Nikon says they're gonna come out with a sports Z though. But events and street, and my cats lol, are my thing. Yes just like every other kit lens produced. THAT will be the portrait Z lens. Doesn't this screen flip? But whether it clicks or not is a matter of personal preference. Nikon 50mm F1.8 The best portrait lens for Nikon Z50 is still Nikon â¦ The new Nikon Z 50 takes full advantage of Nikonâs larger Z mount, providing creators of all types with the most innovative optical system for superior image and video quality. That sucks, it feels like going back in time. They obviously know how to do IBIS and if the pricing on the Z6 indicates anything, it can be done without adding a significant amount of money to the cost. It does not seem especially unique or special, and has but two basic lenses. And like I've said, i have yet to see the 85S make cream. That's not the case with Canon's mirrorless. I mean there is a trial-and-error method (or I suppose if you wanted to put dots on the lens barrel yourself so you know, then that would work too) but most on here have claimed (and I can attest to this) it's hard. Now you can put an APS-C lens on a FF body and presto you have an APS-C camera with less resolution than the one you had before. And a very capable camera of just 400 grams with a great grip. Sony has a wider selection of lenses available, but that’s if you take into account its full-frame (FE) lenses. Earlier this week we published our samples from the new Sigma 65mm F2 DG DN when mounted on a Sony body. I bet if I asked you to shoot something at 35mm exactly with a PZ, you might have a difficult time nailing down 35mm or it may take you a 1-3 shots to get to 35mm exactly. 1 With capture of APS-C size or DX â¦ Besides, there are plenty of people who use high-end lenses on lower-level APS-C bodies. These lenses are â¦ - which makes sense from a business standpoint - but, then, why should I want one? 360 compatible DSLR lenses (with the optional Mount Adapter FTZ). Also no flipout screen. Nice of Nikon the to offer a 16mm to 50mm kit lens instead of the obligatory, re-cycled 18-XXmm. Unfortunate that all that Nikon pro lenses do not have lens-stabilization ;). I'd try to point out how you're objectively wrong but your posting history makes that unnecessary. If you are going to have fat lenses to carry in your travel bag, you might as well go FF. I see a lot of people (even pros) that will attach a larger heavy lens to their body and use a strap attached to the tripod socket or neck strap attached to the eyelits on the body, which over time will probably stress and possibly warp the mount on the camera. Just wanted to make the point that Canon is not crazy putting IS in the lenses, it is just future proof. PS: No, I will never use a Frankenlens (with FTZ adaptor). Usually I go by what looks good composition-wise unless I'm demonstrating something and need to be at a specific FL. But it's not sharp until after f2 and there's a lot of fringing. Free shipping. @io_bg - The 24-70 is obviously just one focal. Both have VR built in. And no battery grip option. Obviously this is just the beginning for Nikon. Meaning that the bokeh is not creamy/dreamy, there's no "melt" and shapes remain discernible. Now, as the year winds down, we're highlighting some of our standout products of the year. What will it do that I cannot do with my current cameras? But there are plenty of other FF lenses there are used on APS-C bodies. Where can I found this information? DPR staff, you may want to check the video crop statement made here... bad information has a way of propagating, and can severely affect a camera’s launch. However, I would certainly agree that Nikon should not stop here, at the basement level, but also bring equivalents to say the Fuji XF18-55mm/2.8-4 or the Sony E 10-18mm/4. What's a flippy screen? @T3. Canon's APS-C and FF mirrorless systems use two entire different, incompatible lens mounts: EF-M for APS-C and RF for full frame. The Z50 launches alongside the 16-50mm f/3.5-6.3 pancake and 50-250mm f/4.5-6.3 'Z DX' lenses, both of which have their own VR systems. Not sure who it's aimed at to be honest, I guess Nikon must have done some market research. However, comparing the 85S to the 105mm f1.4G, hhhmmm... that is a mighty-tall claim. This telephoto lens should be perfect for portraits on-a-budget or wildlife photography, for example. DJI's second-generation Pocket camera includes a long list of useful upgrades including a wider, faster lens, a larger sensor, more resolution, improved audio and an optional handle that significantly improves control and supports live streaming. The Z50 is (in my opinion) aimed more at entry to enthusiast user & just an SD card is fine for that. If you buy the Z50 with the kit lenses, there is really not an upgrade path to the Z6. Power zoom is needed for video because sometimes you need to keep recording and need to zoom. Now, three months later, the company has confirmed in a statement that the personal information of past and current employees was taken from its servers. Serious Question - WHY should I want THIS camera? Do you know what a “ deal breaker” means? I bought this to replace my aging Sony A6000 and I am pleasantly surprised with the degree of upgrade it makes. Agreed that the XQD would be nice but not a dealbreaker. The Z mount supports both the NIKKOR Z DX and NIKKOR Z FX formats, so all NIKKOR Z lenses, including the NIKKOR Z DX 16-50mm f/3.5-6.3 VR and NIKKOR Z DX 50-250mm f/4.5-6.3 VR lenses released at the same time, as well as the S-Line lenses which demonstrate an outstanding optical performance, can be used with the Z 50. PZ's are just difficult when you want a specific FL, even experienced photographers sometimes have a difficult time nailing down an exact FL with them. EOS M users are totally shut out of the Canon RF lens system. Yes on the Z6 you are down to (I think) a 10MP image as a result (the Z7 resembles more of what you'd get on a Z50 (about 19.5MP in DX Crop mode for the Z7). Both have VR built in. It's just easier to do with a manual zoom where you can very easily nudge it just a mm or two. As you can see in this image, the Z50 is a small camera, with a relatively sparse top-plate, but generously-sized grip. The foot also helps with balancing the rig when on a tripod too, so it does serve a purpose. I really hope Nikon is not going to cripple its Z-mount DX system as it has done with its DX DSLR cameras…. So while this may look like a fail for Nikon, it's just they are just doing what the others are. Considering that it only has two native zoom lenses for the Z50 so far (the DX 16-50mm f/3.5-6.3 and DX 50-250mm f/4.5-6.3) it also means that buyers can use full-frame Z mount lenses â¦ Nikon introduced two Z DX lenses with the Z50, the 16-50mm f/3.5-6.3 and 50-250mm f/4.5-6.3. Fascinating, and daring. Lenses â The Nikon Z50 has two new DX-format lenses, but lacks bespoke native options If the Nikon Z50 has one weakness right now, itâs native lens â¦ That's why all of Canon's, Sony's, and Nikon's FF mirrorless bodies have APS-C crop mode. Nikon sells the Z50 as body only, body+16-50mm, and body+both lenses. The compact and lightwâ¦ In addition to other benefits, while a camera manufacturer can make a camera smaller, one cannot make one's hand smaller. Maybe it's got nice IQ (what lens doesn't between f3.5 and f6.3? It has a similar sensor as the higher-end Nikon D7500 (which is excellent). In fact, you can customize the same “OK” button to instantly zoom to 100% view, which is pretty cool! All the DX kit lenses from Nikon I believe are plastic, so you are partially correct. I just haven't decided on the Z50 or the Z6. Gorgeous bokeh! I was considering a Z50 as a toy. (including Canon 6D, 90D, Oly M-1). It's available in Canon EF, Fuji X, Leica M, M42, MFT, Nikon F, Pentax K and Sony E mounts and the first units are expected to ship in January 2021. You are looking at this from an enthusiast perspective and ignoring the actual market for the M series which is all about portability. Z 50 works with all the cutting-edge NIKKOR Z lenses and approx. @LGO:What's become apparent with Nikon's Z lenses is that Nikon's improved their manufacturing tolerances. Alongside the Z50, Nikon have also launched the first two lenses in a fledgling range of DX Z-mount lenses, a 16-50mm pancake zoom and 50-250mm super-telephoto zoom. While this might not be ideal for those who want to use gloves or have issues finding the area to touch when looking through the viewfinder, I personally did not find it to be much of a hassle in the field for a number of reasons. Conversely, the dirty little secret of creamy/dreamy bokeh is the PRESENCE of spherochromatism. To your point though about the kit lenses. your thing about going to specific FLs at a push of a button would be nice, but I don't know of many (or any) cameras that have this feature. So you'll never be able to mount any RF lens on any EOS M body. The 65mm T2 completes Vazen's set of anamorphic lenses for the Micro Four Thirds system. Planning to treat yourself to a new full-frame camera this holiday season? For Nikon to simply say - "Here's the one and only FTZ adaptor" - and to present us with one with a non-removable foot - well, it shows an amazing lack in imagining what its customers want! I think the DPR review called it really sharp, etc., but that's ridiculous. Deal Breaker generally means you don't like something for one or more reasons. It's very hard for people who want to get a specific FL to do it with a PZ without a zoom scale to judge. I think they could have put another custom button or two on the other side, so yes there is always room for extra controls I suppose, but some people act like the camera is unusable without the top plate being full of buttons and dials. For example, if you shoot a Canon EF body with a non-power zoom attached, the EXIF information reports the zoomed focal length. What I gained is obvious. But if it's maybe a model shoot for a photography club, some of the DX users might be using FF glass. It really seams to me that the body size and design is aimed at higher price point, more like a competitor to the Fuji X-T3. I also bought the FTZ adapter for my AF-S lenses. And as T3 said, the Z6/Z7 have DX crop mode. But it's stupid not to allow Canon users to use the lenses they have. ), but I'd rather have a 16-50mm f1.8-2.8 or even f2.8-4. Given the negative tone in DPR's articles on the Z50 which I have not seen done with other cameras plus the outright incorrect information on the 4k crop, I can't help but think the same. I bought it all from B&H and they gave me a decent deal. Lacking the upper status screen included on the Z6 and Z7, the biggest control on the top of the Z50 is a large, non-locking exposure mode dial. However the ZDX lenses perform, unless they are in the f0.75ish or faster and/or 16mm (24mm equiv) or shorter won't really benefit from the Z-mount's dimensions. The upgrade path is real, for the simple fact that many people start with APS-C and also happen to buy APS-C lenses. I put together a summary table below that highlights the key differences between these cameras: As you can see from the above table, the Nikon Z50 has pretty fierce competition at similar price points. And of course DX primes. And being a mirrorless camera, it has some features like Eye AF, Focus Peaking and other useful on-screen information overlays that are not found on any of the above DSLRs. That part has not changed. Have a look.
