The Nikon Z6 features a 24.5MP CMOS. It can achieve more balanced performance, better ISO and faster continuous focusing. The Z6 and Z7 focus systems are different. Although The 273 point focus system is not as powerful as Z7, the coverage areas have not been reduced caused by numbers of focus points.
