Yep. NR is saying that Nikon is holding out after April 1st because of a new quarter? Idk. The Z6 III is way overdue.

Not all camera users are psycho about lenses and technical excellence. A lot of people are under budgetary restraints and cannot afford a few Grand for lenses. Nikon is not in business to serve only deep pockets, but a diverse marketplace. Plenty of soccer Moms and Dads out there. My Tamron 100-400 weighs more than 1300 grams. I am sure Nikon will beat that.

It will be interesting to see how this plays out. It could be a very effective travel lens if the optics are ok.

And a great picture doesn't necessarily come from the most expensive lens always. These days even a mobile phone produce winning pictures. Portability is important

Haven’t seen any detailed sharpness looks but PetaPixel’s review is quite positive.

A lens only a soccer mom could love.

Literally, all the casual mom shooters I know would eat this up as their first big “upgrade” lens.

Pretty much. 725 grams for the 28-400 vs 570 grams for the 24-200. One thing I didn’t like was that by 200mm, it’s at f/8

People "wanted" 28 - 300 mm. Nikon delivered 28 - 400mm. What more to ask for

This lens would be huge. The 28-400 is even smaller than the FX 28-300 and that lens was variable aperture as well. I guess if Canon was able to get away with their RF 100-400 Nikon can survive this and sell a few of these as well. I was at Adorama a few weeks ago and saw some woman buy both the non L 24-105 along with that 100-400.

I hope at 400 f8, it won't require stepping down to get better sharpness.
While I don't need it I suppose if I have a hiking trip where I need to carry
everything myself, I could see this as an excellent kit and couple with 14-30/4,
that's under 1.2kg total for all the lenses I need. If it performs anywhere
near 24-200, it could be interesting.

The Canon 100-400mm is a surprisingly good lens, especially given the price. It's also very, very nicely built for an inexpensive consumer zoom. I had one to complement my higher end glass, as it was a great way to get a lot of reach in a very lightweight and compact package. Optically, I thought it was way better than it had any right to be, with good sharpness throughout the zoom range, decent bokeh and relatively low aberrations. If this Nikon is able to perform relatively close to the Canon RF, while massively expanding the zoom range at the wide end, it'll be one heck of a nice lens as an all-in-one.

Based on what I saw in the Adorama vid it doesn't seem like a bad lens at all. If I wasn't an effing bokeh junky I'd probably get one.

One lens and one body, you could travel the world with a ZF, 28-400... Ok, maybe I'd throw in a 40mm f2 SE for the street.
For anyone who goes on cruises, organized "explore trips," or has kids, this is an affordable way to have it all in a relatively small package. In addition, this lens meets the needs of the backpacker or mountain climber who wants to take something that does not take up space and weight.

Smart and bold move by Nikon.
