50mm f/1.8 Z-mount S vs F-mount AF-S
1

Since the 50mm f/1.8S is on sale right now, I have decided to purchase it. This would be the first native Z mount lens for my Z6. I have been using the F-mount AF-S 50mm f/1.8G lens with the Z6, so I am very curious to see if the native lens offer substantial advantages.

Since 50mm remains on my Z6 90% of the time and almost all of my videos and most of my stills are at 50mm, should I expect substantial benefits using the native lens? The F-mount lens was not the sharpest and its autofocus was loud to ruin audio during video. But it was small and light, so remains on my Z6.

Anyone with both 50mm f/1.8 AF-S and S mount lenses, please provide your insights./feedback.
