I have a D850 and Z6. D850 beats the Z6 in focus acquisition speed, and low light focus ability, but Z6 beats D850 in focus hit rate. For what I shoot on a day to day basis, I'd take the Z6 accuracy over the D850 speed. YMMV.

I have  struggles With low light focus on my Z6ii, I then read how to set it up with single point afs and it increased the hit rate and acquisition dramatically. I shot an outdoor wedding and the sun went down during ceremony, the 850 and Z6ii performed pretty equally at that point. Didn’t try it with afc but the single point seemed to really help...
