Are Nikon's S lenses pushing the Z-mount envelope?
14

I dimensioned the three initial Z-mount lenses from their diagrams:

Zoom

35

50

It appears that two of the three could have been done in E-mount, but not the 50, although it's conceivable that the 35 would have an interference problem. So, if there were advantages of the Z-mount over the E-mount for lenses of these focal lengths and apertures, Nikon left something on the table.
