I'm thinking of picking up a Z50 as a secondary body to the D500. Use will be for traveling, and stationary bird photography with the 200-500mm. I currently own the Nikon AF-P 10-20mm, AF-P 18-55mm and the AF-S 18-140mm.

My thought is to purchase the Z50 with the FTZ adapter and the 16-50mm lens and skip the 50-250mm. I might instead purchase an AF-P 70-300mm down the road instead and use it with the FTZ adapter.

Thoughts anyone?

I did get the 2 lens kit the day it was released + the FTZ adapter which was reduced to $99....I have not used the FTZ after doing some test with the 200-500 and the Tamron 150-600 G2 and G1.....I have decided to make this my Travel and Disneyland kit which I can pocket with the 16-50 and the 50-250 on the other pocket...

see my notes on early results - https://www.dpreview.com/forums/post/63307341

I have been using these for casual events and more....Here are some images from Yosemite....

here are some from my other DSLR  to give you a comparison...

Here are some images from the 50-250 + Z50

I will most likely stick with my DSLRs for sports wildlife and BIFs ….Mirrorless is not ideal for me for those genres...
