Re: Thoughts on the 50-250 DX lens

Went through this process recently with a Z6 body, when I was looking for a DX body for my AF-D macro lens.

Ended up with used 70-300 AF-P FX VR and d7200 (again).

The original owner never used the combo and they were practically new - (< 5k actuation) but the price wasn't.

I had contemplated 50-250 z at the expense of 10mp on the Z6 but now I am thrilled.

They all share the same battery (V1, d7200, Z6) and I now have a back up body (d7200) that is not only reasonably competent for most general use, it can accommodate AF-D along with AF-P. (AI or AF-S too, but don't have any)

And the 70-300 AF-P FX VR is quite good on both the d7200 and the Z6, so I can have the telephoto on the d7200, while having 24-70/4z, or 28z on the Z6, all in my little backpack, ready to go.

Pictured: d7200, Z6, 14-30/4z, 24-70/4z, 28z, 70-300 AF-P FX VR, SB-400, FTZ
