But I am not happy with the AF performance of Z6, so was planning to upgrade. Now a days, I am more into Birding, and get into low light situation quite often. Then the AF of Z6 starts hunting for some time, enough for me to miss the shot. Also, Sucess rate of BIF for small fast birds is quite low.

Are you using auto-area AF and approximately pre focussing where you expect the birds to be?

While I appreciate the Z auto-area AF remains a "one size has to fit all subjects" - with approximate pre focus I find lock on in the blink of an eyelid even in low light and even with a lens like the 200-500.

In lots of ways good photography is much more about how equipment is used rather than anything else.
