Not Len, but for a specific shoot, an hour

To fully understand the impact of all possible changes, longer, but there are some things I rarely/never use so would look into those as I know I will need.

You got to what I experienced early on with Z7.  Before a specific shoot, it didn't take very long to work through firmware changes to menu system for shoot as planned.

Issue was shoot setting changed right before shoot was about to start.  Forcing me to go through changed menu system looking for settings which needed to be modified ASAP.

To be upfront about this.  I am not a Professional photographer, the shoot I was doing was for free.  But it involved high ranking Military Officers, who had fixed schedules for the day's meeting.

Leading back to why I say a Professional camera's Menu system (or UI) can not undergo major layout changes with firmware updates, which requires Professional to re-learn UI.
