Picking up an entirely new camera the day before a major trip is a rookie mistake. As good as the 24-200 is, particularly at “landscape” apertures, the Z system is all about the S lenses which are uniformly a step up from their DSLR counterparts.

I wonder if he was even using EFCS on some of his reduced shutter speed images. He complains that the images were ‘soft’ which I don’t believe I’ve ever heard anyone, (or at least any skilled user) ever complain about aZ camera with an S lens.

The 24-200 isn't the ideal lens to get the most out of what the Z7 can do. As you say, if he doesn't understand the advantages of using EFCS then he may well end up with some soft images.

I found my Z6 a very easy camera to get to use for landscape pics. It's the odd minor features like EFCS which you need to dig out to get the best out of it.
