I have the Z7II and the eye AF is nailing 98% of the time at least. It's gotten to the point where an out-of-focus shot is a shock. I've been shooting a lot of stuff sailing where my D850 had a lower keeper rate.

That sounds great. Is the eye AF any slower to acquire focus than using a single AF point and putting it on the eye?

Using a single point will always be better in some cases. I can CHOOSE exactly where I want the AF to be. But in a lot of situations the eye AF is getting me the focus points required quicker than I was doing it myself. It's really dependent on the situation.

I only wish there was a big fat button to toggle between Eye-AF and Single point instantly. Maybe there is, but I haven't looked into it.
