Sony Z90: When an a7 III or GH5 Won't Do?

Buy Sony PXW-Z90 at B&H,  Amazon, or  Adorama 

Even for us hybrid guys, sometimes a dedicated camcorder is the better option -- especially when it's the Z90 with its punching-way-above-its-weight-class, one inch sensor with phase detect hybrid autofocus lifted directly from the Sony RX10 Mark IV. The image quality (IQ) is stellar, sensor working hand-in-glove with the outstanding Zeiss Vario-Sonnar f/2.8-4 lens -- at least in good light. The pricing is so aggressive and the camera so good that Canon and Sony have had to lower the prices of their competing models.

But the ergonomics and software interface -- collectively, the user experience (UX) is frustrating. Sigh.
