My f mount 70-200/f4 will cover most of my telephoto needs, however I am hoping to move to the coast next year so a 100-400 may work better if I get into BIF or sea life photography, we will see how the lens performs and what price it settles down at.I'm thinking a well implemented 100-400 f/xx would scratch my itch much better than a 70-200/4. But, they should have had a 70-200/4 on the roadmap all along.
Yeah the f/4 lens is like the 2nd child living in the shadows of #1.My f mount 70-200/f4 will cover most of my telephoto needs, however I am hoping to move to the coast next year so a 100-400 may work better if I get into BIF or sea life photography, we will see how the lens performs and what price it settles down at.
Somewhere in my ageing memory rests a comment that I heard or read somewhere a year or so ago, Nikon's 70-200/f4 is Nikon's least loved zoom lens, although it has light weight, excellent sharpness, top draw AF, good VR, it has never captured the imagination of the public who either go f2.8 or pick something like the 80-400 or 3rd party equivalent.
It's an official announcement that the lens is planned. Note that the document also says "the contents of this lineup are subject to change.""Lenses to be announced are indicated in yellow."
Does that just indicate a planned lens, but not the official announcement of that lens?
Yep......this continued lack of a macro Z lens is a sticking-point for me. Sorry, Nikon, you're still pushing me away and I'm gazing more intently at Sony, which offers a gorgeous 90mm macro among other treats..... I've been dragging my heels about doing anything, kind of hoping that Nikon would be soon adding a macro to their Z lenses but that doesn't seem to be happening. No, I do not want to use the FTZ adapter and I think it only would work with one of my macro lenses and not too many of my others anyway. Sigh. I really prefer native lenses to using adapters.Set some money by if this verifies; it pretty well fills out my wish list. It's disappointing, however, that there are no macro lenses on this list.
