My Thoughts...

1)  The 50-250Z is a very sharp lens with good color and contrast, in addition to being small and light.  Already shot a couple editorials with it and loved the results.

2)  While I have the FTZ adapter and it works well, I would prefer a native Z mount lens over an adapted lens for regular use as the Z mount lenses will focus faster.

3)  For a DX body, I like having the lens start at 50 on the low end instead of 70, it means less lens swapping for me.  Sometimes I can do an entire shoot with just the 50-250.
