Thanks for the test. The Z is a bit better in the center but in der corners the difference is remarkable.

Would be interesting to have the same done with the VR version and at a shot at infinity.

Can't wait to get mine.

he S lens seem amazing, but the g is not bad either. There little value to be gain from switching in a commercial sense as the rendering is very similar if not pixel peeping.

No, it's not bad at all. In my opinion at least the G and VR are optimized differently, the G for portraiture and the VR toward landscapes. Not sure yet where to put the S though.

And of course you can do great shots with all of them. From the technical standpoint it's still quite a difference between the G and the S especially in the corners. If it's worth to spend this much money is another question. For me it's mostly the non optical properties and of course a lot of GAS 😂.
