate for my DX lenses. Now out comes the Z50!! Manna from heaven, I can use my DX lenses w/out losing any pixels!! It’s got all the latest and greatest technology at a great price.

I want to know if anyone has been shooting the Z50. Nikon positioned it as a Vlogger's or next step up kind of camera. Would it be good/reliabe for shooting things like portraits and weddings. Still got my D2’s for sports and rough stuff. And its so inexpensive I could replace my non-motorized AF lenses and buy extra batteries! For what I shoot nowadays I think the Z50 would fill my needs. Wifee won't let me get the D6!! Been doing all the research, now I need your opinions to help me out.
