You may be extracting what you want to hear, not what's being said. As from Ryan Cooper at f stoppers, this IS the new narrative on Nikon by many.

"what does sticking to Nikon really benefit me over switching brands? I can just as easily adapt my existing glass to Sony as I can to Nikon Z. It isn't measurably better. I don't save money by sticking to Nikon. I don't have much brand loyalty."

Nikon dropped the ball by not locking us in. They opened it wide open. How stupid of them.

I don't disagree with that.  It just goes back to my original question.  Why haven't you left already.

Here's a way to look at it.  If mirrorless didn't exist would you be upgrading your DSLR equipment on a regular basis?  Would you really wait 10 to 15 years to upgrade to Nikon's current cameras and lenses at that time?

On the other hand, if you are saying that moving to mirrorless is inevitable, but your current equipment works just fine for what you need and you want to let mirrorless get another couple of iterations under its belt, then I can understand.

But I'm not doing any selective reading of posts in this forum.  I follow the forum regularly.  I'm not misunderstanding what I read here.
