    Raise your hand, Z owners!

    Hi, Don't know where to put this thread. Since I now own and play with a z6ii, here is a new thread at Z6/Z6ii. It's interesting (and valuable) to know (and to learn from) the members here who own and use Z cameras. So I sincerely ask you, all z owners, to raise your hand for a head count and state a brief (or detailed) using experience, etc. I received my z6ii just a little more than one month ago. Before that, I used D3500 for about 2.5 years. So far I am happy with my z6ii and lenses: Z24-120mmS, sigma 150-600mmC, and other F lenses. I plan to add Z 20mm f1.8 S to close all applications (maybe + a macro?)

    My count: +1

    Please continue to add.

    Z7 II. Purchased hesitantly (is that the right word?) but now very much enjoyed! Z 40/2, Z 24-70/4 S, Z 50/1.8 S and FTZII. Still have and use a D750 and D500.

    Raise your hand, Z owners!
    I've had my Z5 since Feb this year. I haven't had a chance to use it as much as I might like, I've only got a couple K on it. Most of that has been around the yard. I was using the hand me down D3400 for about 6 months prior to that. The more I use the Z5, the more I hate to go back to the D3400, which I now only do when I feel I need the extra reach with a telephoto.

    I got it with the Z 24-70 F4, and am using the 200-500 F5.6 F mount with an FTZ adapter.

    Been very happy with the Z system.

    Bought it primarily to shoot photos but its used heavily for videos as well now too. Never once have I regretted the lack of a second memory card or a grip like the internet told me I would. I did add a Smallrig L bracket that helps fill my biggish hands. I found that without it, my pinky would fall off the bottom of the camera and on extended shoots was extremely uncomfortable, plus it helps balance larger lenses and has better strap attachment locations for a more comfortable rest position, not to mention the ease of attaching a tripod now. Love love love focus peaking and IBIS, powerful features that IMO make my DSLR's obsolete.

    Had it about 6 weeks. I do mainly general photography (whatever I like), family, and usually church functions. I've been just really learning the camera so far (setting it up, test pictures, etc.). I've been very impressed with its performance in low light and higher ISO. So much, much better than the old D7000. The feel/shape also reminds me of my long-gone 35mm film camera. My only regret is not being able to get a 24-120 lens. The 24-70 kit lens is very good but I feel that I would like the extra reach of the 120.

    Glad you enjoy your z7ii. Since you also use D500 (must have lot experience), did you ever compare the two for wildlife AF-C tracking performance? Please share if you did and comment on this area.

    Look like you make all set on your z6 system with comfort. I got Wimberley P30 lens plate to work with my Sigma 150-600mm C, but am still waiting for SunwayFOTO's z6ii l-bracket. Isn't focus peaking only works with Z lenses? AW, it's nice feature.

    I have 24-120 lens and like it because it's S version. The 24-70 kit lens is well known for its all around performance. But if you like far reach, you probably want to shoot for 24-200 (if 400mm is out of budget. it is for me). I take 24-120 solely for the S version. Oh, it's heavy too! (for my old hands only )

    Same request: share your comparison on wildlife AF_C tracking performance between D500 and z6ii. Thanks
