Which gimbal works best with the Nikon Z6? Moza Air 2, DJI, Zhiyun or some other brand.

The top two right now are the DJI Ronin-S and Zhiyun Crane 3 LAB. 

 

The DJI is the benchmark that everyone measures themselves against so you could say it is probably the best, and from what I have seen it still is. The Crane has a unique handle that you will either love or hate. Anything else might be borderline as far as payloads go, especially once you put a fast full frame lens on there (when Nikon finally actually make truly fast mirrorless glass).

I have owned one Nikkor with a mirror, the 500/8 catadioptric lens. I have also had access to another, the 1000/6.3 catadioptric. Cats are amazing lenses with a rendition that doesn't look like anything else.

:)  I have used a couple of different versions (non-OEM) back in the day on my Pentax...you are quite right about them!  But no, I still do not have one!

When contemplating a gimbal, one should also
consider a levelling base, a must… just saying.

Usually, a column should not be used along

Nikon Shooter, the OP asks about handheld stabilized gimbals for video use, not the gimbal heads for use on a tripod with a levelling base us old 'togs mean using the word.

It feels like that when youngsters use the same words for something completely different.
