Learning curve for Z7/Z6

"RE: Learning curve for Z7/Z6"

Interesting choice of what to assign to the programmable buttons. The choice of programability is indeed one of the wonderful features of the Z series Nikons.

Before my Z6, I used a D800 with the function selector ring on the top left (see image).

For me, of the four choices:
QUAL: I always shoot RAW and did not often need to change this, if at all.

I'm just loving my Z6!
