Thoughts on Using Resilient File System (ReFS) for Photo/Video Storage?

I am curious if anyone has practical experience using Microsoft ReFS. Would it be a good choice for data drives used for storing raw photo files, video files, etc.?

I have a TrueNAS file server that uses ZFS, and it works very well. My understanding is that ReFS, in conjunction with Storage Spaces, provides much of the benefits of ZFS (especially related to data integrity). I am considering ReFS for direct attached storage (internal or external data drives) and continuing the use of ZFS on the NAS. I realize I would need to upgrade my Windows 10 Pro system to Windows 10 Pro for Workstations to create and manage ReFS file systems.

I would appreciate your insight on the use of ReFS.
