What reading / learning do you suggest instead?

Consider Thom Hogan’s e-book on the Z6 & Z7 (or whichever Z body you have). Quite useful in my experience. Explains settings and offers suggestions for starting to learn them. Modest cost for lots of helpful information. Recently updated to reflect firmware version 3.

Steve Perry also has useful books on exposure and focus systems, but these may be more useful if you know your camera’s basics. He’s a wildlife and nature photographer, so his examples tend to come from there.

For basic information on aperture, shutterspeed, ISO, focal length, depth of field, etc., see John Shaw’s Guide to Digital Nature Photography. Very good with helpful basic information if you need it. Focuses on examples from nature photography, so there may be better choices if you focus on other stuff.
