You really can't expect a two year old pro camera to be as affordable as a much earlier model. The D5 is 7 years old.  I expect in five years there will be some great deals on the Z9 and you can make your move then.

I see the Z8 as the first z camera Nikon has made that offers a seamless transition in terms of size and handling from my DSLRS (D500, D610). But $4K would be the starting point of the cost.  Compared to my used D610's $850 price tag and the D500's $900 cost.  I don't think the Z8 will fall to $900 anytime soon!  But, trading stuff in will help.  It may just be a matter of time for me.  I don't want to fence myself in by saying I will never get a mirrorless camera.  I hate to be wrong!
