Nikon Z mount vs F mount lenses Image Quality - Is the upgrade worth it?
1

Hello everyone!!

I recently got a Nikon Z7 and am wondering, I understand that the Z mounts are a bit less heavy / better aesthetic for the Z body and was going to buy Z lenses for it but I tried my DX 35mm f/1.8 on it yesterday and the pictures are REALLY sharp - This makes me wonder, besides having to slap a FTZ adapter (bit more weight) and slightly heavier F lenses, IS THERE REALLY A IMAGE QUALITY DIFFERENCE between the F and Z lenses that warrants paying 2-3x more for Z lenses when there are ALOT of used F lenses in great shape out there?
Thinking about 35mm, 50mm, 85mm, 105mm and the popular zoom lenses like 24-70mm  and 70-200mm
I've looked at many videos, and many posts before posting this, and I am not quite convinced... Yes I like to pixel peep and thought the Z lenses were better enough to warrant the price difference but after trying my DX 35mm (not even FX) I am not sure anymore.
Thanks in advance!!
