Nikonrumors reports new members of the Z-Nikkor roadmap

https://nikonrumors.com/2022/09/20/here-is-the-updated-nikon-z-lens-roadmap-as-of-september-20th.aspx/

A Nikkor Z 12-28mm PZ lens (whatever that means)
Nikkor Z 35mm S Line ( also think that it will be f/1,2 )
Nikkor Z 135mm S Line (whatever speed)

And
Nikkor Z 70-180mm (doubt that it will be f/2.8 as speculated, guess 3,5 or 4)
This focal length is so specific (as it is 58 mm) that my guess is, we will see a new (and hopefully improved) Zoom-Micro Nikkor for the Z-system

Sorry. The 70-180 will almost certainly be the Tamron 70-180mm f/2.8 zoom and will complete the set of cheaper Nikon-badged f/2.8 zooms.

The 12-28 will be a DX power zoom which would seemingly be targeted for youtubers doing video while including themselves and an environment.

The 70-180 mm will likely complement the lower-cost f/2.8 zoom lineup.
