There's a post over on DPR of someone who received their 85/1.8 S already. From what I'm seeing, the backgrounds look pretty dang good.Wow! An 85/1.2. That will be the portrait photographer's dream lens for creamy smooth blurred backgrounds. I bet that will cost a small fortune.

I'm not yet ready to give up my 85/1.4 G, since it's great on the Z6 but always works as a pseudo 135mm on my D500, but the 85/1.8 S looks to be pretty damn good from what I'm seeing.
And yes, given the pricing of the f/1.8 S lenses, the f/1.2 S lenses are going to be heinously expensive.
It may be a multiple of the street price of the Z6. I'll keep using my f/1.4 AF-D even though it is MF on the FTZ.It will have to be small if we keep buying everything they send our way
Sorry the only one I see that I'd call bizarre is the Nikkor Z 28-70mm f/2.8-3.5 S. I prefer 24mm on the wide end over 28mm and (as I noted before) it has to offer "something" the others don't. If I had to guess that might be size, but it could also be OIS so it could support some form of Dual IS. There are samples with the Olympus Dual IS system producing acceptable results from 10s hand held shots with care.I think that this is someone just having a bit of fun, why would Nikon launch such a bizarre range of lenses? I am keen to see a 24-120 as that would replace my 24-70/f4 but only if it was sensibly sized and not the brick that was the old 24-120/f4. The 100-300 would be great and work well with the 24-120.
But my gut feeling is that this is just a well produced guesstimate of what Nikon may release in the forthcoming months.
Yep, that old brick, it produced great images and I loved the focal length, just not the weight when attached to a DSLR, a good but weighty lens. If Nikon can produce a 24-120 or 24-105 at F4 similar size to the 24-70/f4 then I will be heading towards the shop with my credit card.
One question on my mind is whether non-S means lower IQ, lower build quality, or both? Time will tell . . .
The 200-600 will have a Z-mount. It's not a S-line, just like the current 200-500 doesn't have a gold ring.I'm curious why the 200-600 (and a couple others) are on the Z lens road map if they're not a Z mount.
