i doubt we will ever see a f2 zoom from Nikon.

Why not?

An f2 zoom is not a Nikon Z development first priority looking at the Nikon road map - whereas new optically designed 400mm and 600mm primes (unlike can changing the EOS mount to R) are on the Nikon road map.

Because Nikon isnt innovative. Look at Sigma, they made the world first f1.8 zooms, for APS-C. Look at Canon, they made the worlds first f2 FF zoom.

If you're going to criticise, you may as well get your facts right.  The Sigma 24-35mm f/2 DG HSM Art - a full-frame zoom - has been around for 6 years now.

What is Nikon offering ? The 100th version of a 24-70 f2.8, or 70-200 f2.8. Thats boring. Make something new, innovative, something that no one has made before.

There's a reason those lenses are always offered - they sell reliably well, and are usually a good compromise between size, performance and price
