I fail to see how anyone who has serious experience shooting a Nikon DSLR body would have any trouble in the mirrorless Z series. They are the same camera, without a mirror. It's not difficult to figure out.

Well, totally different button layout in back for one. Dealing with an EVF vs OVF for another.

Exactly. With some of the buttons likely never to return. Don't know about you, but menu diving or fiddle farting around with a smartphone all day aren't my favorite pastimes.

They are NOT the same camera, without a mirror. Completely different experience shooting with either.

They will never be the same camera. One requires a constant sensor read for a viewfinder, the other does not. Nor will any electronic view finder ever have the exact response time/characteristics as one with a direct optical path.

Not expecting a 'superior' Z 70-180 Micro to be showing up anytime soon, either.
