I still say Z9F is very much a sideways somewhat downwards move compared to a Z9D.
For the most part I don't think the Z9F is that much better than a 900F for the money. Every model year mostly brings improvements and if the 900Fs successor was the 950G I would expect the 950G to be better than the Z9F.
It starts getting confusing with their letter tier performance structure
950G upper midrange...kinda like 930/940E
Z9F high end range
Z9G ultra high end range
Z9I super ultra high end range lol
The 940e had the best black levels, so should 950g not have even better black levels? Why are people assuming the 950G is a successor to the 900f and not the 940e (skip generation inheritance!). If not, what new large (80"+) TV from Sony would have very good black levels(at least as good as 900f, hopefully 940e) at "normal" prices?
