I'm not sure it makes sense to make DX-specific "Pro" cameras any more. With sensors as good as they are, a high mp FF with DX mode makes the most sense, IMO. I think this is essentially a future variant of the Z7, but with trickle down technology from the Z9. Alternatively, a new model that is aimed specifically at wildlife and sports shooters, with reduced video capability; I'd buy that, if it was priced well.

I love my D500 but would like to benefit from the eye tracking capability of modern cameras.

A future variant of the Z7 but with trickle down technology from the Z9? You mean like a D850?

A new model that is aimed specifically at wildlife and sports shooters, that sound to me like a Nikon Z(DX) a la D500.

And you would like to benefit from the eye tracking capability.

What is it exactly that would hold you from buying a Z500?

Some cameras, some lenses, some computers

The fact that it's a fictitious camera with unknown specs.

Joking aside, my point was that I'm not sure if Nikon will produce a DX-specific "Pro" model Z camera. I could be wrong, though. If they don't, then we would need a new variant of one of their current models as, and I don't know about you, there is no way I am ponying up for the Z9. Alternatively, they just improve the performance of the Z7 or Z6, using trickle-down tech.
