I see that the Z series will get a firmware update to do eye focus and even the change so you can use other form fitting cards in the XQD slot. Those I think should be available to the D850. Does any one see those rumors?

You know what the definition is of a RUMOR? Good.

Doubt it the future is Z.

The Z cameras have 90%, even PDAF on-sensor coverage and the D850 is probably closer to 20% gappy, off-sensor and 0% on-sensor PDAF coverage. I'm not thinking the Z firmware is going to port over very well.

For what it's worth, the Nikon dSLR 3D tracking is better than the Z's tracking.

Each has their strengths.
