Re: z50 Lenses - third party options

Hi all!

Looking to get an astrophotography/portrait lens for my Z50- either used or new.

I'm looking at the following:

-Nikkor 14mm f/2.8 D
-Nikkor 20mm f/1.8G
-Nikkor 35mm f/1.8G

Out of those 3 lenses listed, which would be better worth the money? If you have other suggestions other than those, please advise. I'm open to zoom and prime lenses.

Thank you!!

Taken with kit lens, 16-50mm, edited a bit in lightroom.

There some third party options (manual focus) with Z-mount. I have no idea about the image quality, but some prices are very low.

Meike also makes some inexpensive options for Nikon Z::

However, check reviews for image quality.
