Too expensive or not ?

For those who find the Nikon Z9 too expensive, remember the Kodak DCS 410

cost US $ 8,000.00 in 1996, with a sensor of only 1.54 MP
Finally, the Z9 is almost given.

Here is a comparison with my Nikon D810, just for the pleasure of appreciating more the evolution made over the last 25 years.
Unfortunately, I don't have the Z9 (too expensive)
