    I've had great success shooting my crazy dog using the original Z6 and the 70-200 VR2 and 300/2.8 AF-S II. Here's an album with those photos: https://www.flickr.com/photos/luftwalk/albums/72157706365176231/with/49369262197/ I've also included a whole series of 20+ photos of my dog running...

    I think the biggest question I would have is if the EVF "slideshow" in H* 12 FPS mode is any smoother in the Z6 II?

    I'm usually using Wide-S...but you need to learn to "predict" movement a bit because of the "slideshow" in the EVF. AF-A with animal Eye AF works reasonably well if you're in an open field with no clutter to confuse the AF system....or if the dog is a bigger part of the image so it can pick up...

    I'd have no issues recommending a Z6 II for what you're describing....I'm using the original Z6 capturing my dog in action and I've had great results. Photos here: https://www.flickr.com/photos/luftwalk/albums/72157714331068162 I'd go with the Z6 II over the Z7 II simply due to better high ISO...

    Can you compare AF between them? I'm especially interested if the Z6 II has less delay in its' slideshow EVF mode than the MK I

    Do tell.....how does it differ compared to the Z6? If you can test AF-C in Extended FPS mode, I'd be grateful :)

    A lockdown walk with my dog in the neighbourly woods :) Curious how much of an improvement the Z6 II would be for these kind of shots...bigger buffer would definitely help, but I'll wait to see how AF stacks up...if it's a significant improvement I might get it. I heard her coming up behind me...

    The Sony probably does have an edge when it comes to AF-C and tracking in general, but that doesn't mean the Zs are incapable of action shots. Some from today, using a Z6 and an old F mount 300/2.8: Ajka by luftwalk, on Flickr Ajka by luftwalk, on Flickr Ajka by luftwalk, on Flickr

    @gilbouk I've had the Tamron G2 and I replaced it with a VR2 that I still own. The reason was that in AF-C and tracking the VR2 just ran circles around the Tamron. Tried on both the D750 and the Z6 bodies and I consistently had a lot more in focus shots with the Nikon than with the Tamron.

    Something a bit different from my usual photos of dogs.... Caught the mouflon peaking at me during my hike up a mountain and when I came to the clearing I happened upon a herd of fallow deer, which were really quite comfortable with me walking around and taking photos... Stalking me by...

    Nikon Z5

    Just want to say this is wrong. The Z6 offers 12 FPS with full AF and full AE. The FPS is one of the reasons I bought the camera. For my kind of shooting the Z5 is non viable simply because of that limitation. My camera lives in AFC and 12 FPS mode...in my opinion, the difference between the...

    I usually wouldn't post one after the other, but really like this shot of my dog...maybe a bit more room around it (it's a full frame), but it somehow jumps out for me. In the woods by luftwalk, on Flickr
