I tried to use my SB800 flash on my Z6ii to shoot a nearly dark event, and the camera refused focus most of the time. Then, I realized the the focus lamp on the SB800 was not coming on.

Doesn't function on Z bodies.

Darn. That's a disappointment.

How can you shoot flash shots of dancing in a dark room with the Z6ii?

Prefocus a general distance and skillfully match up your focus square with a glint on your target or near your target’s distance.

Do any of the speedlights that work with the Z6ii have a focus assist lamp?

I vaguely recall hearing about something that “may“ somewhat work some years back but I think if it was truly a solution it would be spoken about more frequently. It was a believe it was a third-party flash

Maybe Profoto makes a Nikon version of this:
