Re: 24-70/2.8 Nikkor S vs 50/1.8 Nikkor S

Good comparison. I went for the 24-70 2.8S with my Z6 in lieu of the 24-70 F4 S since I shoot events (mostly weddings) and knew that I'd need that 2.8 over the 4. Plus, I had seen some other YT reviews that showed the 2.8S vs F mount 2.8's and it was no comparison.

I figured that the difference between the 24, 35 and 50 1.8 Z primes would be minimal (if any) over the 2.8S zoom based on everything I had read at the time (summer 2019). Indeed, the 24-70 2.8S is like having those 3 primes with you in a single lens.

Will be interesting to see what (and how much) the 1.2 series of primes offer in the coming years.
