Yes, I've researched it pretty heavily. I'm more or less looking for the actual user experience. I'm hoping the D780 has the balance I need between my old D500 and a Z body when using AF-C. I THINK I'll have the best of both worlds for now.

When using the OVF, the D780 focuses just like an updated D750 or a D500 and the experience should be very, very similar.  The focus technology is similar for all three.

When using Live View, the D780 focuses just like a Z6 and the experience should be very, very similar (except you can't use this type of focusing with a viewfinder on the D780).
