My personal boycott
19

Leaving for a long photo walk that would end after sundown, I looked at my options for a small prime to put in my pocket to replace the 24-70 after dark.

  • 50/1.8 S - too big.
  • FTZ + Voigtlander 40/2 or + 50/1.8D. - no autofocus
  • FTZ + 50/1.8G - too big

So I shoved the 50 S into my coat pocket, and grumbled.

And made a small resolution:

As long as there is no small prime for the Z series, from anybody, I will buy no more Nikon lenses.    Since the D3s, I have spent the cost of a nice BMW on Nikon gear, including all 3 S series lenses.  And I appreciate that other photographers have other needs.   I'm delighted that Nikon plans to meet those needs.

But Nikon has created the perfect milc to take a small prime.   So I will take a small stand, and continue to rely on the approximately 18 lenses I currently have, until Nikon or another lens maker, takes notice of the needs of the high end walk around photographer.
