I'm not quite enthusiastic about Canon R and unfortunately this also seems to be first gen product with several unpleasant quirks. Esp. the sub par AF.... for this kind of money, come on! It should have delivered more!
Again, it also proves my initial point that Nikon Z is substantively behind where the Sony A7Rm3 is for continuous autofocus sequences.... :-(.
The banding kind of hampers the usability of the great dynamic range of the sensor too which is disappointing.
Again, despite being Nikon user at the moment, I consider the current Z line a kind of beta products for rather undemanding users. But yes, I'm demanding for a camera in key areas - sensor, autofocus, overall responsivness.
If you are not, it may be a great choice. But no doubt D850 is still a better option at the moment.
I just don't like to see I was so right in my initial judgement but... unfortunately I was. Precisely.
I'm interested in how quickly Nikon manages to improve the AF tracking performace in the next model which - for the price - is just ridiculous on Z7. Sorry, the other cons of Z7 are quite annoying, too. :-( But the competition is good in this segment and I'm really looking forward to the next gen products.
