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...

Well if the two or three of you are happy switching systems or adding a Z to your DSLR that’s fine with me but my D850 does everything I need it to do and it’s capable of shooting moving subjects unlike the Z system, as long as your happy that’s all that matters

Let's face it, the D850 is about the apex of what could be expected from a full-frame Digital SLR - there is not much photography-wise that it is not excellent for.

In a similar way, there was not much scope for advancement from my Dynax 7 analogue film camera - I still use it and it is as good today as when it was made around 20 years ago. However, I do shoot other stuff as well (medium format, digital SLR and mirrorless) - it is all great kit.
