Sure.

For Nikon's sake, you had better be more right than me. Though you're at a disadvantage as I've been right so far.

Well, you're wrong already. If that's not excellent AF-C performance ...

I am not wrong on anything so far. My only comment on how well the Z9 AF was this.

My question is why haven’t you, TO, lickity, et.al. left already? It’s apparently clear from your opinions that Nikon will never make mirrorless cameras that beat their DSLR counterparts.

I did not say that. The Z9 very well might.

However, I saw a video critiquing Teaser 3, and it brought up more questions than the teaser answered. So it's a wait and see on how good it will be in actual use.  No reason, other than Nikon, why it should not be very good.

But that's only the first step in the point I brought up, step 2 being that a lower price point body needs to be ready to go right away. If the AF is not stellar plus, than step 2 is a moot point. If the AF is stellar plus, where's the body for the masses?

We shall see.
