I've had a D850 for a few years now and love it, before that D700 and loved that probably even more in retrospect.

I have a Z6ii rather than Z7 but what I like more than I thought i would is

1. IBIS

2. IBIS

3. IBIS

4. It just seems to focus nicer than the D850. Not faster, just nicer somehow.

5. EVF has some advantages and disadvantages

6. I can adapt my vintage glass with dumb adapters (yeah I know, just me)

7. Very quiet shutter.

8. I did not think I would like the smaller body but when you pick up this camera you realize it's just beautifully engineered. It's a real pleasure to hold.

9. 50mm f 1.8 s lens. Oh dear, what can I say. Beautiful.

10. Did I mention IBIS?

I have a d750 and going to jump into mirrorless, but probably only a Z6 or Z6 II, unless I go with a d850.  I’ve heard very good things about IBIS and as far as EVF, seems like ppl either love it or hate it.  I’m thinking about a little lighter kit(I just retired so older) but not sure how much weight if you use a mirrorless body and DSLR lens, probably not much.
