Of interest is the latest DPReview video on the Z7 II, which notes that the eye focusing algorithm now focuses on the pupil, rather than eyelashes, as in the Z 7.

Assuming the Z6 II has the same algorithm, it's clear that it should lock on to the pupil, and not on (in my sample photo) a hair. Besides, again in my case, the camera focused on the *other* eye, not the one indicated by the yellow box.

In any event, I returned my Z6 II to Amazon and the replacement is arriving today, so we'll see if anything's changed.

I'll be interested to see the results of your new Z6 II. In my case, my Z7 II gives me sharp results with the paper thin DoF at f/1.2 and close to minimum focus distance on the eyes of a doll, so I'm hoping you just got a bad copy.
