    He does aggravate the fire out of me with some of his conclusions and their timing, but that is just an old engineering and marketing guys slant.

    The lens price is disappointing but regrettably not surprising. It is a new Nikon Lens. It is only about $400 more that the 2015 model F mount.

    Anyway, it really does sound like this is a great lens. I'm glad, because that's the lens a very high percentage of photographers use a majority of the time.

    Let's see more pictures, Dan! Keep that new camera warmed up and active!
    He lost me around the same time. I do need to get out more with the camera. I have just been having a couple weeks... Hoping things will improve.

    Nikon Z 24-70mm f/2.8 S: The Best 24-70mm Zoom on the Market
    After using both my 24-70 2.8 g and E versions, it was very obvious that the 24-70 f/4 S lens was optically superior. No one who has used all three suggests the f mounts are better then either the f/4 or f/2.8 S lenses

    Here is a test that shows what we have found. The G version without VR I find to be better than the much more expensive E version, bit both trail the S lenses.

    Ricci's tests of the 14-30 were pretty conclusive over the 14-24 2.8G
    Here is an interesting comparison of the Z6 to Nikon's best low light cameras, Df and D5

    On of the most compelling reasons for moving to Z bodies is the Z lenses which are all sharper corner to corner than the competition. Even if some lenses can approach the center sharpness, none compete across the entire frame

    I have become so impressed with the performance and handling of the Z6 that I recently sold my D850 because it is worth more now than if I delay, and it just sits in the shelf. I kept the D800 because it is worth more to me than what I could get for it. I will use the D850 money to add a Z7 to the kt and that will allow me to sell of my F glass. The sale was just before the 2.0 firmware was released. Now with the new AF, it an even more pleased with my decision to sell the D850. I loved the camera, it is very competent but the Z cameras just do more of what benefits my shooting subjects and and styles.I just shot a package of environmentals and head shots for an actor this afternoon and I had her just free pose, moving continuously and the AF tracked perfectly, 93 shots and not one missed focus. I have switched my portrait sessions from 45mpx to 24mpx since there is so little need to crop with a Z camera
