  • Why didn't they develop external zoom like Canon RF version?
    They have tried their best to design smaller cameras and then now make bigger lenses.

  • Me too. I'm having Z6 and all 4 native Z lenses so I want to add Z50 into my set. Z50 kit plus Z 35mm 1.8S in my bag would be great for travel. Nikon needs to make a small 23mm f2 APS-C (like Fuji...

  • Thanks! Looking at the comparative samples, I concluded for myself that 50mm 1.8S is "Noct" for a poor guy like me :-). I'm happy with it. But 58 Noct is an excellent lens for someone having $8000 ...
  • Replied in does....
    I would not agree with you. Can't say these damages caused by impact. A scratch is a normal wear and tear. For picture #2, I would say it's a manufacture defect. back to OP: If you cannot win this ...
  • Replied in Update
    Thank for your explanation! But I'm wondering why VR of new DX Z lenses are important on Z6/7 since these two bodies have IBIS? It would be more helpful if there is some kind of electronic VR when ...
  • Replied in All of them
    All Z primes that I'm having are keepers (35S, 50S and 85S 1.8).
  • Replied in Update
    I'm not sure if I understand your last two paragraphs ;-), but I know at this time Z50 does not have IBIS and two new Z DX lenses have VR.
  • I had both, Z6 and XT30. I sold XT30 right away after Nikon announced Z50 camera last month. Compared with XT30, Z6 is clearly in different level. I'm much more happier with IQ (of both JPEG and ...
  • I would rather have no LCD on the back and pay less $ than having this stupid design. Fuji, why didn't you let users hide/unhide the LCD by themselves (through a Fn button), without having to flip...

  • So they can make it's small (just like M6 mkII's lens). In my book, size and large aperture can't go together. Probably you don't know they have fast lenses like 35, 50, 85mm 1.8S..or FTZ adaptor. ...
  • I think you're just troller, or bias. Probably you don't have any Z cameras/lenses. Both new Z DX lenses have VR. And even expensive, recently released XT3 does not have IBIS. Fuji's living mainly ...
  • Thanks OP for the helpful report! I really want to add Z50 kit to my Z6 system after I sold my Fuji XT30. (But I think I wait until Nikon has special deal for kit). This Z50 kit and 35 1.8S (for ...
  • If you have Z6/7, then Z 85mm 1.8S is the best choice for now, period. I don't see anything to complain about it.( also 50mm 1.8S) Nikon changed the definition of 1.8 lenses by introducing 1.8S ...
  • Boring colors

  • I sold my XT30 kit immediately after I saw this Nikon Z50 released. Not only for better ergonomic, handling and controlling, I can also use it with my 4 excellent native Z full frame lenses. So it ...
  • Am I the only one who likes CMOS, "old" generation sensors (like in this X-A7) better than new X-trans ones found in XT3, XT30?..

  • I having my 35, 50, 85 for f1.8 and smaller sizes. I find myself having more funs with these primes. But it depends on your purposes.
  • Good enough until you need f1.8 or you're tired because of its weight and size :-). I think 2.8 is not fast enough for me in low light situations. For travel, I only bring with me Z 24-70 f4 zoom. ...
