That's a fine image. Focus seems perfect too.

I have 13 FX lenses, A D800E and D850, and I don't see myself switching to mirrorless anytime soon.

Thank you. Yes, I used my tool of AF On + Group AF I have assigned to PV and just plastered it on the owl's face. Perfect! But why can't I do that on my Z6?

13 FX lenses? Are they all AF-S? If so the FTZ has been perfect for me even with Sigma and Tamron lenses. I've been pleased by my few Z-mount lenses and they're by all accounts better to way better than their F-mount ancestors. Is the difference significant? Depends on the lens and your tastes. I loved my 24-70 f/4, the wonderful kit lens, on my Z6 but I sold it for the vastly improved focal length flexibility of the 24-200 which apparently puts the 28-300 to shame.
