Notes:

Z-FX Transport: Nanuk 920 w/ shoulder strap or Gregory Tetrad40 or Northface Solaris40 and Tenba BYOB-13 / Lowepro BP-150

Promaster compact case:
-remove the inside velcro padding
-relocate rain cover to the side pocket (or put extra battery)
-place Z50+16-50 sideways with the lens pointing toward the front zipper pocket
-adjust for long shoulder strap and make an "L" with one side over the collar bone and the other over the hip bone for comfort.

d3300/d5500 (past bodies):
AF-P fully compatible, VR on/off possible in shooting menu (software)

d7200:
AF-P fully compatible with 70-300 FX VR AF-P
- physical VR switch on the lens with OFF/NORMAL/SPORT settings

AF-P *NOT* fully compatible with 10-20 DX VR AF-P or 18-55 DX VR AF-P or 70-300 DX VR AF-P:
-VR is always on, NO menu or physical VR on/off switch on the lens

semi work-around: Use the AF-ON button

AF-ON Setup d7200: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gc_SM_H22lg

How it works:
When AF-ON button is engaged, VR is ON.
When AF-On button is disengaged, VR is OFF and pictures can be taken.
