I love my D850 - I couldn't have gotten this with my Z

Re: exact same thing for me


I've had lots and lots of times when I needed to get a shot instantly but my camera was turned off. With a DSLR, that doesn't really matter since it's ready to go between the time you grab it and get it to your eye.


Indeed! I will often walk around with my camera on but in standby, and by the time it's at my eye, it's ready. Even when I DO turn it off as I think it will be a long time between uses, I can turn it on while raising it, and it's ready. Battery life and that zero lag factor are some of the reasons I don't foresee switching to mirrorless just yet. At some point, they'll solve some of these issues, and it'll make more sense for me to supplement and, eventually, switch. But with owning a D500 and D850--inarguably two of the best cameras made--I don't see ANY reason to switch totally for quite a while.
