Curious to see (in poll form) everyone's wishlist if Tamron were to port over to Z mount. I'd probably preorder the 20-40mm, assuming optics are stellar, as it covers my favorite FLs for casual shooting, 28 + 40, in a small package with added flexibility.

Limited to five options so I included the "sexy new" lenses, but please add whatever else in the thread.

35-150 interests me the most. Not convinced I “would” buy it, but it’s the most unique for my uses.

70-180/2.8. Already adapting an E mount copy via the ETZ21. Will be glad when it is in Z mount (and $200 off new ).
The 20-40 is fairly interesting but I am not going to outlay for it any time soon since I already like my 24-120S

I too would be most interested in the 70-180 f/2.8, but I am not sure I would buy it. I would be more likely to buy it if it took a 1.4X TC, but it does not. That means I would probably go with the Nikon 70-200 f/2.8S.

Those are two completely different lenses.
The 70-180 is a lightweight and compact telephoto zoom (81x141 mm, 815 g: E-mount).
The Z 70-200/2.8 is a beast, 89x220 mm weighing 1440 g (1360 g without tripod collar, i.e., 67% more than 70-180).
I'm not even sure the 70-180 is a "true" f/2.8 lens (and what about T??), being just 67 mm the filter thread (the same as my 70-200/4 VR). The Micro-Nikkor 70-180/4.5-5.6 I had long time ago had a 62 mm filter thread ... at 180 mm (at infinity) and f/5.6 ...
Are you comparing apples to oranges?

35-150 for me, I finally tried that lens in F mount and love the focal length for family. 35mm is wide enough for closer shots and 150mm is awesome for getting tight, it's a lot of flexibility in one package. Honestly I would probably prefer if they made a f/2.8-f/4 version in Z mount as opposed to the larger f/2-2.8 but a great and useful bit of kit regardless.

I would like to see more compact Tamron 35mm f1.4SP for Z mount...
I have that lens for F mount, and it's amazing...but little bit heavy.

Also 35-150mm f2-f2.8

That 45VC was exceptional cheap fun on F mount. I don't have any experience with the Tamron compact primes for E-mount, but I'd give them a shot too see if they are more interesting than the native Z compact primes

Well they are very different in size obviously, but not very different in focal length range and aperture. The key thing for the comparison for my use is can they serve the same purposes and that tells me for my use whether it is an apples to apples vs. apples to oranges comparison. I would us such a lens some of the time for portraits and for portraits I would us the 100-180 range most of the time. I would appreciate the smaller size of the Tamron, but I would also appreciate for VR of the Nikon for such shots. If this was my only use I would probably get the Tamron. It isn't my only use, however, as I would use the lens for shooting field sports sometimes too and it would probably get more use there. For field sports the 105-280 range at f/4 with my 1.4X TC would be the most useful for the way I shoot and you can't get anything like that with the Tamron. This whole other and more common for me use of such a lens justifies the larger size. Of course for other people who have other uses they might look at the comparison very differently.

50-400mm for me. Would be a useful zoo and water fowl lens.

‘None’ should be an option in the poll. I think it’s very hard to beat the existing lineup of native zooms, but Tamron does offer some alternative ranges that might fit the needs of shooters working with a single lens. But the overall render and excellent corner perform of certain S-line lenses like the 14-24/2.8, 24-120/4, and 100-400/ are one of the primary reasons why I shoot Nikon Z. And there are already a range of zooms catering to varying budgets and weight considerations and speeds.

I might consider a Tamron super-telephoto prime (eg 500/4) if Nikon doesn’t make one I can afford, they work with Nikon TC, and if af performance is close to native, and center-frame IQ wide open is excellent. But this is another area where Nikon is producing stellar designs. The 400/2.8 TC, 800/6.3 PF are stunning and one is actually a ‘bargain’ in its class.

I expect the 600/4 is going to be Nikon’s best super telephoto ever. I was disappointed to see the 200-600 is not going to be S-Line. Does Tamron make a zoom like that?

50-400 is nice, but honestly even the normal 100-400 for a cheaper option without the FTZ would be nice.

I'd be very interested in the 20-40mm + 70-180mm. Would be a nice pair of lenses for travel and only about 1.2kg.

And whoever makes a relatively compact high quality 35mm f1.4 for Z mount will get a good chunk of my money, so +1 on a mirrorless version of the 35mm f1.4 SP

Tamron makes some great lenses and they tend to be a lot less expensive than nikon equivalents. That's as big a reason as any to consider them, if and when they ever are able to utilize the Z or RF mounts legally.
