That Canon link is now linking to the Nikon Z9 sports camera

My experience is that the camera is switched on, then brought up toeye level. That easily takes 0.6 s to 1 s or even more with a heavy lens. Between switching a camera on and actually operating it, 1 s is absolutely negligible.

Especially with a long lens, the camera is usually resting on a monopod. So either switched on by default (draining battery in case of a ML) or in standby. Where startup time is similar.

I, personally, switch off the camera regularly. On the Nikons, the On/Off switch is at your index fingertip anyway.

No, that is with regular chimping.

No difference to a D5. There has been reliable AF before mirrorless cameras happened Wink

Maybe, but we're discussing very specific pro photographer needs. Any sports shooter will probably have the same frame of reference, old-fashioned or not. Press photographers have similar, but not identical needs. To adress that group first with a rugged pro ML body might be the smartest approach. Could be a slightly easier target. See Sony's recent Ap deal, for example. It's a move in that direction.
