A few things mostly related to going from dslr to mirrorless. Like the fact that the camera goes into a power save mode rather quickly and with the d750 you tap the shutter and it's almost instantly up and focusing. The z requires it to "wake up" takes like 2 seconds which doesnt sound like a lot but when It goes Into sleep more every min of not being used it gets annoying. The led viewfinder is badass and it will sense when you are looking through the viewfinder or led screen and switch between them automatically but if you want it to just use the viewfinder and keep the led just for review it is not very clearly illustrated when this mode is entered bc you use a button on the side of the EVF to cycle through several modes for the screen and I dont know which one I am in until I take a pic... so one mode everything is off, another mode the EVF is one the screen is off and it wont turn on for review. Another it alternates, and another EVF is on and only uses screen for review. But it's hard knowing which you have chosen. My old 17mm tokina rig shot lens doesnt have AF with the z mount adapter. But the better screen tells me easier when I get the focus compared to d750. I swear the lenses with the adapter have some weird close focus low light issues sometimes but it might be do to the fact that the lens barrels are usually so large it blocks the green light for the AF points? My sb700 speedlight works but the red laser to help with AF doesnt work with mirrorless....

But... the noise is so low. The d750 was great and this I have done back to back comparisons on a tripod and the d750 at iso 1000 is about the same as iso 2000 on the z6 most instances. And the IBIS works ok. Although come to find out with non z lenses its 3 axis stabilization not 5..

Interesting about the EVF. The only issue I have with the A7iii EVF (and screen) is that they are both ass trash. Iím sure the next gen will see an improvement.

And canít you adjust the settings so that the camera doesnít fall asleep so quickly?

Glad you like it overall though. The d750 was such a good camera for the money. Still is. Iím surprised ISO performance is that much better.

Yeah the evf is nice very detailed and colors are great. You can even keep your eye on the viewfinder and zoom in and peek around the picture for sharpness without taking your eye off it. Yeah the reviews I saw put the d750 and z6 similar in iso but you can really tell a diff in those upper ranges plus the overall range is higher. I havent messed with the face detect bc when I do portraits my focal plane is so thin I dont want to risk any AI missing the shot so I have just left it on single point manual.

I am sure you can adjust the display timer but it's a balance between battery life and accessibility bc the battery like from the d750 to the z6 is about half as many pics. I did use it over the weekend shooting an event and got 600 pics out of it which it a lot more than they say is possible. They have it quoted as being able to take like high 300

Am I crazy for wanting to sell the 85mm 1.8g for a sigma 35mm 1.4?

I almost never use the 85mm. For portraits i have been using the 135mm and 24-70 2.8, and car shots the same. The 85mm is just too soft wide open and the CA is pretty bad.

It's a great lens for budget bokeh when you just get into photography and think everything has to be really out of focus behind it. Bit I like the 135 for that. After shooting for a while I almost prefer the look of my 24 to 70 shot at like f10 than the 85mm at 1.8. Plus I dont have a general purpose low light lens I can use for a walking around lens the 24 to 70 is big heavy and 2.8 makes it not the best in low light.

I guess it depends on how/what you're shooting. I would never get rid of my 85 1.4D for a 35, but that's just because I prefer the 85. I have a 24-70 for anything 35mm related, and a Sigma Art 50 1.4 that I hardly touch. So it all depends on what you like/want out of it.


I'm thinking I should've turned the car into the sun for this. So it wouldn't blow out the side of the car

I think it's because I am always strobing my shots now and the glass I do have is just so much better than the 85mm 1.8g that I see its issues more. I also bought an 85mm 1.4g years ago and it wasnt enough of a difference for me to justify the cost at the time soni returned it. Maybe I should rent one from lensrentals and see for myself

Colors aren't bad but the hot spot off to the right seems too localized4
