wjan: I do not think these lenses make a lot of sense on APS-C.

The 28/2.8 is just 1.5 stop apart from the excellent 16-50mm kit (on same focal distance), which is not significant enough, considering the kit lens is more universal and also stabilised. If this 28mm were f/2, it would be much more appealing for use on DX.
And the 40mm f/2 becomes an awkward 60/2.8 (eq.) which is neither wide enough to be a nifty-fifty, nor long enough to become a valid portrait option.

I think newly announced revisions of Viltrox f/1.4 lenses for Z mount will be much more useful on Z50.

Fully agree with you, I was hoping Nikon would be more innovative and make a 28 mm f2, f2.8 is not enough of an improvement over the 16-50 mm stabilized kit lens. The 40 mm on the other hand is just a very awkward focal length on APS-C and I personally have no interest in that.

Luckily, Viltrox is bringing their f1.4 APS-C primes to Z mount...
