I've noticed something that's really annoying at least to me, although I don't know if others share this. I have a selection of current-ish f/2.8 zooms, including a 14-24mm f/2.8, 24-70mm f/2.8G, and 70-200 f/2.8 VRI I also am unapologetic about using some mid-range zooms like the 24-120mm f/4 VR. Not too long ago, I was looking at the 70-300mm AF-P. Even though the lower end lenses are(of course) slower and often not as good optically, there are times where I value their weight and greater zoom range over lugging a set of f/2.8 zooms. Something I've noticed, though, in switching back and forth between the two is that for whatever reason Nikon decides to place the focus and zoom rings differently on these lenses. Specifically, the f/2.8s tend to have the zoom ring closer to you and the focus ring at the end of the barrel, while the less expensive lenses reverse this(and usually use a small, thin focus ring). I definitely prefer the closer-to-body zoom ring placement, as I rarely touch the MF ring while I'm constantly on the zoom ring, and the heavy f/2.8 zooms seem to balance nicely with my left hand cupping the zoom ring. More practically, though, when switching back and forth between the two lens "classes" there's always an adjustment period where my hand wants to grab the focus ring rather than the zoom ring. Is there any particular reason why Nikon chooses this different placement?
