It’ll be a leap forward regarding video for Nikon but bring little to the table for stills

Hilarious. I see you are going to make the best of it.

If what appears to be coming in the Z9 was in a D7 people here would be all over it. Let's turn it around 180. After the Z9 any D7 will bring little to the table.

I love it , that’s like the only way Z owners feel better about things ,they try to imagine things turned 180, 😄to late Mike ,your invested in the Z and i betcha you even preordered .

I've got plenty of D and Z equipment. And no I have not pre-ordered.

I know I'm quoting you here Mike but forgive me.

To give Mike his due, he does own both gears as he says and from what I've seen, doesn't hide z flaws like I've seen with other members here. He is ready to speak about the short comings along with the positives which is all I want to see here. I've been burnt by nikon before and I want to be able to use the forums to make informed purchases but if you cannot even ask about z without getting the rose tinted glasses response then that is where I draw the line.

I agree, I was hoping he did preorder just to hear his opinion,
