In the 3 multiple choice answers, the first answer is a loaded presumptuous statement. A person may be looking for a camera body that is "king of low light".
But Nikon Z6 is NOT that.
The 2nd answer is a loaded insult against anyone who likes high megapixel cameras. Z7 is a 45.7 megapixel camera. Human beings adjust their expectations quickly as technology changes and consumer products become available within the affordability range of ordinary people. Long ago 3.2 megapixel cameras were common, then 5MP, then 8MP, then 10MP, then12 MP, then 16MP, then 20MP, then 24MP, then 30MP, then 40+MP, then now Sony A7R4 with 61 MP. Fuji GFX100 (so-called medium format) has 100 MP.
If insults were the normal behaviour, perhaps in a past era, people who owned 3.2MP cameras would unfairly label those wanting to buy 8MP cameras as pixel peepers.
Eventually 40+MP cameras would become common.
In computing, technology improves by leaps and bounds. Moore's Law applies in some way to digital photography products.
