If you are an existing Nikonian, upgrading to Z6 is better. You can save a few thousands by doing so.

But if you have some money lying around the spend, going into A7iii also okay but those lenses are very expensive

yeah sony Gmaster lens is so expensive but for me i think A7 III + Zeiss 24-70mm F4 is good enough

F4 no gooding. Been a photographer with 16-35 F4 and a few other lenses. I dont really use F4. Photos hard to pop unless im shooting group photos/landscape. If you're a fan of portrait, please dont get F4. No worth it at all.

yeah i know that, i've been living with f2.8 & f1.8 lens all the time but there's no way for me to buy Sony 24-70mm F2.8..the price is f***ing insane..this time need to sacrifice my wide apperture lens to be able to migrate to sony system..perhaps 3rd party f2.8 lens?

I happen to be in your shoe previously, and I decided on Nikon Z6. Mainly cause the A7III doesn't feel nice to hold, but the A7R4 is a different story now.

Transition from D800 to Z6 was pretty seamless. And all my lens works fine on the Z6 (1635 f/4, 50 1.8G, 35 1.4G, 85 1.4G, 70200 VR2)

I got the Z6 with kit lens f/4 which is very sharp and compact, later on I also replaced the 50 1.8G to the 1.8S, two totally different quality lens. The 50 1.8S is my sharpest prime which puts even my 85 1.4G to shame by miles.

tq thats inspiring me..give me more strenght to do this..

Improvements which I can think off at the moment,

1. IBIS
2. Access to Z-mount which has superior optics vs. the f-mount (50 1.8S is crazy sharp, I never liked 50mm cause the Nikons are crap, my 1.8G buy already never even use much but now the most common lens on my Z6 is the 50mm)
3. Smaller body, lighter!
4. 4K30p video
5. Eye-AF (yay, no need adjust the points manually most of the time, but I do miss the 3D Tracking from D800).
6. XQD is blazing fast when transferring to PC vs. the CF cards I have which are rated 90 MB/s only.
7. WYSWYG live view, well most of the it works la (of course OVF is better, but I'm somewhat used to the lag, so I usually pre click before the snapshot nowadays).
8. Well... another pros I think is the SnapBridge implementation, I shoot RAW but the app is smart enough to convert to jpeg before transfer to my phone. Fuji doesn't do this, need to manually convert on camera to jpeg then only transfer through the app.
9. Tilt screen and touch screen! Well sadly it doesn't have 180 view for selfie like the Z50

All in all I'm happy with Z6, sufficient for me now as I don't do much paid rigs already, though this year am going for Super GT... lets see how well the AF handles panning shots.

wow thats nice..thanks for your explanation..from what i read before af system in Z60 far more better than D800
now i must decide A7 III or Z60
