Re: Are you still happy with your Z6/7 (or do you need a Z6/7 II)?

For what you are shooting, I would pass on the gen 2 cameras. Unless you are using eye AF for the portraits that involve moving kids. I have the original Z6 and Z7 as well as the Z7ii. The Z7ii AF is noticeably quicker to where it works where the original does not in the wildlife I shoot. This is for larger mammals and birds. If BIF was my thing, I wouldn't use the Z7ii either. In my situation, it is mostly worth the upgrade. I say mostly, because the cost of the upgrade is still a lot compared to what was gained. Hopefully this will change with an upcoming firmware update, but that is unknown and I'd recommend holding off until either the that firmware update arrives or the next gen comes out.
