Sony did one as a mirrorless-only but had nothing to lose, with no DSLR base.

Nikon has a good 400/2.8 that with an adapter works with the mirrorless; if they build a Z version it cannot be used with the DSLR. And that's a pretty big commitment given how few they sell (compared to something like a 24-70 or 70-200).

Cannon will make that commitment I think because their volume is higher, especially in the sports world.

Will Nikon really make that big of a commitment to the mirrorless world, after their wimpy commitment so far, by doing a mirrorless-only 400/2.8.

Will sports photographers who want the Z9 really not buy it because of needing to use a F version (which they likely already have)?

PS. Frankly I'm surprised no one is doing long lenses with replaceable mounts, sort of an adapter but more built in. Kind of like they did for CF/XQD when they wouldn't make a commitment. Kind of like "Honey, will you Marry me, but do you mind if I keep dating your sister" type commitment to XQD.
