Second Z macro officially 50mm

Hi All,

according to a new roadmap (https://nikonrumors.com/2020/08/03/nikon-usa-updates-z-mount-mirrorless-lens-roadmap-with-correct-nikkor-z-50mm-micro-lens.aspx/), the second macro for the Z mount will be 50mm instead of 60mm.

I'm not much of a macro shooter, but I'm wondering if all those comments about working distance and usefulness don't miss the point of this lens?

Canon has the 35mm f1.8 macro for RF. Maybe Nikon is trying to do something similar. A 50mm f2 or f2.5 'nifty fifty' with close up capabilities, small size (the silhouette on Nikon's lens overview puts it between the pancake primes and the 50mm f1.8), light weight, good IQ and a price below the S model. For me it would be an interesting everyday, walk around jack-of-all-trades lens.

What do you think?

Best,

Mike
