Which Z camera do you have?

If you have a Z7 or a Z50, I'd look at the 7artisans Photoelectric 60mm f/2.8 Macro Lens for Nikon Z mount. It's only $159.00 - it is a DX lens, so you can shoot in DX mode on a Z7 and still get 20MP, but I would not suggest it on a Z6 as it would deliver only about 10MP in DX mode.

It's a manual focus lens, but no adapter is required and it is very well made.

Thanks Steve.  I did see the 7artisans lens, but dismissed it because I have a z6.  I did think it might be useful if I had a z7.  When shooting full frame, what does the image look like - I’m just curious to know.  
I’m excited for some of the wide angle prime lenses that 7artisans has in the pipeline.  9mm rectilinear on a full frame camera is bonkers.
