How would people react to Nikon releasing a couple of f2 zoom lenses in the 24-50 and 50-105 range? Would you be interested in such lenses?

.A 24-50 f/1.8 to replace some primes can be interesting, but not for me.

Now that we have the Z mount, Nikon can be very creative and try something unconventional to match the demands of the modern pro.

More than 90% of the "modern pro" doesn't earn enough to live on. They need to do more than that. Work as a creative teacher on a school, give courses, have a shop or have a second job. So making money is important.

If Nikon do the same as Canon and bring a 24-70 f/2 am I going to calculate.

Sell my 24-70 f/2.8 and buy this f/2. I think this will cost me approx €2000. For that money I can buy the 50 f/1.2 or both MC lenses, or 2 maybe 3 f/1.8 primes. But also to do other things.

The same for a 50-105 f/2. That lens replace nothing for me. So it is this lens or a 85 f/1.2 and keep some money in my pocket. My choice is the 85 f/1.2

Those 2  f/2 lenses will sell quite well, but to the modern amateur with a lot of money.
