Z9 low light AF worse than Z6. Really?
3

Shooting in low light the AF on my Z9 was poor and then gave up, failing to focus in any AF area mode. Enabling starlight view helped for a short time while the light level fell further until the Z9 could not focus once again. Changing to the Z6 was a revalation: the Z6 focused easily. Same lens, same subjects and if anything even less light by the time I switched bodies.

Something wrong with my Z9 or my settings I think. Compating the specifications the Z9 should be much more competent in low light.

Your thoughts please.
