A lot of Nikkors use exotic glass, particularly low-dispersion elements, so according to Slack’s definition, most Nikkor Z lenses are APOs.

Frankly, this sounds like just a marketing buzzword/acronym. Kind of like Nikon marking certain Z mount lenses as “S.”

Nikon’s “S” line Z-mount lenses are very well corrected, particularly when their software corrections are applied.
