So all the hype about mirrorless was for size and weight but so far all the mirrorless lenses are larger than their previous counterparts.

Not ALL of them.

The Z 24-70mm f/2.8 S is 18% shorter and nearly 25% lighter than the AF-S 24-70mm f/2.8E VR. The Z 14-24mm is smaller and lighter, too.

The 24-70 E grew a lot over the G version ,how’s the Z compare in size to the G ?

Z:
126mm in length
805g

G:
133mm in length
900g

Still 5% shorter and 11% lighter.

Not to mention - all that at better optical quality.

I cant see it , can you tell the difference ? Thought not.

I can see a clear benefit in resolution from the Z lens compared with the G lens, especially away from the centre.  I'm not the only one...
