Hi there,

I am wondering how much price premium would you pay for Z6 II over Z6 and what's your reason behind it?

In the U.S., Z6 body is now on sale for Black Friday at $1600 while the Z6 II stays at $2000. I mainly shoot landscape, portraits but no sports or animals. I also do not care about the dual card slots as I will be using XQD or CFExpress anyway. I might eventually do a little bit of video though. An additional $200-300 seems to be the most I would pay for Z6 II so I am inclining towards the Z6 now. Just wondering what do you all think?

What I think is that it is silly to base a choice between the two cameras based on one or two hundred dollars.  If the Gen 2 has features you want/need then buy it.  If there are IQ improvements at all, then buy it.

To put it more plainly, if the first Gen Z6 was $1000 (or $500) I'd buy the Gen 2 if it had anything better that I cared about.  If Gen 2 had absolutely nothing that I cared about I might not buy it even if it was only $100 more.

If one or two hundred dollars makes or breaks the decision then a Z5 might be the better choice.
