Also, if the user is primarily concerned about moving up to FX, what's wrong with more-recent FX DSLR bodies like the D810 or D850? Especially the D850. People have taken many great photos with DSLR bodies in the past, and continue to do so today.

This sub-topic is a head-scratcher for me on multiple accounts. On the one hand multiple people have made comments like "everything now is better than almost anything from a couple years ago". That certainly seems logical given the way that technology advances. But the D850 is from 2017. And yet when I see IQ comparisons between the D850 and the Z7ii, the D850 has less noise at higher ISO than the Z7ii does. They seem to have the same 45MP sensor, and the Z7ii has 2 processors instead of one, so how does the much older D850 even come close, much less beat the Z7ii on something like this? The D850 is also claimed to have better AF performance, another thing that seems baffling considering the age difference.
