I assume when you add the battery grip it will be the same size as the Z9.

It's actually considerably bigger than the Z9 with the grip on. Most people who want this camera won't even consider the battery grip and will just take batteries instead.

I’ll have one of these in a year or two when they come up used for $3k.

Serious though, looks like everything I could ask for and the price is spot on.

Nice camera. Now i hope they can focus on the 35 1.2 and giving pre-release for RAW (i hope to have it on my Z9 before the next basketball season starts!).

Congrats to those that have been waiting !

I'm waiting to see what the Z6III looks like but this might be contender for me in a year or two.

Would've been nice if Z9 had one CFE slot and one SD like this one. It would've saved me a lot of irritation (and expense...)

I just bought a 2nd Delkin Black CFE, so I don't want to talk about this right now

Why? I love having to CF express.
I always prefer to have two of the same either if in back-up or sequential.

If you're shooting redundant on a high performance stacked camera, having SD as the backup option sucks. I'd much rather have matching CFE, but I get that it's a space and money thing to a degree. Sounds silly, but MANY shooters coming from worse cameras will be very happy it has SD.

I'm not one of them, but oh well.

You generally won't see that in flagship camera bodies (especially the larger ones with built in grip) because camera performance and other features are crippled by such a slow slot like a SD UHSII. That also prevents you from using the second slot as a backup assuming you also want to get the full potential out of the camera and/or access all of it's features.

'cause I have quite a few SD cards from using other cameras, and a slot for these in the laptop. With the new cards, I need a new external reader (not to mention that I had to buy two expensive cards at once to stick in the camera, for redundancy).

Still don't have the card reader - can't be bothered to spend the time looking for it on the flea market ATM - so I can't even update the firmware as it has to be written to the card, and just connecting the camera with a USB cable doesn't count as mass storage. Go figure, Nikon was always better than Canon in this regard before, and now it's the same.

Considering the price for a z9, a reader is truly peanuts though.

USB has worked fine for me so far on the Z9. I prefer to leave my cards in the camera as much as possible to keep wear and tear low on both the card and slot.
