Re: From D800E user need advice

You have several options to consider:

  • Continue with the D800e, why break what's working?
  • A used D810, which for *me* was a significant upgrade over the D800e
  • A D850
  • The D850's successor is supposed to be out this year, so wait for that camera to be out (caveat: it's a very plausible rumor but still just a rumor)
  • The Z7II

My *personal* choice would be between the last 2: since you're happy with the D800e, waiting a few months should not be a problem. You can at that time get an even better dSLR. Besides, the D850 price will then come down if you still decide to go that way.

Before splurging for a Z7II you may want to make sure that you like EVF. The Z7 II AF--C performance is behind that of a dSLR for difficult subjects. And you need to purchase the FTZ adapter for your F lens. Make sure they are compatible or you will have to replace them as well. Apart from the EVF / AF-C /  FTZ adapter conundrum, the Z7 II offers valuable features such as AF sensors covering the entire VF, focus peaking, eye-AF (the D850 has it but it works well only if the subject head fills up a large part of the screen), etc., and is the future-proof choice.
