The disadvantage with these new expensive lenses is...too much money involved.
The advantages there are many of.

Yes, the suggested retail price is quite high and spoils the fun  :o When the 14-24mm f/2.8 came for F-Mount it was affordable as I recall,,,
I'll be keeping the F-Mount version and even use it on Z7 with the added bonus of having rainbows included in most sunny images  ::)

MTFs etc

It is indeed impressive Nikon's engineers have kept the weight to 650g. It will be packaged with 2 lens hoods listed; HB97 takes 112 mm filters, and this zoom can also use rear gel filters.

MTF at 14mm is amazingly good, basically a flat line across the top. MTF at 24mm shows some drop-off towards the outer part of the image, but otherwise equally impressive. Looks like an excellent addition to the Z lineup. Not sure who will use 112mm filters with this lens, unless it is protection from salt spray etc.

If the distortion aspect isn't bad, this lens is going to be absolute gold.  Z mount really flexing it's potential with this one!  Color me impressed so far.

Along with the more humble 14-30/4.0, Nikon's new super-wideangle zooms are literally epoch-making: both allow to use front filters without bizarre adapters.
