But the Z lens is only a 100-400mm, in place of a 200-500mm. I'm thinking it will be the same f/5.6, giving it a chance of being somewhat smaller and lighter. My fingers are crossed, anyway.

According to the published photo of the Z roadmap, the 100-400 S silhouette appears to be about the same size as the Z 70-200f/2.8 S. So it will be considerably smaller and lighter than the 200-600 whose silhouette appears to be in ballpark of the 400 and 600 S primes.

If I've seen that photo, I don't remember it. Do you think the 100-400 might be an f/4? That would be very nice. I'm thankful to have a 200-500 that performs as well as it does. It's probably what I will have for some time to come. I dream a lot more than buy.


The diameter of the 100-400 appears to be a bit less than the 70-200 2.8 so who knows?
