Z9 - too big?
9

Just wondering if there are any new Z9 owners coming from another Z model, or a non-flagship DSLR, who may be finding the Z9 too big or heavy? I'm a working pro, but have always used the smaller DSLRs (D300, D700, D850...) and have never felt the need for a vertical grip, even though I do a lot of portraits and often shoot vertically.
As I get older I have also appreciated the lighter weight of the Z6 and Z7, but the Z9 has obviously gone in another direction. Likewise, Nikon hasn't seemed eager to trim as much weight off their pro lenses (70-200 f/2.8 for example) as Canon and Sony have done lately. Of course I can wait and rent a Z9 and try it out, but just wanted to see what others are experiencing.
