The Nikon Z 50mm F1.8 S is a powerful standard lens for the Z system, offering outstanding sharpness and full-aperture performance. There are better 50mm lenses on the market for portraiture, but none that are sharper or so well-corrected for coma and longitudinal chromatic aberration when shot wide open.
Good for: Low light photography, where edge-to-edge sharpness at wide apertures is hugely beneficial.
Not so good for: Portraiture, where the slightly harsh bokeh can be distracting in some situations.
