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 ...?

Two card slots and improved autofocus were at the top of my list. As legit event/performance work returns--when will that be? --those are features I will want. The functioning grip is something I might consider down the road as well. Right now I didn't absolutely have to upgrade. But I had the needed cash. And I wonder if Nikon may be facing some more supply shortages in the coming months, so decided to get the upgrade done when I had the chance.

I've also have a Z7, but I don't expect to replace that anytime soon.
