"RE: Learning curve for Z7/Z6"

A reason to keep d8: Apply Settings to Live View on speed dial is a tip from Thom that this improves AF speed. I’ll certainly try it for BIF when I can get along without the live histogram.

I find the AF with the 24-70 S series lens to be very responsive. My lenses that are responsive on my DSLRs, e.g., 24-70 f4 and 70-200 f2.8, are extremely responsive through the adapter on my Z6 as well. My 80-400, not so much. So acquiring, tracking and focusing on BIF is more difficult with the 80-400 and the Z6. I’m still experimenting with both Dynamic-area AF and Wide-area AF (S). I look forward to seeing more information from Nikon about how the new AF system operates.

One of the biggest adjustments I’ve found is the Z7/Z6 cameras reverting to sleep mode. I recognize this is perfectly reasonable from live view and I’ve experienced this with other mirrorless cameras. But from my DSLRs, I’ve had to adjust to either keep the camera live, or anticipate the lag to bring it back to life for a shot. I’ve reset my Z6 to a minute from the default 30 s before it signs off. If I was concerned with silent operation, I expect I would need to make further adjustments, though I haven't seen noisy operation mentioned.
