Using two systems is pretty much like having two different cars you drive regularly and use for different purposes. After about 2 seconds I adapt to whichever one I am operating without confusion. The only downside is financial :). The Nikon lenses I depend on are the 24-70 f/2.8, 70-200 f/2.8, 24-30 f4.0, 35mm f1.8, 85mm f1.8, 50mm f1.2 S lenses for the Z cameras, and 58mm f1.4, 105mm f1.4, 300mm f4 PF, and 500mm f4 F mount lenses. The Sony lenses I depend on are the 20mm f1.8, 24mm f1.4, 85mm f1.4, 90mm f2.8 macro, 135mm f/1.8, 16–35 f/2.8, 100-400 and 200-600 zooms. I have been a Nikon user since 1969 and I will likely never abandon them, but I have always had another system which does things Nikon doesn’t do. For instance, the Sony A9ii body has responsiveness and fast rolling shutter readout (no artifacts from artificial light) in silent shutter mode that make it unique for dynamic people pictures. In film days my alternative system was Hasselblad. But when I travel, my kit is still primarily Nikon, for subjective reasons, and because their 24-70 and 70-200 zooms are just rock solid excellent!
