We are missing a lens in this cheaper short telephoto range what would you prefer Nikon to add to the lens roadmap.

If it is a Z 70-200 f/4 S it cost about 50% of the 70-200 f/2.8 and is the best choice of the owners who have the Z 14-30 f/4 S and the Z 24-70 f/4 S.

A Z 70-300 f 4.5-6.3 (non S) cost about 50% of a Z 70-200 f/4 S and I don't see who need it on a Z camera. It was a good choice on a entry class DSRL, but Nikon say in Investor Relations notes that they don't will produce entry class Z cameras.

I think the combo 24-200 with the 200-600 is a better choice. The other non S lens is the 24-50 and we have the DX lenses. For DX you have a good 50-250, no need for a 70-300.

If the 100-400 is a f/5.6 lens it will be not so cheap, but for many a better choice than a 70-300.
