I've got an NZ flight LAX-SYD in late July and I was hoping that NZ had moved to TBIT by then so that I could sample the new lounge. The only thing I can find in searches is "mid-year". Has anybody found a more concrete date for this?

Late October possibly?

Prompted by this change in MCT on the 25th for connections from Air NZ to Air Canada who both currently employ T2:

Nothing specifically advertised by AirNZ.

However, the MCT for transits AC to NZ goes from 90 minutes to 120 minutes after October 25th.

Both Airlines are currently using T2. One may assume the additional 30 minutes may well represent when AirNZ plan to move to TBIT.
