I'm starting to think the Z system is going to gain some much-needed momentum in the coming months. Here are a couple things that could be strong indicators:
- Firmware: the upcoming update - if it further refines AF and adds CF Express compatibility - could bring the Z6/Z7 up a significant notch.
- Nikkor Z 70-200mm f/2.8S: the release of this optic could be a "best of both worlds" solution if it is as compact as the Canon equivalent and as good as the 70-200mm f/2.8E.
- D6: the fact that this body is being released fairly soon clears the way for Nikon to pull out all the stops in the next iteration of Z bodies. They'll be able to offer true pro-level gear in both their F- and Z- systems with freshly released products (and the larger profit margins associated with initial pricing of new products) in both DSLR and mirrorless simultaneously.
