Dpreview: “With new AF firmware, Nikon’s Z6 & Z7 just got more competitive”

Dpreview published the article “With new AF firmware, Nikon’s Z6 & Z7 just got more competitive” analyzing the latest Nikon Z AF firmware updates. Here is their conclusion:

My goal in this article was to determine when and where the newly introduced Nikon Z6 / 7 Eye AF worked well, and when it didn’t. I tested the performance side-by-side with the Sony a7R III but also considered the best implementation from a usability point-of-view, which is the system in the Sony a9 and a6400.

Because this is a complicated thing to test (thanks for reading this far), I’ve broken our findings up according to four criteria, with winners indicated in bold.

Detecting eyes: Nikon Z
Avoiding false positives: Sony
Eye AF ease-of-use: Sony
Accuracy of Eye AF: Sony

Considering the updates in the Z6 and Z7 represent Nikon’s first stab at Eye AF, this is really impressive.
