50mm: popularity vs use cases
2

There is no doubt that 50mm lenses are quite popular and there is a wide range of lenses. Nikon z has 3 such lenses right now which is quite a share.

Nevertheless, for me 50mm never really worked that well, except as a portrait lens. That's about the only use case I have for such a lens and arguably there are better portrait lenses like an 85mm, so it's not like the 50mm excels at portraits either.

But, Nikon released more lenses that cover 50mm than any other focal range. What are your use cases for 50mm Z lenses?
