Hello all, i just wanted to ask a quick and brief question or two solely opinion based.

I recently purchased a Z5 and after doing some comparisons of spec sheets with the

z6 it really brings the questions of, is the z5 being held back by its firmware? and

do you think the future firmware updates will unlock features like the 1.7 crop and 1080p 120 fps? from what ive seen, the only hardware disadvantages between the z5 and z6 is the back lit sensor, .2 megapixels, and screen dots... so the z5 is obviously being firmware locked so that you purchase a z6 or higher!

Nikon wants to have a camera lineup that appeals to different segments of the population, and they have built the Z5 to appeal to people who want a full frame mirrorless camera but don't  want to spend whatever the more expensive cameras cost. Ultimately, Nikon wants you to buy a Z7ii or Z6ii, so while I expect firmware updates for the first generation Z6s and Z7s, and Z5, they need to have different cameras that appeal to different consumers in the lineup.
