Don Sata: Yeah, now go and try to find a decent compact prime lens for the Nikon.

I think you have lost the plot.

It is a full frame lens, can you fit the Fuji to a full frame camera? should be possible if there was a Fuji to Z adaptor, of course it would not fill the frame, the Sony adaptor is 2mm thick a Fuji adaptor would be 1.7mm thick, of course there would need to be enough demand to fit these lenses.
I have a interest in buying the Z28mm for it's small size , shorter than my manual Ai Nikon lenses. I have had a few primes for digital but sold them due to lack of use, this at the price point may tempt me to buy for my Z6.

Wow you cant be wrong with logic of that standard.

@ Don Sata the fuji is 61mm diameter, because the mount is smaller by around 10mm, it is shorter by 23mm, comparisons of filter size are hardly relevant. Could Nikon have made the 28mm 20mm shorter, would it have been beneficial optically? Perhaps DPR can test both the Fuji 27mm and Nikon 28mm and see which is the better performer

The 28mm is 71mm diameter because of the Z mount it cannot get any smaller in diameter, it is only 43mm long , how much smaller do people think a lens made only for DX can be whilst still performing optically.

Hugo808: Fuji, and no just because I'm a fan boy. It's the Fuji lens range that seals it. It'll be a long time before Nikon has anything like that range for the Z series, let alone the APSC versions.

I have no idea why Nikon didn't make this Full Frame.

FTZ lets you use a large number of modern F lenses, alongside the current range of Z lenses you can go from10mm to 800mm. Don't be afraid of full frame lenses on a crop body.

2nd Wind: Its the perfect beginners wildlife lens if you want beginners to give up photography, F11! Seriously, it's perhaps the last lens a beginner should get. For close to the same price you can get either Sigma or Tamron 150-600 used or new. Fixed focal length long reach lenses require some camera savvy and hardly a perfect lens for beginners.

@vadims You need to define bulky and heavy gear, a lot of people on DPR forums would consider this set up to be very bulky and heavy, but for others it is lightweight.

IamJF: As it's obvious for everybody - that's VERY steep for a wide f4 zoom. Which should be in the 1000,- area.

But it's significant wider - that's a big bonus for the people who needs it. And it's MSRP.

But for most of us who simply want a good F4 16-35 for a reasonable price - this lens is not an option.

Launch price for the Nikon was £1259 that's a £500 difference in launch prices, the Canon is overpriced.

PentUp: Looks like it has the ergonomics of a point and shoot. But I guess with small lenses it would bye really good in that role. With big lenses it looks like it would be very uncomfortable to use.

@PentUp Ergonomics of a point and shoot describes the majority of cameras on the market,

@Malling the Nikon is £948 at Wex in the UK, The Canon is listed at £1749.

Gilbert D: Canon RF 24-240 and Nikon Z 24-200 are missing in the charts. And Nikon Z 40mm is F2.0, not F2.8.

FF 24-50 is missing from the chart.

Puppy2007: There is free Capture One Express for Sony as well.

You can get free Capture one express for Nikon too and probably for other makes. there is also NX studio free for Nikon.

cyuill2007: This is supposed to be a comparison of “high-end” APS-C mirrorless cameras. The Nikon Z50 is Nikon’s “high-end” APS-C mirrorless camera because it is Nikon’s ONLY APS-C mirrorless camera. The other three are much more expensive, and really belong to a higher category relative to the Z50.

The Canon requires a additional cost EVF.

cosmicnode: There is a big shortage of products produced with various chips, My Video card in my computer failed yesterday a Nvidia 2060 I started looking for a replacement and almost every single option had "out of stock " alongside the description. I ended up ordering a 2gb card that I will have to use via a hdmi cable, cost around £50, a very basic card but all that is available. Until stocks of a suitable higher specification card become available this is what I will have to use. I am currently running a very old 256mb card that is not even able to display widescreen. There are many products that are currently unavailable due to the supply chain and covid problems not just photographic gear.

You did not read my post fully, I said that I am now currently using a very old card it displays in 4/3 all the images on the screen are stretched to widescreen, very distorted. I have ordered a £50 card which will have to do until stocks of higher spec cards are available, the card has not yet arrived.

Lessiter: Any comparison between the K-3III and the d500 should mention and show the size difference...
https://camerasize.com/compare/#873,648
The d500 is huge in comparison, even bigger than the FF Pentax K-1 despite lacking ibis.

The D500 is however a superbly comfortable camera to use .

In reply to:

Old Cameras: If you just have to try a mirror lens there are a multitude of 500mm, f8 lenses to be had for about $99. Buy one of those and get it out of your system. Frankly I like the donuts but there are right and wrong ways to use such a lens. The gallery exhibits both ways.

It would be interesting to see a comparison between this recent lens and the much older designs available for $99, Perhaps there are improvements in reflectivity of the mirrors, lens coatings, and the design of the elements that are fitted towards the rear of the lens.
