just as crucial as finally fixing the nikon autofocus problem is trickling it down and doing it fast.

Agree. it must trickle to the Z6/Z7 gen 3 and released next year

Yes or just a Z8. Reason I say this is the lack of buttons and controls on the Z7ii disturbs me. Nikon are famous for moving the cheese about with new bodies. To me it feels like a step forward but two back with some of the choices they make. Coming from a d850 I will use the touch screen but I want the af mode switch and I want the two function buttons at the mount. The whole point in pro level cameras is to avoid menu diving. While we are at it I honestly think the z7ii is one of the ugliest cameras I have ever seen. YMMV on that.

The Z6 and Z7 do have two Function buttons next to the mount.  From the latest leaked image, the Z9 appears to have three.
