I am not sure if that is the right place, yet:

The dealer in town who has only black Zf-bodies in stock, told me that my Z6 only supports XQD and Not CFx cards even with the newest firmware update.

That is, he told me, the reason for the Z6 price dropping to next to nothing.

Yet I read somewhere on the net that the Z6 supports CFx as well as XQD with the new firmware.

No, the dealer says, that ios only true for the Z6II

Please help

Thank you

I just used my Lexar 128GB card in my Z6, so yes it works.
FW 3.60

CFexpress type B should work fine with the latest FW.

Your store likely is just trying to justify a low trade-in price. Call their bluff by showing the above page of the online manual.

Frank, support for Compact Flash B cards came quite a while back -  around FW release  2.10 and 2.20, and we are now up to FW release 3.60 for the Z6(I).

Thank you.

I told him right in the shop that I think he was not remembering well.

As I got 6 XQD cards and all of them are fast enough, it is not really my problem.

And yes, he tried to lower the trade in price to 400€

And no, I will not let go of the Z6 for that price in a shop I paid a premium for many cameras because I wanted to be and was the first in Germany to have one...
