I have read somewhere on the forum about this lens on Z50, but can’t find it. The Sigma 17-50mm could be an addition to the 16-50mm kitlens especially in wintertime in Norway. There is not much daylight up here in the north. Has anyone on the forum used this lens on the Z50? What l would like to know is how it performs on the Z50. I hope the autofocus will worh properly via the ftz adapter.

Yes, it works fine with the FTZ.  I didn't notice any difference compared to using it on a D5600.  It's a sharp lens - the 50mm end in particular.  And the price is very good.  I ended up using the Nikon 16-80 f/2.8-4 instead for the greater zoom range, but the Sigma was about the same in terms of optical quality.
