If anybody uses a Z50 besides a Z5 i’d be happy to get my question answered … Last week i was testing the Z50 with the kit lens (16-50mm) and took some photos of landscapes i often visit when testing gear. I have to say: The Z50 performed extremely surprising – even with the kit lens (sunshine, blue sky).
The Z50 rendered finest details, even distant leaves and vegetation was clearly recognizable. All the Canon gear i tested in this particular spot (a vineyard landscape) was easily surpassed by the quality of detail the Z50 delivered. Even the Fuji XTs (XT30, XT3) were beaten. The only downside: The Z50 is really very small and the handling of the lens sometimes was a bit „hard work“. While returning the Z50 after my free of charge test i could touch the Z5 body on site in the store and fell in love at once. Just the perfect weight and dimension. Now my question: Will the Z5 reveal this level of detail in the pictures the Z50 did – also with the Z5 kit lens (24-50mm) under the same circumstances?
Thank you!

Simple answer: Yes, the Z5 should surpass the Z50.

Certainly with lenses of comparable quality. It seems the apsc kit lens is much better than competitor’s, from many user reviews. Is the FF kit in Z5 also excellent? Both Z5 and Z50 have been good surprises from Nikon, they shoukd be selling faster, Nikon needs a more aggressive marketing model.

The Z50 will (as all Nikon DX do) suffer from a lack of dedicated lenses. If you are happy with what exists and planned, then fine

I think the Z5 has a hiccup due to reported low light focussing issues, otherwise it would be a no brainer personally as an entry point into the Z lenses
