Re: Replacement body received. The verdict...no longer sux

Update: Had a grandchild over today and grabbed the new Z6 II + 24-70 kit lens to see if anything had changed regarding eye focusing.

I'm happy, and somewhat surprised, to say that the new copy works absolutely perfectly in nailing autodetecting human eyes.

So, the Z6 II no longer sux.

Caveat to everything I've experienced with two Z6 II bodies:

The problem shots with the original body, in where the eye was not even close to being in focus, occurred with version 1.01 of the firmware.

The new body came with 1.02.

So, was the original body defective or was the improvement due to version 1.02 of the firmware??

Couldn’t tell you, but when I get home I’ll be updating to the new firmware 😂
