Just sharing my recent experience upgrading from Z6 to Z6 II through Nikon's trade-in program. When I placed the order back in December, the II was on back order (both at Nikon USA and our local brick and mortar store). Once the camera became available, the whole process was very customer friendly and easy. Communication from Nikon was timely and clear. Camera arrived in just a couple of days and the return process was straightforward. I just got my confirmation from Nikon for a $895 refund on the return.

Thanks everybody for sharing your trade-in experience.

May I ask a tangential question: Why are you all (not just the OP, but everybody else who are upgrading from Z version 1 to version 2) upgrading? The cost to upgrade seems kind of steep, at least when you trade in through Nikon USA. Of course I know that you can save a lot of hassle from selling your old camera privately.

Are you upgrading because you want the SD card slot, faster AF, or your generation 1 camera is wearing out ...?
