We're closing on 100 votes, almost, and it seems only 25% of the current Nikon DSLR users are determined to switch to Z. Maybe not the most representative sample, but these presumably are most valuable users, most likely to buy new gear. If I were Nikon I would be concerned, how are they gonna replace the remaining 75% -- new users? But the market is continuing to shrink, there are many alternatives in the absence of a commitment to a particular mount, and Nikon may not be one of the two most compelling choices anymore.

yray,

As discussed above, I wouldn't REPLACE my f-mount bodies, but I might SUPPLEMENT them with a Z9. I think that perhaps quite a few others are thinking the same thing, at least for the time being. There will probably be a lot of SUPPLEMENTATION going on, with eventually replacement happening, IF Nikon continues making good options there. While the current crop of Z bodies are not enticing enough to get me to fully move away from my D500 and D850, I CAN see at some point in the future of having no other choice BUT a mirrorless body for a new camera.
