But can it take photos of a kid on a zip line coming towards you using a 35 1.4 @ 1.4 @ 10fps and nail pretty much every shot on the eyes?
Maybe he doesn't need it to take shots like that ;)

TBH one member posted a series of photos of their dog running towards them at full pelt and it pretty much nailed every one. I found it impressive, and surprising tbh as I didn't think the AF was as good as that (y)

went out with the z6 for the first time down the local river to check/test took a couple of shots and tried to look at them pic came up then went away again then the control
panel would go blank pressed the button on top of camera and came back on the off again straight away same with the screen so packed up went home to phone camera world which I had just got it from but tested it again in house and all works as it should there might have been some user error rather than the camera has anyone else had the same problem

Try blowing on the eye sensor in the viewfinder. Always blocks up - the tiniest spec or hair will stop it working. Rally needs a sensitivity adjuster.

Don’t think it’s faulty. Sound like the default playback settings.

How long before the photo went off? I've found the Z7 goes to sleep much faster than other cameras I've used by default.

No but that’s an extreme scenario and difficult for a D850 let alone a Z camera.

That member was me and I still have the sequence if anyone is interested :) I like shooting action and for me, the Z6 is a vast improvement over the D750.

After reading all the Nikon Z range feedback I've've decided that now is the right time to join the Nikon Z6 community. Once the XQD card and reader has arrived I'll be able to complete the firmware upgrade, move on to familiarizing and some test shots.

I look forward to participating in the lively discussions.

Knew I could rely on you lol I’ll await your feedback
OK, just tested, can't see anything mind blowingly obvious tbh, but that's just focusing on things around the lounge. Maybe you see more of a difference with tracking, but in terms of acquisition I'm not seeing anything obvious on the Z7. Sometimes I think it might be, but then I don't know if that's in my head, but again even if it is it's nothing obvious.

I am really interested to see how you get on with the camera and in particular the 16-50 lens.... Enjoy.

I would speak to them first. Depends on when they will have stock, how the price compares with other UK dealers who have it in stock, and how quickly you need it.

I assume you mean stock ;) I bought mine from there no issue, but if you're not happy and want to get one quicker elsewhere then I'm sure it wouldn't be an issue getting a refund, but obviously contact them first.
