Re: Z series from a design point of view

I really like the small changes they are making to the design of the Z lenses starting with the Micros:

  1. They changed to a new, larger S logo for S-graded lenses. The original logo was too small and didn't distinguish the S lenses from the others as much.
  2. The control ring is no longer on the smaller, tapered part at the bottom of the barrel. It's now at the bottom of the the larger part and makes the proportion of the lens look much better. The control ring also has different knurling. 
  3. They added a Nikkor logo to the top of nameplate at the base of the lens. I always hated the font they used for the "24-70/2.8 S" name of the lens because it looked pre-production to me. The addition of the Nikkor logo at the top improves the look here.
