The D4 sensor was appealing because the D4's sensor was Nikon's best for high ISO at the time.

Sensor's like Sony'a A1 which is probably the closest comparison point to the Z9 (8K, 45+MP, 30fps stills) are optimized for fast readout and aren't the best for high ISO or dynamic range. The A7III beats the A1 for high ISO, and the A7RIV for dynamic range at base ISO.

What would be the point of a sensor designed for fast readout in a Zf?
