Looking to buy a new mirrorless camera and having considered Sony, Nikon, Fuji, Olympus and Canon thinking about Z50. Low weight is super important. Primary use will be kid parties, park, travel etc. Ideally want to keep camera + lens < 600 gms. I tried many many lens and camera combinations and almost everything that I liked was around 500g - 550gms.

However it look like Nikon only has two Z mount DX lenses and nothing on the roadmap. I dont want to buy FX lenses as those are expensive and heavy. Ideally want

1. A 35 or 50mm F/2 prime

I think your best bet for low weight is the newly announced Fujifilm E4 (364g) and Xf 35mm f/2 (170g).

2. A zoom that covers 20mm to 50mm range with constant aperture of F/4

That's a pipe dream.  Constant f/4 lenses are all bigger and heavier than your weight budget allows.

Are you guys aware of any Z mount DX lenses that might come out in the next 12 months?

No, I think it's highly unlikely you will get what you want in Z DX.
