    Why so little interest here on the forum in the Z6/7?

    I think this is the only forum here interest in the Z cameras is so muted. I got a loaner for a week as the first one a store got in last month but since that time the supply has been good, with weekly additions reaching their warehouse. It appears that they sell a Z7 very 3 days as a kit($4300 Z7/FTZ/24-70 f/4/64gig XQD) and a Z6 kit or camera daily. There are many stores so it is certainly selling faster than D850s here when it was introduced(every Nikon dealer has a D850 on display and the price is down to $3100 here, when it was $3600 for the last year, which includes the 18%VAT)
    My take on the Z cameras is that they are rugged pro-build, feel great in hand, more solid than the competition or even Nikon DSLRs and great IQ. The FTZ allowed my old manual lenses get lots of use, like my 50 1.2 that is still made. I bought mine new in 2012. It is a dream to focus on the Z7, even better than the micro-prism focusing screens of the heyday of film.
    The AF is not as good in low light in area modes as the D850 but sure is better than my D800in the same conditions. IQ is better, the touch screen focus point selection is the quickest in the industry. The displace processor is much faster than the Sony, with higher touch resolution.
    So why are Nikonites not talking about or interested in these cameras? I am going to get the Z7 towards the end of the week, body and FTZ and I will use my current F lenses until I start collecting Z mount lenses. The 35mm 1.8 S native lens for the Z camera is already being called the best 35mm lens of and brand and the kit 24-70 f/4 is noticeably better for corner to corner sharpness and lack of distortion of the 3 times more expensive 24-70 2.8E. The buyers I have spoken with have been very enthusiastic in their praise of their Z6 or Z7 including some coming from Sony or the D850.

    I can't speak for others but I'm waiting a year to see how Nikon and Sony shake out... The mirrorless camera is a big enough system departure from the standard DSLR at this point that moving to a new system could mean someone other than Nikon.

    Speaking for myself it's because I have a D750 I'm very happy with and the Z series holds no interest for me.

    The D750 has put me out of the gear-race for the foreseeable future.

    Because I splurged on a D850... and it's too soon to start thinking about a whole replacement system.

    I did look at the Nikon Z7 at a local camera shop. It felt good, but I'm not shooting enough anymore to make me regret the size or features on what I have. I would like an electronic viewfinder for some things...

    I don't need anything the Z6 or Z7 offers. The D500 is still a better camera for sports and wildlife, which are my main interests. I am quite happy with the quality of my D7200 for landscapes.

    The z's are a solution to some problem I'm sure. But not for me.

    I did give some thought to the Z6 before buying the D500 but for wildlife the D500 has the edge in most things,what i do like about mirrorless is the EVF, i feel it shows the picture i wll take better than an OVF.
