Yes, strongly agree.  Ditto re the D850, D750 etc.

Even pretty basic Olympus OMD M43 ameras offer this facility.

In particular when the current Z cameras lack the handy voice recording provided by high-end single-digit Dx models.

I'm curious if Nikon will announce the 85 S to be faster than 1.2.  Wouldn't surprise me in the slightest and it would be a wise move.  Canon shooters have long touted their access to a faster 85 than Nikon shooters, so given Z's advantage in faster apertures, even an 85/1.1 would be a good strategic move.  Along with a competitively priced and stellar performing 85/1.8, a high end 85/<1.2 would shift Canon to the 'if-you-want-average' department in this area.  Would be an absolute marketing win, and the lens people at Nikon are certainly aggressive and confident enough to do it.

Getting native Z Micro-Nikkors would be a real boost to make Z the future preferred approach .... Certanly Nikon can do [much] better than the latest AFS 105 Micro?

Nikon hasn't ever updated the 200 AF and the 70-180 AF Micro Nikkors, the whole Nikon 1 System failed also because it never got any native close-up capability, so Nikon is definitely not focussing on the needs of Close-up nerds. Canons 65 mm solution for going beyond 1:1 remained without a competitor for years now - and Nikon never produced a stellar 100/105/125 mm Micro Nikkor with outstanding Bokeh although they certainly can do it if they want to. I am not sure whether the roadmap (including the usual 60 mm and 105 mm focal lengths will change that.

To be honest I would be surprised although I agree it to be a wise strategic move. It also would have been wise to make a Z-Noct without AF f/,07
