Thom on Mid-Range Zooms

Not much new to say. Because they all can do the job.

Worth noting that with 45mpx sensors, cropping to 20mpx in post,

24-50 -> 24-75
24-70 -> 24-105
28-78 -> 28-117
24-12 -> 24-180
24-200 -> 24-300

The 24-50 is not only light and small on the Z5, it is arguably better on the Z7II because of cropping, when you want to go small and the IQ suffices.

Personally, I now find little use for the f4 models and rely on the 24-200 and 24-70/2.8 for  street and landscape.

When going light, the Z50 and 16-50 seems to be what I use, during daylight.   Indoors/night uses 40/2.

When hiking, Z50 combo threads onto a trekking pole.
