Yes, many of us want to know why the Nikon AF system is not as good as say Canon or Sony.

I take portraits and the AF system is very unreliable even for that.

Some times it tracks the eyes, sometimes it does not

Sometimes it focuses on an eye, sometimes it does not.

We get told by "experts" that we should learn how to use the cameras, or read the manual.

I have had my Z6ii and my Zfc for a year now.

Do Sony or Canon users get told to read the manual.

The perception is out there that Nikon is behind on AF.

AF is where its now in still and video.

As the OP says, is it Nikon's technology or their sensors, or their algorithms, or do they just not care?

I say all of this as a Nikon fan boy for 40 years.
