Anyone used MF on BOTH Zx & D780 bodies?

I would VERY much appreciate comments from folks who have used MF lenses (especially AI-S) on both Zx and D780 bodies.

The D780 has an obvious advantage supporting 'legacy' lenses.

HOWEVER, all Dxxx bodies that I know of are cursed with the dot-in-the-corner MF focus 'aid' that ruins the (viewfinder) MF experience. The mirrorless focus aids should be much better.

So I'm struggling with this choice:

(1) Accept the FTZ's poor support for older lenses to get usable (viewfinder) MF focus aids, OR

(2) Get full 'legacy' mount support, but MF with a miserable corner dot?

BTW, virtues of native Z lenses are largely irrelevant to me, as I could afford few if any of them.
