Nikon Z cameras and concerts

When my new Nikon Z9 arrives, I expect it may take over as my preferred camera for concerts and performances. To date, my old Nikon D4s has been preferred, and I like the low-light performance and silence of my Sony a1. But it doesn’t do multiple exposures, nor does it autofocus quickly using my preferred 70-200mm f/2.8 lens.Meanwhile, my Nikon Z7 II has become my go-to camera for concerts. It is not as noise-free at ISO 6400 and ISO 3200 as my D4s, but the silent shutter is outstanding (especially at amplified acoustic concerts), its eye/face tracking is reasonable with F-mount 70-200mm f/2.8 VR I zoom lens and FTZ. And it does multiple exposures. I figure the Z9 will do an even better job. Here’s one with the zoom at 157mm, f/4.5, 1/200th second, ISO 3200.
