Re: If you could buy one used lens for Zf...?

I'm currently enjoying my Z f with Nikon's 28/1.4E via FTZ. A fine couple, though maybe a bit heavy and ergonomically "unperfect"

I am very excited about the Zf!

I have no Nikon gear.

Budget is a factor.

I'm thinking of purchasing Zf body only and pairing it with a used lens, or lenses, either z or f mount. Hoping to save a little bit of money from, or get a bit more value for, the $2600 camera + 24-70 combo.

I shoot a bit of everything: lots of nature, some street, some "portraits," and some live theatre and music gigs. I also dabble in video, for installation and short film, and will be using the camera for this on the near future, including a trip to the Brazilian Amazon end of December.

My first thought was to just pick up the 24-70f4 used, and save a little bit. But then I wondered if there might be more creative options out there. Thoughts and recs most welcome. Thank you in advance!
