The tale of the Nikkor f6.3 Zooms (Z DX 16-50 & Z DX 50-250).

Doing a discussion yesterday, about how fast the new Nikkor Z f6.3 zoom lenses goes to the dreaded 6.3 f-stop, I made this:

As you can see, they both first hit the f 6.3 mark at the extreme end of their focus length.
The 16-50mm at 50mm and the 50-250mm at 250mm.

The 16-50mm is a 16mm f3.5 - 43mm f5.6 in disguise (24mm - 65mm).
The 50-250mm is a 50mm f4.5 - 200mm f5.6 in disguise (75mm - 300mm).

I don't have the new Z 24-200mm f4-6.3 (and prob. never will) but if anyone would make the numbers, I'll love to update the graf.

Thank you for the plot. I like plots.
