kobakokh: based on the optical quality of other Z lenses this will be also superb, but to be honest I always thinking who is the designer of this Z line, because of they looks very ugly... Old Nikon design was created by greatest Italian designer, now maybe the designer is some accountants of Nikon.

Pradviking. Exactly my point. Now you suggest that not all things are tools. You may see a camera as only a tool but not everyone does. Other people may see a car as nothing more.
Thank you for agreeing with me

Everything is basically a tool. A car to shift our butts. A house to cook, sleep and other things. If nobody cared about aesthetics then the Ferrari wouldn't exist and we would likely live in a concrete box.

We all look through different lenses. What you like doesn't mean mean i have to like. I much prefer all the dials and rings gone. The Fuji's are the ugliest thing i have seen in a long time.
Same when i was building custom motorcycles. Get rid of all the junk like wiring and switches. 2 wheels, an engine and a fuel tank, don't want to see more than that.

I love the simple plain design. Probably why the baby Blad gives me gas
