just took the z8 plunge!

Big bucks (even on sale) for me. I am moving from an x-h2s. After trying for 6 months, I could never get reliable autofocus--just always jittery, 3 shots in focus, 2 not, 2 more in focus, 4 not, etc.

I'll be using it almost exclusively for wildlife with the 500 pf (as I was using with the x-h2s, with the fringer adapter).

I used to have a d500 and loved it. Even that was much more reliable AF, and it seems that the z8 will be in that ballpark.

A bit nervous about losing pixels-on-bird (but hopefully these will be better pixels      Any thoughts?

Anybody use the old 1.4 TC iii with the z8 and 500mm?

Anybody else make the same switch?
