New Z mount 100-400mm is superb so far
11

Its still early days but I have been really surprised.  I have been trying out my newly delivered Nikkor S 100-400mm with my Z7II and all I can say is its seems to be absolutely superb!!  The AF is quick and accurate, even with the 2X converter at full 800mm.  This has not been the case with all other long tele lenses I have used for my passion,  birding,  up to now.  It seems this will be a great lens for birders or other nature photographers when they need the some extra reach with the 1.4X or even 2X teleconverters - seems a level up on the older F-Mount lenses performance wise.  WELL DONE NIKON (so far).  However, I'm still disappointed with the quality of the plastics used in the lens caps and lens hoods of all the new z lenses, as well as the lack of decent lens cases for the heavier lenses.  Come on Nikon! cloth bags are not good enough especially at the price we are paying for these lenses.
