Pre-Record

2. Nikon has no excuse for leaving Pre-Record out of the Z9 Functions - the electronic shutter should make it a doddle to implement, surely.

For some of us shooting wildlife, we know has NO Pre-Record function. This is a powerful feature available already some years ago in RED cameras and very useful for street photography using 8K for stills.

Pre-Record is a very useful feature in Olympus MILCs - at much more affordable RRPs:

If Olympus did this years back, what's wrong with Nikon?

If Nikon offered a pre-record for video function, I'd return to Nikon without a moment's hesitation. Pre-record is an absolutely fabulous feature that is mostly ignored by the industry.

What's a used Alpha 1 and a 200-600 go for?

???

Around about way of saying I guess there'll be a Sony Alpha 1 and a 200-600 for sale .

I have absolutely no idea but will find out when I sell them, which is only a matter of time as you can tell from my previously owned gear list.

With the price difference on a Z9 to Alpha 1, one would really want to have an Alpha 1, as the price of a used one would be around / close to the price of a new Z9.  One thing going for the Alpha is that long lenses are available, both new and used.
