Linerider: Yawn!
I thought that Nikons new huge mount and shorter flange was supposed to reduce the lens size, increase the quality and create more innovating lens options?
Yet this lens is the same size as the older F mount.
And again we see no imagination from Nikon, still producing the same old focal range while Panasonic breaks new ground with the S 20-60mm F3.5-5.6
I'm personally glad to be done with Nikon

@Rajeshb thanks for sharing that pearl of wisdom.
Now crawl back under your rock

@TheRealYeats, we are still yet to see if the lens has improved image quality over the previous F mount.
As for more features, the new Z mount has no image stabilization, where as the older F mount had VR.
Nikon clearly haven't included one of the most potentially useful features on this lens

Richard Kwon: Nikon is back to stay!

Yeah, back is the word... back to 1996.
This is the most unimaginative lens and just goes to reinforce the lack of effort coming from the lame duck company

That way we could all appreciate her bravery as well as her immeasurable contribution to... whatever.

Tripe is traditional cuisine of Asia, Africa and Europe, so your comment is kinda racist and triggering

Absolutely!
But surely you can do better than using throw away clichés?

"Nah, not really. Ignorance is merely a type of unacknowledged pain."
We all have "unacknowledged pain."
Was this your attempt at playing a pseudo-intellectual?

Yawn!!
While Olympus and Panasonic are making innovating lenses like the Zuiko 8-25mm and S 20-60mm, Nikon brings out this lame and outdated rubbish.
How about at the very least making a wide angle for the aps-c?

Vignes: Apple has done great stuff by maintaining the same cable/connectors for a very long time. the android phone makers that keep changing cables/connector every time a new USB format comes hence all those old USB cable/connectors formats are dumped or thrown to rubbish. apple users keep their cables even when they trade-in their iPhone for a new one.
Shouldn’t EU regs ask android phone makers to follow apple’s excellent example.
Maybe EU regs should also advice apple not to include the cables at all since it's so common due to longer format lifecycle.

Yeah great idea, lets just ignore the global standard and cater to the whims of a giant, greedy corporation that uses child labour

EwanMC: This is how many Megapixels a camera should have to match the human eye…

You ever wondered how many megapixels a camera should have to match the resolution of the human eye? Well the answer is really incredibly complex. At the end we can only make an approximation and 576 Megapixel should be enough for the eye to get fooled by the image as it would be “real”.

Here is the video that explains why you would need that resolution:

Yep, if you can accept the annoying blind spot, converting the image from being upside down and that only a tiny amount is actually in focus it should be awesome.

What a great idea!!!
Lets increase our prices during a global pandemic!
Now we have even more reasons NOT to buy these already outrageously priced lens.

Linerider: How about everyone buy an Andriod phone?
Problem solved.
Youre welcome

@Malling, you're obviously not tech savvy are you.
Andriod is far from perfect, but it gives you countless options including making changes to the actual source code, which apple users could never dream of.
Apple products are mainly for wannabe posers and the inept users who don't want go out of their comfort zone. Enjoy
