DPReview is in my eyes a reliable source of information and really glad you're having your site like you do!In my initial testing I was finding the AF-C quite unreliable and did some tests because I wondered if my lens or camera was bad.To make a long story short, I found that I had problems because I tried the camera in the evening with artificial light and read afterwards, that the Z5 only focuses down to -2EV ( -3EV with low light AF setting) while the Z6 goes down to -4EV (-6EV low light setting), and the Z6ii even to -4.5EV (-6EV).My opinion is that you should have elaborated a litte more on that, because there are quite a few people that shoot in not too bright (while not really dim) artificial light and that difference to the Z6 can't be expected when one reads your review.
