Nikon's best superzoom lens EVER? Let's discuss the Nikkor Z 28-400mm f/3.5-6.3 rumors

Update: 22/03/2024: A report via  Nikon Rumors has suggested that this lens could be announced by Nikon next week;  Wednesday, March 26 - undermining previous rumors that the lens would arrive in the later half of 2024. This new superzoom is not expected to be part of the Nikon S-line lenses, and the aperture range could be a half-stop faster or slower on both ends.

If this lens is announced next week I can see it ending up in many baskets for beginners and camera enthusiasts alike, especially if it does ship with the f/3.5-6.3 aperture range.
