Was there an actual mention of “twin” motors - I only saw “multiple” mentioned.

On Mikons international website, with plenty of other info about the lens. I alwaus go there before buying a new lens. I need to see at least the MTF.

I can live without compatibility with the S converters.

There must be a technical reason why Nikon didn’t allow Z TC’s to be used - I would be interested in finding out why. I’ve seldom (actually only 1 time) used a TC on various f-mount micros, but I dislike previously available “features” being deleted without explanation - maybe the beancounters weighed in to make a future MC 200mm more attractive? 🙄

The Z tele-converters are specifically designed for tele-lenses (the narrow part sticking in to the main lens, not suitable for wider lenses with the Z lens designs). The 105 Z has a wide lens element close to the back flange.
