Not all this weak sauce early adopter taxation, and planned-out incremental updates/upgrades. So much fail in your post. Your observation of minimal fringing makes perfect sense, as aberration absence is part of the sharpness equation. I use PZ for photos all the time, have no issues and find it absolutely no different in usage from normal zooms. If they really intended the Z50 to be a transition body then have both would have been the way to go. I'm jealous of that 16-50. Then you totally misread and missed the point of that article. Read our full review to find out how it performs. For normal lenses that you are ever going to see in Z mount APS-C, that Fuji article has no useful information. Not everyone will be using them, especially initially, and will be adapting their F-mount glass which does not have this spare ring, which is what I'm getting at. The arguable king of bokeh, the 135mm f2DC Nikkor, has an ungodly amount of spherochromatism. Yes, these are comparable in size and price. But there are plenty of other FF lenses there are used on APS-C bodies. The Nikon Z50 is the first-generation Z-mount DX mirrorless camera with an APS-C sensor. Agreed that the XQD would be nice but not a dealbreaker. No, this is a tilty screen, flippy is great for vlogging, It does flip down 180 degrees, so you can vlogg hand-held, @DRDL ----> Tripod mount can't use gorilla pid unless I create a contraption to attach it to the hot-shoe, then flip the camera upside down, Tilty screen is great for still shooters... ;-). Nikon isn't aiming this camera at people currently lumbered with 6D, 90D and M-1. All that’s needed is a simple firmware update, which we are yet to see. I get to use my APS-C lenses that I already own. Nikon has paired its Z 50 kit with a number of accessories to create an all-in-one set of gear to get up and shooting video and vlogs right out of the box. Even Canon, Nikon, and Sony understand this advantage, which is why all their FF mirrorless bodies have built-in APS-C crop mode! 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. A detailed list of camera specifications is available at NikonUSA.com. PS: No, I will never use a Frankenlens (with FTZ adaptor). That might be useful if you are expecting an 8mm f/1 APS-C Z mount lens to emerge from Nikon, but I wouldn't hold my breath while waiting. Like two more custom buttons or something. I'm sure it's something that could be implemented via firmware but again, I don't foresee it happening. Canon gave RF bodies APS-C crop mode and made their RF adapter compatible with EF-S. @T3. The MTF of the two ZDX lenses are quite impressive and far better than any kit lens available from Sony, Fuji and Canon. @Critical ThinkerAnd Olympus brought the 12-50 (24-100 FF equiv) kit lens with the E-M5. Fuji’s AF system on the X-T30 is also quite fast, although I would rank Nikon’s AF system to be more accurate for still subjects (more on AF performance later in the review). However, there is one major issue I noticed from the get-go when handling the Z50, and it is the same thing Nikon engineers plagued the Nikon Z6 and Z7 cameras with – there is no way to get rid of all the overlay information when using the LCD! Just look how much space it occupies on that 'compact' body. The back of the camera has seen more stripping of buttons to take a more minimalistic approach, which I personally welcome. Really sharp with typical "sharp lens bokeh". Let’s take a closer look at the camera and its specifications. Lenses which don't benefit at all from the wide throat or short flange-focal like the 50mm f1.8S and 85mm f1.8s are stunningly sharp. And despite the big size of the Z-mount, Nikon left plenty of room between the mount and the grip to make the camera comfortable even for those with larger hands. THAT will be the portrait Z lens. As to the FX lenses on DX bodies, it depends on the event or situation. However, when compared to the higher-end Nikon D7500, the Z50 shows some weaknesses. (Although without a click wheel-type control, it feels a little awkward, to me at least--Fuji for example has a control ring that clicks, even though it's still electronically controlled aperture). Tiny size with no annoying power zoom and even an aperture ring! Canon corrected this bad decision by allowing EF-S lenses to be used on their RF full frame bodies. Pair the Z 50 with the NIKKOR Z DX 16-50mm f/3.5-6.3 VR or NIKKOR Z DX 50-250mm f/4.5-6.3 VR to effectively reduce camera shake as both lenses come with dual detect optical vibration reduction which means every image will be sharper than ever. Here, we are looking at the Samyang MF 14mm f/2.8​,which has all sorts … At least DSLR DX has faster lenses with the 18-55mm VR II f/3.5-5.6 and 55-200mm VR II f/4-5.6. Video. I also bought a FlashPoint (Godox) TT350n speedlite from Adorama. I am happy to see all the button and menu customizations that Nikon allows with the Z50. Similar to other Nikon cameras, the buttons and the dial are all plastic as well. Maybe it's got nice IQ (what lens doesn't between f3.5 and f6.3? They could also do a variation of what I mentioned--maybe not a removable collar but one that rotates so you can rotate it up 180 degrees for hand held uses. I'd like to see Nikon introduce a second FTZ adaptor -- a more compact one, without the "foot" at the bottom -- which would be more suitable for this Z50. The Nikon Z DX 16-50mm f/3.5-6.3 VR turned out to be an absolutely fantastic lens. By making this body just a couple millimeters larger to accommodate the "15" batteries, I think Nikon would've stumbled into a whole new target market they didn't anticipate: their existing customer base wanting a fun, inexpensive addition. I'm talking with guys every week on football sidelines who are waiting and wondering where the fast long lenses are. Oh, and it's a lot of fun too. w/ NIKKOR Z DX 16-50mm f/3.5-6.3 VR & NIKKOR Z DX... Nikon Nikkor telephoto Lens Z 50-250mm, Black, Hands-on with new Sigma 35mm and 65mm F2 DG DN lenses, Our favorite gear, rewarded: DPReview Awards 2020, Nikon Z50 gets Animal Detection AF, Z6 and Z7 get minor improvements via firmware updates, Nikon announces new Z50 'Creator's Kit' with a slew of accessories at a discount, Nikon releases major firmware updates for its Z6 and Z7 cameras, minor update for the Z50, Nikon is now offering a 30-day trial for the Z50 camera with its 'Yellow Program' initiative, Down in Nuawluns: Nikon Z50 sample gallery, Sigma 65mm F2 DG DN Sample Gallery (DPReview TV), Sigma 35mm F2 DG DN Sample Gallery (DPReview TV), Laowa 15mm F4.5 Zero-D Shift lens sample gallery (DPReview TV). These lenses are … But like you mention, it's really a whole other system that ya gotta make room for. Sure that you can but if you want to keep a play levelled field you have to compare the Nikon lens to the Fuji XC equivalent not to the XF that bought alone costs ($699) nowadays, just less 157 bucks than the Z50 body ($856,95 at B&H). One of the rings are assignable. You could even use DX lenses on the Z7 or Z6 if you really wanted to. Just messin' with you cuz i know you've missed me lately. The throat is way excessive though. Unfortunate that all that Nikon pro lenses do not have lens-stabilization ;). @LGO:What's become apparent with Nikon's Z lenses is that Nikon's improved their manufacturing tolerances. If you're looking for a high-quality camera, you don't need to spend a ton of cash, nor do you need to buy the latest and greatest new product on the market. Now, as the year winds down, we're highlighting some of our standout products of the year. Agree about the no IBIS. But at least all of Nikon's pro mirrorless lenses can be used on their DX mirrorless lenses because Nikon's entire mirrorless system uses a single lens mount: the Z mount. The new Nikon Z 50 takes full advantage of Nikon’s larger Z mount, providing creators of all types with the most innovative optical system for superior image and video quality. 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. It also comes as part of a kit at B&H, at Ador… Canon mostly has slow zoom lenses in its EF-M lens line-up. With a manual zoom, I can go straight to 35mm. Obviously this is just the beginning for Nikon. We've combed through the options and selected our two favorite cameras in this class. 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). Match the value for the Nikon Z-mount with the APS-C sensor and understand what that means. Planning to treat yourself to a new full-frame camera this holiday season? The Z50 is wonderful, but the star of the current Nikon DX mirrorless gear is that little 16-50 pancake zoom. Since its release in late 2019, users have been unable to recalibrate or fine-tune their Apple Pro Display XDR. The most common assignment might be aperture for those who are used to shooting with an older AF-D lens with the aperture ring (or other brands that had them, like Fuji). My Sony 35/1.8 OSS is even smaller. I think you need to look at more samples taken with the Nikon 85mm f/1.8 S. The bokeh does not look like that taken with the the Nikonr 50mm f/1.8 S. I have both lenses and they are not close when it comes to bokeh, with the later can be abrupt and rough. Another issue with the Z50 has to do with its LCD tilt-down screen. Overall, considering the price point of the Nikon Z50 vs its features, it certainly looks like a very appealing camera. Who would mount 24-70 2.8 on a Z50 anyway? I'm actually thinking about dumping my Canon for the Nikon Z. The manual zoom ring is a nice feature. They should've included more controls on this to further distinguish it from the silly brick that is the Sony 6000 series. I have the adapter but putting my 70-200 2.8 on the M messes with the AF sensor and we won't even talk about putting my 200 1.8 on the M. There is no upgrade path with the M from crop to FF. On an FX-format camera with a DX lens mounted, the camera will automatically engage its built-in DX crop mode, thus recording an image only from the center section of the sensor. I was sort of hoping for a circular one, with a removal collar, sort of like how Tamron does it with their 70-200 G2. So pour a tall cold one and get ready to treat yourself, 2020 style. 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. Convenience zooms are a perfect companion for this camera. Nikon wanted the Z50 to be marketed as a camera for vloggers, so it designed the LCD screen so that it can be tilted down, as shown below: Except, considering that most vloggers are going to be using a tripod to mount the camera on, and the tripod socket is literally in the middle of the LCD screen, I wonder what in the world Nikon engineers were thinking when they came up with this novel idea. In other words, the body always knows what the focal length is; Canon merely believes it isn’t something worth displaying in the viewfinder. The choice is mine. If I were to base the above comparison on things like lens/accessory selection, ergonomics and camera menu system, I would place Fuji as the #1 choice for me personally, followed by Sony and Canon. Before we go into the camera details, let’s see how the Z50 compares to its Nikon F counterparts and direct competitors on the market. The Canon RF 800mm F11's unique combination of telephoto reach, affordability and light weight will likely enable even more people to do the same. With a 1.8x squeeze, the lens produces a more pronounced anamorphic effect than the 1.33x lenses offered by Sirui, albeit at a much higher cost. Power zoom is needed for video because sometimes you need to keep recording and need to zoom. But whether it clicks or not is a matter of personal preference. You can get the excellent Fuji XF 18-55mm F2.8-4.0 OSS as a kit: https://www.amazon.com/Fujifilm-X-T20-XF18-55mmF2-8-4-0-OIS-Lens-Silver/dp/B01NCVN74T/ref=sr_1_3?keywords=fuji+x-t20+18-55&qid=1570744847&sr=8-3. We compare the Canon EOS R6, Nikon Z6 II, Panasonic S5 and Sony a7 III. And a very capable camera of just 400 grams with a great grip. Nikon says they're gonna come out with a sports Z though. 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. The 50, 105 and 150-500 are all (AFAIK) full frame so you'll have a few options. The DX-format camera can use both types of lenses (DX and FX) since the non-DX lens image circle is larger than needed on a DX-format camera. You could even use DX lenses on the Z7 or Z6 if you really wanted to. @ LGO. The second lens is the Nikon NIKKOR Z DX 50-250mm F/4.5-6.3 VR zoom. In spite of DPR's conviction that there will be no M5 II, I think we will see one (or maybe and M3 or M1) and it will still be very portable (although possibly with a bigger battery). Cheers! And those few times I didn't it was usually due to my mistake (ex. Once … On the flip side, tiny little mirrorless bodies are a PITA when you are using a big lens, unless the lens is so big that it needs a tripod. Announced on October 10, 2019, together with two compact DX lenses specifically designed for the camera, the Nikon Z50 packs many attractive features, putting it above entry-level DSLRs like Nikon D3500 and D5600. Nikon sells the Z50 as body only, body+16-50mm, and body+both lenses. It's a harder to predict a 'super'-zoom; 14-140, 16-200 or 18-270 ? 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. 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. It just depends. @io_bg - People should be allowed to make whatever choices they want when it comes to lens and body combos. So if they someday upgrade to FF, it is an obvious advantage if they are still able to use their APS-C lenses. Most of the known Z lenses won't have VR built in (the 70-200mm f/2.8 and the three known Z DX lenses are the exceptions). Sporting a 20.9 MP DX sensor, fast phase-detection autofocus system, 11 FPS continuous shooting speed, ability to record high-quality 4K video at up to 30 FPS without any crop (Full HD slow motion at up to 120 FPS) and a compact, lightweight construction with great body build and ergonomics, the Nikon Z50 is certainly a serious camera to consider for new and existing Nikon shooters. not paying attention to shutter speed in low light). That's not the case with Nikon's and Sony's mirrorless systems where there is total cross compatibility between APS-C and FF. For small lenses, you don't need a foot on the adapter. Too expensive!! Lastly, if you own older AF-D type lenses, keep in mind that they will work just fine on the D7500, but they will not autofocus on the Z50 with the FTZ adapter. So what is the purpose of the tilt-down screen? Nikon should curtainly make a lens like the Fuji 18-55/2.8-4, but this has nothing to do with the cheap and tiny 16-50mm, which compairs with the Fuji 15-45mm. Nikon will probably offer their 16-80mm within a few years. Fascinating, and daring. It's not that people don't know what they're doing, but rather you just don't have the fine-tuned focal length control as you do with a manual zooming lens. Maybe out east it will be a big hit? Even when I wanted small and light m43 cameras, I choose the bigger E-M1 and GHx series for a better grip. PZ is great for video but horrible for photos. While testing out the camera, I purposefully limited myself to only the two DX kit zoom lenses the camera came with, so that I can demonstrate their capabilities and see if they are sufficient for most day-to-day needs of photographers. The foot also helps with balancing the rig when on a tripod too, so it does serve a purpose. 2-3 custom buttons probably isn't enough for efficient/quick access. But again, this was done for marketing reasons is my guess, and to perhaps entice people to upgrade if and when an IBIS-enabled APS-C body is released. The 1.4 crop factor sensors were so much better than the 1.6 plus 1.4 allowed you to use them indoors where you need a little wider frame. Actually, I am surprised to see that it's not that small. I mean, if you have a S line lens, and you think, lets put that one on my smaller Z50, and then it is not stabilized. It's a fantastic lens. Add the 85 1.8 Z at $800 and for the cost of the Z6 Kit with the 24-70 you have a nice foundation into the Z-series. Sadly, no such lenses are on the roadmap for the immediate future. It is possible to shoot in tough situations without IBIS and OIS. "I just wish Nikon would spend less attention on maximum sharpness, and instead put more effort into bokeh on the Z lenses...". The Z-mount's short flange-focal will actually benefit the ZDX lenses from about 24mm (36mm equiv) and shorter. Take a look. Do you know what a “ deal breaker” means? That’s under the current price of the 20.9-megapixel D7500. That said, the future 18-140mm really should be a 16-160mm, at least. First of all, the grip of the camera is deep and very comfortable, especially when comparing it to other cameras like Sony A6400, Fuji X-T30 and Canon EOS M6 II. Well anything at all would be useful. I am happy it is not a flipout screen : I do not shoot video... :-). Flippy screen Nikon, put a Fcukng Flippy screen on this thing! You are looking at this from an enthusiast perspective and ignoring the actual market for the M series which is all about portability. Yes but NIkon has had almost the same classic grip (that is found on the Z6/Z7) going back many years... even the old D1's grip resembles a very similar grip to what we have today on the Z6/Z7 bodies. Then there's the R which muddies the waters even more for Canon. There were only two lenses release at launch for this new system. 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. Nikon's latest Z-series camera, the third in the lineup, features an APS-C sensor and is being launched alongside two DX-format kit zooms. The mount made it larger than the others. At the Z50 price point, though, you don't find much with sensor-VR/IS, so I suspect Nikon made this decision by the usual bean-counting way (e.g. I like bigger cameras. I nearly bought one of these on impulse over lunch today, but what got in my way is the fact that it uses a different battery. To your point though about the kit lenses. A personal thing of course but I wouldn't buy a camera with a fully articulated one. Today, at its Snapdragon Tech Summit, Qualcomm revealed the details of its new Snapdragon 888 system on a chip (SoC) that, amongst performance and battery improvements, offers an array of impressive photographer features, should Android smartphone manufacturers choose to make the most of them. I have pretty much decided that I am going to sell my 1Ds Mark III, EOS M and all lenses and flashes and put that money into the Nikon Z lineup. . It sports the latest and the fastest EXPEED 6 processor. Nikon recently launched its Yellow Program, a worry-free initiative that allows photographers to try out their Z50 camera for 30 days. Yes just like every other kit lens produced. 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. @Michael. I disagree. I guess it only works when shooting selfies handheld! It does not work if you mount the camera on…anything. True, those cheapo ones are probably comparable. Although it does make me wonder why they can't put little dots on the PZ lense barrels to indicate FLs? The Z-mount essentially keep the camera body right-sized for a proper grip. Not sure who it's aimed at to be honest, I guess Nikon must have done some market research. If you buy the Z50 with the kit lenses, there is really not an upgrade path to the Z6. @T3. Questions of ease of use, pleasure of use, target use, and so on, are the issues. I like the flexibility of both. In our latest buying guide we've selected some cameras that might be a bit older but still offer a lot of bang for the buck. It's not as difficult because of the Z-mount. No IBIS is a real bummer it is easier to make it for the smaller sensor... look what Panasonic offer for a lot less with the G80-85. What's a flippy screen? @sirhawk But that's exactly what power zoom would excel at! bigger. I also bought the FTZ adapter for my AF-S lenses. It makes a lot more sense to offer a PZ lens separately for the video enthusiasts. I agree. I had D7500 kit for a year and I sold right away after coming back from a trip barely using it because I had to carry big camera bag. Please note that the above table primarily compares key camera specifications and does not take into account the camera system as a whole. Best then to wait and see how even the simplest and least expensive Nikkor ZDX 16-50mm performs relative to whatever you currently using in APS-C to understand this. Nikon has also shared a … This telephoto lens should be perfect for portraits on-a-budget or wildlife photography, for example. It has a very fast continuous shooting speed of 11 FPS, and it can shoot high-quality 4K videos with no cropping. A me piace. C'mon Nikon, push the boundaries just a little bit ! Remember when Nikon lost their sports shooter market to Canon because of IS/VR? Nikon is actually one of the last to do it. Nice but i don't like when prices are lower than other products one assumes the buyer is an entry level photographer when its possible that the money is the issue. Stop being so idealistic. I suspect Nikon is merely porting its new lens mount to a wider, more cost conscious, consumer audience. That's not the case with Canon's mirrorless.
