Bewildered after today's photo shoot with the Z7II

I did a 4 hour photo shoot today with 4 models. During the shoot, my camera went wonky with playback button not working, the back display flashing uncontrollably, and other wierdness. I'm thinking it was overheating; or it got fed up with my FTZ and Sigma 85mm F/1.4. I've used this combination many time without issue.

Perhaps the biggest issue I have been experiencing with the Z7II is with Settings just jumping all over the place. I was using manual mode.  ISO was resetting to weird numbers; my shutter speed was resetting itself from 200 to 2000; and at one point the Focus mode switched modes. I'm pretty sure I did not touch the back display by accident.

Anyone else experiencing similar issues??
