The rumor mill believes so, because the fast 50mm prime is f/1.2, too.

There's barely any difference in size between mirrorless and DSLR super tele lenses anyway.
I assume the two big guns will be announced alongside the Z9.
Nikon could probably just put on a different mount, like Canon did. But I assume they might use the opportunity for a redesign to catch up in the weight department. The latest Canon 400/2.8 (EF or RF) is hand-holdable if required, for example. That's almost impossible with the AF-S 400/2.8 FL VR.
