Nikon will never make a MILC camera that beats its flagship DSLR ,I’d like to say they ain’t that stupid but you never know , Nikon is not going to abandon its DSLR flagship line just because they made its first pro body Z , to even think that is ridiculous, a D7 is in the works and it’s AF will be top notch , the Z equivalent will always lag behind

You are entitled to your opinion. As am I and others. In my opinion, you are simply wrong. You say Nikon isn't that stupid to make a mirrorless that tops their DSLR. Well, call them well on their way to stupid then because they've already for the most part said they were going to do exactly that.

Nikon made 80 million f mount lenses to date so now they’re going to eliminate the pro body that mates to them lenses , sounds like a silly thing to do when said like that no ?

We’ll see in two years

It's not like they're going to suddenly make all the DSLRs stop working via planned obsolescence. They'll just stop releasing new ones like a "D7". The current DSLRs will still work with said f mount lenses. If someone still wants to use those f mount lenses, they can buy any of the currently working DSLRs on sale.

The Z9 is also for people who have used the Z6 and Z7 for the past three years to move up to. We don't want to get a DSLR because of the simple fact that our Z mount lenses don't work on a DSLR.

It's not that silly when you think about it.

We don't need two years, we just need to wait two weeks.

So back to the original topic, just wait for the Z9 to be fully unveiled in a few weeks time. What the Z6 (12/14 fps) already does better than the a1/a9 (10 fps) is the higher fps mechanical shutter. Electronic shutter is still funky in indoor lighting. So at least we know Nikon is capable of side-stepping the banding issue with a better mechanical shutter with current existing technology. Let's hope we get either the same 14 fps mechanical shutter or even better than that.
