EOS-M has a 9 year head start.... that's 9 years of volume, development and market base Nikon would have to compete with. I'm honestly shocked Nikon did Z DX at all, but given how quickly the market is contracting I think they are going to keep investment into it at an absolute minimum. I would not buy into Z DX with the hopes that it will ever come close to a fully fleshed out system. I would go as far as to say I don't expect any Z DX lenses beyond the two on sale now.

Yeah, there’s no chance Z DX becomes a fully fleshed out system like Fuji X. If Nikon fulfills it’s roadmap and adds a couple more lenses (like a wide DX zoom), though, I think it’ll be close enough, especially when coupled with the FX Z lenses

But in general, I think it’s good advice to not buy into a system until it has the lenses you want - or at the very least, not until those lenses are announced with an on sale date and price (a roadmap announcement isn’t sufficient to me, since roadmaps can change). The Z and R mounts may be a bit different for a lot of people due to legacy lens support, but if you bought a Z50 with an expectation that Nikon would come out with a specific lens or set of lenses, you kind of only have yourself to blame if it doesn’t come out or doesn’t come out for a long while.
