Thanks for your service. Vet here myself. The z6 will be an amazing piece of gear in the field. Look at getting a gnarbox to backup your images in the field. The 24-70 f4 is an amazing lens and will be very versatile and compact enough to not hinder the rest of your load out too much. Good luck and keep your head down!I just ordered a Z6 and waiting for it to arrive. I love the colors from Canon and how there are different color options in raw. Does Nikon offer something similar? Also, as an introduction, I will be using the Z6 as an Army photojournalist. Can’t wait!
