I really dont see the need for high speed Z lenses.  The difference between the fastest useful lens is between f4 and f1.8  This is a squeak over two stops.
These Z cameras perform significantly better at 1600 ISO than similar earlier cameras so the only advantage is the shallower DOF obtained. I seldom use my lenses wide open these days so it all seems a bit of a waste getting a 24-70 f2.8 rather than the 24-70 f4 especially as I can use the FTZ adapter and use my fast F series AFS lenses.
I think that Nikon has forgotten that people arent so easily taken in by marketing bull!

Still learning after all these years!
