I am thinking about making the move to the Z7 II. Over the past year, the arthritis in my thumbs has been getting worse and it pains me at times holding the D850. I'm hesitant as I do shoot BIF and Wildlife along with portraits and events. I know many people have both, but I really can't justify that type of investment. Any wise sages out there who can guide me?

I switched from the D850 to the Z6 II and I regretted it initially. You definitely have to learn how to use it. It's not like other mirrorless cameras on the market where you can just pick it up in auto and it's going to do everything for you.

But for birds and wildlife, you should probably just hold off for a while. See how the firmware updates shake out as well as the newer bodies like the Z9.
