Here's some news for all of you Z users.  Nikon Rumours is more reliable than most.

So, now here will be a test for Nikon.

 

             Z                                                          F

  • 82mm filter                                        (F-mount: 82mm)
  • 17 elements in 15 groups                 (F-mount: 20 elements in 16 groups)
  • 2 ED and 4 aspherical elements    (F-mount: 2 ED and 3 aspherical)
  • Minimum focus distance: 38cm    (F-mount: 38cm)
  • Weight: around 800g                      (F-mount: 1070g)
  • Lens hood included
  • No collapsible barrel                    
  • Cost $2,299.95                                      Cost: $2,396.95

 

I don't know if I have the heart for this.  270g lighter than the F mount.    Z and Z lens: 1475g  (52.1 oz)  D850 with F mount 24-70: 2075g (73.2 oz).


Thanks, Dennis.

The hard part with the 24-70 is going to be two things - performance and cost.  I fully expect the lens to be significantly sharper than the current 24-70 with less distortion and CA.  That's the point of the Z-mount.  It also should be the same price or a little cheaper since it does not need a VR motor and related optics.  

 

On the other hand, the kit lens 24-70 f/4 is quite good, very small, and light.  I'm not sure I need three 24-70 lenses - f/2.8 F-mount, f/4, and f/2.8 Z mount.

My wife has the z7 with the 24-70/4. I can use it on my z6. I don't have that range in F mount. I have a 28-70/2.8, but that is pretty heavy.

I updated the price in my previous post.

 

The F4s version is $996.95, the F2.8s is $2,299.95. $1,303 more for an extra stop and a bit of DOF. so, now, I'm wondering.

 

1) I got the F4 version for my wife's Z 7, so I can use that.

2) I have the F mount 28-70/2.8D, and can use that with the FTZ adapter if I need the extra stop or DOF. But it's a tank.

3) The 14-30 F4s is $1,296.95. Less than the difference between those two lenses.

 

Using the Z6, I could get that extra stop with ISO at no noise cost. Bokeh, I can fake that by moving the subject closer to the lens. And fo landscape, I wouldn't care as I normally shoot between F11 and F8. and with the Z6 being able to focus stack, then F8 would be the winner. So, If I had money, I probably go for the 14-30 and just use the 24-70/f4.  

 

 

May wallet just kicked me in my..... well, you know.  Where did I put my nitro pills?

I think I'll stick with my Tammy 24-70/2.8.  If I upgrade to a Z series body, the adaptor is way cheaper than a new lens.  :)
