    No, 90% of my shooting is with the Z6 but on this shoot the Z was busy on a tripod doing short video clips by actors in a casting. The Z6 wa flawless again for tracking the key fast in 93 short 2-3 minute actor tests of dialog and presence alone with another actor reading response dialog while the camera is on the one auditioning. Each actor had 3 such clips. Not one of them reviewed dropped focus on the animated actor.. I had two other cameras there and 40 lbs of lenses but used the little 24-70 f/4 for all but the head shots which were done with 85 1.8. The D800 was a backup since I did not want to take the Z6 off the tripod when we went to dinner down the hall. My only downside experienced has been video battery life since the rea display is on continuously. think I have enough confidence in the tracking now to turn off the display. That alone might cause me to add a Z6 2 because it can run on external power while shooting. If I find a weak battery I can take it apart and make an adaptor to run on an external power supply.
    Since these are paying gigs and getting very regular they can pay for the Z6 2. My other businesses are essentially in hibernation since the two largest ones are incoming tourism and that is just a trickle.

    For me, I still prefer the second shot in the original set. More for the composition, rather than the post processing. The pic of the gentleman leaning against the truck is just a snapshot. PP didn't change that in the post above this. However in the closeup of his head there is less distracting background, increased texture, more even lighting, and his pose, all of which combine to raise it from "snapshot" to "photography", imo. There's just a helluva lot more character showing through there - a gritty "warts and all" portrait that has much more appeal.

    I agree. Your last sentence sums it up nicely.

    Thank you both. I am again reminded that composition stands heavily with portrait photos.
