I think if someone is buying this type of camera and spending this much they would likely be able to make there own mind up on what they need.

You can pick one up for an additional £250-£350, defo not double the price. Additional £350 worth investing in my opinion.

I disagree, hence the art of debate.

The A7R3 is £2400 on amazon, so hardly any comparison. If in your haste to reply you meant to say the A73 instead, it's also £450 more expensive. The Nikon is superior to either in many departments such as evf, ergonomics, menus, video quality, fps, no loss of speed or quality with adapted F-mount lenses.

I am referring to the A7R3, which is far superior in most departments vs the Nikon.

So you're comparing a grey import to a UK retail?

Import duties paid as mentioned in the description. Please do not attempt to divert the main cause of discussion, being the Camera comparison. I am simply sharing 1 of many links available if you Google A7R3, Amazon is not a monopoly. You can pick up a much better camera investing £250-£300, as stated in my initial comment.

Don't try and detract from the real point here and that is the price is the cheapest UK sold Nikon Z6.

The cost of this deal is not my argument, I actually voted hot based on price. My comment is simply airing that £250-£300 will buy you a far superior camera. Consider your options when spending this ballpark.

A7III is £300 more with current Sony cashback.

The "far superior" camera is debatable. If you want to mainly shoot video. It's the nikon, 144mbps vs100mbps and especially if the 12 bit RAW output comes to life.
Sony is renowned for poor menus. Do you want to take pics or faff around in menus to get your settings?
Buffer size? Do you really need to shoot more than 30 shots in a row?
So you can get better images with the sony sensor, does an everyday user need that quality? Not really, do they want to buy twice the amount of hard drives due to the much larger file size? Prob not.
The a7riii is a great camera but a niche product. For regular use the nikon is probably a better choice.

Does an everyday user need to spend £1.2K+ on a fancy camera in the first place?

I’m with @tellylover , we are not talking your average everyday user. I doubt many every day users would be willing to spend £1200 on a camera in the first place. I own both Sony and Nikon Mirrorless camera’s, based on my experience, I have never had an issue with the menu system, it’s actually quite user friendly and intuitive.

Need to no. If they can afford to and would like to yes.
Like everything in life value is relative. Some people think a couple of bottles of wine a week is worth while. Others a full sky sub, David Lloyd gym membership or even 20 cigarettes a day.
I have a Z6, as I already had Nikon FX glass.

As for Sony, do they have the edge in a few areas, yes they do. However I wouldn’t buy them as Sony are far to indecisive in they product designs. Menus and ergonomics make a huge difference when buying something at this level.
I also have an Olympus OMD E-M5 mk2 as a second camera for more compact situations and just cannot get along with it.
It's personal opinion with most cameras of this sort as image quality is hardly much different between them. I personally find the Sony bodies absolutely horrible to handle, although I have big hands, and they have many usability failings. They've done a great job getting where they are, but Nikon, and especially Canon, have mastered ergonomics to a much better degree for me.
Great camera BUT things that put me off are poor battery life, high cost of memory card and limited native lens!!

The battery life is excellent, I have one and get 700 shots easily. The memory is expensive, but hopefully with the up take of CFexpress (Nikon,Canon and Panasonic so far) and the imminent release of a compatible firmware this should start to fall. There aren't many native lenses currently, but what lenses have been released are stellar in image quality from the centre right out to the edges (Nikons 24-70 f2.8 S lens has no comparison for image quality in this range, the 85mm f1.8 S is also a top performer), there's also hundreds of fantastic Nikon f-mount glass that works just as good on the Z series as it does on the DSLR's.
