Perhaps it does as Nikon's own specs for a Z-mount lens means an improvement like we see. Nikon does have a tendency to improve with each new redesign after all

I used the word "specs": advisedly.

Let me spell it out: The fact that a Z-mount lens is better than its F-mount equivalent does not mean that the mechanical Z-mount specifications (throat diameter, FFD, etc) made the difference.

Jim – you’re invoking your usual technical miasma. The output (not some meaningless test) of all the Z-S lenses I own, are spectacularly better than the F lenses they’re replacing. Nikon says the mount plays an important part in that result. I’ll go with Nikon explanation not some highly improbable technical concern of yours.

Stay safe - Dan
