"New Nikkor Z 400mm f/2.8 mirrorless lens is also rumored for the Olympics"
Protogs that currently use (and need) a camera like the 1Dx/D6 likely wouldn't consider switching without native lenses of that kind. There is hardly anything to gain by switching to a ML body and then having to use the "same old" lenses with an adapter.
On the other hand, by developing high end lenses, Nikon has to get the Z9 right. IOW: there is hope, the camera will perform on the same high level as the D6.
Yes, that Olympics line is key ....... and getting it right doesn't mean a stream of FWs fixing silly bugs and issues six months after the fact .....
....... it's got to be right out of the box!
If NR's images of the Z9 are the real thing ..... it's a very handsome beast!!
